Comfort Reads

“I’d like for the young people, and older ones, too, who don’t count themselves as readers, to know the joy of reading and what it does to enrich your life in so many ways.” – Katherine Paterson
I’ve been going through my list of books read this year and noticed and interesting fact: I’ve been doing a lot of comfort reading of late.

Catching Up With Myself

I’ve been procrastinating wildly the last few months. A lot of it has to do with other things going on: a crazy job, crazy home life, the world — crazy in general. Things seem to be settling down for the moment, though I have a feeling that’s the Gods of Comedy just lulling me into a false sense of security before the round of “hilarity ensues.”

Welcome 2016

“An old day passes, a new day arrives.” — The Dalai Lama

Happy New Year wishes to everyone who reads this. May the year ahead be joyous and filled with success. May you be surrounded by those you love and warmed by the memories of those who have gone before.

May you be challenged and grow, but may your load never be more than you can bear. May there be hands held out to help you when you need it most.

May this be a year of adventure, of big, scary things that thrill and delight us — and at day’s end, may we find comfort and warmth.

It’s a new day. Onward.

Tuesday Tease: To Lure a Lord

The topic for today’s Romance Writers Weekly is “Teaser Tuesday.” In that spirit, I’m offering up a small slice from the project I’m currently drafting, tentatively titled To Lure a Lord. This is Book Two in my Just a Touch of Scandal series, set a few months after the events of The Accidental Viscountess.

Yes, Instant Pot

True confession time: my favorite dinner recipe is the menu at one of my local restaurants, where our favorite waiters bring us food which we don’t have to prepare or clean up after.

Monday Mood

Some weeks, that pretty much describes it all.

What are you going to get done this week?
