Here is a radio interview about my life, my books, and why it is so important to me to find ways to heal myself and others:  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/johmac13/2018/11/12/johnmac-radio-show?fbclid=IwAR3ECeLLpfISDh3eS6JXtozTbu0gS0G4VPXPfsOQc81DkFJzXZQYVeAwpTA

My Heart 3

Spotlight Interview:


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 progressed; stories about ordinary people who face circumstances that make them extraordinary; and finally, posts about writing my novels, The Tin Box Trilogy, The Porcelain Doll, and The Bayman’s Daughter by Theresa Dodaro.

Please come and read when you have some time.

One thought on “About

  1. I read all five of her books and loved everyone. Can not wait to read the new book that she is working on. Absolutely loved the Bayman’s Daughter and the connection to the beautiful town of Sayville on Long Island.
