Well, it was over a month behind schedule, but last night I finally hit publish on Mullets And Man Buns, my 4th John Lee Quarrels book. This is my 20th mystery novel, and my 30th book. Yep, I hit the big 3-0. It may be my ego talking, but I think that’s a bit of […]

One of the most frequent questions I get from new and wannabe fulltime RVers is, how much does it cost to be a fulltimer? I can’t answer that question for them because there is no number that is accurate. No one-size-fits-all, plan your budget this way and you’ll be fine number. How much does it […]

When I lived in the Midwest, and in the Rocky Mountain West, I was familiar with droughts. They were a common occurrence, and it was disconcerting to sit around watching the grass turn brown and the forests become tinder dry. When we lived on the Mogollon Rim in northern Arizona’s high country, we were in […]

After taking care of the morning’s email, I spent part of the day writing and got in another 3,000 or so words in my new John Lee Quarrels book. Fans of the series keep asking me when it will be ready, and all I can say is that I’m working on it. Books are like […]

When we bought a house and got off the road, and stopped publishing the Gypsy Journal, a lot of people thought that that we were retiring. But that’s not true. We just changed our lifestyle and refocused our energies. But that doesn’t mean we’re sitting around watching the grass grow and listening to our arteries […]

Bike Week, spring break, and St. Patrick’s Day all at the same time. Talk about a wild and crazy trio! And you wonder why I’m not going anywhere near Daytona Beach for the next week or so? No, thank you, I’ll stay right here in our little town of Edgewater, where things are a bit […]

I had high hopes for our SimpliSafe home security system when we bought it, but as it turns out, it’s pretty much worthless. Over and over again when I arm the system I get a message warning me that there is no link to the dispatch center. When I call, after being on hold for […]

Oops, I Goofed!

Blog reader Randy McRae sent me an email yesterday asking me why there was no free drawing this week. Randy thought it was because of the holiday, but the truth is I goofed and just completely forgot about it. Sorry about that. I’ll get back on track for next week. This last week was really […]

Yesterday was rather frustrating for me. Oh, who am I kidding? Let me correct that; yesterday was darned frustrating for me! I had planned to work on my new John Lee Quarrels book, but my computer didn’t like that idea and chose not to cooperate. For a while now it’s been running slow, not opening […]

Whenever I give a seminar on writing or self-publishing, I always tell the audience that while it’s great to have the newest computer with all the bells and whistles, you just can’t beat having a strong Internet connection when you want to get online and research something for a book, and having your own writing […]
