I’d Like to Order…

My weather app claims the predicted temperature today is in the mid-80's. It's lying. By mid-afternoon, we'll be seeing 90+ on the thermometers. Yes, summertime in La-La-Land, which means perfect weather to swim, but lousy weather to cook in, unless you crank the air...

A Room of My Own

Most of my adult life, I have not had the luxury of a dedicated work space at home. I'd carve out a small corner of my bedroom when I had roommates, and shared both desk and computer with the husband for quite a number of years. Even when I got a laptop, followed by...

Yes, Instant Pot

Last week, I mentioned one of the things I'm doing during this time is learning how to use my Instant Pot. Appropriately enough, the theme for this week Romance Writers Weekly is our favorite dinner recipe. True confession time: my favorite dinner recipe is the menu...

New Year, New Start

New Year, New Start

Every year, like many folk, I set goals for the coming twelve months. I make resolutions. I draw up lists and plans. I'm going to write all the books! I'm going to lose all the weight! I'm not going to strangle the annoying people in my life as they so richly deserve....

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

“Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.”  — Author Unknown In the United States, we celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November, a day to overeat, watch too much football, make bets on what family grievances will be aired, and try not to...

Conference’s Edge

Conference’s Edge

The Romance Writers of America held their National Conference this week in New York, and for four days, I've hung on the #RWA19 and #RWA2019 tags on Twitter, gleaning what information I could. It's not the same as being there, and I'm hoping I'll be able to make it...
