Because I am the mom of a teen-aged daughter and volunteer as the co-leader for her Girl Scout troop, I spend a lot of time around kids between the ages of 13 and 18. I've realized something over the last few months. I want to be young again! Not just young, but young enough to know it all!
Yes, I wish I was young enough to know it all again! I want to be:
Young enough to think I had all the answers to every single one…Continue

For the life of me I simply cannot understand why the opinions of others matters so much to some people. We've all heard the line about opinions being like various parts of the human anatomy--everyone's got one and most of them smell. Maybe it's because I stopped giving a damn what other people thought of me early enough that I was left without that need for approval, but whenever I hear about two adults (kids are always forgiven for not knowing better) fighting over what amounts to a…

,,,and boy do my legs ache! Seriously! I walked, stood, ran, and/or shuffled for three days. My legs will never feel like a part of my body again, and I simply couldn't care less! I had a BLAST! Malice was amazing!!
Funny story here. I'm sitting outside one of the panel rooms, getting my day in order, checking the mini guide book they handed out, making sure I'm in the right spot and trying to decide what to do next, when this sweet lady walks up and sits down with me and we start to…Continue

I'm so excited. I'm attending Malice Domestic for the first time this year. Until last year, I didn't even know it existed and now just the thought of being in the same room with some of my favorite authors has me goosebumpy and giggling like a school girl. Amazing to me!
Hopefully, while I'm in the room with the likes of Margaret Maron, Carolyn Hart, Cathy Pickens and so many others, their muses will shake an accusatory finger at mine and asked about that sorry work ethic of hers.…Continue

I have been following all the updates on the news coming out of Virginia Tech since this horrible thing happened. Even though I don't know anyone personally who attends VT, this has still left its mark on me.
Events like this should only happen in fiction. No one should ever have to feel so dispirited as to see no other escape than to die and take others with him.
The fact that the doors were chained shut from the inside to prevent escape makes me cringe. It makes me want to…Continue

I'm looking forward to next year and planning my excuses for travelling. Do you attend the Cape Fear Crime Festival in Wilmington NC? Wondering if it's worth the plane fare. Of course, if I get to see you that gives it extra points!
I can relate to the home improvement/finance debacle! Well, I hope you can still try to go to Malice. I am waiting to sell one house now, so my chances of going are partly dependent on that. Anyhow, thanks for telling me about Austin Camacho-I'll look for the book. If you haven't read any of Sarah Graves' Home Repair is Homicide novels, give them a go! The stories are set in Maine-giving them a decidedly Yankee flavor.
I'll have to put some dog pictures on my page. We have four now because my husband rescued two puppies recently (setter mix and very cute!).
Just popped in to say hello! Are you doing National Novel Writing Month this year? Also, Are you planning to go to
Malice again this spring? Let me know, I'd love to hear from you!
Thanks for visiting my page-it was fun to set up. I appreciate your kind words and I agree I'm very happy to be in familiar company. Loved your story on Crime and Suspense. I need to not be a wuss and get something posted on that site, too!
Hugs to you, too!
thanks for the chatter. (I would never do that to one of my own!! But it is funny) If you want to read the reason for my new and perhaps improved persona, check out the writersplot blog today,www.writersplot.typepad.com) Or not. Don't want to be accused of spamming!! :-)
