Do you have leftover prescription drugs hanging around your medicine cabinet, lonely and unused?
DON'T flush them down your toilet, give them to your friends or family, or bury them in the backyard. Prescription drugs can be toxic and can leach into your groundwater. Also, it is ILLEGAL to share prescribed medications with other people. Most individuals who abuse prescription medications obtain them from friends and family--NOT corrupt internet sites or shady characters dealing on the corner. Unused medications are a target of visitors, real estate agents, and workers who come into your home looking to divert for profit or for personal use.

By day, I'm an uptight and proper academic - you know, a publish or perish type who resides in tall towers with the likes of Rapunzul. In the evening, I morph into a lovable mom and wife, play with my children, hang with the hubby.
But when darkness falls and the house stills, I write.
