A Lovely Day in Richmond

A Lovely Day in Richmond

Months and months and months ago, I received a lovely invitation from the Virginia Romance Writers chapter of RWA, asking me to speak at their monthly meeting. I made sure I had no conflicts, entered the date on my calendar, prepared some handouts specifically for the meeting… and promptly forgot all about it. Which was fine. Because my calendar worked exactly as it was supposed to, and I saw the meeting a couple of weeks before the...

Field Trip!

The life of an author is often lonely–we work in private, staring at computer screens, occasionally “socializing” by way of electronic media. And then there are the field trips.

Weekend? What Weekend?

It seems like years since I posted here — it’s only been five days, but things have been a bit crazy, and I’ve been consistently sleep-deprived for a couple of weeks.  Why?  Well you probably all know that I married into Red Sox fandom.  And The Stations That Be insist on broadcasting baseball post-season games with start times after 8:00.  It’s enough to make me move to the Midwest… But in between the baseball...
