Checking In to Check Out

So sorry for the lack of posts this summer! If you follow me on Twitter, (and why aren’t you? I’m a hoot!) then you know I’ve been sick, so I wasn’t posting much. But I’m back! Only to tell you that I won’t be posting any more this week, but I promise to bring you [...]

My Filter

You guys may remember my hesitation to join Facebook. And then Twitter. Well one of my concerns that I mentioned is my big ‘ole mouth. I talk. A lot. I’m not a gossip, but I am one of those people who will talk to just about anyone. If I’m in a room full of people, [...]

What Am I Waiting For?

So I talked about this on Facebook a few days ago, the fact that I save things for special occasions. For example, about a year ago, I bought new silk throw pillows for my sofas. I could only imagine my daughter’s sticky hands getting on them, or the marker stain that my daughter would whine [...]


Boy, you have to wear a few different hats with being a writer. For those of you who aspire to do this, let me tell you—it’s a lot of work! Tremendous! Promoting a book and revising another—did I mention how hard it is? I did? Well alrighty then… I love the creative side of [...]

If You Don’t Remember…

Sick! So sick right now! My daughter had the worst cold/flu bug, and of course the caretaker picked it right up. So the revision process has been halted a bit due to 102 degree fevers and chills. When my fever breaks—as it does about once or twice a day—I get a few things done. Hence, [...]

Should I Give a Tweet?

The Playground

 Not doing the whole word-count thing anymore. Remember quality over quantity. Had fun writing delicious dinner table scene. It’s the scene you see in movies sometimes. I call it the-Luke-I-am-your-father-wine-in-the-face-girl-I-know-you-didn’t-scene. Not saying mine will be that good, but I sure had fun writing it!                                                                                                                      


Do you remember the feeling of being at [...]

Last Train to Facebook…

When your 72 year old friend invites you to join Facebook, you know it’s time. I’ve been fighting all the social media outlets for what feels like years, saying to myself, “It’s a complete waste time.” Or, “I can’t join, I’ll get addicted.”

I ignored the preaching from some of my friends, pleading for me [...]
