Well – I competed in #pitmad on Twitter today. Yup – did get a request. Many thanks to Trisha Leaver for breaking out her pompoms to cheer me on! And a big thanks to all the retweets from fellow authors and some agents! #Pitmad is basically 140 characters of hell in which you pitch your […]
BOOK REVIEW: GREAT AUNT SOPHIA’S LESSONS FOR BOMBSHELLS (ADULT FICTION)
Posted on September 9, 2012 4 Comments
GREAT AUNT SOPHIA’S LESSONS FOR BOMBSHELLS by LISA CACH I simply couldn’t put this down – read it cover to cover in one day. Lisa Cach is riotous. While it is entirely possible I understand the feminist humor in this because I am a fellow graduate of the oldest all women’s college in the country […]
Digital Campfires and Tweeted S’mores

I suspect camping is quite different now-a-days then it was even five years ago. Granted, I have only been REALLY camping for the past two years (anti-roughing it with my Jayco X20E trailer), but when we go, our electronic devices and laptops come with us.

Recently I had a discussion with a dear, old friend about how, when we were young, no one read warnings. We kids were flung in the far back of a decrepit station wagon with the dirty dog and sand-encrusted beach toys. Suntan lotion was known as the bottle with the bare-butt baby on the front […]
Yes, Virginia, a school bus can go rabid.

My three-year-old sees a face on every car that crosses our path. Secretly, you see it too. The headlights are eyes, the grill a smile. Sometimes a vehicle can be temperamental, breaking down at the most inopportune times. Sometimes we name them and cry when we sell them. Which raises a valid question: are the […]

“A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation.” Mark Twain Mark Twain, brilliant dude that he was, nailed it. Some words just take on a life of their own. But what happens when they are stored away, sudden dinosaurs in our functional lexicon? Do we lose a piece of […]
