Tick, Tock, Countdown...
It's almost time! Although the 'official' start of our NaNoRevMo is next Monday, let's go through a few last minute things. You'll need to revise/reread your manuscript several times but don't expect to do it multiple times in this month (only if you're o...

Sweeping Out, Welcoming In...
With the New Year just about here, I like to declutter and downsize. And not just broken Christmas ornaments, old toys, clothes that don't fit. I go deeper. This is what I'm doing now: Reconnecting with an old high school friend. Letting go of a dead friend...

Oh, That Novel's Not Finished...
Before we start the great NaNoRevMo in February, (NaNoWriMo org does their revision program in the summer- I don't want to wait that long so if February doesn't work for you, do theirs in the summer), please read the sign. Rejection is important. Painful, y...

Story
Introduction
I imagine squirrels taking over the world, love guacamole, struggle to outwit my sons, and try to avoid nano-bots who are conspiring to ruin every piece of technology I touch and make me feel stupid. Yes, I'm a writer and in my world, improbabilities are very likely.
Bragging rights
Have three sons who will support me in my old age, a husband who has to tolerate my whacko-ness, and 3 (so far) books pubbed: Blonde OPS (6/2014, Thos Dunne/St Martin) and the Sirenz series: Sirenz and Sirenz Back In Fashion (Flux). I'm hoping some of my solo books will be snatched up by brilliant publishers also. Keep watching...
