So, the old blog turns 2 today. Cake balls for everyone!
I’m going to try something new. Something that scares the shit out of me. I’m going to share with you a bit of the first chapter of my WIP. Why? Because it’s time to take another step outside my comfort … Continue reading
At the beginning of the year, I decided to participate in the Embarrassment of Riches reading challenge hosted by author Patricia Burroughs. The goal of the challenge is to make a dent in that stack of books I have been … Continue reading
On Saturday, I surpassed my Camp NaNoWriMo goal by 4K+ words. That means I won. Yippee! Time for a celebration. Tequila and Ren Faire, it is. Don’t judge me. So, now it’s over. The euphoria that comes with accomplishment is … Continue reading
I reached – and surpassed – my Camp NaNoWriMo word count goal. That makes me a winner.
“A murderer is less loathsome to us than a spy. The murderer may have acted on a sudden mad impulse; he may be penitent and amend; but a spy is always a spy, night and day, in bed, at [the] … Continue reading
I’m as busy as a bee in a bluebonnet field, working to win Camp NaNoWriMo. I can see the finish line dancing on the horizon.
I needed a little alone time today, so I loaded up my camera gear, grabbed a notebook and schlepped into the city. My destination? The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, of course. I spent this beautiful spring Sunday meandering through … Continue reading

I learned this week (and last…and maybe even the week before that): …that there is an old saying in Bohemia (Czechoslovakia): “When a Czech owns a goat…his neighbor does not yearn for a goat of his own; he wants the … Continue reading
Okay, maybe not. But I did run into a spotted leopard, a funny looking bear, and a cheeky koi while on vacation recently.
Last June, I turned forty. A dubious milestone no woman strives to achieve but like most unpleasant things in life, aging is completely unavoidable. I took it on the chin. I didn’t take to my bed in a blubbering fit … Continue reading
I have been sitting here all morning avoiding my WIP by sifting through some old photos I shot last spring. I can’t wait for everything to bloom again. Here are few of the more interesting ones. Enjoy. The bee is … Continue reading
“As life goes on it becomes tiring to keep up the character you invented for yourself, and so you relapse into individuality and become more like yourself everyday.” – Agatha Christie I learned this week… …that it appears I … Continue reading
I have never been one to put too much stock in Valentine’s Day – even when I was young and possessed a more romantic sensibility. As an uncompromising cynic, I find the commerciality of it all ridiculous, and can’t help … Continue reading
“Proof brevity does not protect against dullness.” – Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes in regard to Twitter. I learned this week… …that I don’t have to worry about those pesky little logarithms, after all. My Historical Geology professor announced … Continue reading
