COOKING FOR GHOSTS and SPELLS & OREGANO, which are books I and II in my trilogy of magical realism novels set aboard the RMS QUEEN MARY are currently available. It's been a blast doing research about this magnificent historic ship,, meeting so many ship aficionados who love the ship, and writing the stories. I have come to truly love the characters and the ship, and I know I'll be sad when I finish the trilogy.(less)

About Veterans Day

  This week we commemorate Veterans Day, and I am always torn on this day. A human being willing to die for what he or she believes should always be admired, and in the case of those who’ve fought in wars, thanked. But I can’t post trite salutations or memes about veterans. I can’t behave […]

“The only thing you should be faking is confidence. If you don't have it yet, pretend that you do. Pretend you're not nervous, pretend you're not scared, and after a while, the pretend part disappears.”
Patricia V. Davis, The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know

“If I had a daughter, here's what I'd tell her:

One day, when you've worked hard for what you want, when people see that you are confident and intelligent and that you recognize your own self-worth, when you take care of yourself, support yourself, and stand up for yourself, that is the day that the world will call you "a cruel and selfish bitch."

It's a tough title to earn and you should be and proud of it.”
Patricia V. Davis, The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know

“Become a parent. Lose your autonomy, but gain the wondrous superpower of The Magic Kiss that instantly dries tears and makes the pain of boo-boos disappear.”
Patricia V. Davis, Harlot's Sauce: A Memoir of Food, Family, Love, Loss, and Greece

“Coleridge was a drug addict. Poe was an alcoholic. Marlowe was killed by a man whom he was treacherously trying to stab. Pope took money to keep a woman's name out of a satire, then wrote a piece so that she could still be recognized, anyhow. Chatterton killed himself. Byron was accused of incest. Do you still want to a writer -and if so, why?”
Bennett Cerf

“Doubt gets a bad rap. Doubting doesn't mean you've stopped believing, but that you've started thinking. Sheep doubt nothing. Chances are you'll get further in life by questioning things than by living like something that ends up as dinner and a sweater.”
Amy Alkon, I See Rude People: One Woman's Battle to Beat Some Manners Into Impolite Society

“You should know me well enough by now to know I don't ask for things I don't think I can get.”
