Most of my time lately has been spent researching and writing, and I am just a little over 30,000 words into my newest book, Big Lake Snowdaze. And as so often happens when I’m working on a book, the story is going off in a direction I did not see coming. I think it’s going […]

Because I have arthritis in my hands, typing can become painful after a while for me. So two years ago I bought Dragon NaturallySpeaking software, and it has really increased my ability to churn out a lot of words in a day. I’m a two finger typist at best, and on a good day I […]

In two days of writing, I’m somewhere over 5,000 words into my newest Big Lake mystery novel. I didn’t get anything done on it yesterday because we had some errands to run, but just because you’re running errands doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time, right? Our first stop of the day was at […]

We Are Humbled

To say that we are humbled by the many, many responses we got after our announcement that this was the last issue of the Gypsy Journal would be an understatement. All day long yesterday I answered emails and texts and Facebook messages, and read comments on the blog from so many people thanking us for […]

I didn’t sleep well the night before and woke up feeling groggy yesterday morning, so it was a little after noon before I started writing. But I still managed to crank out another 5,500 words and finished Badge Bunny, the third book in my John Lee Quarrels mystery series. It came in at just over 79,000 […]

We Like Quiet Weekends

This past weekend was a quiet one at home, which suited us just fine. We don’t always feel the need to be on the move, and sometimes we like days like that. Florida is in a real drought and in desperate need of rain. Wildfires are burning all over the state. We got a little […]

I spent most of last week writing, and for the last three days I had done over 10,000 words in my new book. So yesterday it was time to take a day off. Terry had seen some nice pieces of coral at the local flea market in nearby Oak Hill, so we started the day […]

The other day our friend Jim Lewis showed up at the house with two sets of Mighty Bite fishing lures that he had just gotten in the mail. Jim said according to the infomercial he had watched, these things are surefire fish killers, so he bought a set for him and one for us. Looking […]

We’ve been busy with some chores the last couple of days and I had not had any time for writing. So yesterday after I dealt with all of the e-mails that came in overnight, I parked myself in front of the computer and went to work. By the time I knocked off several hours later, […]
