Happy Jolebration Day! Today my BFF, Johannah Cantrell, would have celebrated her birthday. As per my tradition, I'm back to share fun facts & stories about Jo.

Today I Commemorate The Second Annual Jolebration Day; Celebrating the Late, Great, Johannah Cantrell! Today would've been her 59th birthday . . .

The Pitchapalooza Experience: Before, During & After Part One: Prepping to Pitch I hate to start a post by tooting my own horn, but I must admit that I was totally prepared to pitch at Pitchapalooza. At least, that's what I thought before I actually, you know, pitched!

My husband and I have had more than one skirmish over the dinnerware that has made it's way into our home during our 30+ years of marriage. (Haven't we all?) Our latest conflict was in regards to cutlery (the most dangerous kind of kitchen conflict because it involves sharp, pointy objects).

I have been compiling A Christmas list for my Younger Self.  It is a bittersweet process.  Most of us can remember that Christmas when we didn't get that special thing that we asked for.

The Trick or Treat Question of the Day: Is October 31st good for your skin? Answer: YES. (But only if you wore a mask.) See? Look at my glowing skin! Oh wait! That's a TRICK. My mask was the wrong kind of mask. You need a FACIAL mask for glowing skin. But in my case, even a facial mask won&...

A writer should always be prepared to answer the question: Who is your audience? Personally they resemble the three kindred spirits below who kindly allowed me to snap their photo at the Rolling Stone concert in DC for my own selfish means. I mean blog!

I can't take my BFF Sheila anywhere because she can't resist the urge to touch things. Like priceless artwork in museums. Or, apparently, prickly pears. Now according to google; the cure for prickly pear picking-related wounds requires two things; both of which we did not have:  (1.)  Elmer&...

I fell in love with Mick Jagger 43 years ago and we could have had a fairy tale romance, but a few problems stood in our way. The insurmountable one was AGE!

Yes, it is National Beverage Day and I'm more than a Fan - I'm an ADDICT!  

My beverage of choice is a Starbucks Iced Grande Toffee Nut Latte -- EVERY MORNING. And my family knows that it is not wise to try to converse with me until I've had mine. (Because I am NOT a morning person it seems...

Some writers have to rent a getaway in the woods so they can spend a little time writing in a quiet, peaceful setting. Not me.  I live in a bucolic setting that could be regarded a writer's paradise. My home is situated in an area called The Rural Crescent and I am surrounded by acres of trees and l...

Yesterday was 'The Bard's' birthday, which is commemorated here in the US of A by participation in the national Talk Like Shakespeare Day.  I'm a big fan of Shakespeare and I was itching to practice my bard-speak, but my family was out of town and I had no one to talk to except my dog and cat and th...

Apologies Everyone!

My dog has been blogging again.

(And, apparently, also penciling things in on ballots.)

But follow his example and VOTE!

As you now know, I have been working on a book and attending writer's conferences and learning all manner of things in regards to getting my book published.  Agents and editors always ask for my book's genre, so in an effort to be thorough and precise in identifying my book's categorical DNA, I obta...

This year I had an epiphany regarding the  "Perfect Christmas Gift". It came about while I was online shopping for my BFF and co-Some Girl, Sheila (which, of course, led me to the Rolling Stones' website).

I was delighted to find that they were selling miniatures of the Stones modeling thei...
