Conference For A Cause

I love going to conference where readers are the center of the conference. I'm always on the look out for them, but recently I had been contacted by another author who is doing something a little different. She is hosting a Toys For Tots Christmas Reader Conference.

Maggie vs Tonya

Tonya Kappes: It’s funny. Vinnie is a 1965 muscle car that is so jealous of Maggie’s suitors, including Mick Jasper the undercover agent for SKUL, the Secret Keepers of the Universal …

Caught me by surprise!

There is something I discovered about myself and it actually took me by surprise.  Over the last eight years I've had two offices. The first one was in our old house and it was a living room that we never used. My Eddy had converted it to an office and even had custom built shelves put in along with a chalkboard and a very cool barn door.  It was beautiful. Only one problem...I never used it! I kept my stuff in there but I ended up writing my novels while sitting in an overstuffed chair or in the corner of my comfy couch.  Four years ago we moved to a new house. There was a great office on the first floor as soon as you walked into the house. I painted it, bought a new desk, a new chair, rug, curtains, and hung up my accomplishments. It was a cool office. One problem. . .I never used it.  I  ended up doing a Feng shui of my home and added all that I needed to add to make the office more creative for me. I repainted, re-arranged, redecorated and all was beautiful. One problem. . .…
