Smalltown, USA

I’ve been reading a lot of cozy mysteries lately and the one thing they all have in common is small towns. I love small towns. Not just reading about them, but being in them. There is just something about them that makes them well… cozy. I did not grow up in a small town, though […]

Christmas Time Again

I has been a while since I’ve posted. Sorry for the lack of updates, but sadly I have no news to update at the moment.  I should have some after the first of the year in regards to new releases. So what have I been doing? Enjoying the Christmas season of course. As most have […]

Tea Time Update

Awhile back I did a post about tea while working on the Sci-Regency series, you can read the original post here, and I thought I’d post an update. I recently acquired some PG Tips and some Yorkshire Gold imported from England. I can definitely say they are stronger than American brand teas and the PG […]

Daydreaming of Cookies

So I was sitting here thinking about dream jobs.  Number one was veterinarian, but number two was bakery owner.  Neither of those is probably surprising, but alas, obviously I have way too much time on my hands. So going along with my daydream, being a vet is out. The closest vet school is  A&M.  Can’t […]

Show Holes

Show Holes:  (definition from Urban Dictionary). When you finally finish binge-watching all the episodes of a favorite TV series on Netflix/Hulu/Amazon, as the credits to the final episode roll, that empty feeling that wraps around your soul because you don’t know now what to do with your life. Like a good friend just left you […]

Tea Time

In my current work in progress, two of the characters are native Regelans who have been abandoned on a different planet with a lot less technological advancements than Regelence. 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 […]

Christmas Traditions

I’ve been thinking a lot about culture and tradition lately because of the my work in progress. Specifically, I’ve been pondering how those things are changed and how they grow. Changes can come as a consequence of invasion, or expansion, out of necessity (such as women working when men went off to war), or from […]

Oh Christmas Trees

Yep, trees as in two. I didn’t actually put lights up earlier than I planned, I put them up the Monday before Thanksgiving, but I added another tree to the mix. We are now a two tree household, and I’m trying to figure out a way to justify adding more. You see, I needed another […]

Things I love about Christmas

One of the things I love Christmas is…DECORATIONS!  Yup, I’m one of those people. My kids have a running joke that by the time I’m 50 I’ll go straight from Halloween decorations to Christmas decorations. I admit they might be right, I seem to put Christmas decorations up earlier and earlier every year and leave […]
