Our Unique, Romantic, Storybook Wedding

After many wonderful years of being in love and of dreaming that we would one day get married, we finally officially became husband and wife.

Actually, although my family thought I was adorable, my blue cat-eye glasses, lisp and general ugly-ducklingness was irresistible to bullies.  I went through my share of difficulties like millions of others, but I’m glad for it now.  I think that’s why today I have such a tender heart for children who are bullied. It’s also […]

Photoblog: England a couple weeks ago. I met with John Hyde  who showed me around a bit of London to help calm my nerves before my crazy stint at Royal Albert Hall. John is  the talented musician who produced the sparkling children’s songs for my  Gingerbread CD.

My Last Name is a Heart

Years ago when I divorced, I decided to legally change my name to “Christine Marie” – the name I went by as a children’s book author. When I signed my name on the state’s name-change papers, I added a heart after my signature – like I always did.  When the papers came back, to my […]
