About Me:
I've been writing since I was in the womb. Seriously.

I went into journalism to learn the craft. Spent 10 grueling years at newspapers before crossing over to The Dark Side - PR/Marketing. Really enjoyed it. Now, concentrating on freelancing and finding the right F-T job.

I'm a book & television critic for and freelance podcaster/blogger.

In fiction, I started off with romance, then romantic suspense and now thrillers. My current project is going fairly well. (Did I just jinx myself for saying that?!?!?!?!) I have the marketing plan worked out for this - just need to get the novel finished. (Sometimes I think I need a Closer. You know, someone to get me to the finish line. I need someone I can trust to bounce ideas off of. Someone who kicks my butt in gear - and I actually listen to them! Oh, and they should be wealthy enough to pay my meager bills so I can practice my craft full-time. Hm... sounds like an unattainable husband...)

I have two very spoiled cats, a very spoiled dog and an imagination that never shuts down.

Visit my personal blog at I'm also on MySpace at (That one isn't quite developed to what I want yet, but it's a start.) My page can be found by searching for writerluvscoffee. I also have a blog for writers on writing -

Great book

Am reading Open Me, the debut novel from Sunshine O'Donnell. Oh man, is it great. O'Donnell tackles the cult of wailers - professional weeping women hired to "mourn" at the funerals of the rich and famous. She successfully pairs fact with fiction in a really great read.

Not everyone can do that.

This book is great for book groups. It's got incredible emotional abuse of children, legislative documents and quotes from wailing training manuals that will curl your…

Hi, Angela. Although I write mystery cartoon comedy, I joined a writer's critique group of Romance Writers a little over a year ago. I was surprised that they were open to listening to my material (even the Sci-Fi stuff) and have received some valuable feedback and encouragement. They actually like it, so I know I'm hitting my target market. I noted your comments about your thriller novel you're working on. Having to keep your writing ahead of the group meetings (we meet every two weeks except at Christmas) keeps you motivated. If you haven't joined a group, I'd highly recommend it. And the author in charge has lots of interesting background info she's privy to that I'm not. This is the second group: The first one fizzled, so your first few attempts may not be the right fit. It's kind of fun, too, to talk about the craft of writing with other author's with common interests. Take care. I'm going to check your site out more later. Dawn PS. I read that Thriller Writers make more money than mystery authors.

Hi, I love dogs myself

My book RESURRECTION DIVA is just out and there is a dog as part of the story.

If you'd like a free review copy contact my publisher, LIZ, at - that's if you're interested in reviewing my book or wish to publish a blog.

Hi, I think you should get another dog. I would truthfully. I write and I don't have cats. I have two terriers (Parson Russell) and one of them would not be agreeable to cats! BTW they had puppies last year. i have a video on my page of the 3 week old puppies.
I had a cat when I lived in Manhattan that I gave away when I married my first husband. (should have kept the cat and given him away)! I loved her so I know cats are great too!

I look at the werewolf as one of the original stalker/serial killer types. He commits his heinous act, is vulnerable while in the killing state, but then afterwards becomes just another ordinary face in the crowd. I have no favorite werewolf books. Actually ten years ago I was signing up for a new hotmail account while at the same time watching the Full Monty on television. Due to my twisted sense of humor, I ended up with an account for fullmoonty and a moniker of Lycan Thrope.
Ask me another question.

You are very creative and busy with all the website and community networking, not to mention PopSyndicate. Keep up the work, but make time to write...
My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.

Hey, Angela!
Thanks for adding me to the "Books and Authors I like." You're on my "Reviewers I like" list for sure.

Thanks for sending the address--I'll send you an ARC. Hope you enjoy the story! My memories of journalism informed some of my characters, including the news director who addresses everyone by "Whaddaya got?" But unlike me, my heroine thrives in that environment. She must be made of studier stock! Delete Comment
