I talk to my critique group and I try not to push myself. The answer comes to me out of the blue. When I'm looking for a plot, I read and watch movies, both old and new.(less)

Valentine’s Day!!!

I admit it, I’m a holiday whore. I pretty much love celebrating, even on days just randomly labeled. Like National Chocolate Day. Valentines Day is even better. It’s about relationships we value! What could be better? I think we’ve just loaded it up(as we humans do) with a weight of often-sad and difficult meaning. I […]

“Mrs. Latham patted Hayley's knee with a frail, liver-spotted hand. ''I'm sure you do, dear. And I'm afraid those kinds of losses don't get any easier as we grow older." Mrs. Latham turned, including Colton in her smile as she changed the subject. ''I'm so thrilled to finally be able to restore Victorian Oaks. It's been my dream for some time." "I understand you grew up there," Colt said. "Yes, indeed. I was a Palmer before I married Mr. Latham. It pains me to see the old house going to ruin.”

“Hayley Haslett raised her hand and tapped on the door.”
Carol Rose, Challenge Accepted

“Mrs. Latham, president of the Victorian Oaks Preservation Society, hadn't said much about the nature of this meeting when she'd called a week ago. And Hayley hadn't even thought to ask, she'd been so overjoyed that the proposal from her tiny restoration firm had made the short list. Even with the size of the project-nine separate houses to fully restore-she knew she could do it. She wouldn't be alone. In the projects she'd tackled so far, Hayley had found a reliable group of subcontractors that didn't mind working for an untried woman, young enough to be a daughter to some of them. What she lacked in experience, she hoped she made up for in passion for the work and an ardent commitment to historical accuracy. But what did Mrs. Latham hope to accomplish in meeting with both her and her only competitor together? For an instant, Hayley wished she'd bought herself a briefcase. Still, with her delicate features and flyaway straight, looking businesslike was just a dream. The door opened, revealing an immaculately uniformed maid.”
