One Week; Two Novels in REVIEW.

The lazy days of summer mingled with lingering pandemic social distancing means I have more time available for reading, and I’ve been taking advantage of it. This last week I finished two stories, both page turners, but only one left me hankering for more. Click on the images below to read each review, and find …

Puppy and a Promise

In a recent Facebook post, I mentioned listening to Reba McEntire songs, and I promised an explanation. Well… In 3-4 weeks, Hubs and I will be traveling to Alberta to collect our new family member. She’s an English Pointer, and though we haven’t determined yet which one of the six female puppies born into a …

A Research Hook

I think I’ve mentioned before that one of the things I enjoy most about writing historical romance–besides the writing–is the research. Like Alice, I tumble down a rabbit hole, and stumble upon some truly wondrous things, like this piece I discovered on my foray into London’s 18th century Vauxhall Pleasure Garden … Enjoy my friends. …

Perfectly You

There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now, which means there’s enough anxiety to go around, and then some. So I just want to take a moment to remind you, dear friends (as I must remind myself daily), that normal is what you make it. And nothing–and no one–is perfect. If you’re …

Escape Through Historical Romance

Feeling antsy under the mandatory stay-home orders? Me, too, which is funny, because as a writer, staying home is literally what I do ninety-percent of the time. In fact, prior to this pandemic, I often texted Hubs to grab groceries or necessaries on his way home from work, just so I wouldn’t have to go …

A Covid-19 Degree More Difficult

I lost a step yesterday. Monday, I woke up with more energy than I had in months since taking on MIL’s fulltime care. I got out for a run, I bought a coffee, and I savoured the sunshine and budding trees as I power walked home. Tuesday, my cat died, for all intent and purpose, …

Carpe Diem

This week came news from our Provincial government that strict Covid-19 social distancing measures may remain in place through the summer, and I just shrugged. Our sons’ University Convocation, and celebratory family BBQ, is scheduled for mid-June. Hubs and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in August; we booked a family trip to see Garth …
