This Site Needs Work

This Site Needs Work

See all the missing photo links to the right?  The site I used to host these shut down without warning.  Today. Nice, eh?  So, it’s going to look a little ratty around here until after Halloween.  I’ll have to reload images and find a place to store them now.  Grr.

Hectic Lately

Hectic Lately

This is my life–only I think this is a London Taxi.  🙂 But the pic fits in that life is going on crazily around me while I’m somewhere in my fictional world.  I’ve been focused on my writing project and I really like it.  Sent the synopsis to Rachel this week and she really likes it, […]

Important Meme

Important Meme

I will soon be making an announcement about my involvement in something seriously cool with eight other FANTASTIC writers.  One of them, Lilith Saintcrow, posted this meme today, so I’m breaking my “until Thursday” promise for it.  From her blog: “A meme worth, well, memeing. Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you’re in a heterosexual […]

Concentrating

Concentrating

Still alive here.  I’m digging in to get my writing goals met by Wednesday night.  Discovered plot hole in my own story.  Grr.  So, I’m putting all the focus into patching it. I’ll be back Thursday. 😉

Rare Restaurant Review

Rare Restaurant Review

This post is for anyone in the OKC area or anyone who comes to visit!  I love to cook.  Love to cook Italian dishes with wine.  I cook with wine so often, I make my own as most of you know.  😉 But when we decide to go out for a special meal, my family’s […]

Norse Mythology and the Lure of Zelda

Norse Mythology and the Lure of Zelda

It’s no secret I have a thing for Norse Mythology.  I think my parents must have known about it ahead of time because they gave me an odd name–Rinda– which, according to several sources, was the name of Odin’s third wife. Rin, Rind, Rinda…  But my interest in all things Norse began way before I […]

Love the Fuze

Love the Fuze

So, Vicki Pettersson, who happens to be a fantastic writer btw, is responsible for my addiction to this. The fruit versions are okay, but this and especially the mix of black and green tea are my favorites.  And they aren’t easy to find!!  My local Sam’s was carrying them in bulk, but now I have […]

Great Fruit Fly New World Takeover

Great Fruit Fly New World Takeover

  See that tiny, black speck next to this juicy, red plum?  My house has been invaded. I leave out bananas because I like to make this banana bread recipe with sour cream and very, very ripe bananas. Saw a few fruit flies, so I tossed the bananas and a couple of apples into the trash […]

Thanks!

Thanks!

For those of you with kids, do yours seem to know the exact second you’re getting a snack? I swear, I had barely opened the cabinet that holds the junk food today when I heard my son’s feet hit the stairs.  He was all the way upstairs!  The cabinet doesn’t even creak! So, I not only […]

Author Photos

Author Photos

Kathryn Moad  did a wonderful job!  I haven’t seen all of the pictures yet, but I want to share what she can do with her camera.  Believe me, I’m not easy to photograph.  I don’t sit still easily–unless I have a book or laptop.  😉  I also make a lot of faces, so photographing me is a […]
