The Deconstructing of Tracy has begun. I found the perfect piece of artwork for the cover in a folder of my own childhood artwork. Yeah, I drew that. The sad part is that if I drew it today it'd look pretty much the same. I am woefully untalented. The book is a darkly humorous look … Continue reading Cover Art – Deconstructing Tracy
Ever have those morning when you wake up and ask yourself, "So, what's next?" Especially when you just finish up a project you've been working on for a while? Just last week I finished up the second novel in the Cast Down series. There are two others in the series in the works right now. … Continue reading Deconstructing Tracy
Sometimes I post our available homes on Facebook groups, like, "Homes for Rent/Sale in Whatever County". Sometimes. I would probably do it more often except that nearly every time I post, some random former tenant will start tearing up the thread, accusing the company of having evicted them for absolutely no reason.

Take out your camera or phone and take some pictures of the empty home. Smell the empty home. Does it smell clean and fresh? Take off your shoes … Continue reading It Ain’t Winnie the Pooh!
Some days I get to work from home. Those are the best days of all. I can get comfy on my couch with my computer and my phone. The phone is used for texting and emails only. I despise talking on the phone. Some days I'm in a neat, clean office. Well, okay, it's really … Continue reading Chapter 6 – Masks and Gloves are for Losers!
This is from one of my latest projects - a non fiction novel called Deconstructing Tracy. They say it's not the age but the mileage that counts. I can't believe I've been on this road for so long. If I were a car I'd be an antique by now and I don't know when that … Continue reading Grace Changes Everything
These days, the terms Fifty Shades of Grey just means that it's time to color my hair again. Fifty. Fifty. Forty-nine... Fifty. Really? Me? How did this happen? I swear, I was 23 just yesterday. And now I'm 50. I got a birthday card in the mail from AARP... and I joined. I almost feel … Continue reading Fifty Shade of Gray… Hair…
I really wish Microsoft would come up with a way for people to click the above picture and have the smell waft out of the speakers. The aroma that went with this one was truly something remarkable.
