Welcome to the adventures of FHB and Me!

She’s my Great-Great Grandmother, Frances Hodgson Burnett,  famous writer of memorable books like The Secret Garden, Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess and I’m a 40-something, mother of two, creative soul, stumbling through life with a pen in one hand and a garden spade in the other.

Come along for the fun as I blow the book dust off her inspiring words and legendary life, then mix them with my personal stories for a multi-generational twist on the everyday.

"If you love The Secret Garden, the Sunshine on Your Face after Days of Endless Rain,

Friends who Tell you the Truth, or Dreaming in Full Color,

I think you are going to Like it Here." 

This is a PROJECT in PROGRESS, so stay tuned for so much more than just a weekly blog!  Coming Soon: More Merchandise, Book Clubs, Speaking Events, and if it all goes like the BIG dream in my head…several new books inspired by FHB but written by ME!

And since you are here...why don't you stay a while and...

Fear...It can be paralyzing. While some fears prevent us from falling off cliffs, other fears can keep us from jumping into that very thing in life that we were made for--- if we let the fear take hold.
