I started my blog, Raising Drama, in 2005. My oldest child, my daughter, Lauren, was in her early teens. I found that the network of parents that I had had when she was younger, had started to disappear. She was meeting new friends and I didn’t know their parents. The friends didn’t call the house phone, they started to communicate through Social Networking sites . . . and then came cell phones.
As she and her friends navigated the difficult waters of adolescence, I started to write about what I had learned from their experiences. The blog grew from there and it now includes stories about my life; my genealogical research and stories I have been able to recreate from the information I have discovered (along with family recipes); stories about my dogs, Daisy & Duke; stories about my mother’s challenges and our relationship as her memory loss progresses; stories about ordinary people who face circumstances that make them extraordinary; and finally, posts about writing my novels, The Tin Box Trilogy, by Theresa Dodaro.
Please come and read when you have some time.
The Tin Box Secret, The Hope Chest, and Reawakening are available on Amazon.com
