Thanks to the hard work of Miss Terry, my friend Roberta Jensen, and another dear friend, Cool Judy Rinehimer, who all went above and beyond the call of duty, they completed the several stages of editing and proofing my newest book, Big Lake Quarterback, and I uploaded it to Amazon yesterday afternoon just before 4 […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

Not Much Today

There is not much of a blog today, since we have to be at the hospital at 6:30 in the morning for my biopsies. They tell me it’s a simple procedure that will involve a local anesthetic at each biopsy site and light sedation. We expect to be done and headed home by about 11 […]

Two Down, One To Go

Yesterday afternoon my second proofreader finished Dead Romeos, and this morning I will make her corrections, then send it on to my last proofreader. With any luck at all, the book should be out by the end of this coming week. I know many writers who seem to agonize over every page of a manuscript […]

I appreciate everybody who bought a copy of my new book, Big Lake Ninja, and told their family and friends about it. It’s off to a very good start. If I could ask one more favor of you, once you finish reading the book would you please consider leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads? […]

And some days you’re the bug. I definitely knew which one I was yesterday. It was just one of those days. It started out on a good note. After Miss Terry made a delicious breakfast of made from scratch blueberry pancakes (that’s the only way Terry cooks; from scratch), I answered a bunch of email, […]

How Did I Miss That?

Until blog reader Misty Farrell brought it to my attention yesterday, I did not realize I had failed to start a new drawing for the last week. Usually our free drawings begin on Thursday and the winner is drawn Sunday evening. How did I miss that? The only excuse I have is that between the […]

It’s Done!

As I had hoped, I finished my new book, Big Lake Ninja, yesterday afternoon. I started it on May 1st and finished June 30, exactly two months later. It might have been done sooner but we took a week or so off to visit my son and his wife in Alabama during that time. You […]

Another Birthday

Yesterday I wished our daughter-in-law Geli happy birthday, and today it’s my daughter Tiffany’s turn. I don’t know where the years went, because it seems like only last week that I was strapping my brand-new daughter into a car seat in the back of my brand-new Lincoln Town Car to take her home from the […]

Even after 21 years together, Miss Terry still amazes me. There is absolutely nothing she cannot do when she sets her mind to it. If you need a cake baked, something put together or taken apart, a room painted, or a delicious meal of homemade Mexican food that tastes so good you can almost hear […]
