In keeping with my post-Oscars tradition, I thought I’d do a quick post to wrap up last night’s festivities, and share some pictures from our annual spread of food puns. It was s different gathering than usual, since my long-time Oscar buddy Rob and his beautiful wife Tiffany were busy having their first evening home  […]

It’s Oscar Week! I am super excited. We managed to stream both Lady Bird and Get Out over the weekend. Both are wonderful in their own ways, with brilliant acting and directing. But I have to say that Get Out will be giving me chills for weeks. The alternate ending is worth watching, too, if  […]

There’s a spot on the couch with my name on it right now, y’all. The Olympics are here, AND the Oscars are coming! It’s funny, I’m not exactly a film nerd, and never have been. I know this, in part, because I dated a film nerd in college, and there’s no one who can help  […]

A couple of weeks ago on my Facebook page, we played Mad Libs with some excerpts from The Marriage Pact trilogy. It was a ton of fun, and I got to give away Distracted Reader mugs to a few randomly-selected readers who joined in. By coincidence, they all have names that start with “D.” Congratulations  […]

I’m putting together my 2018 Reading List on Goodreads! This year I am working on expanding my horizons and getting around to some books that have been on my TBR (to be read) pile for a while, waiting for me to get to them. These selections are in-process, of course, and reflect my desire to  […]

So, I’m not sure how this happened, because it was seriously July about 20 seconds ago, BUT… Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Y’all. Seriously. How is it possible? If you’re looking for a special way to say, “I know you like funny, romantic Women’s Fiction, and can also spell your name” to someone  […]

  If you are in the Atlanta area and hate mall shopping as much as I do, please join me and three amazing fellow authors on December 9th from 7:00 to 9:00 at Bookmiser in Roswell (Sandy Plains & 92). We’ll be signing our own books and recommending other favorites, to suit all the readers on  […]

(It’s already available for pre-order in some formats – just $1.99 – follow the link to grab yours!) What is a Novella? Novellas  […]
