A to Z: Oh, The Places I’ve Been

Photo by John Howard on Pexels.com I always seem to miss the official A to Z thingy that goes on in the writing world each year, and I always play catch up and do my own version at some point. Sometimes I spin it up in a month, sometimes a few weeks. This time it …

The Flight of the Hummingbird

Taken from my office... “You are Mr. Owl. I am Ms. Hummingbird. We may have come from different species, but as long as you’re a bird, I’m a bird too.” – Glad Munaiseche Long ago and far away, we lived aboard MCAS, Cherry Point. For those non-Marine types in the crowd, that’s positioned in Craven …

Summer Can’t Wait

Photo by Erik Mclean on Pexels.com I must confess. I had forgotten how quickly the weather can change in the Ozarks. I’d also forgotten how sometimes here nature skips a beat, or an entire season. We’ve lived from one end of this country to the other and experienced all manner of weather, seasonal changes, temperatures, …

Writing Outside the Perimeter #OTP

“You can become really pigeon-holed in this industry.”—Morris Chestnut Although Mr. Chestnut was referring to the acting industry when he said this, I can assure you it’s true of almost any industry, of almost anything in life. There are pigeon-holes everywhere and if you’re like me, you find that you just don’t quite fit. They …

The Happy, the Mundane, and the Sad #WWBC

Welcome, y’all! So happy you’re joining me here today. Today’s Wednesday so that means it’s time for WWBC and today’s topic is favorite memories. I have my own way of defining that term and I can’t wait to share that with you. So, let’s get to it! To say something is a “favorite” denotes that …

Friday Fast Facts: OBX

Well, the idea is that the facts are fast. I’m not so sure how fast they actually will be because when I get to yammering about something that interests me, I’m likely to slow down and really weave a talk around whatever has my interest at that moment. I love sharing my life experiences and …

My Characters Are Foodies

[Adapted from an original post I shared back in the day before my sabbatical from writing.] The thought to write this post was fueled by an interview question I was asked some time ago in regards to what I felt was the sexiest room in the house. Now, being as I write romance, I think …

#whirlwindweekend on the Eastern Shore

When you’re a military family and you get asked where you’re from, the explanation can oftentimes be complicated. Normally the spouses are from two different places, sometimes having been born one place and raised another. The kids have all been born all over the globe. Mostly you refer to them by base or the town …

Friendly’s, Trimper’s, Milly’s and Ferris Wheels…

In keeping with the rolling theme of the past couple of posts, talking hometowns (my husband’s in particular) and how our upbringing and memories there affect my writing, I’ll be covering a few more Seaford staples and how they made their way into The Delaneys of Delaware series. Although a couple of these places pop …
