by Kris Neri, with the Femmes Fatales Readers often ask, “Where do you get your ideas?” The question is actually meant to be flattering. They mean the plotting of a writer’s novel is so unexpected and clever, they wonder how... Continue reading

The pressure some people feel can get pretty silly, Mark.

What a lovely tribute, Catroina. She must be smiling from somewhere.

Oh, Deb, I'm so glad you're doing better! What great news. I hope you'll be at full strength soon. Big hugs for you.

I also haven't read Y yet, and probably won't for a while. I'm of two-minds. While I wish Sue could have completed Z and had a "What's next?" time in her life, I suppose I like thinking that Kinsey doesn't have an ending, that we can imagine her living her life and having further adventures, even if we don't know about them.

Susan, what a really tragic story. That poor woman. The memory her daughter has to live with is also sad.

by Kris Neri, with the Femmes Fatales Why do we still have spam? I understand why we did when the Internet was new. When we naively thought anything print had to be true. When grammatically and English-challenged grifters first grasped... Continue reading

In the SW we suffer from monsoon rainstorms in July and August, and higher humidity than we're used to. The fall here is sunny and dry and cooler than the worst of summer. Perfect weather. It's my favorite season.
Welcome to the Femmes, Liz. The anthology sounds great.

Welcome to the Femmes, Liz. My dogs teach me so much every day. Thanks for putting those lessons together so well for us.

Thanks, I needed a laugh today. He died penniless? Of course, he wasn't going to make a living with that poetry. So glad you rose so far above that earliest influence. Love that your mom kept it.

Mark, that's more my speed, too. If I spent $85 on a T-shirt, I'd expect it to last for life, and that would sure require some washings.

Deb, sadly, I'm not shocked about the refrigerator life expectancy quoted to you. How is it possible that something so expensive isn't built to last. I wish I could feel satisfied with one cup of coffee a day. But good for you for giving yourself the coffee you want now that you're retired!

Susan, I'm glad to know that someone loves coffee even more than I do! How lucky you are to have someone who can fix things for you! I wish either of us could.
