#ExpressYourself #Chocolate, #TeddyBears and Zombies

It's Wednesday. Hump Day? Well yes but no....It's time for the Express Yourself Weekly Blog Hop. I'll be playing catch up today since I've missed the first two weeks of October. I can't believe it's the middle of October already. Where has the time gone?

Sept. 28 - Oct. 2: 

What is my favorite kind of cookie &/or cake?

I love anything with chocolate except for German Chocolate Cake. I can't stand anything with coconut in it. Coconut tastes like cardboard. No taste what's so ever. I hate that. I don't like mild chocolate, either. The darker the chocolate the better. 

Oct 12 - Oct. 16: 

Zombies are busting through your hideout, you only have one exit, with little to spare, what 3 items do you grab?

My computer, cellphone and Honey Joe. Honey Joe has been my teddy bear since I was nine years old. He protects me from the monsters so I might need him to help me escape. Besides, I wouldn't dream of leaving my childhood bear behind the lines with zombies. He's been a great support for me during the good and bad times of my life. The photo on the right shows him and his wife, Honey Jane, reading one of my books. They really enjoyed it.

I can't believe it's been a few months since I've last blogged. I'm so sorry to my fans for the hiatus. So much has changed since I last blogged to my fans. I've been quite busy. But I'm back now.

So what have I been up to, lately?

I'm so glad you asked.

Aside from working on my studies for my PhD in Education work, I have been busy with a new educational venture. Seven weeks ago, I started a new nonprofit organization called Mountain Springs Academy. It's mission is to transform the educational experience in order to empower gifted students. We achieve this by working with parents, students and educators. You can learn more by visiting our website at The students also have a blog at The blog is maintained by the students. They can also be found on Facebook at We are working on joining other social media sites as well.

Next month is NaNoWriMo. I'm very excited about this because I have several writing projects I need to work on. I'm currently working on Lies and Deceit, book 2 of the Children of the Shawnee series. I have other novels that need to be written as well as some children's books and shorts.

Well see you next time, my fans.
