We all have them.

February 10, 2020: Job's going well, but with my insecurities and chronic aging conditions (meaning they won't go away) this is the last job I'll ever take. With any luck, they can get me (or will want to) for the next couple tax seasons anyway.

Mission Statement

To make sense out of the ludicrous.

New on 2/10/2020: Red Bird's War: What Really Happened in 1827 | #WMD #RedBird #AmericanIndian #NativeIndian #OldWest | At a sugar camp in southern Wisconsin in the spring of 1826, a French family named Methode was murdered. There was a path leading to a Winnebago camp. On July 9th, about 80 Winnebagoes arrived at Fort Crawford at Prairie du Chien to turn over six for the murders. Yet Old Decora said he never told anyone that these men were guilty. Two Winnebagoes, held for the crime for over a year, pleaded innocent to the charges. Rumors began to spread… http://bit.ly/2SpcFO4

 Grant’s Indian Wars & the Little Bighorn | #WMD #LittleBighorn #UlyssesGrant #AmericanIndian | A private’s orders leads to understanding Grant’s role in the Little Bighorn Battle. This informative, factual article written by Monette Bebow-Reinhard involves the historical events prior to the Battle of Little Bighorn. President Ulysses S. Grant was in a peculiar place; he had been the hero of the Civil War, and felt the presidency was his reward. Having been given a lion’s share of credit for re-uniting North and South, he and the army were faced with the task of uniting East and West with the railroad, making the country truly united. Grant liked Lee, by the way, and refused to let his men cheer when Lee rode off after surrendering at Appomattox.

Adam Reinhard is going to create a great cover for my next novel, Journal of an Undead, out of a photo similar to this. If you need a great cover artist, contact him at adamvreinhard@gmail.com

Introduces Moving Pictures


I do a lot of filming, videos, making a documentary, writing movie scripts, so I guess Moving Pictures for me means a little of all of this. I snagged a role in a major local film, and my role as crazy cat lady will film in Feb.

Working on Resource Manuals


There will be around 20 of them, one for each area that's large enough for a book. Wisconsin will have its own, as will Illinois and Michigan. Other states will be combined by area.

Past Updates

11/11/19: In honor of veterans I posted on FB about how all veterans need to write their stories, or find a family member to tell them to. My book, Civil War & Bloody Peace: following orders is about a great uncle and his journal was never found. To find out where he went and why took me 20 years and a master's degree. Don't let that happen in your family.  We can learn so much about our government from their stories. This week is crazy! On Wednesday I'm getting my hair cut, going to a job interview, going to a modeling interview - and with any luck I'll also get to audition for a play that night. Then the next day I have a talent audition in Milwaukee for the same group I auditioned for a casino commercial, but didn't get. They want me back! Very exciting. I also finished a great new edit of Archaeology of the Dead, and can envision me writing a series of novels where people have past life remembrances that affect their current lives. I'm going to try and update some of the chapter reads posted here. But remember, you can download a kindle sample and try before you buy! UPDATE: I had to delete the Media Press Kit. For some odd reason the PDF is turning out right. I may need help.

8/29/19: See below for a copy of Hannon's Belgian Booyah, just in time for the football party season.  Also NOW AVAILABLE on the CAMD tab, the Updated Wittry typology, free to download. Next one will come out the end of the year.


 I am a professional proofreader/editor with years of experience. If your novel is as good as you can make it, but you're not comfortable with your sentence structure, spelling grammar, punctuation, metaphors and similes, and the like, send it to me. I will edit the first 10% of your book FREE so you can see if I do what you want.  After that, the editing will only cost you $1 a page. I'm cheap because I enjoy it.
