Caution – cute alert

Tweet(If you are feeling like you have too much sugar in your system, do not read this post.) Mer and I have been adopted. By cats. Two moms and six kittens, to be precise. They showed up on our back porch yesterday. The kittens are at the most adorable stage possible – still nursing, but […]

Humid thoughts

TweetSpent yesterday stuck in paperwork hell. Rewarded myself this morning by getting a coffee at Starbucks. Got personal brownie points by making it to the post office before it opened. I was number four in line. The interview at Recorded Books last week was lots of fun. The quality of the soundproof booth freaked me […]

Home again

TweetMiss me? The graduation was amazing. Background: my sister has three kids – Tiffany (9th grade), April (happy graduate), and Ryan, (age 20). Ryan is a private in the US Army and has been stationed in South Korea for a year. It was hoped that he could return home on his first leave for his […]

Dashing to the Big Apple

TweetI leave in a minute to catch a train to New York City. I’ll be visiting the offices of Recorded Books, where they are finishing up the recording of the PROM audiobook. They want to add a brief interview with me at the end of the tape. Here’s hoping I don’t come off as a […]

It always happens

TweetSo I was hacking away at my WIP yesterday and I came across a mirage. My tiny writer’s brain thought it saw a better book in the distance, tempting me, calling to me. “You don’t want to continue in your WIP,” it cooed. “Come to me. I am the perfect novel. Look – aren’t my […]

Even pale people visit the beach

TweetI spent yesterday at the Jersey Shore, Sea Isle City, to be precise. Instead of a traditional graduation party, Mer wanted to hang at the shore with her parents and some friends. Her dad and step-mom graciously offered the use of their house. Her dad took the Sat. night shift, and I turned up for […]

I missed it!

TweetI can’t believe I missed Bloomsday yesterday! Gah! I’m an idiot. I love the writing of James Joyce. No, he’s not a beach read. He’s a challenge (at least for me). But he made the English language sing. If I ever write something that is one-ten-thousandanth as good as what he writes, I’ll be a […]

More on cover art

TweetFirst – my walk. On my walk this morning I saw young starlings, goldfinches, house sparrows, and mockingbirds learning how to fly. They weren’t all learning together, though it would have been cooler if they had – you know, what with the economy and all, more and more bird parents having to put their toddlers […]

Daydream

TweetMaybe when I finish my novel, I’ll apply for this guy’s job. BH is driving back North today, so I am a little blue. We had dinner last night at a friend’s house, one of those awesome dinners filled with hours of good food and great conversation. Wound up staying much later than I thought […]

Aftermath

Tweet Meredith marching in! (Guy on the right is a total stranger.) The graduation was wonderful, simply wonderful. Bad weather forced the ceremony into the auditorium. Because of that, only Greg (Mer’s dad) and I were able to see the actual event. But because Hatboro-Horsham in awesome, they televised the ceremony live on a local […]
