Travel Must-Haves

  You guys know I am in Anaheim for the annual RWA conference this week.  It’s an extra long trip this year, from Saturday to the following Sunday.  I had to pack a lot of clothes.  A LOT.  Since I wear shorts and yoga pants every single day at my job (which is in my […]

The Debate Is On!

The Whine Sisters prefer to avoid political issues, but I thought it would be fun to imagine what we might ask if we could moderate a debate. In order to get to know where these candidates really stand on the issues, I would ask the hard-hitting questions. My top five: 1. Everyone always asks about […]


Since Sherri’s blog yesterday started off our week with a smile, I thought I’d keep the trend going and add to my recent “Favorites” theme–since things we love bring smiles.  This week let’s talk about foods. It’s almost impossible for me keep a list of my favorite foods down to a minimum because I pretty much love […]

Young and at the Top of Their Game

So Darren Criss, from Glee, is all set to take over for Daniel Radcliff  on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business for three weeks.  And quite frankly I’d kill for a ticket.  Criss is a triple threat, he can act, he can sing and he can dance.   And he isn’t too hard on the […]

Part One–My Latest Adventure

Last week I posted about the first leg of our recent Arizona adventure which took place in sunny Scottsdale where my DH had conference.  When the conference ended,we rented a car and began the four hour drive to the Grand Canyon–a place we’ve both always wanted to visit. We broke up the trip by stopping […]

YUM! I Love Marshmallows

I love marshmallows.  Love their soft texture, their sweet taste, their ooey, gooey goodness.  I love them roasted, toasted, covered in chocolate, or plopped in hot chocolate.  My favorite sandwich is a Fluffernutter (peanut butter and marshmallow fluff). My favorite part of being a girl scout was making s’mores over the campfire.   My favorite part of […]

Moose’s Fabulous Vacation

Moose loves doggie day care.  All I have to do is say, “wanna go to day care?” and he goes NUTS.  He starts jumping around in circles and throwing himself at me and at doors.  So this week, while I am in New York with my mother, my sister, and two nieces, Moose will be […]

When I Grow Up, I Want To Be…

Okay, so most of you won’t be surprised to know that what I really wanted to be when I grew up was Stevie Nix.  Seriously, all I wanted was to sing in a band and be a rocker.   Of course, my parents weren’t all that keen on the idea.   And although I did sing off […]

What Makes A Romance?

I considered making this a really techy-writing post, but I’m sort of techy-writing-ed out.  I’m just starting on the new book and that is never easy for me, so I decided to do something fun today instead. Lately I’ve been thinking about romance, the genre.  Recently my editor was talking about some of the changes […]

Admit It You Knew I had To Have It

So, yes, I bought an iPad. And, yes, I’m loving it! It was the inclusion of real wordprocessing and spreadsheet software (Pages and Numbers) that did it for me. The iBook thing still hasn’t tempted me. I have the Kindle App, and it looks just fine on the iPad. I may buy from iBook. I […]
