No More Excuses

Well, I’ve put it off long enough. I’ve been up since 4:30, and in that time, I’ve done the dishes and the laundry. I’ve had breakfast and a second cup of coffee. I’ve even shed my dresser drawers of winter sweaters and packed them away for next year. I’ve answered e-mails, watered my plants, and vacuumed. I’ve…

“The Funk”

We’ve all been there. The place even non-creative people fall into from time to time: The Funk.  The place where things feel sluggish and uninspired. Like a car stuck in neutral. You want to go forward, but your gears seem to be stuck. It drains me of the desire to be creative and I hate…

When a couch is more than a couch.

I did something wild and crazy this week. I bought a couch. That may not seem like that big of an event to blog about, but it was cathartic for me. Let me explain. No there is too much, let me sum up. (A million points if you get that reference) A few years ago…

When the curtain goes down…

If you have ever done a play before, you will likely remember the days following the last curtain as either a time of great relief (if the show was a horrible experience) or one of great sorrow (reserved for those shows that really spoke to you.) My last curtain fell on Sunday and still, my…

The Show Must Go On…

For those who live in the New England area, you know that we are living under two plus feet of snow (with another 6-10 inches coming tomorrow). Yeah. That’s the end of a shovel just barely sticking out of the snow bank. It’s snowmageddon here, which, as a Mainer, I’m used to. We have shovels,…

How it all begins…

I thought it might be fun to share the first chapter of my latest release. It gives you a taste of the voice of the book. 🙂 Because WordPress doesn’t seem to believe in the tab button and aligns everything to the left (which is super annoying if you’re reading a book.) Therefore, I made…

“Morgan”

Last week I introduced you to Doppelganger’s main character, Julie. Today we meet her famous look-a-like, actress, Morgan Malone. If you read last week’s post What’s in a name? then you’ll remember that I based the looks of the main character on my own friend, author Julie Cassar. So for Morgan, I asked my friend what…

What’s in a name?

“Where do you come up with the names for your books?” That’s a question I get a lot. Honestly, if a name doesn’t just come to me, I grab this: I flip open a random page, close my eyes and point. Somewhere along that area will be the name I pick. Obviously, sometimes the name…

Drum Roll, please…

For the last few days, I have been teasing people on my facebook pages about my latest release. Taking off a layer of tape each day as we got closer. Today you get the full reveal: The cover, the Title and the Release Date! Woot! Woot! …. SHOW ME THE COVER! ….TA-DA! DOPPELGANGER! That’s the title!…

New Years Resolutions I won’t be making this year

Well, it’s that time of year again, where we as a human race sit back and take stock of all of the things wrong about ourselves and vow, THIS year, to finally fix it. Except, I’m not doing it this year. I’m putting my food down.

New to KU!

Just a quick note to let readers know that I’ve decided to place The ABC’s of Dee into Kindle Unlimited for three months. If you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription, that means you can now read it for FREE! If you don’t have Kindle Unlimited (KU), not to worry! You can still purchase a copy from…
