    Am so grateful for being here amongst so many wonderful friends and family, to have the love of my husband and my children and I’m looking forward to a fantastic year ahead. I’m happy about having my 2nd book released with Seduction’s Canvas. I’m not looking for much by the way of gifts this year, except I’m just asking all my friends to tell as friend about Seduction’s Canvas and Samara and Mark.  As a new author, spreading the word is all I want to do.

    Besides spreading the word about Seduction, today I’ll be kicking up my heels as I try and pretend all the things I eat for the day are calorie free because they ARE since it’s MY BIRTHDAY!!! Then it’s onto writing my next book. You know me, I never stop plotting.

    But no fear,  It’s not all work. Since it’s MY BIRTHDAY I’m going to also dance. Starting with an oldie but a goodie hard rock (just like me) from Neneh Cherry!  Please join me in rocking it out 80’s style! Cause you know, I never progressed all that far past ’89.

    All the best,

    Wednesday High Tide Flashback

    This Wednesday it looks like we’re flashing back to just a couple of weeks ago and yet another coming rain/snow/wind/ oh to the noes! storm. So it’s time to gather the wood and charge up all the chargeables because in my neck of the woods once the winds get high you never know what could happen. I tell you Sandy shook me and good.


    Here’s to hoping it’s all smooth sailing and low tide where you are. Since I’ve been singing this one since yesterday, (well, since 7th grade really) I thought I’d pass it on to you now. Take us out Blondie. Enjoy.

    Starting with Why?

    my book 2 deadline and feeling like a real gah! “author, author.” I was near tears though, happy ones after practically gutting my poor brooding hero. You see for some reason I found it necessary to put the man quite through it and I was so happy for it. A hot ready to pull my hair out over the emotional changes that I had made mess, but in the end happy because I knew the story would be the better for it. Because you see for me, a good romance is all about the character’s emotional journey.

    But then, not long after in some sort of divine conformation, my son came to me all excited about this TEDx video that he saw and wanted to share with me about Why and succeeding in the work that you do and how that can transfer into consumers believing in you and your message. I’d like to share it with you today. And leave you with the question: Is your Why lined up with your What?


    All the best,
