Now that I finally finished the third Cast Down book I've thrown myself into working on three more books that were already in progress; a murder mystery involving a religious cult, the fourth Cast Down novel, and the darkly humorous riches to rags story of my life - Deconstructing Tracy. If you enjoy the blogs … Continue reading Deconstructing Tracy
Scatter My Ashes on Richard Dean Anderson
The law may not allow me to actually do that, but that's what my final wishes are. There, I said it. For the longest time I've assumed that Marty (my husband) would be the first to go. I mean, that's still the plan, but things don't always go according to plan. He is three years … Continue reading Scatter My Ashes on Richard Dean Anderson
“My Home is CLEAN!”
"They're lyin', your honor, my home is CLEAN!" Someone actually said that in eviction court. Under oath. https://youtu.be/3lr7D5lGR5k https://youtu.be/vJnIwf9FZNM https://youtu.be/mR1Jnl3BPJo The home was beautiful when they moved in. I will never understand how someone can choose to live like that. I'm amazed the HVAC worked at all with all the garbage stuffed down into the … Continue reading “My Home is CLEAN!”
Cover Art – Deconstructing Tracy
The Deconstructing of Tracy has begun. I found the perfect piece of artwork for the cover in a folder of my own childhood artwork. Yeah, I drew that. The sad part is that if I drew it today it'd look pretty much the same. I am woefully untalented. The book is a darkly humorous look … Continue reading Cover Art – Deconstructing Tracy
Ever have those morning when you wake up and ask yourself, "So, what's next?" Especially when you just finish up a project you've been working on for a while? Just last week I finished up the second novel in the Cast Down series. There are two others in the series in the works right now. … Continue reading Deconstructing Tracy
You May have been Evicted Because….
Sometimes I post our available homes on Facebook groups, like, "Homes for Rent/Sale in Whatever County". Sometimes. I would probably do it more often except that nearly every time I post, some random former tenant will start tearing up the thread, accusing the company of having evicted them for absolutely no reason. For no reason. … Continue reading You May have been Evicted Because….
Writers – Life in an Alternate Reality
Are you a writer? Is your daily reality a little... different? The other day my husband said to me that he noticed a home in our community looked abandoned. He takes our dog for a walk all around the park early every morning and he hadn't lately seen any cars there or activity. I started … Continue reading Writers – Life in an Alternate Reality
Words to Live By
For any of you who have been keeping up with my blog - you know what I face during my day. I go into battle with roaches and spitefully filled commodes. And that's on the good days. There are other slices of my life, though. One of the slices that's been getting bigger lately is the spiritual … Continue reading Words to Live By
It Ain’t Winnie the Pooh!
The next time you rent a home, I'd just like you to do something. It'll take just a few minutes, I promise. Walk into the empty home. Take out your camera or phone and take some pictures of the empty home. Smell the empty home. Does it smell clean and fresh? Take off your shoes … Continue reading It Ain’t Winnie the Pooh!
Chapter 6 – Masks and Gloves are for Losers!
Some days I get to work from home. Those are the best days of all. I can get comfy on my couch with my computer and my phone. The phone is used for texting and emails only. I despise talking on the phone. Some days I'm in a neat, clean office. Well, okay, it's really … Continue reading Chapter 6 – Masks and Gloves are for Losers!
