Check out my book! I just got my first review… ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
It was such a whim to end up writing a whole book at all! It seems like once the idea popped into my head, the story caught fire and kept spreading until it turned into an entire novel. Self-published, self-edited and certainly not perfect but I was pretty proud to get it all out on paper/ebook.
And, my first review is five stars!!!
I’m not taking that as going beyond self-publishing and who knows if I’ll ever write another but, it’s a pretty good feeling that someone liked it. Hopefully more will start coming through. And, I hope just as good!

Siobhan O’Neil is a middle-aged, Rock and Roll obsessed mother of two adult sons who decided it was time to follow a dream. I’ve always written and have a very active imagination which is definitely highlighted within these pages. I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed writing this rock and roll gem.
Welcome to my first book full of rock and roll, romance, and some mischief that is semi- biographical but full of fantasy.
Aislinn had endured two bad marriages and was determined to get a few dreams fulfilled before she didn’t have the option anymore. She was ready to rebuild her identity and confidence that had been stripped from her over the course of twenty-five years. Little did she know that one of her dreams would lead her back to something she thought she’d never do again.
Cillian had spent the last thirty-plus years touring with his band. He had never married and had just ended a fifteen year relationship that he realized had been full of lies, greed and cheating. He figured he had plenty of opportunity to find female company if he really wanted it but he really wasn’t interested.
Could two people who had endured so much find love again?
They go together. I’ve just started delving into this now popular way of treating all kinds of ailments. I started with 6 scents that have effects on mood since that is my main fascination with it all. I know that scents effect my mood so I believe in this…not just jumping on the bandwagon. I actually use the oils!
Here are some pics of the jewelry I have made for my ETSY Shop… Beads And Maille
A looooong story anyway. Okay, a book.
I started writing and I couldn’t stop!
It’s a semi-autobiographical novel. The truth comes with the way I used to fantasize about being some rockstar’s muse. The rest of the story? The way I’ve would have been if the fantasies had truly materialized.
I had no plan. I just got the urge, started writing and, the ideas kept coming. I don’t even know if I could do it again if I tried!
I have ideas for a sequel…we’ll see what happens…

I’ve been getting sales! It’s slow but it’s happening. I get such satisfaction out of creating that just the thought that someone would pay money to have one is humbling and exciting!
I recently started metal stamping and a friend has requested quite a few for Christmas presents. Bless her. So far, the people she has gifted with them, love them. I’m not sure how I’m going to market them as custom (15 letter limit? Specific sayings?…) but, I’ll figure it out and I’ll get it done. Either way, it’s fun and I’m going to keep practicing and doing.
I’ve devoted myself since the holidays to making my shop a daily effort. I used to only work it during the holidays but, I feel as though I want to make this a major part of my effort. I’ve been enjoying being able to make jewelry and share my creations on a regular basis.
when I post in my shop, I’ll be posting here too.
when I find new inspiration, I’ll share here too.
Here are my latest Etsy listings:
I finally sat down and made myself a pair of earrings. I’ve been so obsessed with making sellable jewelry that I’ve let myself go! Here’s what I did:
I bought the peace signs a loooooong time ago meaning to make earrings for me. I bought the small silver plated rings in June for another project but, I like chainmaille so much that I wanted to incorporate it into my little project.
It was practice for me. I’ve been using primarily aluminum rings which really don’t require any tools because they are so soft and easy to open and close. Silver, stainless steel and copper aren’t quite as easy especially the little tiny ones. I want to try to make longer chains using gold, silver and stainless steel rings.
I also have a pattern for a chainmaille vest that I promised my boyfriend about 2 years ago…time has been against me. It’s going to be a big, tedious process but I’m determined. I bought the recommended tools (bent nose pliers) and I used them for the chainmaille in these earrings. They worked beautifully.
For practice, I’m planning on making some more of the small chainmaille jewelry for myself and then plan on selling it in my Etsy shop.
Let me know what you think!
