Remember When…

by Sherri Browning Erwin

We whined about annoying people doing annoying things? Pet peeves. One of mine is people who leave their shopping carts in the middle of the parking lot, especially when they are right next to a cart return. How hard is it to put your cart in the right place? I understand when there are extenuating [...]

Weekend Reads: Kathleen Givens

by Sherri Browning Erwin

For our last Weekend Reads spot, I had to honor one of our original Whine Sisters, Kathleen Givens. Her books are out there, and they are amazing! If you’re still dragging your feet and haven’t read one, do it! Do it now! It all started with Kilgannon.  A place where love and war collide–and she [...]

Whine-ding Down?!??

by Terri Brisbin

Gosh — not fair!! I’ve have been ramping up my whining and we’re slowing down here?! For anyone who hasn’t read my FB posts lately, I’ve been out of work/life recuperating from shoulder surgery for the last 5 weeks. . . and going absolutely stir-crazy! Which, I guess, means that I must be getting better? [...]

Whine-ding Down

by Sherri Browning Erwin

  NO! Viktor and Rolf’s No Coat expresses how I feel (and looks great for fall, I think I need that). But alas, yes. We’re wrapping up our run here at the Whine Sisters. we started in 2004, with Kathleen Givens, Julia London, and me, Sherri Browning Erwin. And we’ve had a great near-decade with [...]

Liquid Gold

by Wendy Etherington

For a book I wrote, I once researched the most expensive products by ounce. Oddly enough, printer ink won the pricey contest. (Human blood came in fifth, by the way.) I don’t remember my new fixation being in the top ten, but I’m beginning to think it wasn’t much further down. I’ve recently become enamored [...]

Help a Fellow Out!

by Sherri Browning Erwin

I was reading on Jezebel about this lonely single man who is having trouble finding his ideal match. His website is Sleepless in Austin. I don’t know why, but I immediately thought of Julia London. Oh, Austin. Of course. He’s in her neck of the woods! Match made in heaven? Let’s check out his list of [...]

Weekend Reads: To Hell with Love/Naughty or Nice

by Sherri Browning Erwin

I happened to notice that the Kindle pricing on my paranormal romances were down a bit, so I figured it was time I recommended that you pick them up.  To Hell with Love was meant to be a paranormal woman’s fiction, but it went out as romance and some readers expected a different ending (as [...]

Sharing Secrets

by Sherri Browning Erwin

I don’t watch The Talk, but last week I wished I did. All of the anchors shared deep secrets with the viewers, and the articles about it afterwards made for intriguing reading. I’m sure it made for even better TV, but… missed it. Sheryl Underwood revealed that she had a secret twin sister. She died [...]

We Bought A Farm!

by Jacquie D'Alessandro

Life here at Casa D’Alessandro has recently changed a lot. Remember that Matt Damon flick We Bought a Zoo? Well, that’s us–except we bought a farm! It’s about ten miles from our house and is already fully operational and has been in business for fifteen years. The gentleman who owned it is turning 80 and decided [...]

A chilling psychological thriller about a marriage, a way of life, and how far one woman will go to keep what is rightfully hers. Jodi and Todd are [...]

September 11

by Sherri Browning Erwin

My daughter’s boyfriend works in New York City, posted this picture to his Facebook yesterday, taken when he got out of work late and realized the ghost lights were on. A very moving reminder of all we lost that day, and all we gained from each other in the aftermath. Peace and love to you [...]

Cereal Killers

by Sherri Browning Erwin

It’s that time of year! Halloween, when monster cereals make their return to the cereal aisle and I resume my torrid affair with Count Chocula.  My most favorite breakfast cereal ever, Count Chocula. I also love his friends, Frankenberry and Boo Berry. When they can’t be found (not Halloween), I occasionally indulge in my next [...]

Weekend Reads: Harry Potter Series

by Sherri Browning Erwin

I’m not actually reading them again. I’m watching the movies on ABC Family, playing them all weekend.  Fond memories. I read the books with my kids as they came out, when they were the ages of the kids cast in the films. Watching the Potter kids grow through the films is like going through the [...]

From Sunny St. Louis

by Sherri Browning Erwin

Writing in my outdoor office while the housekeeper cleans my room. Gorgeous weather. There are woods all around and a river running right beyond the pool. Some of the leaves are just starting to turn. The cicadas are near-deafening, but I like their sound. Yeah, this isn’t home. I’m at a Marriott in St. Louis, [...]

Midweek Reads: Jane Eyre

by Sherri Browning Erwin

The original! If you haven’t picked it up in awhile, treat yourself. Or watch the movie version with Michael Fassbender as Rochester (hubba). Or if you have read Jane Eyre, maybe try Wide Sargasso Sea (Bertha Rochester’s story reimagined) or Jane Slayre (fun times, vampyre slaying). Or Jane Eyre Laid Bare, the erotic retelling. From [...]

Strange Hobbies and Their Repercussions

by mollyharper

My husband looks down at my foot, up at me, and then back at my foot. “How did this happen?” David asks, pointing to the big toe where I am missing the “top half” of my toe nail. “Jiu jitsu on Tuesday, I caught my toes on the mat when we were practicing elbow escapes. [...]

Weekend Reads: Outlander

by Sherri Browning Erwin

Hard to believe, perhaps, (especially since we were just discussing Dee Davis’s fabulous time travel romances) but I’ve never read Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander books. I asked my Facebook and Twitter peeps if I should, and the answer was a resounding YES! So I guess I will get right on that. From Goodreads: The year is [...]

What’s Good for the Goose…

by Sherri Browning Erwin

New trend alert: Dudeoir Photoography.  You’ve heard of Boudoir portraits? Women having artsy, glamorized photos taken of themselves in lingerie or suggestive poses? Often as presents for their men or to boost their own self-esteem. I have a friend (not a Whine Sister) who had this done and she loved the results, felt really great [...]
