April Fool’s Pranks

Happy April Fool's Day! I'm not much of a prankster these days, but when I was younger, my stepfather and I used to try to sneak up and surprise the other. I'll admit, he won the best "scare" attack of our ongoing battle. One school night in the early-mid 80s, my mom...

When the Dream Doesn’t Come True

If you're an avid romance reader, you've probably heard about the Romance Writers of America's annual RITA® awards competition. Essentially, thousands of romance novels are submitted and judged by multiple, random members (typically 5-7 judges per book, I believe). If...

Holiday Shopping vs. Holiday Spirit

You've heard it all before, right? Complaints about retailers who put up Christmas decorations by Halloween, the commercialization of a religious holiday, and the stress and exhaustion (and emptied checkbook) caused by hunting down "the perfect" holiday gifts. I'm not...

It’s all in how you choose to view it

November didn't turn out anything like I'd planned. I thought we'd have our first female President--but I was wrong. I thought I'd conquer National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and get 50,000 new words written in my current work in progress--but I was wrong. I...
