The Lure of Demolition

With the new year, I’ve gone back to my morning stationary bike rides–which means watching TV again. Yahoo! I’d missed it during the “gym only” months. Those home renovation shows are my guilty pleasure. Luckily, my husband Gary digs a few of them, too, depending on the personalities of the hosts. (He likes Desert Flippers most right now. […]

Meet Cute at Church

At church a couple of days ago, my teenaged girls were in their Sunday school class, and the lesson was on choosing a good husband to make a great family. (Good lesson topic, right? Way to go, Sunday teachers!)  When my 13yo told me that, it made me think of how Gary and I met–our […]

I Saw John Lennon at the Gym

Hello, Reading Friends. So, I joined a gym. It’s not what you think! I joined last fall–not January 1st–when my son left for college.

Five Movies that Define You

The other day a friend tossed out a topic on Facebook and asked for responses. Despite what initially looked like a fluffy subject, he received some insightful answers. His question was this: Name five movies that define you. Not that are your favorite, or that make you think, but that are a reflection of who you are. The […]

My Man is So Manly

I’m working like a banshee on an edit. I have to do a character overhaul because in the early drafts, the hero wasn’t manly!  Ain’t nobody got time for that. Not in a romance.  I went to talk to my husband (muse) for ideas. He was busy. “Whatcha doing?”He said, “Oh, my laptop’s screen got cracked, […]

Most Embarrassing Moments: Dating Edition

I promised you a “most embarrassing date” story. The truth is, there are probably too many to choose from. I have always been the person without a filter, and that has led to far too many “life experiences.”  But dating is a whole ‘nother world. I’ll just share one for now. So. On this one […]
