Bronze medals and top five finalists

September 3, 2015

September 1, 2015 was a good day. I awoke and turned on my computer. Had to check the Kindle Book Awards to see if I made it into the top 5 finalists in my category. I didn’t even have to look it up because an author peep had posted the link with congrats for making […]

Two-bit fiction

August 10, 2015

I’ve been posting a lot about Mom and Alzheimer’s lately. Probably because it seems to be taking over my life. And apparently, it’s contagious (seriously, I can’t remember the simplest things). So for a break, how about back to the writing? I am struggling to find the time to dive into novel number five. So […]

Winner, winner, New York chicken dinner

June 2, 2015

On a whim, I decided to go to Book Expo America this year in New York City. Ok, not so much a whim. I went because I won an award for Mazie Baby, and damn it, I wanted to pick up that little trophy in person. Especially since you don’t get the trophy if you […]

Goody One Shoe

May 27, 2015

I am thrilled to announce release of my latest novel, Goody One Shoe, available on Amazon. This was a fun story to write. A superhero fantasy of sorts, without the fantasy. It centres around Wilhelmina (Billie) Fullalove, 32-year-old virgin and below-the-knee amputee thanks to a shoot-out in an alley when she was 11. Her parents […]

Adventures in Alzheimer’s – microwaves on fire edition

May 25, 2015

Baby girl and the boy who sleeps with her took Mom her meds one morning and discovered the microwave in the bathtub. Turns out, it lit on fire. So Mom’s fix was to pour water into it. Then she wrangled it to the bathroom and dumped it in the tub, then filled the tub with […]

Warning – foul language ahead

April 8, 2015

Not everyone swears like a trucker (with all due respect to truckers). Some folks go their whole life without one cuss word. That’s kind of like people who never get cavities. How the hell do they DO that? In case you haven’t noticed – I swear. I like the sound and feel of words I […]

I’m not supposed to wear what?

February 14, 2015

Articles about what women of a certain age should not wear have been flying around social media like the Wicked Witch’s evil monkeys. One article claimed that women over 30 (thirty! We’re still children at 30!) should avoid 24 specific things, including graphic T’s, eye shadow, mini-skirts, bedazzled anything, and leopard print. May I just […]
