Welcome to my St. Patrick’s Day celebration!
TODAY’S THE DAY!
You see, I was lucky enough to be named “Colleen,” which means “girl” in Ireland. I have only known two other “Colleen’s” in my life. My name is unusual in America but seems to be gaining popularity.
I have been told that if you are named Colleen, your parents did it to connect to their Irish roots. I don’t know about that. I was born from parents who were German/Russian immigrants. Nevertheless, I enjoy celebrating the Irish roots of my first name!

Each year on March 17th across the world, we join together as the Irish and the “Irish at heart,” to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The holiday began with the humble beginnings of a religious feast day to honor the patron saint of Ireland.
Now, St. Patrick’s Day has become an international celebration of Irish culture featuring parades, green rivers, green beer, and GREEN TEA! Did I mention shamrocks and green?
This year, I decided to celebrate with a contest where one lucky reader can win a signed copy of The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy, my debut novel published in January of this year.
This is my first contest and if all goes well, I will be doing more of these in the future.
