A Few Good Men Looking for a Few Good Wives

Since I’m currently working on a military romance to be released later this summer, I thought I’d recycle an old post I came up with many moons ago when I first began this career. It was appropriate then, but times have obviously changed and we now say spouses rather than automatically defer to the “wives” …

I may have mentioned one day last week in passing that crabs are a staple of Eastern Shore cuisine. They’re partaken of more than once in the three books comprising The Delaneys of Delaware boxed set which will be releasing later this week.

After taking the great sabbatical, I’ve waited a long time for this moment. A really long time. All the while I’ve been finishing …

Where in the World?

Back in the early nineties, when my boy was but a wee bairn, a worldly thief by the name of Carmen Sandiego came into my world. Little did I know, Carmen had been around for a few years via a video game before coming to small screens everywhere in the form of a cartoon where …

Self-Care for Writers

It seems there’s one of those big yellow books full of ideas and explanations for just about every subject under the sun, except one for those who write the books. In case you weren’t aware, all the big yellow books in circulation can be found in one place at their website HERE. While I’ve not …
