I am in a mad dash currently. I am speaking at two writers conferences in the next two weeks, so I am up to my neck in preparing workshops, figuring out how to present them online, and learning all the bells and whistles of Zoom.
As. We. All. Are.
So I shall just get the “things” going.
~ One ~
First, let me apologize for repeating myself last week. I knew it was going to happen eventually. And it finally did.
One of last week’s Things was a repeat from an earlier week.
Now I am not going to point … Read more »
As I look out the window at nothing but smoke, my heart goes out to everyone affected by the wildfires on the West Coast. Prayers going out for rain and relief.
That, and four day weeks throw me. What? It’s Friday already? Hence, this is a little late this morning.
So let’s get going with something to lighten our hearts.
A few weeks ago, I told you I was diving into A Queen in Hiding by Sarah Kozloff. Since then, I’ve read all four books in the series. I have been binge reading. Leave me alone reading. Staying up … Read more »
Here we go again! Another week and another Friday. And I am in a whirlwind.
I start off on a big adventure tomorrow–I’m helping my college son move back to Chicago. We will be driving from Seattle to Chicago, via Butte, Montana, Casper, Wyoming, and Lincoln, Nebraska, before we roll into Chicago.
You can follow along on our bubble adventures across the west and into the great midwest on my Facebook and my Instagram accounts. Wave at us if we are motoring through your neck of the woods.
And don’t worry, we have face masks and Clorox wipes I recently … Read more »
It’s Friday! Hurrah. We made it through another week. I hope your days have been bright and you have a weekend ahead full of things that make you smile.
Here are five things that have me grinning.
Mark your calendars: The Australian Romance Readers are putting on a virtual reader’s conference, A Romantic Rendezvous: Locked Down, August 1-2. So if you’ve ever wanted to go to a reader’s conference or go to Australia, here’s your chance–all from the comfort of your own home.
Take a look at the schedule, but just know I am not going to … Read more »

I asked my Facebook page folks if they had any questions for me, and they came through with a bunch of them! So I thought I would answer them over here as well, since not everyone follows me everywhere. (But if you want to, please visit me on FB, Twitter, Instagram…. LOL)
But anyway, the first question really hit me.
Yes, yes, and absolutely yes, I am writing.
I’ve been hard at work on a historical fiction set in a small town in Wyoming. It has all the elements you will love–great friends, a few wacky characters, … Read more »
I have been on a total fantasy reading kick. Maybe it’s in anticipation of the return of Game of Thrones. But one thing is for sure: I read one and then I dive into a whole series. Come along with me…
So when the Nebula Awards were announced a few weeks ago, I realized I’d only read one of them (The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal–which BTW so belongs on this list), so I ordered up Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik (since I’m a fan of hers already, having loved and adored Uprooted) and also Trail of … Read more »
I always smile when I see this date. You see, April 1st has a different meaning for me–not the day of pranks and foolery, but the day I began my publishing career.
Not the day I sold, but the day I turned in the manuscript of Brazen Angel for the Dell Diamond Debut contest. To me, April 1st is the day it all began.
Now there is a HUGE story behind my first book, and you can find it here. Go read it, then come back. I’ll wait.
And this year, I wanted to remember it all over again. … Read more »
I got the privilege of reading an advanced copy of Kate Quinn’s exquisite new historical fiction, The Huntress. You might recall, I raved about her previous book, The Alice Network in a December post about incredible books to give as gifts.
Now I get to rave about The Huntress.
The story revolves around a pair (soon to be trio) of Nazi hunters chasing after a murderess who has disappeared into the ether after committing heinous crimes in the waning days of WWII. The trio of stories weave together a thrilling and poignant story of war, loss, and finding … Read more »
