Sorry I haven’t updated in a while. As you may have heard, Baton Rouge and surrounding areas have suffered the worst natural disaster since Superstorm Sandy. My family is all safe, but my husband’s whole family have moved in as their house was under 28 inches of water. So there are a total of six …
My good friend Leah likes to ask questions on Facebook to start discussions. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Today’s questions got me really thinking. “What’s something YOU asked Santa for when you were younger that you never got – or did get and wish you still had?” I wanted to answer her but didn’t …

He’s been on dialysis for more than five years, and from experience, I know that dialysis is actually hell. It’s hard on patients and makes you tired, miserable, and yes, I know it’s life …
Years ago, I came home (and by home I mean to my in-laws’ house) from a NJRW meeting to meet my family, my sister-in-law and her husband for dinner at a Mexican restaurant. As we were standing in line for our table, my sister-in-law’s husband asked me what one does at a “romance writers’ meeting.” …
