about Courtney Cole

Hi, I'm Courtney!

I'm a mom, a wife, an author.  I collect hula girls (the dashboard kind, not real-live-girls) , I write books, and I read them, too.  I go into survival mode when tickled. 

Books have always been my escape, from the time I was a little girl.  After a few serious hardships in my adulthood, I've become very focused on survival skills, and not only surviving, but thriving, even in difficult situations. 

My oldest son is a recovering drug addict, my middle son is a Marine (semper fi!) and my youngest and only daughter is a high-achieving genius who struggles with anxiety.  Managing these things without losing my mind, has become an art, and I just know that other wives and mamas must feel the same. 

My grandmother was a real-life Rosie the Riveter during WWII.  She always said that a skilled woman could chew gum, talk and spit rivets at the same time.  She taught me good work ethic, how to keep a level head, and that the sky was the limit. 

And it is, ladies.  Together, we can do anything.  YOU can do anything. It doesn't matter if life is hard at the moment, (and in fact, maybe sometimes BECAUSE life is hard at the moment) you will learn to come through, to persevere. 

One of my favorite quotes is this:  "The strongest steel is forged in the fires of hell." - Sherilynn Kenyon

We are steel, ladies. We will not break.  We will rise to any occasion, we will bend in the storm, but we will straighten our backs once again every morning.
