It was emotional and full of tears, but I think we both got a lot of answers we'd wondered about our entire lives. I don't have quite the extended family the Wenches do though! :)

I'll tell you a true story for April Fool's day, one I gave up on a long time ago. About six weeks or so ago, I found my birth mother on Ancestry.com. No name for her, just initials and an indisputable match. This past Tuesday after researching the almost no clues information I had (hey! I'm a writer after all!) I spoke with her on the phone. So while this whole story may be an April Fool on Anne's part ;) sometimes, weird things really do happen...

I think all those rabbit warrens and trails have given me a much more well rounded education than I ever received in school! I have to not start when I'm writing or sometimes, I can spend two days 'researching'! And really, it's too bad they didn't have Old Spice back then. That was my dad's scent of choice and I sort of forced it on my husband, but it's just so male perfect.

I have to agree with Anne. I gave up on a lot of authors who seemed to just remix their first four or so novels and published them with a new title. All they were writing were the same stories with different character names. Maybe I should send them all a copy of this?

Hmmm...I'm writing book two of my Regency Werewolves. I'm kind of partial to them though. :) As to having any 'ghost stories' of my own, aside from all the old, tried and true ones you tell each other as kids, I did write one of those too. I just love paranormal. :)

I love winter stories, but I agree, I don't think most authors convey the feeling. Maybe they haven't really experienced it enough to, I don't know. We had oil heat when I was young and invariably, there would be some moisture that would collect in the line from the outside tank to the inside furnace so there was many a day we woke to no heat and sometimes, it was off for several days because the line would burst and would have to be replaced. We'd have to crack the faucets to make sure the water pipes didn't burst as well. One advantage to not having running water in regency times ;)

I think I have the solution! Why don't you stick your hair ties to the fridge using the LP's post its? That way, you won't lose them as much and he'll...well, I don't know, but it's a thought. :)
