Manuscript Playlists

All right. So, have you ever had it were you’re working on one WIP, but you have three other concepts just begging for your attention? I mean, it’s like having three kids tugging at your sleeves, trying to drag you in totally different directions.

Old Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts

Last Wednesday, my friend Marcie (2 Read Or Not 2 Read) and I were tweeting about historical research when she mentioned ~ “I love books but going to historical sites is so much fun!!!

Cabin Fever

I usually love a rainy day. It's a perfect time to write and read. However, today will be the third day straight and I'm starting to get cabin fever. Don't worry, I won't be breaking into song and dance any time soon - I'll let the Muppets do that. LOL. I have to admit the weather has … Continue reading Cabin Fever

Ketch’s Sketches: Afternoon Inspiration

If the above sketch looks familiar, you might have seen the pose in your grocery store. I’m not one to read fashion magazines, but when I saw the model on the cover my jaw dropped.

Valentine Playlist

Valentine's Day is almost here! A time for romance, flowers, and chocolate. I remember in Castle (ABC) one of the questions they ask was: "When do you know you're in love?" The answer was "When all the songs make sense." So, I know this is just a quick post, but I thought I share some … Continue reading Valentine Playlist

Where Do You Write?

Today’s Meet an Author Monday has a special theme: “Where you write”. The photo to the left is my colonial style – Adams office – desk, one of many places I write.

Book series come in many sizes. Nobody’s Princess is a series of two books. Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon has three. Harry Potter consists of seven novels.
