And Away We Go

So here I am starting my own blog. I didn't set out putting my thoughts online, but my nephew Scotty was the tipping point. Guess I better explain.

You see, over the last several months a boatload of events happened that I couldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams. For example, I lost my home, saw my step-daughter take me to the cleaners, be forced into a housing compound for disadvantaged souls, found a soul-sister and a soul-mate, unearthed unscrupulous business practices, was threatened with bodily harm...well, you get the idea.

I thought stuff like that only happens in novels, not to people like me, Mattie Mitchell. But in fact, my exploits did turn up in a book when my pal, Mary A. Berger, got wind of my story. Before I could say, "Hell's Bells!" she published The Trouble with Mattie. What a little instigator she is.

As you might imagine, with all this going on a girl could use an outlet to marshal her thoughts. That's where Scotty's suggestion to start a blog took hold. He said, "Aunt Mattie, you've got such great stories to tell, why not start an online journal?" I was pretty skeptical at first. While not being totally ignorant on using a computer, a blog sounded rather complicated to my ears. But Scotty being a computer whiz that he is, stopped over one afternoon and within no time had me up and running. And here we are.

So watch out world, Mattie Mitchell has jumped into the digital world with both feet and can't wait to see what happens!

Get a hold of my adventure, The Trouble with Mattie, at these fine retailers.
