I'm on Goodreads as an author and a reader. I love reading printed books, but enjoy using my Kindle for late night reading.

When Marguerite Ashton was in her twenties, she took up acting, but soon realized she preferred to work behind the camera, writing crime fiction. A few years later, she married an IT Geek and settled down with her role as wife, mom, and writer. Five kids later, she founded the Crime Writer’s Panel and began working with former law enforcement investigators to create; Criminal Lines Blog, an online library for crime writers who need help with their book research.

She’s a workaholic who hides in her writer’s attic, plotting out her next book and stalking Pinterest for the next avocado recipe.

Thursday Thoughts: A Water Bottle For my Fur Baby

It was nice to find a water bottle for my fur baby that I could use for traveling. Or for a time like now, when she’s not feeling so well. She has been under me and hasn’t wanted to follow her usual eating/drinking routine.


I’m looking forward to when she feels better. Until then, this water bottle has done wonders to make sure she’s getting plenty of water!


Do you use a water bottle for your dog? I
