Dessert

Posted Jul 19 2013 in , , , , , , ,

I rarely have dessert because I would probably weigh a thousand pounds if I ate it routinely. I love dessert, so I remove temptation. In the books of my O’Leary series, I’ve added a recipe that belongs to one of the characters. In MORE  THAN THIS (book #1), I made Comfort Cookies. To come up […]

School Uniforms

Posted Jan 22 2013 in , , , , , , ,

I spent my life in Catholic school. From first grade through senior year of high school, I wore ugly plaid skirts. Although I never liked them, they made life easy. I never had to think about what to wear. I didn’t have to worry about fitting in or wearing the right stuff. At the time, […]

I laughed when I saw this because in More Than This, Ryan gets irritated that Quinn puts him in the friend zone for a long time. Just when he things he breaks free of the friend zone, she shoves him back.

My daughter’s cheer squad made it to Nationals again this year, so I’m driving to Florida. My husband has work, so lucky him, he’s staying home. While I’m happy for my daughter and really proud of her, I hate this part.   What’s your least favorite part of travel?

Posted Nov 6 2012 in , , , , , ,

It’s that time of year again — NANOWRIMO, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. I’ve never participated in NANO mostly because I feel like I’d be setting myself up for failure. When doing NANO, you’re supposed to write 50,000 words in 30 days. For me, that’s a little over half a book. Is it […]

Fan Fiction

Posted Oct 31 2012 in , , , , ,

Okay, so I’m still digging out from deadline stuff. I managed to not only turn in page proofs for More Than This (early), but I also got book 2 safely in the hands of my editor (also a little early). And I accomplished this with a sick kid home from school all last week. Right […]

Caffeine Tolerance – Writers Under Deadline

Posted Oct 16 2012 in , , , , ,

I’m not a coffee drinker, but I really wish I was. If you notice on Dante’s peak (no pun or reference to the movie) you will find where I am in life. I do think he should’ve added in another –Enough for the demands of a writer under deadline–and inch that right above the children. […]
