Guest Post by Jodi Rath

Aching news, sciatic issues, lower back pains. This is the answer I give to all my ex-students that are so thrilled and excited to hear I am now a writer!

“Wow, Mrs. R—that is SO cool! I remember when I was in high school and you talked about wanting to be a writer. Remember when I joked with your in front of the entire class and said those who can—do; those who can’t—teach . . . LOL”

“Yeah, I remember . . .” grumbling under my breath.

“So, how rad is it that you are now a writer! What’s it like?”

Okay, okay—they don’t say “rad,” that’s my age speaking, but the dialogue goes something like that! My answer, well, you saw! LOL—see I can get down with the kid lingo too! Yes, I’ve wanted to write as long as I’ve known how to write a word. I am loving it. It is RAD! BUT, I’m middle-aged now and sitting for long periods wreaks havoc on my arthritic knees and sciatica. Oh, the joys of aging!

Writing Pineapple Upside Down Murder was, to me, the greatest accomplishment of my life! I do love it; it is fun and amazing and hard and tiresome and frustrating and lots of AHA moments thrown in there too! Getting to know cozy blogger and cozy readers is EXTREMELY rewarding! I’m thrilled to be here today and wish all of you reading this a non-arthritic, pain-free day!

Hisses and Blisses
