I Am Thoroughly Opposed To The Introduction of 5G Into Sherman, CT Via Happy Acres Farm

For those currently unaware or uninformed about the goings on in Sherman this week, I have sent this letter to the town as of February 27th, 2020:

To: Mr. Don Lowe, First Selectman of the Town of Sherman CT

As well as to whom it may concern in the Sherman town office,

In lieu of appearing at the town meeting this evening since I cannot personally attend, I wish to make my opposition to the introduction of 5G cell towers in the town of Sherman, Connecticut known. I agree with the letter to the editor in the Town Sentinel today by Susan Zeitler, calling for a moratorium on the installation of 5G and support a cease and desist.

The health effects of 5G are still being documented and have been banned in Brussels, the Netherlands, counties in Ireland, the UK, Russia, Switzerland, and many other parts of the world, including districts here in the United States such as Portland, Oregon and others on a growing list. The state of Louisiana in particular has called for a study to be conducted on the specific health effects of the radiation and towers, hopefully a growing trend amongst the states.

I for one do not wish to be a guinea pig for the cell phone companies to test on. As a member of the town with numerous health problems as it is (kidney failure and numerous autoimmune issues), I also worry about those in town with weakened immune systems and those fighting off cancer. Additional radiation at untested levels cannot be good for those with health conditions.

As it is, I am aware of Connecticut’s bill SB 536 which proposed an established statewide plan for building new small cell towers in the public right of way. The bill would supposedly give the public some voice. Verizon opposes this bill. I for one am keeping an eye on the entire state as for how 5G is pressed upon us.

All in all, the safety of 5G has not been assured to the general public. Considering the close placement of the tower to the Sherman School, only a few minutes up the road at Happy Acres Farm, it places our children in the line of the radiation. When given equal radiation doses, the risks for children and adolescents are greater than for adults. Children grow quickly, and their cells are more sensitive to radiation. Since effects of radiation take years to develop, their youth extends the time for any potential effects from radiation to occur.

As a member of the closest residing communities to the existing tower, less than two minutes down my road, I am opposed to the installation of 5G in our town until conclusive health testing has been thoroughly conducted and by an impartial source outside of the cell companies themselves.

If anyone else wishes to voice their opinions on the matter, I would suggest they likewise speak to the town selectman, Mr. Don Lowe, before the board makes a decision with or without the town’s general opinions being expressed.

Happy Valentine’s Day – I Survived Being Suffocated

Happy day, I’m alive! How ’bout that for a catchy article title? Nevertheless, it’s true.

It’s been a rough week all around. I spent the first three days with a virus and laryngitis, then today, I was blessed with yet another gift. Mishka has apparently developed a phobia for the sound of wind on a very blustery day. His solution? Squashing his mummy by sitting on her chest. And I literally mean my chest, while I still haven’t gotten over the cold and can barely breathe. Lucky me.

I managed to snap the photo about fifteen minutes into the squashing session and after having cajoled him into accepting my lap instead of continuing to suffocate me. He contented himself then by giving my Dell computer a tongue bath. The wolfster seems to think he’s still Pomeranian-sized and can safely use me as a human moon bounce machine. NOT.

Either way, I’m all excited because Black Hart is finally out today! Two releases in a matter of a week? Whew! No wonder I gave into a cold. This kind of work tuckers a gal out.

If you’d like to check it out, this the link. Meanwhile, I will marvel over free oxygen with a new appreciation since the elephant, er hem, Mishka is off my chest. Meanwhile, the GIF to the left is somewhat akin to what the experience was like.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Outfoxed and Black Hart are now available for your readership on whatever digital device you prefer. Also make sure to check and see if your library has them via Hoopla Digital.

Truly yours,

Author Maggie Lynn


Outfoxed is finally here! – Australian Bushfire Efforts

Can you feel my excitement? Outfoxed has finally been released!


This story was specially written by me to benefit the animals affected in the Australian Bushfires and is now available on all online major retailers. Proceeds will go to the Australian Zoo Hospital’s efforts to treat and rehabilitate the animals affected by this tragedy. The hospital itself was founded by the Irwin family and continues to this day to help the animals in need.

About the novel:

A beauty, two beasts, an asexual prince, plus an enemy wolf shifter clan intent on abduction. What can possibly go wrong?
Adara Bileby has a secret. Between being hunted mercilessly for her heritage as a red wolf shifter and sneaking through windows at night as a thief, she also has two men who both insist she’s their mate. But when her father trades her off to the magical land of Mynt in exchange for his life after killing one of their sacred peppermint roses, she inherits an enormous problem. Two teensy problems to be precise.

When her ‘mates’ are transformed into two beasts by the sentient roses, she must make an everlasting choice. To save the man she loves, she’ll have to give herself to a monster. If she doesn’t, her love will remain trapped as a beast forever. All the while an unknown enemy lurks in the shadows, intent upon getting her all to himself. Will Adara sacrifice herself for the man she loves? Or will she have been totally outfoxed?

Outfoxed is a new science fantasy retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast story with a comedic species-swapping twist that will warm your heart. Spun into the tale, you’ll encounter wolf shifters, fennec foxes, flying foxes, koalas, a few errant bandicoots and feisty sextet of sentient rosebushes. All in all, it’s one wild ride!

As you can see, the animals of Australia play an important role in the story. In the back of each purchased edition, I’ve included a glossary of all the species mentioned so that the reader can learn more about them. Even if you should choose not to purchase the story as a donation, please share this with all of your reading friends. With each sale, an animal in need gets the help it so wholly deserves.
