An Almost Autumn Update

Well it’s almost autumn, and I can’t wait.  I love the fall: the pretty red, orange, yellow and brown leaves, the impending holidays with time spent with family, Cowboy’s games( also family time)–or nacho season, as my oldest calls it–, the State Fair (even more family time), and the cooler weather! Of course, it will […]

Wake up, you silly muse!

I, as many authors have, have had times when I’d sit down to write and the words just do not want to come. There are many distractions, like a sunny day outside your window (because who wouldn’t rather be outside playing?), family members talking, construction going on near by, or just plan ole procrastination. I […]

Jeffers vs. Alexa

In the last manuscript I turned into my editor, I drifted away from Regelence society and visited a highlander planet called Skye.  It made me conscious of just how much I missed Regelence society.  And…that got me thinking.  Would I really want to live in Regelence’s society?

Needless to say, they miss their tea. One of the first things they do is ask Bannon, whose ship crashed on the planet, if he has […]

Exercise and Writing

With all the talk of New Years resolutions, I got to thinking about exercising since that is such a common resolution people have. It is not mine, however; I already workout regularly. I’ve always exercised off and on, but since August of last year I’ve exercised consistently. In the past, I always had good intentions […]

Plagiarism

*This is an post from 2011 from my old blog, but the information is still good and I hope it may be some help to others, so I’ve included it in this blog. Plagiarism. It’s an ugly word and an ever uglier act. I know some of you are aware that I was plagiarized a […]

Regency Ristrictions

I love Regency romance and one day I will write a true Regency era romance, but I have become quite found of the freedom I have with Sci-Regency. I’ve talked before about how I ended up with the Sci-Regency because gay relationships were punishable by death at the time and I did not like the […]
