Writing, writing, breakfast in the Antique Dining Room, writing, writing, writing, check out at eleven. Wooee, baby! Let’s hope I’ll be reporting some good word counts when I finally get online this afternoon.

It’s Saturday. I’ll be writing almost all day today. I created this post Thursday night because I’ll be offline until Sunday evening. I’ll be catching up on e-mail and blogs next week. Enjoy your weekend.
This afternoon I’ll check in for the Northern Colorado Writers‘ Retreat at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch near Loveland, Colorado. There are only six of us (all female) attending this year, so instead of rooming in the big Wagon Wheel Bunkhouse facility, we’ll be sharing two cabins. Each of us has our own room for sleeping …Read More
What I’m Reading: Same as last week. I hated to leave Matt Hilton’s Dead Men’s Dust at home but it’s a hardcover and we were traveling light. Can’t wait to get back to it. Have also not finished the two non-fiction books on writing. I suspect I won’t finish any of these books until next …Read More
I had the best afternoon imaginable yesterday. I did nothing except play with my six-month-old granddaughter and tag along on a long stroll around a small lake called Jamaica Pond with my hubby and our daughter and baby Talia.

Megan had been scheduled for the hours just prior to our appearance. When we heard the announcements, and realized there was another author in the store, we hurried …Read More
Don’t Cricket McRae and I look as though we’re having fun? Thanks to the great staff at Old Firehouse Books in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado, that’s exactly what we did yesterday from noon to three. We talked to dozens of readers, passed out bookmarks and shared our tray of sweet treats from Fiona’s Deli …Read More
I’m signing books at noon today with mystery author Cricket McRae at Old Firehouse Books in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado. If you’re in the neighborhood, please drop by. We’ll have a big tray of those delicious mini-treats from Fiona’s Deli (lemon bars, brownies, etc.). And, of course, my usual bowl of chocolate treats, including …Read More
I have author friends who still won’t explore Twitter world because they’re convinced the social site will be a time suck and will not provide a direct benefit such as drastically increased blog traffic or book sales. I don’t blame them a bit. Twitter can be addictive. It takes a long time to build the …Read More
