Keto On The Go

I’ve been on a modified Keto diet for about seven months now. I admit it wasn’t easy getting started. It’s hard to get a lot of fat into your diet in the summer, but as the cooler months prevailed, I found my groove. If you’re thinking of...

Happy Friend’s Day!

We have a new tradition in our family these days. A while back, we discovered that several of us are resources of useless facts so now, whenever we’re together, we tend to spout out a useless fact to see who else knows it. My daughter shared this one a few weeks...

Backward or Forward (or a little bit of both)

I’ve been doing some thinking the last few weeks. I know, it’s a dangerous pastime for me. Perhaps the reason is the cold weather and my recent bout with a virus that kept me indoors. Maybe it’s a natural fallout to New Years and all those...

(Some of) The Reviews Are In…

And LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE is a hit. (Whew!) Here are just a few of the comments on Amazon: “LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE is Ms. Ardito’s finest writing to date. The crisp detail she gives to the surroundings, the multi-dimensional characters, and the knowledge about...

One More Sleep ’til Lightning

Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow! I’m so excited for you all to meet my characters and read their story. Since you’ve met the main characters now, here’s a sneak peek of Chapter One: Bo McKenzie stepped off the bus and onto the ground. A cloud of red...

Two More Days til Lightning

   With two days left, I thought I’d share a deleted scene for your reading pleasure. This scene was supposed to take place when Drew convinced Bo to come to his house for dinner – again. Drew intends to grill steaks, but Bo has other ideas…...
