Girlie Wisdom!

Happy Hump DAY!!!! Today I wanted to give you a little smile on your face while I'm working away on my edits for the next novel in the Grandberry Falls series, HAPPY NEW LIFE!


Girlie Wisdom!
1. A friend of mine confused her Valium with her birth control pills… She has 14 kids but doesn’t really care.
2. One of life’s mysteries is how a 2-pound box of chocolates can make a woman gain 5 lbs.

3. My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.

4. The best way to forget your troubles is to wear tight shoes.

5. The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you are doing, someone else does.

6. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends.

7. Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today…

8. Sometimes I think I understand everything, and then I regain consciousness.

9. I gave up jogging for my health when my thighs kept rubbing together and setting fire to my underwear…

10. Am…

#Sample Sunday The Ladybug Jinx

In honor of the second book in my Grandberry Falls series, HAPPY NEW LIFE, I'm going to give you a little sample of my first novel in the series, THE LADYBUG JINX.



“If you have two pennies, spend one on breadand one on a flower. The bread will give youlife and the flower will give you a reason to live.”Chinese Proverb1Celia stood on the cobblestone walkway looking at the name, ever so elegantly painted over the bay window in beautiful cursive writing: The Ladybug Florist.“Will that be all?” the painter asked, poking his head out of the doorway. She followed him inside and admired the Chinese proverb he’d painted over the cash register. “You do fine work,” she said. She was pleased with the details. Except for one thing. “Before you go, can you make the dot on the ‘I’ in Florist a ladybug?” Celia asked.It’s all about the details to Celia, all the way down to placing a ladybug sticker in each arrangement, in the right spot. The painter didn’t question her. He set his ladder up behind…

Advantages Of A Small Town

I grew up in a small town, and like most I couldn't wait to get out and explore the vast world. Only....the vast world was only two hours from my
small town to the city of Cincinnati, Ohio. and trust me Cincinnati, although I love it, isn't the vast world.

The older I got I became to appreciate the small town and what it meant to me. I realized moving to a larger city life has become very busy, hustle and bustle, smog, violence, you know.


When I decided to become a writer, well~I've always been a writer, but when I decided to write for publication, I knew I wanted to base a series around a small town and the people in it.

Let's take a look at what you will find in a small town. First you will notice there isn't any traffic, only a few straggling cars. But people! The people are walking around the town with little fear of safety. So much so you can almost feel it. They say hello to you and give you eye contact. They ask about your family, and invite you over to pick som…

#Sample Sunday Splitsville.com

One
“Is Brittany there?” I question the quiet voice who answers my call. The quiet voice whose heart is about to get run over by a Mac truck. A Mac truck driven by me.
“Yes, this is her.” Brittany confirms while I’m uploading her picture sent to me by Terry, her soon to be ex-boyfriend.
“I’m Jenn from Splitsville.com,” I say going into my spiel, “and I’m calling on behalf of Terry who wants to break up with you.”
Brittany’s picture pops up on the screen. My heart bleeds for the smiling twenty something year old gal staring back at me. Her straight red hair is cut in a blunt bob, not a strand out of place. Glistening white teeth come off whiter up against her perfectly belted black cardigan.
Let me backtrack a minute. Splitsville.com started a couple of years ago when a friend wanted to dump her boyfriend. She was a big chicken, so I did it for her. Called his ass up, broke the news and Splitsville.com was born.
Here’s how it works. Clients contact me through the online form where they give…

New Fall Line Up

Over the past couple of years there hasn't been a lot of television shows that have really kept my attention (other than BIG BROTHER *shout out to Mary Godschalk and Stephanie Overton!)

This year seems different! There is a lot of commercials for new television shows with a good mix of genres.

YES! I have to say that I'm very excited about the new CHARLIE'S ANGELS!

It airs this Thursday on ABC. Since I'm deep into writing the second novel in the Olivia Davis series, I'm excited to see what the angels do to solve the crimes. I'm hoping to steal a few ideas.

On September 18, also on ABC, is the series premiere of Suburgatory.
A single father moves his carefree teenage daughter to the suburbs from the city. The previous look so fun and quirky and since I'm the queen of quirky, I'm definitely going to be giving this one a try.


BUT.....

I have to admit that I'm most excited about WHITNEY!!!
OMG!! I'm falling on the floor laughing at these promos!
