Winner of the 2012 Global eBook Award for Humor, the collection of short stories in Postcards From Home explores the chaotic and often hilarious world of ‘life in the family lane’, seen through the eyes of a mother of two precocious children.
Tag along with Sylvia on excursions to the supermarket and road trips to the cottage; read about headstrong puppies and Halloween costumes gone wrong; and join the family as they prepare for Father’s Day, Christmas holidays, impending job transfers, and the first week of school.
Infused with large doses of tongue-in-cheek humor, the collection of stories in Postcards From Home will entertain you and at the same time make you thankful that you’re not a member of Sylvia’s little family.

In this short story Mona discovers that life isn’t always fair, but then again, who ever said that it would be?
What does job burnout feel like? Join a nurse as she works through her day; get inside her head as she attempts to balance her needs with her patient’s needs. Will she make it to the end of her shift? Will her patient?
“It rained the day we buried him, deep in the ground.” So begins ‘A Small Steel Box’, a story about every parent’s worst nightmare. How does a mother or father go on after the death of a child? This compelling short story will make you ask the same question. Could you go on?
The poems in I Dream In Color are as honest as they are passionate, capturing familiar life events such as birth, miscarriage, aging and death and exploring relationships and common problems such as abuse.
