Today we're talking about how important it is (especially during the busy Holiday Season) for readers and writers to eat healthy.
We all know certain foods contribute positively to your physical health, and some foods contribute positively (in inches) to your waistline. But did you know that some foods can support brain function—and maybe even make you a better writer? It’s true! Here’s a list of snacks that will not only make you feel better physically but keep help your creative brain function better
Happy writing and reading, Keta

Yogurt (add milled flaxseed)

Berries and grapes (although you could keep almost any fruit around)

Cinnamon-spiced baked apples
Goat cheese bruschetta. ...

I'd also like to tell you about two books I have on *Special* this month. Moon of the Sleeping Bear, Book 1, and Dark Night of the Moon, Book 2 also have brand new cover art. Hope you like them.
These books are historical romance/family sagas about two sisters who were separated at birth by the evil act of midwife. Neither knew the other existed until their paths cross twenty years later when Fate steps in. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War and the Dakota Uprising, there's a little bit of everything in this generational story - betrayal, death of loved ones, Native American mythology and, of course, love! I hope you'll check them out (.99cents)
