I just realized it's been way too long since I've written a blog post!  I'd love to have an excuse...I mean, a valid one.  Alas, I can't blame it all on the hurricane.  For those who don't know, we live on the east coast of central Florida so we had a big scare of hurr...

Yes, the title is a little play-on-words with our cozy mystery book titles.  All three of those things, however, relate to my life at the moment.  First of all, we've had a round of bronchitis (to the extreme) going around the household with three of the four kids and...

Today being Father's Day, I thought I'd share some thoughts on my father and the father characters in my books.  I grew up a daddy's girl, and the fact that he is my stepfather (who officially adopted me) indicates that he's something special.  Keith, my husband, is in...

Last night we pulled out seven boxes of movie-making stuff from our garage and got it all organized...more or less.  We discovered we had an array of costumes, make-up, special effects kits and props that we've been gathering over the last decade.  Our family has made...

Book 3 of our cozy mystery series releases next week, and the story includes a splash of mermaids (see what I did there?).  Not only did my daughter go through a mermaid-love phase, but my husband and I had the chance to visit the mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs a few...

I logged in and was surprised to see that it had been eight months since my last blog post!  Funny how life gets so busy that you forget things you were once trying to prioritize.  My husband and I are now committing to re-focusing on our writing and book promoting so...

Today, I am interviewing a dear friend and fellow author, Susan Hill.  You will find her to be insightful, funny, and inspiring.  She has a new devotional that just released, and we will be doing a give-away!  Read this blog, comment on the blog, and you'll be entered...

Two of my all-time favorite things:  coffee and books.  If you've read any of my stories, you know that coffee shows up in every one of them.  I took my coffee inspiration to a whole new level with our cozy mystery series.  From the title to the main character's obviou...

This week is full of events for our family.  Yesterday, our family participated in a First Responder's Appreciation Parade and Cook-off Event.  It was a great event celebrating heroes, and we were happy to be a part of it. 

Today is Mother's Day.  We don't do...

Yesterday, my husband and I went to Femme Fatale Arms and Training (the store mentioned in the first Charlotte Ritter mystery book) for an Intro to Firearms/Concealed Carry class.  We spent a few hours in the classroom learning about gun safety, gun laws, how guns work...
