Fall TV Season

September is around the corner which means the 2008 TV season begins! I’m still sad that Moonlight will not return but I’m looking forward to new episodes of Criminal Minds, Bones & CSI. Unfortunately, I believe CSI is losing Warrick on the first episode and I heard Gil is leaving too. I’m not sure if I’ll continue watching after they both exit.

I haven’t looked into many of the new shows but The Ex List and Eleventh Hour look interesting.

What shows are you all looking forward to seeing?

Lost Boys

I rented and watched Lost Boys, The Tribe, tonight. I enjoyed it. I’m a huge fan of the original, The Lost Boys. This one wasn’t as good but I still liked it. Corey Feldman is in this one too. Also, Angus Sutherland is the lead vampire. For those of you that remember The Lost Boys with Keifer Sutherland, Angus is his younger brother.

Reading is my passion!

If you set aside my passion for my family and my passion for writing, you have my passion for reading. I can’t remember how old I was when I discovered my passion for reading but it’s safe to say it was my first passion. I remember sneaking off with my mother’s romance novels and reading them. This was in the early 1970’s so they were mild. However, when my mother found out she wasn’t pleased. I’d have to say though that those early romance set me on the course I live today.

In my teens, I began reading Harlequin type books and then I discovered historicals. As long as it’s romance, I’ll read it. Although, these days I prefer paranormal and sci-fi erotic romance, I still read the occasional Harlequin.

My favorite author of all-times is Diana Palmer. I love her Long, Tall, Texan Series. I own almost all of her books and I often reread them.

Reading is my passion and it has gotten my through some rough times in my life. I can only hope that my stories have as profound affect on someone as books have had on my life.

Whatever passion inspires you enjoy it, live it.

Have a great weekend. I plan to enjoy a new book and a few old ones too.

TT 51

The Kentucky State Fair is in town and I thought I'd post about the things I enjoy at the fair.

1. People watching. Sitting around watching people can be very entertaining.
2. The music tents. Some of the performers are awesome.
3. The huge sow and the baby pigs. I love the baby pigs.
4. Petting the bunnies. Their fur is so soft.
5. Cool hand-made jewelry
6. The native crafts
7. The rides
8. Playing the games. You know they cheat but you can't stop playing.
9. The food-Elephant Ears
10. Corn on the cob cooked in the husk with tons of butter
11. Watching my hubby glare at the boys eyeing our daughter. (20 years ago he used to glare at them watching me. Where did the time go?)
12. Horse shows. I like the miniature horse shows.
13. Finding your car after a long, hot day and sitting down in the air conditioner. Your feet hurt, your shoes are sticky, you're hotter than hell. You had fun.

Where have I been?

Haven't posted in a while. School started back and I've been spending all my time catching up on my writing. Finished one WIP and started another that's mostly finished. When the mood strikes, I have to write.

I'll be back in a bit with my TT.

I told them they had to go to college and find a very high paying career. Maybe, it will be insentive to do well in high school.

Cover for Sin of the Past

This is the cover for Sin of te Past, my erotic contemporary contracted by Cobblestone Press.

Back from Chicago

Morning, all,
Just got back from a week in Chicago and I’m glad to be home. Don’t get me wrong, I love the city but I was ready for the quiet life again. We took my almost fourteen y/o daughter and my fifteen y/o niece with us and they had a blast. They absolutely loved Michigan Ave. What teenage girl doesn’t want to shop all day? We had plans to go to zoos, museums, the aquarium but they just wanted to shop. We did manage to go to The Hancock Observatory and Navy Pier. The view was fabulous.

My dh is from the suburbs of Chicago so I’ve been in Chicago before so we left this trip up to the girls. They thoroughly enjoyed the trip and so did we. My dh didn’t complain once about all the shopping. He’s so sweet!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

Feral Intensity releasing September 5th.
