About Me


I’m super excited to restart my blog after so many years. It’s been a while I’ve wanted to do this but after my first blog got hacked (had it for over 13 years) I  hesitated.

So let’s see. I’m a 61-year young mommy of five, and new grandmother. Yeah! A little boy…so excited. And now come March 2019, another little grandson will be arriving.

Hubby and I have been married for 41 years this past August. He was my high school sweetie and still is my sweetie after all these years.

We’re dog lovers, the entire family. I’m a grandmom to many fur-babies. Love them dearly. Cry like a baby when they leave us. No one understands the hurt when they pass away unless you love animals the way we do.

Purpose of this Blog

As a new writer when I began way back in the dinosaur ages, I, too, made a ton of mistakes while building my brand.

The whole purpose of this site is to begin anew, to show writers that even after all these years, there’s always room to improve and learn from our ‘trials and errors’, to not be afraid to start all over again…as they say, it’s never too late to jump back into the game with a fresh perspective and wants and needs.

If you haven’t guessed yet, my name is Lea Schizas, founder of The Muse Online Writers Conference, and MuseItUp Publishing…and I have no shame to say after all these years, I’m feeling like a million bucks beginning my branding all over again…the right way!

Thank you for visiting. Bookmark and come back often because I have tons in store for you.

But wait, before you leave, I’d also like to mention that I have been a loyal Avon customer and now finally an Avon rep.  So excited. Plus, my families lives (all of my children) have turned to natural products, healthier eating habits, and a love for essential oils. Naturally I joined Young Living since I absolutely love to diffuse my essential oils.

So hang on, the Writing Jungle ride is about to begin!
