Five Things about Laura Lee Guhrke

Why is it that lately I can’t get any of my friends to stick to Five Things. It’s called “Five Things” for a reason. But much to my chagrin, they all are a bunch of overachievers–sending in 6, 9, or even 11 things. And considering I only send them 10 questions to answer, it gets a little confusing sometimes.

I think this week’s Five Things Author fits into the overachiever category. Or she can’t count. Either way, I love her to death and am always thrilled when she has a book out. Which she does. Which I will tell you … Read more »

Five Things about Lecia Cornwall

Here she is, the indomitable and always interesting, Lecia Cornwall:

1. Where is the most beautiful/romantic place you’ve ever been? The most beautiful, romantic place I’ve ever been: Malmaison, Empress Josephine’s home outside Paris. There were no tourists the day we were there, just us, walking through her empty rooms, standing in the bedroom where she died. They say Napoleon visited Malmaison for relaxation while he was Emperor, but couldn’t bear to go there after Josephine’s death. It has such a sad, romantic atmosphere of love and regret.

2. Do you celebrate when you finish a book and what you Read more »

Five Things about Debra Mullins

Debra Mullins is another of my Avon Author sisters. Someone I have known for as long as I’ve been writing at Avon. Let’s not count the years . . . really, let’s not. LOL. But I always love the chance to see Debra and find out what she’s been up to.

What I truly envy about Debra is her work ethic which has her doing both writing full time and working full time. She is one dedicated writer. And apparently one who was willing to fall on the Five Things sword!

So here are Five Things About Debra Mullins:

Quick & Easy Holiday Gifts

I love crafting or making holiday gifts–especially all those small gifts you have to take to parties or because all of a sudden you remember you forgot a gift for someone. I think something you have made or put together yourself just means a little more than a bottle of wine you snagged on the way to a holiday party.

So here is something I am doing this year: Homemade Seasonings.

I got empty spice jars at a local wrap and container store, and then I mixed several large bathes of my favorite Taco Seasoning and a favorite Steak/Chicken Rub, … Read more »

Five Things about Candis Terry

I met Candis Terry years ago in rather an odd fashion–I was leaving a conference and she and some other friends of mine were on their way to the airport. Since I live near the airport, I offered them all a ride to save the taxi fees. Filled my minivan with old friends and new and tons of luggage and off we went. So you could say I was her driver before she was “Candis Terry.” Teehee. So without further ado, Five Things About Candis Terry:

1. Did you have a nickname growing up?
Yes, unfortunately it was Mouse. I … Read more »

Five Things about Margo Maguire

Margo and I have been Avon Authors together for ages! It’s sort of a sisterhood of friends and chatty buddies and it affords one the chance to meet some great authors and call them friends. Margo is dropping by Five Things this week because that’s what the Avon ladies do for each other–show up, pitch in, help out. So welcome, Margo Maguire!

1. Do you celebrate when you finish a book and what you do?
I read. It’s something I LOVE to do but don’t have enough time while I’m in the midst of writing a book. So when I … Read more »
