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 […]

A werewolf walks into a bar…and wins a free book!

Come join me at Romp v. Stomp over at The Book Nympho’s site! I’m going head-to-head with Amanda Carlson, who’s taking the “stomp” end of the equation. Yeah, I’m the “romp” gal! Here’s a teaser from my entry (an original short read set in the Shadow Keepers world). A werewolf walks into a bar… Rachel […]

Need a Vampire Diaries Fix?

Sometimes, you just need a fix. And rather than watch a re-run, have some fun! check out these bloopers from Seasons 1 and 2 I found on YouTube!

Facebook, I *almost* love you

Those who’ve followed me across cyberspace for awhile know that I’ve had a love/hate relationship going with Facebook. I love how it allows you to connect with people, especially with readers! Getting snail mail is awesome, but nothing beats quick connections. But I’ve had my issues. The 5000 friend limit is just a pain. The […]

Dancing in Fairy Dust

I had a realization this morning: what if all the dust in my house is fairy dust? Do I really want to injure a fairy? Deprive it of it’s livelihood? Piss it off? (I’ve read several evil fairy books!) No, I do not. Therefore, I’ve decided to not dust anymore. Just doing my part for […]


Tonight is Bunco night. I’m so excited! To be honest, I didn’t even know what Bunco was until I saw it on an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Based on that episode, my understanding is that the game involves drinking, gossiping and name calling (this should get interesting!). Oh, and there are dice […]

The Kate Connor Demon Slaying Song!

Thanks to Steven Brandt for most of these lyrics and the inspiration. Guess I can’t whine about not being George R.R. anymore, huh. (hahahaha). And thanks to my daughter Catherine for performing the vocals! (no thanks to Photo Booth, because the sound isn’t synced, but what the heck). Anyway, this amused me! The lyrics, if […]


I had intended to blog today about Apple’s Mountain Lion — the stuff I like so far and the stuff I don’t. And then I went over to Julia London‘s house last night and watched some of the Olympics. And then I saw this amazing photo of Gabby Douglas, and I just had to change […]

I wanna be like George R.R. Martin

I have a new life goal.  I wanna be like George R.R. Martin.  Not because A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) was fricking awesome, but because I don’t want to just write books anymore.  No, that is no longer enough for me. Now I want folks to make up […]
