She Speaks with Wisdom…

Introducing the new blog site of Ms. Olivia C. Grubbs, my granddaughter. I encourage you to check out her entries, especially if you are in college, seeking a different perspective on life, spirituality, or just to get an original insight into the mindset of today’s young Christian on campus.

Popcorn and Proverbs

My name is Olivia Grubbs and I am a college student. I am the daughter of an entrepreneur so ideas and business ventures run in my blood. Since the age of 7, I have been known to come up with impulsive ideas and draw out business plans. They start off hot with encouragement from my father, until they slowly die with my motivation. These little projects have never stopped, from a bakery I ran for three summers (successfully) to a nail business I started the summer before college (not so successful).

Today, I had one of those ideas. I came out of the new movie “Joy,” starring Jennifer Lawrence, feeling empowered and ready to conquer the world. I had no idea how I would do that or under what category my conquering would be; after all, I wasn’t trying to become a dictator… just a success. I told a friend…

About joycegodwingrubbs2

Some call me retired: I am RE-FIRED. I have written 15 books, plus 3 written as a "ghost writer". I no longer offer the novels as printed books, having them only available as Kindle Ebooks since my retirement as a novelist. Twelve books are on Kindle eBooks: collectively they are known as The Greyhound Lady Walking suspense series.They are real cases fictionalized into suspense stories to protect identities..( no victim/survivor names were compromised, and workers and locations were protected.) I also co-authored a non-fiction book: Footsteps Out of Darkness: The Annabelle Kindig Story . It is available on Amazon under the name of Annabelle Kindig. I have traveled, written from the heart, and found an audience that appreciates my "platform". The catalyst to writing the novels was the realization that if I died, I would take all my amazing experiences in these real cases with me; and believe me few have lived 5 lives in one. It would "silence the voices" of the victim/survivors whose triumphs are written into these novels. The suspense series was written in part with the collaboration of police woman and sex crime expert Trula Ann Godwin. In addition to the novels, I have written as a ghost writer for a World War II veteran who fought in the South Pacific aboard the USS Maryland in all the major battles. I have also written a non-fiction book recording oral history stories of my family members beginning with the 1930's to present. There are sixty-six "legacy" stories with pictures. It was recently published as a private printing for family and close associates only. I am a published photo journalist having won the 2009 Editor's Choice Award for internet freelance news articles and pictures of the Cedar Rapid's Iowa flood victim accounts and their personal struggles.. My husband and I are in our 52nd year together (only one blip on the marital radar together), and we have adopted three greyhounds; Dex, Big Buddy and Baby Doll. These were the inspirations in the Greyhound Lady Walking suspense series We have eleven grandchildren, 7 grandsons and 4 granddaughters. My three children live in Iowa, Wisconsin and Ohio.
