About Momma

Currently, Red Dwyer is busy writing her opus, coaching clients to personal and business success and trying to find time to spend with her grandsons.

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 thirteen children.  She is also Momma Bear to many adults.  She answers questions about child rearing and discipline readily.

Special needs children strike close to home for Red.  Three children are on the autism spectrum; two who are bipolar; two suffer with hypothyroidism; one 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. More than 1,000,000 are here on The M3 Blog. Overall, it is an interesting tale.  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.

After all the opening day frenzy, Red found her way into more book pages.

Flash in the Pan: Frosty, Fiery, Fresh and Feisty Flash Fiction is the second of the FTP productions with 127 shorts from a dozen authors. All the FTP books are available in Kindle, ereader and PDF alongside paperback.

Wave of Emotion, the third installment of the Flash in the Pan series takes you on a roller coaster of emotion which defies you basic happy and sad.

Flashes from the Bistro is 250 flashes from 26 authors. Satisfy your appetite for flash!

Finding the Path is another monster anthology of flash fiction from around the world. Find your path to entertainment with 250 flashes and some of the shortest Hot Flashes to date.

Writing from the great state of Texas, Red is closing in on the next million words.

  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.

  5. Thank you very much for the follow big Momma. I am also a big Momma of 4 kids hahahaha, I know you have 10. Anyways nice meeting you and I am so happy that I found your page I know I will learn so much from you.

    Have a great day!

  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!!
