I’m excited to be a part of the Roses of Prose. I’ve been guest blogging all over the place and now I feel like I’ve found a blogging home. After this introduction, I’ll be here every month on the 9th and the 24th so I hope you can join me as often as possible for some fun. I’m not serious very often. When you’re a klutz like me who does things like flush your pedometer down the toilet, you have to laugh at yourself to stay sane.
I’m a desert rat by birth, and until I married a man doing a stint in the Army, my travels outside of Arizona had been limited to California, Nevada and New Mexico. After seeing a bit more of the world those first few years of marriage, I discovered I have a gypsy heart. Now years later, we are in the process of moving for our 24th time. We’ve lived in 23 homes (owned 7 of them), in 17 cities, 6 states and 2 countries.
I’m blessed with creative soul mates. My husband is an excellent photographer. My adult son who lives out west in the pines with his lady is a singer/song writer with talent unending. And my dog, Rusty, creates joy. After all, he’s the smartest dog in the world.
The only thing I love more than reading is writing. My most recently published novel, Sleeping with the Lights On, is a contemporary romance with suspense and humor. My novels involve women who’ve racked up experience while looking for that perfect life style to suit their adventurous natures; they’re out to discover what life can offer. Love and romance are always part of the brew. Right now, I’m writing the first in a three book series of romantic mysteries and a short for Christmas while searching for a home for my YA Historical novel. My contemporary western novella is almost home.
So…number one on my list of likes is writing, number two is reading. Also on my list of favorite things: traveling, motorcycle riding, spending time with my son and his lady, red wine, summer nights sitting on the deck with friends, funny or thriller movies, Mexican food with a killer Margarita, girl days with my sister and/or Mom, hiking, a real wood fire on a winter evening, dancing.
What are a few of your favorite things?
