Book Release Day/ Off to NYC

Posted Jun 28 2011

I should have taken a picture of our guest bedroom yesterday about 4:00 pm. Clothes everywhere, all with little Post-It notes on them! Conferences are one of the few things I do that I’m very organized for. Usually, when I go to an RWA conference I’m pretty busy, and if I’m wearing the right thing, […]

Getting Ready For RWA

Posted Jun 23 2011

This summer doesn’t seem to be slowing down! This week when I haven’t been writing, sending out postcards, or organizing contests…I’ve been getting ready to go to the Romance Writers of America annual conference. I believe this will be my 9th or 10th year to go, and it’s absolutely one of my favorite ‘writing’ things […]

Suzy the Wonder-Dog

Posted Jun 16 2011

This is a picture of Suzy, our little daschund. When she was a puppy, my husband Tom taught her to smile, so when she greets you, she bares her teeth. It’s pretty funny, and involves a lot of explaining to the UPS man~he’s always sure our barky little dog is about to bite him! She […]

GRACE is a HOLT Medallion Winner!

Posted Jun 15 2011

A Few Photos

Posted Jun 14 2011
