I used to love holidays. Easter eggs, Halloween costumes, even flag day was fun. But since my kids have left home (Yippee, empty nesting!), I can’t be bothered to notice the passing of days. Well, that’s not exactly true. I count days by words written and deadlines missed or (fingers […]

The #HoldOntoTheLight campaign has asked authors to share openly about depression and since I’ve struggled with it all my life, I was asked to participate. The good news is that I’m so much better than I was before. In fact, every day is a joyous smile of yes, yes, yes! And yes, I’m lying. The […]
I’m just back from DragonCon in Atlanta. Lots of pictures of the fun below. Guess what that has to with bears? Grizzly bears attacked Atlanta, wiped out all cos players and ate all the sushi. THE BEAR WHO LOVED ME released. Everyone read it and nominated me for President. […]
The world has lots of exciting and scary things going on right now. I’ve been watching the news and trying to balance normal life sanity with keeping up with what’s going on outside my door. And in the middle of that, I realized I’ve got four books coming out this fall. Yes, FOUR! The first is […]
Ever wondered how I think? Here’s a glimpse into the way my brain churns out stories. I’ve always loved the smart hero over the alpha hero. Certainly alphas must be smart, but I’ll pick the witty scientist over that he-man Special Forces guy. If you’ve ever watched Stargate, I much preferred Daniel Jackson to Colonel […]
I had a fabulous time at Barbara Vey’s reader appreciation luncheon. First off, I did the welcome speech that included a # phrase. Guess what I wrote! #GiveMeBooks #Cupcakes&Grizzlies #IwasVeyed #HistoricalRomanceIsTheNewBlack Answer: 3. #IwasVeyed Barbara Vey loves readers. It is her mission in life to get great books into readers’ hands. And this event did just that. […]
Here are some pix that give you a taste of the fun we had at Barbara Vey’s Reader Appreciation Event.
What a great event! I go every year, but somehow she manages to get better and better each time. So last year, I swore I’d make my table prettier than last time. Guess what I added? Tissue paper. Lots and lots of tissue paper. Who cares if it’s artistic? Gold nuggets are always stylish. I buried my table […]
I’m going to be travelling a bunch in the next four weeks. This past weekend I visited my daughters in Ann Arbor. Aren’t they lovely? Very mature and professional looking. I think they take after their mother. Next comes Barbara Vey’s event which will be over by the time this blog goes live. Watch for […]
I was recently impulsive. (Cue: shocked gasp. Wait, was no one surprised?) I agreed to do a spring cleaning. It’s pretty simple and I’ve done it before. You remove 27 items from your home a day for 9 days. Why 27? There was some elaborate numerology thing, but my last experience told me that 27 […]
