I decided to make up a new word. Why? Well…why not? I’m a crazy author, we do shit like that. I’ve written before on how my books tend to be mash-ups, which I’ve defined as a combination of romance with…take your pick: mystery, intrigue, action, sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian, paranormal. You name it and I’ve combined… Read More A Squeries…
I’ve been binge watching CNN and this whole concept of “loyalty” got me to thinking about a number of things and some of those are actually related to writing (in a round about way). First, let me say that I believe loyalty is a good thing. I was recently asked to come up with a… Read More Loyalty
Warning: This blog may contain sarcasm, oh and profanity…don’t read it if you are easily offended. Everyone knows I often add to the debate in the various Facebook groups and find the discussions fascinating. This past week there was a lively examination of profanity in lesfic. Rather than regurgitate the various perspectives in this blog,… Read More Sanitizing Lesfic
I often get sidetracked by the threads in the various Facebook groups I belong to (yeah I know big surprise to no-one). I peruse the sites usually after reaching my daily writing goal (okay maybe sometimes I sneak on Facebook in the middle of writing). This past week I came upon a thread that was… Read More Let’s Talk About Sex Baby….
Today I was summoned to go to our local Worksource center to orient and learn tricks and tips for obtaining a job. I realized as I was getting ready this morning that this is the first time in 42 years I’ve been unemployed. It was a sobering thought. As I drove to the center, I… Read More Shame…A Cousin of Humiliation
Every year since I’ve been blogging, the Friday before Mother’s Day, I write about my mother who passed away over five years ago (coming up on 6 in July). There are so many lessons my mother taught me and today I’m going to talk about one particularly important one. When I was nine years old,… Read More Important Lessons From Mom
I’ve been joking lately about becoming a domestic goddess while I wait for my next job opportunity to appear, so I thought I’d write about that today. Since I love google research, yup, guess what I did. I googled it. You know what? There is an actual definition. From the urban dictionary, a domestic goddess… Read More The Domestic Goddess
It’s funny how we are creatures of habit. I used to get up every morning at about 5:00. I’d stumble into the second bedroom of the condo, the one we turned into a work-out room, and jump on the bike while I was still half asleep and do my 60-minute workout. A quick shower and… Read More New Routines
I wrote this blog two weeks ago, before the biggest whopper of a joke hit my life, except it wasn’t a joke, so I decided I should resurrect this blog and post it now because as I always say, better late than never (especially when I’m too lazy to write something new).For people who know… Read More Was that a joke?
After Lonestar, I hit the ground running. Work was crazy and I didn’t give it another thought as I delved into the many balls that were flying around in the air. I’d been joking that those balls were bouncing on the ground and smacking me in the head. Like my character, Codee, in The Termination,… Read More Oh no you didn’t…Oh yes, I did…Lonestar Recap
