Top Ten Lessons Learned While Fostering Puppies

Newest Release!

Turns out that while I was lost editing someone else’s lovely book, the second book in my Watcher series, When No One’s Watching, was released! I had a little trouble finding it in both formats at first. (Those who know me well, know technology–of essentially any kind–and I haven’t exactly become BFFs yet.) Although I’m sure most […]

Instant Puppies, Just Add Water

Turns out I’ve become an instant puppy mom (and, yes, they do need water). Food, too. Plus, lots and lots of newspaper for potty time. I volunteer at a wonderful animal rescue, where dogs and donkeys, peacocks and pigs, egg-layers and an emu named Simon all live on a lovely little farm with a spectacular […]

Peace.

I’ve come out of hiding because my characters have gone into hiding. 🙂 Not really. Well, maybe … but they’ll come back. They promised. The real reason I stopped by was to speak about that big *thing* we have coming up tomorrow. Yes, love it or hate it, election day is on the horizon. I’d be […]

Gone Writin’

Hi there! If you stop by and find no one home, it must be November. That means it’s NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month)! I’m doing NANO-lite this year with a friend, so we’ll be shooting for 25,000 words (rather than the usual 50k) toward our next novels. I won’t be blogging much (if at all), […]

Embracing Our Inner Witchiness

Have you checked the date lately? Seems like as good a time as any to show our inner witchiness some love. Sound sketchy? Hear me out…pretty please? I’m not talking about anything dark.

(Please Don’t) Burn the Witch!

I joke about my cat being my “familiar,” because she’s usually sprawled across me or curled up by my side, but I’m no witch. This doesn’t stop me from suspecting that, had I been alive during the ages of witch hysteria, I would have been walking around with heart palpitations and some seriously sweaty palms. […]
