Shadows in Death – Review

3.5 stars - good but not great book This book is better than a three but not quite a four - 3.5 really describes it best. I like the interaction between Roarke and Dallas. Yes, I know they're married but in this book there seemed to be more equality and more acceptance of how they … Continue reading Shadows in Death – Review

Right as Rain

Finished the JD Robb book - Devoted in Death.  It was good, a little bland but overall good.  I read a bit in Cast in Sorrow by Michele Sagara.  However, it was raining last night and the sound of the rain, the thrum of it lulled me to turn out the lights early (for me) … Continue reading Right as Rain

Perfectionism is a Curse and a Blessing

Edits are done on the Wayfarer series.  I've spent the last couple of weeks working on editing the novels already published. This started because I reread them and found errors.  My impression was there were so many errors, I had to redo them.  I started the process and in doing so discovered there really weren't … Continue reading Perfectionism is a Curse and a Blessing

Hermit Hole

Essentially I'm a pretty private person.  Now if you know me personally I'll share almost any aspect of my life but if you don't know me, I'm pretty private.  It is hard for me to be on social media.  It puts me out there to a lot of people. When I went on vacation, I … Continue reading Hermit Hole

Crochet Arm

In an effort to have an afghan done before we go visit our daughters, I've been putting in a lot of hours crocheting.  Probably more than I normally do.  Yesterday, I noticed that when I tried to straighten my right arm, it hurt.  I have aches and pains all the time, so I didn't think … Continue reading Crochet Arm

Overloaded and Overwhelmed

Things are speeding up at my day job which is putting a stress on my writing and crocheting because I have so much I want to get done but I'm tired when I get home.  My pain level isn't helping but I'm hoping for milder weather in March. Mentally I have a long list of … Continue reading Overloaded and Overwhelmed

Coupons, Crocheting, and Juggling…

After I finish a manuscript and switch to something else, I feel like I'm not accomplishing anything.  I have to remind myself there is more to life than writing.  Sunday, I spent the day listening to an audio book and going through the stack of coupons.  Since my stack was so large, it took me … Continue reading Coupons, Crocheting, and Juggling…

Checked off…

Yesterday I managed to check off two big things on my to do list.  I got the taxes done for my mom and sister as well as the paperwork for my uncle.  Last night I finished writing the rough draft of Wayfarer 7. This morning I promptly rewrote the ending as it felt bad and … Continue reading Checked off…

A Return to Normal?

I hesitate to use the word normal because I don't consider myself normal but I guess I could qualify it as normal for me.This week has been busy with work and writing.  I'm neck deep in a manuscript (Wayfarer 7) and working towards finishing it.  I'm also attempting to get some editing done which thinking … Continue reading A Return to Normal?


I've found myself in a bad place with reading books right now.  I have one book I hate.  I read two chapters of it last night and wanted to throw the book (i.e. my kindle) across the room.  I've been struggling to finish this book since June of last year.  The JD Robb book I'm … Continue reading Strategy….
