Nerd Alert! - October 10, 2011

Sometimes I truly am such a nerd.  I got so excited Saturday to receive a shipment of research books I had placed about a week ago.  The second half of the order should arrive today, which means I have my ears peeled for the distinct hum and murmur of the mail truck driving down our street and pausing at each batch of mailboxes.  Now, who doesn't enjoy receiving a package in the mail, expected or not?  But I have a feeling that not everyone gets so enthusi...

Begin as you intend to go on... - October 7, 2011

So, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about the more public aspects of my writing career—the social networking sites - Facebook and Twitter, the design of my website, my blog—all the things that will connect me to my readers on a day-to-day basis. And I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s best to begin as I intend to go on. This means that even though my number of followers and friends is still relatively low, and largely comprised of actual friends...

What I'm Reading Now: The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley - October 3, 2011

The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley  I've been waiting months for Kearsley's newest to release in the US.  I preordered the ebook, and when Saturday (release day) rolled around, I turned on my Kindle first thing and downloaded it.  I'm about half way through, and, of course, loving it.  Kearsley is a gifted writer--someone with the rare gift to make the impossible truly seem possible.  I'm not certain this novel will be my favorite by her (a slot currentl...

What I'm Reading Now: Haunted Ground by Erin Hart - September 26, 2011

Haunted Ground by Erin Hart Haunted Ground is the first book I have read by Erin Hart, but it certainly won't be the last.  The Irish location, the authentic small-village feel, the multi-layered mysteries, and the cast of credible suspects all kept me hooked until the very end. Two farmers cutting turf in the west of Ireland make a grisly discovery—the perfectly preserved severed head of a beautiful young woman with long red hair. Called out to the bog to investigate, Irish archeol... Click Here To Read More >>



A few more Confessions - September 22, 2011

Sometimes… ...I use my cat as my own personal pillow-pet. Even though she hates it. And only suffers through it for about 30 seconds. I still try to trap her and cuddle her. But as everyone knows, cats don’t like to be restrained. They want an escape route.    ...I don’t return items to their proper location in the store after I decide I don’t want them. It’s just so much easier to ditch them on a convenient shelf then to ...

Fall TV - September 19, 2011

It’s that time of year again—the week when the fall season of TV shows debuts. Finally. I’m not exactly an avid television watcher, but even I was getting sick of all the reruns. I’ve also been looking forward to checking out some of the new shows that the networks seem to have been hyping since January. But, unfortunately, although this week will be crammed with TV watching, by next week most of the new shows will have fallen by the wayside, failing t...

Updates - Sep 2011 - September 19, 2011

So happy autumn is almost officially here. It’s my favorite season, and I’ve already been enjoying the cooler temperatures and the lovely scents that seem to carry on the breeze. I’ve broken out the jeans, jackets, and boots, and scrounged through the closets for my fall-themed decor. Now I’m looking forward to the leaves changing and the autumn fare—like pumpkin bread and apple crisp.  On to the updates: I’ve made some changes to the...

Confession: I don't like to cook. - September 11, 2011

I don’t like to cook. I can cook, or rather follow a recipe, but I don’t like to. There are several reasons for this. For one, I gag at the sight of raw meat. I know, it’s pitiful, but I am one of those people who prefer to pretend their main course didn’t actually come from a chicken or a cow or a pig, that it just somehow magically appeared as is. Handling it raw sort of shatters this illusion. Particularly if I’m forced to dig my hands i...

What I'm Reading Now: Faro's Daughter & Venetia by Georgette Heyer - September 11, 2011

Faro's Daughter by Georgette Heyer - and - Venetia by Georgette Heyer I'm on a bit of a Georgette Heyer reading kick.  There's simply no author who writes Regencies better.  When I need to immerse myself in the language and mores of that time period, I turn to Heyer, and thoroughly enjoy myself.   Beautiful Deborah Grantham, mistress of her aunt's elegant gaming house, must find a way to restore herself and her aunt to respectability, preferably without acce...

What I'm Reading Now: A Rather Remarkable Homecoming by C.A. Belmond - September 8, 2011

A Rather Remarkable Homecoming by C.A. Belmond I am a big fan of C.A. Belmond's "Rather" series.  They are light and fun, and she always transports her readers to the most interesting destinations.  This fourth entry in the series is no exception.  The book certainly stands on its own, but for anyone new to the series I would still recommend beginning with Book 1, A Rather Lovely Inheritance, or you'll miss out on all the enjoyment of watching Penny ...
