Miserable Boss Inspires Great Writing!

My worst job was as a travel agent in Miami, FL. I was so bad, I’d hide behind my computer screen to keep from waiting on customers. Reflecting on my latest mystery, Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder and main character, Andi Anna Jones as my alter ego and equally pathetic travel agent, I asked some of …

Mom Hated Fudge!

Pan of fudge for two people! My mother hated fudge. She had a valid reason. When my dad retired, he entertained himself by making his homemade, Hershey’s Chocolate Fudge for the kids and grandkids. My sister-in-law, Sherri, and I would stand just inside the kitchen door, waiting for the moment Dad poured the gooey “magic” …

A Confession From the Author

A confession from the author: Andi Anna Jones, mediocre travel agent, with an inferiority complex about her job, her looks, and her single status, discovers her “inner sleuth” in Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder. Keeping with some excellent advice I got years ago, to “write what you know’, her character and job are loosely based on …

Mermaid-In-Waiting

I’m Pisces. Pisces, a water sign, is the last constellation of the zodiac. It's symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces's attention between fantasy and reality. As the final sign, Pisces has absorbed every lesson — the joys and the pains, the hopes and the fears — learned …

Visiting (and writing about) My Ancestors

I was a recent guest on the fabulous blog of author, Christine Verstraete. Christine is asking authors to write about their hobbies, beyond writing. While I love sports (I’m a tomboy from waaaaay back), swim, and play a little golf, my first love, after reading and writing of course, is genealogy. Family Search has become …

International Chocolate Day!

It's still hard to believe that something I love, SO MUCH, is actually good for me! I'd eat chocolate on just about anything! Well, maybe not hamburgers or strip steak or grilled chicken...but just about everything else! Not only that, I found out my second love, coffee, will increase my life span. Or, is it …

To Dye, Or Not to Dye…That is the Question.

  This is a question I've asked myself for more than twenty years. It was 1999. We lived in South River, NJ. Every evening we'd take our little rescue terrier, Molly, for a walk around the block. Sometimes down to the park and into town. But, I digress. During this one particular stroll, the sun …
