To Be Thankful

I write second chance romantic suspense with happily ever afters. But given the current situation in our world, I almost wish I wrote dystopian fiction. Think dreadful fires in the west and northwest. Think of the people being burned out of their homes and losing their lives and livelihood. Think of the poor firefighters who’ve…

Vacation 2

This is titled Vacation 2, not because we’ve been on 2 vacations this summer, but because yesterday on my own blog I wrote about our wonderful trip to Red River, New Mexico. Here on our WBW blog, we like to talk about encouraging things, and I find nature to be very encouraging and uplifting so…

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…

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…

What Provides Inspiration? Certainly not a Colonoscopy

Like many of you, staying at home because of Covid gave Handsome and I have found inspiration to work on projects around the house. We are avid fans of HGTV. So we have been educated enough to be dangerous. We’ve worked on the yard. Reworked our garages, adding new openers and electrical outlets for future…

Graduations!

On Memorial Day, a part of my family and I drove two hours up to Lake Nacona, TX to celebrate the high school graduation of our great niece and cousin. She is the first of her generation to graduate from high school. There will be two more in her family, and we’ll have three more,…

go go go STOP!

by Kathryn Jane Just when I thought I had everything under control…life happened. I got so sick with the flu that I could barely speak or make the twenty-foot trek to the bathroom alone. Did I mention I NEVER get sick? Yeah, well, I guess I can’t say that anymore. On day five, I managed…

Would A Real Man Say That?

by Kathryn Jane Good question. I am a woman, and therefore, as enlightened as I like to think I am, I still have a female point of view…which can sometimes be annoyingly skewed. As a writer, I am often writing in a male point of view and like to think I do a damned good…

Easter – so much more than a word

Easter. Six letters. Two syllables. A simple sounding word with a nice visual balance. A word tasked with conveying entire stories, and where a picture is often worth a thousand words, some words are worth a thousand pictures. In our complex world filled with assorted and often dissimilar beliefs, Easter conjures up an amazing collection…

Resolutions/Goals

First, Happy New Year from the Sisterhood of Suspense Blog.  I love new beginnings. The idea of making resolutions or setting goals is exciting to me. As a former educator (are we ever really a former educator?), I believe strongly in the possibility of self-improvement. One way to do that is by setting   You all…
