From C.B.~


“For Meghan in hope that she will keep her own journal someday!  ~Affectionately, C.B.”

Carol Burdick a.k.a. C.B., was a professor of English at Alfred University.  A published author, mother and much more, she was an inspiration to me and my writing.  She passed away April 12th, 2008 at the age of 80.  I think of her every time I sit down to write.  I just found her book Woman Alone A Farmhouse Journal which she gave me on the last day of a creative writing class she taught.  I opened it and found the message above.  Little signs of people who have passed, gently guiding you.  They are everywhere.  You don’t have to look too hard, you just have to see them.

Meghan K. Dwyer is an aspiring writer, misanthrope, cystic fibrosis advocate, wife and mother of four beautiful children. She lives in rural Western New York with her husband Chris and their four children Braeden, Kian, Kelan, and Ailey. She has a love of writing and in her spare time, enjoys a good book, sharing a glass of wine with friends or family and gardening. The name of her blog A Message of Mean from Meghan was inspired by an email containing that title, which was sent to her sister and friend. Her writing is full of sarcasm and truthful, yet at times, abrasive humor. Her blog is about sharing her thoughts of her day, confessions as a mother, and opinions about life in general as a kind of therapy. Meghan has written two romance novels in her Ellington Manor Series- a three book publication. When One Door Closes and Almost Forgotten are both available now on and Barns&, as well as her other works, A Message of Mean from Meghan and newly published Confessions of a Bad Mom. She is currently working on Hoping for Happiness, the final book in the Ellington Manor Series.
