Name That …

Do you want to play a game? I do! Have you ever spent some time reading your television’s guide channel blurbs? You know, you’re scrolling through the 952 channels to see what’s on and you see a familiar film name, highlight it and then stare at the blurb agog? For example, the film I am thinking of right now read: Asteroid heads for Earth as a man’s daughter finds love with his employee. Now, if you saw that blurb anywhere, would you really be that interested? Or: Women play baseball while men fight war. Tom Hanks stars. Penny Marshall directed. […]

Sunday Snips and Clips: Fences, Fairies and Wildlife Funds

It’s Sunday again and what a brutal way to kick it off. A few minutes before midnight, a car crashed through our fence into the backyard. We heard the smash and bang, but the car pulled out and drove away before we made it outside. We were up till 1:30 in the morning with the police who are investigating it and looking for the culprit. Sadly, no catch yet. 16 feet of fence are ripped out, along with one of the metal posts and the concrete base of the metal post. So today I get to call our insurance company […]

Sustaining the Dual Levels of a Romantic Suspense

I was excited when Heather asked me to be her guest today. I was more excited when she asked me to write on a specific topic. You see, while it’s true that I’m a writer it’s also true that I struggle to come up with fresh, creative blog topics people may want to read about. Then I read her requested topic about sustaining the different levels of romance and suspense in my stories, and I thought “Yeek! She’s gonna make me think.” I’ve debated ways to effectively tell you how I balance the different aspects of my stories. I’ve decided […]

Carry On My Wayward Son

It’s Supernatural Thursday and that means announcing who won the Supernatural Back in Black contest that kicked off with the return of our favorite Thursday night supernatural hunters: Dean and Sam Winchester. The boys are facing down Armageddon, but also their town troubled and dysfunctional relationship. Last week, Sam and Dean parted company as Sam went off to find his own redemption and way leaving Dean to handle the mess that was Lucifer Rising. Tonight, we’ll see Dean joined by Castiel as they continue Castiel’s search for God (who may very well be running around in a human suit of […]
