Sometimes I look at a person (literally and figuratively) and wonder just what the ever lovin’ fuck they are thinking. Today it was a figurative look. An unexpected friend request on Facebook waited for me this morning when I logged on. It was from someone I haven’t spoken to in over 12 years. It was […]

friday 5: the work of the child

My mother was a voice major in college before deciding to be an English teacher. And my grandmother was a music teacher. […]

friday 5: wolf!

play along here 1. When are you the tortoise, and when are you the hare? I am usually more tortoise than hare when it comes to writing. But I’m a hare a lot of the time because I’m the queen of multitasking. 2. When are you the grasshopper, and when are you the ants? I’m always the […]

friday 5: the week that was

play along here 1. What did you do too much of this week? Work. I’ve had back-to-back manuscripts to edit, long books with short suspenses. Plus, I’m working on another novel of my own, so it’s been all about time management. 2. What did you not do enough of this week? Read. But that’s, at […]

Fuck Texas

Fuck Texas

Let me preface this… I’m solidly pro-choice. Solidly. I don’t judge you if you don’t want abortions, and I don’t judge if you choose to have one. I 100% support YOUR CHOICE!
