As an aspiring writer, I blog about whatever happens to move me at the moment -- though some posts contain serious content, my big-picture goal is to bring a little humor into an often humorless world! Welcome, y'all, and make yourself at home! Please make sure you update your bookmarks!

I haven't blogged in a long time...should get back into it...but here are my answers for the Facebook "things you don't know about me" game:
1. I have written 9 full-length novels and 3 "novellas" (but have not attempted to get published and probably won't -- writing is my therapy.

2. My favorite genre of books to read (but not write) is historical fiction -- namely (and in order): the Middle Ages, Colonial/Revolutionary America, Italian Renaissance and the French Revolution.

3. My favorite historical person is Richard III.

3. I would rather watch a program/movie with zombies, ghosts, headless horsemen, the Winchester Brothers and various gore than anything which doesn't contain some form of those.

4. I love dogs (this you know) but if I could have any "unusual" pet, it would be an elephant. Or maybe a capybara. Or a giraffe.

5. I gave birth at ages 25, 27 and 32. The smaller gap between the first two are why there is a bigger one between the third. (Love you all dearly, by the way).

6. I once had a MRI that showed (from more than one aspect -- and Mark saw it) what appeared to be a tumor but it was not there at all when I had surgery. Miracle? I'll take it.

7. I went all the way to New Jersey for one Men Without Hats concert. Another time I went to Jacksonville (not quite as far).  Missed the last tour because I was awaiting the birth of a grandson. Sometimes you do have to draw the line.

8. I am right-handed but am more comfortable doing some things with my left-hand (I have the mouse on my left, for instance). Mark is also right-handed but two out of three of our children are lefties.
