I watch a lot of Youtube videos on a variety of subjects. I like to watch DIY ones, especially about furniture refinishing. These days, a lot of DIYers are using chalk paint. Hmm. That sounded interesting. No sanding! YAY! But... Continue reading

Grief can hit you when you least expect it. Yesterday, I opened the first can of tuna we've had since we lost Fred. Fred LOVED tuna water. He knew that if you cut up onions, that tuna water MIGHT happen.... Continue reading

This year I've got a bumper crop of rhubarb. Of course, the thing I love to make most is rhubarb chutney, but I made so much of it two years ago, that I haven't even started last year's jars. And... Continue reading

The 2nd Lotus Bay, full-length novel, A REEL CATCH, is now available for pre-order in ebook. The paperback and audio links will come later (not so easy for a small press to get a pre-order for those editions). Really happy... Continue reading

Why pay a buck for a cup of Mickey D's coffee when you can buy a laugh-out-loud funny cozy mystery? I was only too happy to blurb her book, DEAD AIR, and you can get it for 99 cents until... Continue reading

Okay, I lied in the subject line. I've never been trendy ... until now, I guess. Why? I've been going to yard, garage, estate and rummage sales for years. I always assumed it was because I was cheap. Now it... Continue reading

Happy Teacup Tuesday. Isn't this cup pretty? It's a peacock, but I like to think it's a phoenix. Imagine that -- Sassy Sally's (Victoria Square Mysteries) came back from the ashes (metaphorically speaking). It was a ruin -- and as... Continue reading

The publisher never tells authors anything. A reader let me know that the ebook edition of TITLE WAVE is only $1.99. Who knows how long this will last. But if you need a good distraction while winter storms batter both... Continue reading

Today on my Facebook Group Page we're discussing the first three novels in the Jeff Resnick mystery series. As the author, I know a lot more about the characters than gets in the novels and short stories. Did you know... Continue reading

March came in like a LION. A big, stinky, ROARING lion. We woke up to at least 4 inches of snow, when just yesterday the skies were clear. Depressing. But -- there are always cheerful flowers in my house. Right... Continue reading

Ever since I can remember, my parents had "traveling rugs." What's a traveling rug? 1. cloth having a crisscross design 2. blanket When I was small, we only had a red-and-black traveling rug. It was 100% wood and SCRATCHY. They... Continue reading

When I'm doing non-thinking work on my computer (uh, goofing off. But still work--like graphics, or spreadsheets), I often have Youtube on in the background. I went through all seasons of The Unsellables on New Year's Day. Lots of times... Continue reading

Apple Tree Girl Back in the 1970s and 80s, Hummels were hot! At every antique or collectibles establishment you went, there they were--and they weren't cheap. In fact, a cheap one might be about $75. My ex-sister-in-law loved Hummels, and... Continue reading
