I’m Maureen

I help people find the best versions of themselves


So they can stop holding back and start feeling excited about life.


Maureen Scanlon


I know what
it’s like to feel like stuck. I’ve been in not-so-happy marriages, hated my job and the future it held in store, and have struggled to meet financial freedom.


Through my experiences, I’ve learned that changing negative thinking and gaining the tools needed to persevere, it’s never too late to find your calling.


I began working on improving my communication and enhancing relationships, setting goals and accountability, and nourished my spirituality and well-being. I began meditating, thinking outside-the-box, and using solution-driven techniques for a more meaningful life.


But now it’s your turn.

Whether it’s a relationship with your spouse, family, work, or yourself, I’m here to help you live free of anxiety, resentment, anger, self-doubt, and fear.


Let’s start clarifying your goals, discovering the best in yourself, and establishing lasting change so YOU can be on the road to happiness you never knew you could reach!
Call 480-258-9765 or contact me here to get started!


I’m a confidence and relationship coach with a passion for helping YOU help yourself. No, I’m not here to focus on your problems and life struggles. I want to help relieve you of any negativity and concentrate on what’s right. If you find yourself wanting more out of life and have an appetite for moving forward and improving yourself, chances are, you’re ready to take it to the next level. Now let’s begin your path to spirituality, healthy relationships, self-awareness, and clarity!


It’s never too late to dream a new dream. Love yourself, show compassion, and become the person you want to meet.

Why Cat Was MIA – My Public Warning About How Serious CAT BITES Can Be! My Nightmare Last Week…



Many of you know I am a CAT LOVER.
I have 3 Kitty Cats and yes, Mr. Boots is in CAT JAIL! LOL.


Since last Friday night? I look at my cats in a whole new light. And even after what I share with you, I can honestly say? I still love my Mr. Boots even after all this!

So, last Friday night Boots was sitting to the left of me on my chair armrest. Next to that was a round end table that has metal slates that run down to the bottom. Well, Boots paw caught in a slate up top and right underneath the table and began to freak out!!

I was trying to help get his paw out and he freaked out even more and began to bite my left fingers and then turned and chomped on the right side as he was screaming as I’m trying to prevent him from ripping off his nail from his paw or breaking his leg!!

MY Mistake #1 was having my hands by his face as I should have had one in the middle and back of his body.  Long story short there was blood everywhere and I freaked out. So I cleaned my hands with warm soapy water and started using peroxide and ointment and placed large bandaids on all the bites and cuts.

That was around 8:30 PM. My fingers were hurting and throbbing. Went to bed at about 11 PM. When I woke up the next morning I had a fever and my hands and fingers were SO Swollen like balloons!!

That is how fast the infection set in and just beginning to seep in my bloodstream.

So I called my sister-in-law to drop me off at ER and knowing I’d be there a few hours I would call my hubby when he got home from work to pick me up when I was done.

Well, that didn’t happen. After hand scans and x-rays, loads of blood taken, they admitted me to the hospital!!!! WHAT?? For just a few cat bites??? I freaked out because I have Agoraphobia and it took ALL I could muster just to GO to the ER by myself as hubby was at work till.

MY CAT HAD DONE THIS By turning into a Tiger!?

Image result for mean tiger images


Needless to stay I was in the hospital for 5 days. AND? The next morning on Sunday? Fingers and Left-Hand Surgery!!! WHAT???
Because of some Cat Bites??? OMG!

And here is why I know all my author, writer, and blogger friends will understand. Having surgery on my hands and fingers? WILL I BE ABLE To WRITE AGAIN??

It is how I make a living! Besides book promoting and marketing authors books and my own, I also write articles and blog posts and write just about every day! I’m going stir crazy already and my follow up with the plastic surgeon yesterday …He says my left index finger may need more surgery.

And? Yes, my neighbor is writing this post for me! LOL.

So, after Sundays surgery, which sheaths and slivers off Mr. Boots teeth got embedded under a few of the bites were removed and infected “dirty skin removal” around the bites and the remaining days last week in the hospital were loads of blood work taken every 4 hours, hand soaks and dressings every 5 hours, and loads of rounds of powerful antibiotics to keep the infections out of my bloodstream.

The most important part of this? I HAD NO IDEA How Bad CAT BITES ARE than Dog Bites.

Here is what you need to know and NEVER HESITATE to go to the ER if you get cat bites that penetrate your skin. And I never knew all this.


Image result for why are cat bites dangerous

Cat bites
 can be dangerous both to other animals and to humans. In their mouths, all cats carry a large number of bacteria that are capable of causing tissue infections in bite wounds. … Infected people may suffer from fever and flu-like symptoms and, rarely, but may die if proper medical treatment is not sought.

Although cats have no more germs in their mouths than dogs or people, researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that when cats bite, their sharp teeth can inject hard-to-treat bacteria deeply into the skin and joints, increasing the risk for serious infection …
They can seed bacteria in the joint and tendon sheaths.”
THIS IS WHAT happened in my Cat Bite case!


PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE to learn WHY you should go to the ER if your CAT BITES you as it could save your LIFE…  https://pets.webmd.com/cats/news/20140209/cat-bites-may-lead-to-serious-infections-hospitalizations
“Felines’ sharp teeth can inject harmful bacteria deep into joints and tissue, doctors warn”

Cat bites may look less serious than dog bites, but beware: They can cause dangerous infections, particularly when they involve the hand, new research indicates.

Although cats have no more germs in their mouths than dogs or people, researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that when cats bite, their sharp teeth can inject hard-to-treat bacteria deeply into the skin and joints, increasing the risk for serious infection.


My Own Public Warning Service and Experience About How Serious CAT BITES Can Be …


Now I need my friends and author/writer communities HELP! We do have some health insurance but it only covers HALF of what my costs are going to be.

If you would like to help a fellow WRITER with Blessings of a Donation to help cover my hospital costs, I would be deeply grateful and especially now with one more surgery coming up as well. If you need an invoice for your donation, I’d be happy to send one and just need your Email Address. No amount is too small and please know how much it will help!

You may do so through PayPal Donation Medical Fund I have here:
CatLyonMedical PayPal Me 
I will always love my 3 Cats even after all this. I will keep everyone updated as I hope to be back to work soon writing and on social media too.

And Thank You to all who have sent me well wishes as it keeps me upbeat and feeling inspired and LOVED! xoxo

Here is a Little PREVIEW and Hope You Stop By!

Author Rusty Blackwood is Pleased to Be Here Today!



Greetings everyone!

I am so excited to have been invited by Coffee Time Romance to take part in their interesting Blog feature surrounding me and my work, answer your questions – hopefully, you will have lots to inquire about in different areas – and I will be most happy to accommodate you as best I can.

I have loved to write but did not get the chance to seriously do so until 2001, when I threw my hat in the ring and began to write with the intentions of seeing where it might take me. I am not professionally trained in the field, but I have always possessed a natural flair for expressive written word accompanied by an endless imagination to support them. I self-published my first title in 2009, my first poetry collection, titled Feelings: A Rhythmic Journey in Thought. This title – which unfortunately is no longer available – was the first of twelve titles thus far.

I write in four genres, poetry, children’s short stories, adult comedy, and romantic fiction drama – my favorite genre and the one for which  I am best known.  As you can see in the photo above, I am at a bustling Indigo – in Ancaster, Ontario – signing for my newest romance/drama, The Perils of Autumn, published by Tellwell Talent, a Readers Favorite Books 5-star-award-winning novel, and now a Finalist in this year’s International Book Awards …









So stop by here and read “The Rest of Rusty’s Post” and see all the exciting happenings with the Fabulous Ladies of “Coffee Time Romance and More!”

Review and Interview With Author, Joe Siccardi on 1Rad Reader …


WELCOME JOE SICCARDI AUTHOR OF: “WISDOM FROM A FATHER” And His New Book Just Released: “My Name Is Sam”… 1Rad Reader Reviews.


6x9_BW_160 cover

INTERVIEW ~ Rad-Reader:  I saw that you wrote your book from your blog.  Any reason you chose the year 2012?


Joe:  That’s when I started blogging, figured I would start at the beginning.


Rad-Reader:  When you first start writing or posting on your blog.  Did you ever think it would take you to publish a book?


Joe: No! Never! I’m just so appreciative people seem to enjoy the little stories about life.


Rad-Reader:  Did you find your posting/writing helped you as you were writing or as you went back to see what you wrote for the day?


Joe:  I went back and updated the information, making sure I noted the circumstances at the time.


Rad-Reader:  Were your thoughts done in the morning or just whenever you thought to sit down that day to post?


Joe:  I wish I could say I was a disciplined writer, but I’m not. Some were written in the morning, but more in the afternoon or evening after my workday “inspiration.”


Rad-Reader:  How did you come up with the catchphrase: Thought to Remember?


Joe:  It just evolved. I wanted to share some positive message with each post, so I started collecting them as I went along. By far, those little add-ons are the most popular part of the book and the blog.


Rad-Reader:  Did you have an idea that you would touch on so many topics when you first wrote your “Thought to Remember”?


Joe:  No. I just wanted to add something positive to each post, even if the post itself wasn’t.


Rad-Reader:  The few entries that you had that dealt with music: “Beer with Jesus” – “The Wonder” by Dion – That whole section about Dion was something I did not know. (Though I did know the song & “The Day the Music Died” – I don’t know what we were to get from that, but I got redemption?


Joe:  I  can’t carry a tune in a bucket, but I do appreciate good music. It’s part of my life. Good music — whatever genre — evokes an emotion. Dion’s story was a story of redemption. A lot of country music is also about redemption or at least pointing to redemption. The entire book is really my journey of blessing, grace, and redemption. Music is part of that.


Rad-Reader:  Was it your idea to put the last one in about the expiration dates with food?  Side note:  I thought the same thing.  My wife and daughter keep telling me, NO!


Joe:  I drive my kids crazy. I guess you could say I’m a hoarder so I ended up collecting food — especially spices — for recipes, using just a teaspoon or so and just adding the remaining container to my collection. I just don’t take life too seriously. As long as it doesn’t smell rancid or have little green fuzz growing, I’m good. Maybe it’s a guy thing.


Rad-Reader:  What does your family think about your daily writings becoming public?


Joe:  They’re generally supportive. Although they may be the focus of a particular story, they know I  would not publicly embarrass them. I love them bunches.


Rad-Reader:  Do you encourage them to do the same in order to get some peace or clarity during difficult times?


Joe:  I do. My oldest daughter actually set up my blog because I was procrastinating. She currently blogs and is in the process of writing her own book.


Rad-Reader: You have five children, 18 grandchildren, and three great-granddaughters. Do you get to see them much?


Joe: Not nearly enough. I’m actually expecting great-granddaughter #4 in the fall. We try to get together at least once a year, although we’ve missed the past few years. December 2017 was spent with me on the road visiting each of them and their families in New York, Ohio, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Massachusetts, with side stops in Indiana, Florida, and New Jersey to visit with friends and other relatives.

The kids weren’t particularly happy with my decision to retire to Maine so I was instructed to Messenger them every day to let them know I was fine. I guess they thought I couldn’t take care of myself by myself. We stay connected throughout the day with Messenger so we stay pretty close and try to help each other out through any “calamities” of the day … even if it’s a simple “I love you!”


Rad-Reader:  What is your next project and when is it coming out?


Joe:  I’m really excited. In March 2018 I published a novella — Heaven Shining Through — based on a “community” writing project that ended up being a community of one. It was met well, but often with the comment, “It should have been a novel.” So I started writing a novel based on the novella, “My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through.”  It is available at Amazon. The actual release date was June 30, 2019, and a Facebook Live book launch was July 2  and archived on my Facebook author page, @wisdomfromafather


Rad-Reader:  Where can our readers buy your books? Links


Joe:  All three books are available on Amazon is both e-book and paperback versions. Wisdom From a Father is at amazon.com/Wisdom-Father-dads-thoughts-life-ebook/dp/B07KB7JKVM/
