Father’s Day

I’m fortunate enough to have two fathers. One who raised me and the other who welcomed me into the family after I married his son. These two men couldn’t be more different. Yet, they both fill vital positions in my life. I’m beyond grateful to have them and hope they’re around for many more years to come. Happy Father’s Day to my two dads.

Mom’s Birthday

Today is my mom’s birthday. I wish I could have been with her to celebrate. She went out with the Red Hat Ladies Society to a winery, so I believe she had a very good time. 😉 Happy Birthday Mom! I love you.

Allie’s Birthday

Today is my friend Allie’s birthday! She’s as busy as a beaver on logging day, but I’m hoping she takes some time to celebrate. It’s important to mark milestones big and small. I’m raising a glass of tea in her honor as I type this. (Pretty talented, eh? LOL!)

Happy Birthday, A!

We went to see Riddick on Sunday. It was a fun enough movie if you didn’t look too deeply into the plot holes. There are lots of action sequences for the armchair adrenaline junkie, a few slamming one-liners, and some amazing costumes. It borrows a lot from Stargate, Aliens, and the Matrix. And no, it wasn’t near as cool as any of those movies. If you have a couple hours to kill, there are certainly worse ways to spend them than watching this movie.

My Brother’s 40th…

Yesterday was my brother’s 40th birthday. I, for one cannot believe it. Impossible! That would make me…hmm…Unthinkable. I hope that Bosnia ( he’s on active duty there) treated you well yesterday. Happy Belated Birthday. Love, your sister who is MUCH, MUCH younger. 😉

Things are coming along with the writing. I’ve finished two synopses and have done first round edits on the first hundred pages of a couple of ST manuscripts. I’ve also just finished the second chapter in a cowboy novella. With any luck, I’ll get the first chapter finished of another idea I’m working on. It’s a contemporary story about a sassy woman who gets herself in a bit of an exposed position. After that, who knows what whim I’ll pursue.

Brava Chat Last Night!

Whew! For those of you who missed it, we had a good time at the old Brava chat last night. Several Brava authors turned up, including Kathy Love, who writes for Kensington Zebra. We chatted about upcoming books, writing habits, favorite reads, interesting icons, and Brad Pitt’s butt. I was going to say you had to be there for the latter in order to appreciate it, but that’s not true. (wicked grin) If you couldn’t make it last night, there are two more chats scheduled for this year. Check out the Brava author site for information. You’ll find a link for the site on my ‘links’ page. Hope to see you there.
