Sit-down with Rene Penn; dear friend, soul sister, and a hilariously good writer!

Okay. Rene and I don't write exactly the same genre. She's sassy comic romance where I'm trying to be strictly sweet. Trying. She's flirty with the lines--steamy in places--where I'm firmly drawing some. For a change. Bedroom doors weren't always shut in my earlier writing ventures, but life brings many changes. Although I could be… Continue reading Sit-down with Rene Penn; dear friend, soul sister, and a hilariously good writer!

Want a long life? Avoid Men!

Yes, I still write romance. I’ll be making an announcement soon about contracts and other lovelies. But this tidbit from Healthy Food House—an oldie but a goodie—is too choice to pass.

What a powerful term.

She promoted the post not only to her readers but to me. Convincing me to reread the post and reflect.
