From October 13 – October 16, 2011, I attended the GayRomLit retreat in New Orleans. This was the retreat’s very first year, a chance for readers and authors of m/m romance to network, meet each other, and have a bit of fun at the same time. It was organized by authors Carol Lynne, Amanda Young, Ethan Day, Lynn Lorenz and JP Bowie, and while it did not go off without a hitch (does anything ever?), the snags were minimal, the hosts gracious, and the experience...Read Full Post »

My jello brain mold that it is. I have been waiting for weeks for it to arrive and alas it is here. I hurriedly ran out and bought a bunch of different flavors. I kept asking myself, and friends what color I make it, and though I had some fabulous recommendations, I had to go with red for the first try. It came out beautifully!
Now for the real fun...I am just trying to figure out how I can make a jello shot brain. What flavor and how much booze is going to have to go into tha...Read Full Post »

I recently found myself posed with the following question: what makes an author "good"?
What a loaded question. There are so many answers to that question, and truthfully, none of them could be wrong. For me, it is so many things. It is the inherent talent of grabbing me so tightly that I don't want to be let go until the very last word. It’s the author’s ability to paint a picture in my mind so vivid that Hollywood co...

On the 4th of July, I had Teagan and her family over for a barbque. I got all kinds of excited after she accepted the invitation and set about planning a menu. I had healthy options for her and me, as we are both still trying to lose weight; I had vegetarian options, in case her daughter changed her mind and decided to come over; and I had the unhealthy choices for everyone else. Then I went shopping and filled our fridge and pantry full of stuff.

Now that summer has officially started, it is now beginning to feel a lot like spring here in the great Pacific Northwest. Along with the new semi- sunny warm weather, my family is experiencing a great deal of change. My husband is going back to school to embark on a new career, my oldest daughter has graduated from elementary school and will be having new adventures in middle school, my toddler is about to become a preschooler and fighting potty traini...

The joy of a wonderful author!
Being a reviewer isn't always the greatest thing. I love doing it most of the time. Heck, I would say even 95% of the time, I love doing reviews. I am a voracious reader that just can't get enough. Though lately I have been a bit MIA and I hate that. Life does get in the way.
That 5% comes from books that suck and the lack of variety out there, as well as NASTY people, but the good outweighs the bad in the ...Read Full Post »

I don’t know if it’s the weather (which until a couple of days ago still felt like fall) or what, but the last few weeks I have been finding myself feeling all kinds of restless. Nothing seems interest me or hold my attention. I haven’t wanted to write reviews or blogs. I don’t want to watch TV or even really read much, and if you really know me, then you know my two favorite things to do are to lose myself in front of the boob t...

Teagan and I went to see Bridesmaids on Sunday, and it was hilarious. One thing that I liked about it, aside from the fact that I laughed so hard I cried, is that it reminded me of the importance of having a group of gal pals.
Although my best girlfriends have changed over the years, I have always had a best friend and a group of friends to hang out with. In school, we were never the most popular girls, but we could hold our own. As I have got...

Last week at work, I had to participate in a week-long meeting to revamp a department process. Our company does these multiple times a year, but this was my first time participating in one. I had heard stories about how tiring it was, but you never really know how exhausting it is until you’re in the middle of one. Clea
Every night I ca...

Recently, I have been on a Jello Shot making kick. I have been invited to a few girl get togethers and they said bring something fun. So I thought what is more fun than a jello shot? Okay there really are tons of things much more fun than jello shots but they really are up there on the Fun-O-Meter. I'm not sure what is more fun - making them or slurping them down. It's amazing the combinations that you can come up with on a whim. Let's take this last Satur...Read Full Post »
