Every spring I participate as a judge for local Speech competitions in Minnesota.

That became Deeper Than Dreams, the novella that bridges Louder Than Love with the next book in the series, Softer Than Steel. And I am happy to say the price-dropping fai...

Some men came and delivered our new sofa last week, making for arguably the worst possible use of annual leave. One of the men was balding with a tattooed neck. Over the last few months, I have come across a disproportionate amount of men who have neck tattoos. I’m not one to judge but what happe... Read more of this blog post »

Believe it or not there was a time when I was young and innocent. The world can be a very mysterious and confusing place for a child, especially when adults do such a poor job of explaining things.

Christine Feehan Christine Feehan's blog:
Yes, there’s sex in my books. Some of the books have more than others. Some have sex that’s more erotic than others. I write romance. And, frankly, I think there’s nothing wrong with sex. It’s a part of nature. It’s human. It’s a way to express how you feel for someone. Or a way to show them that... Read more of this blog post »

How do we really know what to believe? This summarizes The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson well.

I have to say I don’t usually like reads that focus on a religious belief system, but I’m glad I stayed the course because this is a well written series.
