I got home from work Wednesday evening, knowing the my dog would be delighted to see me. She had been cooped up in her kennel all day. I had left the radio on for her, for company.
When I walked in the door, I was greeted with a piteous round of howly singing from my Husky girl. She doesn’t usuall...Read more of this blog post »
Not every book is for every reader. There are many novels out there that don’t work for me, even well-written novels that are broadly praised. And yet, here I am respondingto an email from someone who is very dissatisfied withThe Gilded Hour:

Wow, where to begin. The horrible plan to destroy the life of popular crime author Jasper Ulrickson is conceived by a desperate fellow named Dez, who is more or less hiding out in upstate Vermont with Chloe, his barely legal young girlfriend, after... Read more of this blog post »
Since I’ve been commissioning new packages for my historical romances, I thought it was time to ask your opinion about covers and images. Here we go!Take Our Poll
What I like about this city is the combination of sophisticated buildings, low-key green spaces, and people who enjoy simple things such as walking to market or growing their own fruit and vegetables. It has a distinct Southen feel, relaxed, full of green corners offering a respite from an urban... Read more of this blog post »
One of the joys of writing is that it lends me the ability to create my own characters and make them do whatever I want. For instance, I could create a character called kevin that looks like this:

With dreams of writing for the big screen myself, I took note of this post and I’ve got to agree with Mr. Toy here. A good movie is a good movie is a good movie, no matter the genre. Looking forward to seeing this one.
A while back I wrote a love letter to Pixar Animation Studio...Read more of this blog post »
Dopo lunghi anni di fatica e sofferenze, oggi anche io sono stata coronata con l’alloro!
Il mio elaborato finale sul mercato editoriale e gli ebook (secondo voi potevano mancare i libri? Assolutamente no, neanche in questa occasione) è stato molto apprezzato dalla commissione, la qual cosa mi ha r...

“You must go and find them,” the famous engineer once said.
He was talking about problems in a business, not imaginary characters. Yet the ideais the same. Nothing much happens when a leader sequesters himself or herself in an office, sending emails, and wai...Read more of this blog post »

Whenever I vlog in my bathroom or shower, I get comments in the video saying 'oh she forgot to hide the femfresh' or 'spot the femfresh', and I feel like it really shouldn't be something people feel the need to hide or be shy about because taking care of your sk...Read more of this blog post »

I suspect after sixteen years together, it's too late to overcome the emotional gaps between Felix and the other two. Despite his name, he's often sad or angry, and dissensions arise that seem to be 'Felix's fault' but actually g... Read more of this blog post »
Week in Review
I’m sitting at my desk surrounded by paperwork, markers, my Daybook, a cup of black rose tea, social work study guides, and a rose-scented candle while a cat naps on my lap and two pugs snore nearby.

When I was very young, my brother and I used to clamor for our dad to take us to this long grassy strip beside the railway tracks in Smithers so “we” could run. What we actually wanted was for him to run, while we chased after him. We were awed by his speed and would exhaust ourselves trying and...Read more of this blog post »

Take a look at this picture. No, really. Take a good long look at it.
You probably want to laugh at it, and that’s okay. I do, too. Because, let’s be honest, it’s crap.
But here’s the thing. It’s my fault that it’s crap. Not my cover artist’s. Not only was that atrocity of three different typeface...Read more of this blog post »
I finally arrived at the hotel! What a beautiful site with its blue hue and the tower. I’m a fan of architecture so I enjoy a nicely conceived building. Being up on the 24th floor was fantastic, the view taking in so much of DC from my window. I hadn’t realized I wouldn’t be in DC but really in V...Read more of this blog post »
Bacon’s essay Of Travel is loaded with excellent, if sometimes difficultto follow, advice. I don’t know about you, but the embassies of most of the countries I’ve visited don’t tend to encourage casual visitors hanging about their conference rooms.

In the summer of 2015, a Vietnamese production company asked me if I would be the main character on a new TV show. My own TV show? This was a dream come true!
The show’s name is “Funny English Class”, or “Lợp Tiếng Anh Vui Vẻ". It’s show aimed at children ages 4-8. Since accepting the gig, I’ve r... Read more of this blog post »

I’ve been in a mood of late. It’s a flat, stale mood with punctuating stabs of blergh. A lot of this has to do with crap in life but a lot of it is really just my brain not wanting to turn over. Like a bad starter in a beat-up car.
Someone I kinda know asked me why I write. Not how or what but why...Read more of this blog post »
Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I thought the book was charming. Daniel's strong feelings for Sky were adorable, buuuuuuuut the book would have been 20% cooler without all the cussing. I really did not like the swearing. It was distracting, and completely unnecessary... Read more of this blog post »

If you aren’t reading Colleen Landry’s blog, ask yourself why not. Actually, don’t ask yourself, because that’s silly. You’ll start arguing with yourself and that can’t end well. Just click over and read Colleen’s blog about getting hit by a car. Yeah, she makes getting hit by a car funny.

Once upon a time, in another life, I was a DJ. Music has always been a huge part of my world; I can’t really work without it.
