Jolie here…welcome to my little corner of the world.

If your small business is flourishing and you need the professional backup of a freelance writer, you’re in the right place. Visit my business page, Gobsmacked!, and let’s discuss your vision.

The Forgetful Files blog is where we gather around the water cooler with all of our favorite people. It began as a place to remember my “mom moments” but you will quickly find me sharing everything else that is near and dear to my heart (with a side order of sass). Grab your cuppa and come on over.

Since there aren’t enough words in this big beautiful world, I’m also writing books. 2020 is full of edits, rewrites, group critiques, and lots of laughter because, what was I thinking?

Meanwhile, I’m a southern California girl raising five crazy kids with my Hubby. I regret to inform you that there is no retirement from this position. My oldest just turned 29 and my youngest is sweet 19 but the wheels keep right on turning. Who knew? I send out a monthly newsletter to keep in touch, because sometimes I forget to call my mother and she needs to know that I’m still alive.

We keep it real around here, my friends. Pull up a couch cushion and let’s have a virtual coffee.

Let’s chat! Contact me anytime, or visit me on any of the social media links in the top menu. Send me fun ideas, witty commentary, special requests… You don’t want me to get bored, do you?

Spam – despite the fact that I find it highly entertaining – is dealt with swiftly in a private ceremony involving ferrets.
