Where’s the Romance?!

My husband and I are going through a pretty stressful time. He’s just retired from the Air Force, took a new job in a different state, and is leaving this Sunday to go down there and start work while our kiddos and I stay behind to finish school and sell our home. All with a looming deadline on a story coming due, fixing the house up to get it ready to go on the [...]

Is Handsome Too Handsome?

I was looking out my kitchen window one morning and noticed a rather plain looking bird eating the berries on the bush outside. It was a cardinal. I had to study it to figure out what it was because cardinals are red ALL over, aren't they? The males are. Maybe I should have paid more attention in science class. 😉 Anyway, that got me to thinking about other animals where the male is decked [...]

Looking for Love in All the Right Places

Okay, so there really aren’t many wrong places to look for love. Not in my scenario, anyways. Because I’m not looking for love for myself. I’m looking for love for my readers, or specifically, love stories for my readers. As long as I can remember, I've been soaking up love stories wherever I've come across them. Whether the romance was there in the original story or not, I'd spin it anew, in lace and [...]
