I’m not much of a gambler. In the past when I’ve gone to Las Vegas, I’ve never spent more than $20.00 on the slot machines. Total, not per day. Sure, I’d go with my mother to Bingo every time I would visit, but that was more about spending time with her, doing something she loved.… Read More Gambling
While we were driving through New Mexico, I noticed a sign that said: If you don’t establish your brand, be prepared to be branded (or something like that). Obviously it was an advertisement for someone to help with business marketing. That got me to thinking what brand has been attached to me from readers. I… Read More Branding
You would think that summer is here in my neck of the woods because the temperatures have reached triple digits. Yup 100 degrees the other day, well into the nineties yesterday and expected for today as well. The heat has put a strain on many things, including our plants and the new kittens. Poor mama… Read More Summer Is Almost Here…
I came close to not writing a blog this week, but then I felt guilty. So, I decided to write one and provide a sneak peek at my new novel coming out in July, titled, The Others. For the very first time, this book is not a romash. There are precious few WLW action adventure… Read More Action! Adventure!
I’m a middle child and normally that means I play the role of peacekeeper in the family. Conflict is particularly hard for middle kids. Offering an olive branch is usually the go to move for middle children. I’m not sure when this philosophy changed for me, but it has. I used to be the type… Read More Middle Child
This past year has been a year of anxiety driven waiting. First, I counted the days until my retirement. Then COVID 19 hit and we all waited for things to return to normal, for lockdowns to lift, etc. (we’re still waiting). But the biggest waiting has occurred around politics. Extremely important political elections to be… Read More Waiting…
Heart palpitations. Pacing the floor, mumbling to yourself. Acting like a complete fool as you stare at the object of your obsession. My palms begin to sweat. There are a lot more than butterflies moving around in my stomach. I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. I’m up all night waiting for those three little words.… Read More Is it Love?
This past week I had an epiphany…I am one of those. Despite my protestations that I would never remain in an unhealthy, abusive, co-dependent, relationship, I find myself willingly forgiving my demon spawn, Nico. Sure, he isn’t a partner or spouse…remember I’m a lesbian. Nico is my beloved black cat. Many of you may already… Read More Unhealthy Relationships
This past week I’ve been binge watching The Boys, an Amazon Prime series with an interesting premise. The twist to the series is representing superheroes as extremely flawed beings. The revelation on why they are so flawed comes about later in the series. However, I was stuck on how villainous the series made most of… Read More Superheroes
This past week I made an enormous error by posting a very small clip of a scene without the full context. This isn’t the first time something was misconstrued so I should have known better, but hey, I continue to be human. Fortunately for me, I have readers who will let me know when something… Read More Everything in Context….
