Author Spotlight - Nonnie Jules

Today the spotlight is shining on author Nonnie Jules. I met her on Twitter, and we've been chatting back for forth ever since.

Nonnie was born in TX but was relocated to Louisiana when she was a toddler.  She still lives there today with her husband and their two daughters and many, many animals. She loves to write from many genres, including poetry, fiction and non, as well as How-To guides.

She has written a wonderful book that every parent should read called "THE GOOD MOMMIES' GUIDE TO RAISING (ALMOST) PERFECT DAUGHTERS", 100 Tips On Raising Daughters Everyone Can't Help But Love!


This guide is filled with 100 tips on how you can raise girls "everyone can't help but love!" The author, Nonnie Jules takes you on a journey of how she used these tools that kept her adult daughter with her virginity still intact through high school, college and grad school.  And she proudly exclaims that it is still intact today! In her very humorous manner, she tells how she started teaching her daughters when they were still in her womb and she swears by this method.  Real-life situations along with methods on how to effectively deal with each and every one filled with a little humor thrown into the mix, makes this a really good, fun read.  The author is quick to share that she is far from being a PERFECT MOMMY ("just ask my daughters"...she says), but she is a really GOOD one and that's all you need to be to raise children who are perfectly suited to become productive, caring members of society.
Available on at Kindle: and in paperback; and Barnes & Noble:

Parent Tip #97

REMAIN CALM, EVEN IN THE MIDST OF HER TELLING YOU SOMETHING YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO HEAR.  Remember opening the door wide for her to be able to come to you with anything?  Well, here is the perfect opportunity.  Sometimes our daughters will have things to share with us that will shock us.  Sometimes to our very core.  But, we must remain calm in our words, our expressions and manner lest we make her feel as if she made a mistake by sharing with us.  Listen first and when it is your time to speak, choose your words very carefully so as not to shut the door on her sharing with you the next time.  You can do this!
