Happy New Year! May 2015 be a wonderful year. There is something about a new year that makes me excited. I’m looking forward to see what 2015 brings. Here’s to a safe, a little bit naughty and most importantly a fun filled year.

Holidays and Newsletter…

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Twas the night before Christmas and there is much afoot! Last night did something I haven’t done for years…put up a Christmas Tree. Usually I’m at friends so don’t put one up. This year my nephew and I had a great ole time putting the tree up. So pretty. We listened to Christmas music as we did. Loads of fun! I’m in the Holiday frame of mind. :)

This extended to my newsletter. I held off having my newsletter this month until tomorrow to give my subscribers a Christmas treat. :) My newsletter will be going out tomorrow and will have some Christmas treats in it for my newsletter subscribers. One of the treats is a snippet (a short read) that is based around Christmas and features some of characters from one of my books/series. Nope not sharing who or which series, you’ll need to join newsletter to find out. The snippet is something I”ll be doing in my newsletter at random times. :) Also in this newsletter will be announcements on some things I have planned for 2015. It’s gonna be a sizzling year! :)

If your not a subscriber it’s easy to join my newsletter. I usually send out a newsletter once a month with info on what is going on with me, sneak peeks and sometimes exclusive giveaways for newsletter subscribers only. Also when I have a new release you get an email about it.

Tomorrow my last newsletter for 2014 goes out and it will have some Holiday Treats (reads) for my newsletter subscribers. Join here:

Weekend Fun…

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Spent weekend catching up with my nephew – he’s here from college with me for the holidays. He’s sick and I asked him if he wanted to rest up but he said nope. He refused to let not feeling well slow him down. We had such fun. Went to movies and saw The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Night at the Museum and Annie. We loved them all. Then we went Christmas shopping! I’m completed with my shopping I was helping my nephew pick something for his mom. :) When he asked me I had to smile. He is so thoughtful. He knew where he wanted to go but not what to get. So we got her something. Last stop was the grocery store to get things we needed for Christmas. :)

It was and awesome weekend of laughter, fun and memories. As many of you know I’m big on moments/memories. This weekend is one I’ll remember. My nephew’s first Holiday season with me in NY. I can tell we’ll be having loads of moments/memories. Looking forward to it.

I’m making sure to give him stuff to help him get rid of whatever he has. Hoping we can get him better before Christmas. It looks doable since he doesn’t sound as bad and says he is feeling better.

Happy Thanksgiving 2014!

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Happy Thanksgiving! Wishing everyone who celebrates it lots of fun, eats and moments to remember! For those who don’t celebrate it – I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.

Enjoy time with your friends and family!!

New adventure…

Happy Friday!

An early Friday and I’ve been up for a few hours already. Got a lot done and off to do even more. :)

Started a new book today and already loving how it is going. The couple is very intense and I can’t wait to see what they do next. :)

Off to get some more writing done.

Another proud Aunty Moment…

Monday, September 8th, 2014

After months of getting the surprise ready for my nephew of his dad (my brother-in-law) coming to surprise him it went off without a hitch. :) He was shocked and very happy to see him. Yay! Love it when plan comes together *smile*

Then the last few months of pushing to get him ready for college it is all completed. This weekend my big sister, brother-in-law and I took him to college and then got him all settled to start the next step in his journey. He’s all settled in college and excited to be starting his program of study. As for the rest of us we’re tired but pleased at getting everything accomplished now it is up to him to do the work. We’re so proud of my nephew. Love him.

It’s been a busy summer and my big sister and brother-in-law are here for a little while longer then they head home.

Summer is fun…

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

It’s been a fun and getting loads done few weeks. My nephew came early to start getting ready for college in the fall. He’s been here a few weeks and I’ve been having fun hanging with him and helping him prepare for college in the fall. :)

This weekend I had to unexpectedly change plans to leave earlier than I thought to go to his orientation for college. So I’ve been away from home since Saturday and to today. We’ve been taking in the sights of his college and the city it is in. Beautiful place and my nephew is happy with his choice and looking forward to it. Orientation has been fun and I’ve meet loads of parents who are in the same boat as we are. First time college student with all those things to do to get them ready for it. Whew it’s fun, exhilarating and crazy all at once. But we’ve got it managed and having fun with it. My big sister couldn’t make it for the orientation (she wanted to be here to drop him off to school and couldn’t make that and orientation) so I went for her to get all the information. She’s coming soon so she can be here when he starts college. We’ll have a few weeks of our usual summer fun mixed with buying and getting him set up for college. Then in September my big sis, brother-in-law (shhh my nephew doesn’t know he is coming, :) it’s a surprise) and I will drop him so he can start college. :)

My nephew will be living with me on his off times (holiday and so on) from school. :)

Loving summer already.

Back to writing…

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

When I got home from RT Convention I slept then slept some more. :) Then tried to play catch up from when I was gone but was so tired so went to sleep some more. The convention was a blast and by the time it was done I was tired but revved. It energized my mind filling it with loads of ideas. :) I have the notes I wrote for the ideas and will eventually put them in some kind of order.

I’m back to work today on my current work in progress. Love the story and was hard not working on it while at conference but I knew if I had tried to work on it I’d be holed up in my room at the conference and forget all about anything else. LOL. I read where I left off in my story and my head is filled with words I need to get on the page so I’m now off to write.
