Literary Mothers

My siblings and I are going to take mom out to lunch to a fancy restaurant in Los Feliz for Mother's Day. Part of this day is to help mom set up her laptop that she bought months ago and is still sitting in a box.

I am truly grateful for mother. She was--and is--a big supporter of my creative life. She'd drive me to auditions back when I was a teenager. She didn't question my choice to go after an arts degree (she pulled double shifts to help me make tuition). She sat through performance after performance of shows I'd done. She bought several copies of my novel, just because. I could go on and on and on.

I'm proud to say I'm a mama's boy. In trolling the web on the subject of literary mothers, I found this cool website called Literary Mama (, a literary magazine for the maternally inclined. Check it out.

Happy Mom's day to your Mom, Noel!

I'm sure she's really proud of you.

Btw, my new blog's up and running, in case you're interested.

Take care and have a great week!
