Someone asked me today how "the book stuff" was going, and I honestly had no idea how to answer. That's the tricky part about being an author--we never really know! But I can tell you that I am smitten with... Continue reading

I'm sitting on my ginormous new sectional eating Boom Chicka Pop kettle corn for dinner and watching some weird David Blaine magic special with the sound turned off because the batteries in the remote control died. I just watched him... Continue reading
