RT Vegas Top Ten


Fun Stuff, List

In what is now a tradition, here are my top ten moments from this year’s RT Convention! Meeting up with friends from last year and making new friends.

Now You Can’t Stop Thinking About It


Fun Stuff

Happy Halloween! Courtesy of my friend, I have this tidbit for you – How can a vampire get a boner when they don’t have any blood flow? I’m not talking Buffy vamps here – they bleed still. But what about vamps who’s veins freeze when they die? (We all know what I’m talking about, right?) […]

Books, A Love Affair

I’m having a love affair with books. What we have is precious, a once in a lifetime romance. I always have more than one book going at a time in order to keep a well-rounded, healthy reading life. (P.S. my mother says that if I spend as much time and energy on exercising as I […]

The Art of Adulting


Fun Stuff

I have been working on the art of being an adult. What does being an adult even mean? To me it means autonomy, taking responsibility, and paying a lot of bills. In some ways I’m doing a fine job of adulting. I pay my bills (mostly on time), make my own decisions (after much consultation), […]

Summer?


Fun Stuff

The calendar may say July but I still hear people talking about what they’ll do when summer starts. Probably because it’s cold. The air’s cold, the bay’s cold, and I’ve only worn shorts once. Yet we carry on with our summer adventures because we’re northern  Michiganders! It’s what we do. Photos – beach sunset, pet […]

Early Posts, Fun Stuff

This week I’m writing from the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Dallas, TX. I love conferences. They are full of creative, introverted, weird, wild writers seeking support, inspiration, and new knowledge of their craft. Upon my return, I fully intend to write a top 10 list of my favorite moments this week. In the meantime, […]
