A Coastal Sprint

My husband and I escaped the scorching heat of Roseville for a far-too-short stay in Monterey this weekend. Have you been? Monterey, and its sister city Carmel, is beautiful.

Author on a Horse!

I came out of the womb disappointed to not find a horse saddled and waiting for me—or so it seems. I’ve been horse crazy my whole life. I played with My Little Ponies and Breyer horses and any number of knock-off brands I could get my hands on. I pretended I was a horse when… Continue Reading

The National Night Out event was low-key and geared to my neighbors—all 1,200 of them, though a MUCH smaller sampling showed up. As a moderately shy person, I couldn’t have asked for… Continue Reading

Tension, NaNo WriMo, and Guest Posting

NaNo WriMo is just around the corner. Are you ready? Over at Fictioners.net, Nick Hudson and his fans are gearing up for the month-long marathon of writing 50,000 words. (That’s 1,667 words daily, including Thanksgiving day, for those of you calculating.) Nick was kind enough to let me put my two cents in about conflict… Continue Reading
