About Momma

Currently,  is busy homeschooling for her autistic little ones, coaching clients to personal and business success and publishing the best books by authors who deserve a chance. She is seen here with grandson Caden.

Ann Marie and Caden

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Red spent too many years managing retail stores across America in some of the world’s toughest markets.  The focus of her jobs was turning troubled stores back toward profit and personnel balance through quality control.

Retail followed an extended trip through the legal system as a degreed paralegal.  Louisiana is the only American state under Napoleonic law.  She knows the difference.  Her experience in family law and criminal law brought her to the Southern District appellate courts in cases involving child paternity and the death penalty.

Growing up in a family business of earth moving, Red learned the principles of good business practice, ethics and finance long before her first degree: Accounting.  Knowing how to drive a bulldozer is just a plus.

In the meantime, Red has found time to be a parent.  Red is Momma to ten children and on the road to fifteen.  She is also Momma Bear to many adults.  She answers questions about child rearing and discipline readily.

Let's go!

Kershaw, South Carolina

Special needs children strike close to home for Red.  Three children are on the autism spectrum; one suffers hypothyroidism and had HGH therapy; one has had a kidney transplant and the youngest died of an intercranial bleed and other complications of severe prematurity.

Throughout everything, Red has been a writer and editor.  From ghost writing for newspapers; dabbling in poetry; editing fiction and educational novels; drafting and proofing legal documents; writing articles for magazines, corporations, newspapers and the Web; citizen journalism for the Web; writing her books Taming the Terrible Twos: A Parents’ Survival Guide; and Mantra for a Muse; to her most recent projects writing a new book of poetry, an erotic sequel, a how-to book and a thriller novel, Red has written millions of words. Check the green word meter in the right side bar for how many are housed on The M3 Blog. Overall, it is an interesting tale.  Read it in her own words in Helium writer autobiographies. Check out her identity awareness at My Answer.

Three new books were debuted in the Redmund Productions‘ launch: Killing Us Softly, Darkness Introduced and Flash in the Pan.

Killing Us Softly: Becoming the Surviving Spouse of Cancer is an intimate look into the endgame of cancer. Not your typical grief book, KUS bares the emotional, spiritual and physical evolution which occurs when caring for someone who is dying before you.

Darkness Introduced is an erotic novel taking place in the American BDSM world. DI looks into the comparison of the newly initiated and the life timers. The first in a series currently planned of five books, DI’s reviews put it firmly in the hot category, even considering the subject matter is far from kind.

Mantra’s Book of Shadows offers a look into the darker poetic side of the fairy muse. Straightforward, thought-provoking and sometimes twisted poetry speaks to the darker side of human nature and passionate truths of attributes lurking in the shadows. Revenge, loss, grief, and bone chilling portrayals of scenes with vivid images and metaphors draw you into the vortex of the shadow side of human emotion with Red Dwyer as your midnight guide. Dare to face the abyss.

Flash in the Pan is a flash fiction anthology featuring 13 authors who took The M3 Blog’s challenge to create flash fiction. Great stories in 150 words or less. Best of all? Download this edition for free! Get to know some of RedmundPro’s authors one minute at a time.

  2. I have just noticed that you have subscribed to me my friend, and that is why I have called by to take a journey through your world of blogging, I hope that when you call by my Space again that you will offer me a comment on something, I have some scripts that are rather varied these days and some extra pages, some photographs and a few with graphics upon them.

    I also have two guestbooks so that anyone that wishes to call by and not read my Horror stories or poems can still add something inside My Gothic Realm if they wish to do so. I do hope that you will find something to your liking my friend and when I return here again I will take the journey that I mentioned earlier.

    Be very well my friend and do keep up the very good work that you are doing with those special needs children as that is indeed time worth spent.

    • Thank you for your visit, Androgoth. I took a leisurely stroll and found much to my liking. Time constraints kept me from staying longer. I shall be back to crawl the realm again soon, and comments you shall have. I am interested in the poetry as well. Be well and naughty.
      Red.

  6. I’m so glad I found you tonight – you may be very, very helpful to me as we wrap up 2011 and look ahead to 2012.

    I admire how you write and also your respect for children. I have ONLY four of my own – two are twins. I ran myself ragged for the past 5 years working full-time in a very, very demanding job and essentially I hit the wall. I blog now because I am depressed and going through some massive life transitions. My site is dedicated to working mothers – I eventually want to pull products and services into the fold to make the lives of working mothers easier. http://www.mamainmotion.com.

    I love my children so much it takes my breath away. I feel like I am a person who matters because of them.

    I look forward to getting to know you!!

    • I am so very glad you made it to my little corner of the blogosphere, Jen. I do so adore your poems. Stop by the Green Room and do leave a link. There are many poets who frequent here who would very much enjoy your Gothic take on the world.

      Thank you for your well wishes. And I wish you were feeling better sooner than later! Snuggle up with the new pup…she is such a doll!

    I am sitting here with my eyes wide open as my mouth… :O
    What an amazing lady you are! I worked in a Developemental Disabilty Facility before with Autistic children in the
    “Green Room” 4 hours a day! That was some of the most overwhelming work I have done! You are strong and bless you :D

    • Glad you could make it! Drop a link to your blog in the Green Room here, just a tad different. Pull up a rocker and grab a cuppa. Hope you find something you like. And, just so you know, I just am the Momma. All the rest is just fluff ;)

  10. Yes well I left all the more daring outfits intact, besides I couldn’t
    get anyone to model them for me being that they were so skimpy :)
    Yes I am kidding you, well maybe I am? :) Right be careful on those
    new spikes of yours as they can be rather dangerous you know? :)

    Have a wicked rest of evening and
    yes another vacation sounds great :)

    had to drop this reply in here as the new format on our crazy WordPress won’t even let me add a comment on my own Space even when I am signed in… It wants me to sign in again, this will stop a lot of peeps commenting I think? :( How Nuts of them to add this feature…

    • Perhaps, that is what became of the large comment I left for EG about NOLA, Mardi Gras and football last night. Must have been their upgrade time. Thus far, I am not seeing an issue with the three blogs I have here, but it is affecting my commenters…most of them have had to adopt new aliens :(

      I wondered if perhaps Jen was holding an eight course meal this evening and that was delaying your responses to your fine script this evening. ;) And I only delete the egregious ones ;)
