Jo, Wendy, Carla, and I spent last week submerged in the world of books. We attended the 2014 RT Booklovers’ Convention in New Orleans. I don’t know if their experience was like mine, although I suspect it was, but I’m going to give you a sample of what I learned. 1. Readers love books, and …
Noah and I were at the grocery store after school today and since we only got a couple of things, we headed toward the express lane. As i approached it, I saw a woman with a basket (those hand carried ones) full of things in one hand. Her other hand was holding onto a little …
Fabric of Faith is a book I wrote a very long time ago (it was published in 2004) while living in Germany. I have a Google Alert set up for “Nancy S. Brandt,” and this is what I discovered today. This review was written on 27 March 2014, and clearly the writer is not a …
Actually the news is from Friday. My baby brother finally got a kidney transplant!!!! Whoo Hoo!!! This is me and Rob. 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 …
As a romance/fantasy author and a member of my local RWA chapter, I tend to end up with a lot of bookmarks. Our chapter has an annual Readers’ Luncheon, and authors from all over send piles and boxes of bookmarks. I’m not exaggerating when I say that for over a year, we had a cubic …
Recently, I got the Pampered Chef Brownie Pan. I absolutely love it, and not just because you can make these: These are super easy – place and bake cookies (two squares per pan space) pressed into the bottom, topped with a mini peanut butter cup (or an Oreo) and then a spoonful of brownie mix. …
We always put off celebrating Valentine’s Day because my husband’s parents’ anniversary is 14 Feb. Now that they live near us, we spend that day with them. This year, because my mother-in-law had an accident with her motorized scooter where her face met the mall parking lot HARD, she is bruised all over her face, …
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.” …
When we moved from PA to Louisiana in 2005, one of the first things we did was buy a new refrigerator. I loved that it came with an ice maker. One of my favorite things is a large glass of instant decaf iced tea filled with ice. A couple of years ago, the ice maker …
Why would I think that, you ask. After all, I am the perennial hostess of the Heart of Louisiana‘s annual Readers’ Luncheon. Well, recently, two things happened that make me question this. About a month and a half ago, I had an appointment with my pain doctor to get my meds refilled. I do this …
