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.

The tales of Frat Boy & Dumb Ass

I am HARD at work, writing outside in the woods as I tend to do. I have Frat Boy and Dumbass with me, and lo and behold, a group of five guys on bikes come through. All shirtless. All very nicely … proportioned. And what does Dumbass do? She leaps up from her nap at my feet and goes postal, scaring one of the guys into falling over. I pretended I didn’t know her but proud of herself that she’s conquered this threat, she trots right back to me. Gah. Dumbass is banned from writing time until further notice…

A bargain!

How would you feel if you ran into the guy you lost your virginity (and heart) to … a decade later? This is what happens to Lotti when Sean O’Riley shows up at her B&B. Yes, this is Sean from the Heartbreaker Bay series, and his story, HOLIDAY WISHES, is only $0.99!

If you’re following my Heartbreaker Bay series, you know about bad boy Sean. If you’re not following the series, it’s never too late! All the books can stand alone so you can start anywhere, but why not start with one that’s only $0.99? :)

It’ll be available in print as well but those buy links aren’t up quite yet. For now you can get Kindle and other versions like Nook or iBooks as well.

So what do we say, worth preordering for $0.99? Spread the word! :)

Happy Hump Day

Doing something different today, using real life heroes for my writing inspiration!

and here’s my own pic with Alpha Man and Middle’s dog Dobby aka Dumbass.

Sensing a theme? There’s just something about a real guy and his dog… Anyone agree?

Monday Madness

So not too long ago I was using Find My Friends app to stalk my children as I like to do… and it showed Oldest in … Ontario, Toronto.

As in Canada.

Odd, as she’s never been to Canada. I texted her and she didn’t respond. So with visions of her having been kidnapped (what? I’m a mom, I worry!), I texted The Boy. HE texted right back that yes, he had eyes on my daughter AND her phone and, as he assured me, they were not in Canada, 2,500 miles away but in the city. As in San Francisco.

An hour later I checked Oldest’s “dot” on the app. Now it showed she was at a winery in Sonoma.

I again texted Oldest. She answered this time and said nope, she was not at a winery in Sonoma but still in the city and that she would tell me when and if she changed locations.

Fine. But naturally I couldn’t help but peeking at the app once more later that night. It showed her at Disneyland. I resisted calling her, you should be very proud of me. But Find My Friends app? You need to lay off the crack pipe, that’s all I’m saying.

conversations

Alpha Man put in a very long day on the lake working Disabled Sports, which he’s been doing several weekends every summer for fifteen years now. He came home completely sun and wind burned. Day two, I forced him to wear sunscreen and a hat, which just happened to be a Giants hat. Oh and I have I mentioned he’s half deaf? This is how just one of our many of our conversations went:

Alpha Man: I look ridiculous.

Me: You look like a Giants fan.

Alpha Man: Good, because I am a vagina fan.

Me: No, I said … you know what, never mind.

Happy Hump Day!

I had to go deep into the archives for the right picture today and I think I found it…

He is MOST definitely going in a book. Okay with you?
