I wish I had a dollar for every time I got some version of the question, "Where do you get ideas for your books?" Seriously. I'd own a vacation home in Turks and Caicos and still have a fat bank account. Sending up a prayer. 

The best example of the random things that i...

So, I've been gone from my blog for a minute (ok, ok, over a month). I've been out doing stuff. Last post I said I was trying to get in the spring time mood. Thank goodness sunshine, blue skies, and birds singing came to the rescue at last.  I was beginning to think cl...

For various reasons I decided to take a break from writing. Being a homeowner means there is always something to do. Even more when you have a yard, a big one at that. I don't mow the grass. I pay for a service. Cal does a much better, faster, and more effective job th...

After days of rain and cloudy, dreary days the sun is out!!! The sky is blue!!!! #Shock

Friends and cousins up north/northeast have posted on Facebook about more snow, high winds, subzero temps. So, um, I had to stop mid-whine about so many rainy days. Of course, we've...

I've spent that last week or so wrestling with my muse. Okay, let me be honest. I'm not one of those writers who makes excuses. My characters don't "talk back to me" or refuse to behave. What helps me is the knowledge that I'm in full control. The "muse" is really me....

When other little girls were playing with dolls or reading Millie the Model comic books, I was reading this right here. Yeah, baby! I loved those scary comics the most. I also loved the ones that featured hard-boiled detectives solving crimes on the seamy side of life....

So, I'm doing my daily at the Y on the treadmill. I love that they have built-in TVs attached to them and on the elliptical machines. I catch up on HGTV (Flip or Flop, House Hunters, Love it or List It) and Court TV shows. You know, the important stuff.

Anywho, I flipp...

One of my 2017 goals was to do cover face-lifts on several books. I know many of them need a fresher, better look. But 22 books y'all. That's a lot of $$$ for the "Starving Artiste." I'm working on the 5th book of my LaShaun Rousselle paranormal mystery series. Though...
