I recently returned from the Novelists, Inc. conference and now I’m even more fired up about getting my website in shape (as you may have noticed, I’m currently migrating a lot of info, so there are gaps, unfinished pages, etc. etc. Sorry ’bout that, but it’ll all be pretty–and informative!–soon). One of the things that […]
Halloween: memories, a cookie recipe, and a black cat treat (yes! an ebook sale!)
Halloween is my favorite holiday, and has been for about as long as I can remember. I like the spooky mixed with the mundane of suburbia. I like the idea of ghosts and ghouls coming out for just that one night to walk among us. And, yeah, I like the idea of candy. Hey, I’m […]
New York Lust
I love New York City, but after spending the last few days there I have to say that it’s good I don’t live there. I would get NO work done! Honestly, there’s so much to do, so much to soak up! It’s a creative bolus…but how can I stop looking and start writing?? I think […]
Awesome bookclub pick: Graceling!
I’m in a neighborhood bookclub, and tonight we’re hosting at my house. The book was one I admit I hadn’t heard of, though I believe it got a lot of advance buzz (yes, I do sometimes move into my cave and roll the boulder in front of the door!). It’s Graceling, by Kristin Cashore, and […]

Let's talk proposals … marriage proposals, that is!
Considering there are 23 million hits, I may be the last one to the party, but this made me tear up! I love You Tube. I mean, I was looking for a video of Fred Astaire and ended up here! Years ago, I helped a friend splice his wedding proposal into Casablanca (Mike, are you […]
A 50 Shades Musical? How can I not love this?
It’s amazing what you run across on You Tube. I thought this was a real hoot!
Dorothy L. Sayers, Claire Bloom, Harry Potter, an overloaded DVR and Knob Creek bourbon…
Check out the latest post at Reading Agatha Christie. Turns out my husband has a secret crush! How did I not know this! Remember when Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone became Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone because Americans, presumably, could relate to the word “sorcerer” more than the word “philosopher”? American fundamentalists would […]
