Jill's Blog

Welcome to my daily blog. If this is your first time, I'm a romance writer and a misplaced city girl currently living in the wild Sierras. I tend to have a lot of I-Love-Lucy moments that I share here but sometimes we talk about books, TV, and our favorite cookies. Okay, my favorite cookies. In any case, please feel free to comment by clicking on the Comments at the bottom of any entry. If you're too shy, that's okay, just know I love having you.

Tuesday Hotness

I’ve got a thing for a whole lot of people named Chris. Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, and let’s not forget Chris Pine…


Who do you have a thing for lately? Inquiring minds wanna know. :bye:

Conversations with my hero

Hero: Why is it taking you 3 days to write me a sex scene?
Me: Because it’s hard!
Hero: Yeah it is.
Me: Er, um, you know what i mean! Now go away and behave!
Hero: Babe, I don’t ever behave, which you should know, you wrote me…

(speaking of which, while my current hero is driving me batshit crazy, leave me a comment with your favorite Shalvis hero and which book he came from and three of you will win my next book NOBODY BUT YOU!)

Only in my house

So I was on the treadmill — I know, I know, but I have to work off the Lemon Oreos somehow! In any case, I have the music blaring via earbuds and I look down to see Satan– er, Sadie the cat is staring at the treadmill with curiosity. You see, she’s never seen it in motion before, she thought it was a device to hang stuff on.

Blinks innocently….

ANYWAY, Sadie goes to step on the treadmill while I’m really moving (but not, you should note, actually running cuz my body objects vehemently to running). Trying to save the cat, I make a “pssst” sound, the kind you make to scare off a curious feline. But with the earbuds in, I can’t tell how loud I am and apparently I was pretty loud. And since that sound also tells Dobby, aka Dumbass, that it’s playtime, the dog woke up out of a dead sleep and came at the cat.

So I yell at her to stop, taking my attention off the cat for ONE SECOND, during which she takes a leap onto the treadmill with me. She promptly goes FLYING off the back like a rocket and hits the wall. I whirled around, terrified I’ve just killed the cat, and almost die myself. By the time I get the treadmill turned off, the cat and the dog are in a faceoff, growling at each other, certain that whatever just happened was the other one’s fault.

THIS is why I don’t exercise.

p.s. the cat wasn’t harmed, just furious. The dog lived to tell the tale. I needed cookies to get over it …
