Spring Brings Changes and Growth-Spurts

Every group, if it’s around long enough, goes through growth spurts and changes. Our group has certainly done that over its years of existence. We began in 2015 as the Sisters of Suspense. (Can’t believe it was that long ago!) Life changes caused some authors to leave, and others joined us, and we became Sisterhood…

Mandala Messages

First, let me apologize for missing my scheduled date to post on this blog. My calendar shows, Tuesday, February 16. It took me a minutes to figure out how I missed it. Well, on Monday afternoon, my husband, Charley (our Jack Russel/Chuahuahua mix) moved in with one of my daughters. We did that because of…

Facebook GIVEAWAY Today

Today, I’m taking part in a Facebook Party (Facebook has nothing to do with the GIVEAWAY.) celebrating the release of Abbie Roads latest book CAPTURING FATE. Abbie has an unusual way of hyping her book. She asks other authors to participate in a giant Giveaway. In doing that, we get to talk about one of…

Goodbye 2020

I guess about now I’m getting a lot of “Amens” and “Thank Heavens” out there to my title. While I”m sure we can look back and find some good things–I published my 8th romantic suspense book, we have stayed healthy, and have family and friends near–even still this year has been one of loss, sorrow,…

Happy Thanksgiving in the US

Our Canadian friends have already celebrated this holiday. Anyone who has followed me for any time at all, knows that I love Fall. It’s my favorite season and Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. For oh so many reasons: *In Texas we have much improved weather over our beastly hot summers. *We don’t have fall leaves…

Finding Inspiration

Last Friday I went out for my second daily walk in the neighborhood. The first one took place after lunch rather than around 7:30 am. We had a fall storm blow through with high winds, humongous lightning, much needed rain, and a major drop in temps that morning. All welcome. I was struck with how…

REASONS TO CELEBRATE

In these troubling, confusing, and sometimes scary times, it’s important to find reasons to celebrate. My husband (a reason to celebrate) and I walk Charley every morning that it’s not raining. Occasionally, we are delighted to spy a deer or two. When this happenes, we call that, “a very deery morning.” On these walks, I…

The Last Days of Summer

I’m sure some of you and/or your kids have already returned to school in whatever fashion that takes this fall. I’m sending positive thoughts of safety, energy, and joy to you as you take on this mammoth and vital task of education. In today’s environment, I’m grateful to no longer work on the front lines….

New Beginnings

The picture below is one I found many years ago when I was letting go of something that meant a lot to me. Something I really didn’t want to let go of. One day I was walking in the mall and went into this really cool little store that was filled with plaques, pictures, posters,…

WORD BY WORD #1

Hopefully, you’ve read the last post on the Sisterhood of Suspense blog by Kathryn Jane, called Change.

One we hope you will continue to follow as we strive to be positive, uplifting, and encouraging in trying times. Truth be told, all times…
