Retreating to the Beach!

| October 31, 2011

I’m writing at the beach. I got here after dark last night, and they warn you that lights on decks disturb the nesting sea turtles, etc., so I couldn’t see the ocean, but the waves were a song of welcome! This morning when I woke, this was the sunrise.  Over there–to the right. Amazing? Yes, […]

Random Friday

| October 28, 2011

I’m busy packing for this year’s writing retreat, so today’s a random post. I checked in on that lovely orange tree. By the time I get back from the retreat, it’ll probably be bare. We’re due for rain in the next few days here. That usually washes the leaves right out of the trees. Yesterday, […]

Temporary Father

| October 27, 2011

A few years ago I wrote a book called Temporary Father. At the time, Superromances were not published in ebook format, but this one has just been released. I loved this story. A driven magnate, who was a fish out of water, recovering from a minor heart attack in the small town of Honesty, VA. […]

Manic Wednesday!

| October 26, 2011

I’m on the verge of abandoning hearth and abode for a writer’s retreat at the beach. I always miss my family when I do this, but the focused writing time is priceless! I’ve been planning my next book so all I have to do after I arrive is write like a madwoman. I have character […]

Thinking about the relationship between story, writing, and actors in a movie today. I saw Camelot, when I was young. I read The Once and Future King even before that, and didn’t realize Camelot was based on it until I stumbled across the movie. I’m not a big fan of musicals. I mean, how many times […]

RIP VI The Diva Haunts the House

| October 24, 2011

As part of my R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI commitment, I’ve finally finished one of my books, The Diva Haunts the House, by Krista Davis. I love Krista Davis’s Domestic Diva series, which started with The Diva Runs Out of Thyme. There’s a sensible diva and a crazed perfectionist diva, and the heroine is the sensible […]

Random Once More

| October 20, 2011

Time for another random post. I love them best because I only have to transfer stuff from my head to the blog. Haven’t seen a lot of the beloved lately between my travel schedule and his so I’ve tried to hang out with him a bit more. Today, we took a road trip. I love […]

The Traveling Wall

| October 19, 2011

Last weekend my daughter and I went home for a family reunion. We had so much fun I didn’t take photos. I’m sorry about that because the trees are showing amazing colors. The only bad thing about going home is the leaving. I love my beloved family so much, and I love seeing my girl […]

How do I love thee…

| October 13, 2011

Autumn, I mean, and this is why! Fuzzy jammys and socks! So comforting to wear, so cozy! The temps are supposed to climb tomorrow, so I’m guessing this is a one-day fuzzy-clothing extravaganza, but I’m wallowing while it lasts! It strikes me most romance writers post lovely photos of shoes and such. I love handbags […]
