A big welcome to Mary Hughes for being my first Pet Wednesday guest! Mary is an amazing author, a flutist, and an animal lover. And she has obviously found the perfect bedding for cats.
The internet is a source of amazing information. Apparently, according to one study, my son’s cats think I’m just another big (and slightly stupid) cat.
I believe this. It would explain why they cuddle and take the pets sometimes and not others. Why they steal my chair. And why they lay on pap
My first published eboook in 2010 was Cattitude. That book came from my love of my cat. But before I loved my cat, we had dogs. I loved all of them. They were loyal, goofy, affectionate, sweet, and had huge personalities. And now I have a cat with a huge personality. She bosses me around. Or tries to, anyway.
It’s not a surprise that there have been dogs and/or cats (and sometimes dragons), in most of my books. I’ve published two Must Love Pets box sets with other authors. I even

I’m thrilled that CATTITUDE, the first book I published, is one of the top 20 pet books. CATTITUDE was the first book I published, and I loved that book. Loved the attitude of the cat. Loved the woman she turned into. Loved the cat the original woman turned into. Loved the hero, his sister, his brother… Loved so much about it, and I’m happy it’s staying in that top 20.
The collage of the top 20 is below, and you can hop over to Vanessa Morgan’s blog to find out the details that will g
The week before last I went to the Writers Police Academy in Appleton, Wisconsin, at the Fox Valley Technical College and Public Safety Training Center for 4 days. It was the best workshop/conference/learning experience that I’ve been to. When I asked other authors their favorites, they all named one of the hands-on classes/workshops. Like shooting guns. Or going into a “fire house.” (I did that one.) I think it’s because it’s more like kids playing than sitting in a classroom.
It’s release day for Truth About Love & Murder and Rules of Love & Murder. I’m so very excited about both of this new series! Here’s the info about them:
The truth is that life is uncertain.
Meg Quinn hasn’t been to war, but her father has, and it changed their lives for the worse — and for the better. Now she has a sharp tongue and a mind to match … and she doesn’t trust easily. The best person she knows is losing a fight with death, and Meg is guardian of her friend’
I’ve been neglecting my blog, but I’m back now and plan to blog at least once a week. It’s been an odd year, with some or ups and downs. Including a computer crash. Still, I managed to get a lot of work done, and I’ve started a new series, Love & Murder. Truth About Love & Murder (book 1) and Rules of Love & Murder (book 2) are on pre-order for July 20. I’m VERY happy about both of these books. I started out in my r, writing short stories for print mystery magazines. I was ad
I’m in a good place right now. I have most of my tax info together (I’m just waiting for a few things before having them done). I finished the first draft of my book, and did 3 revisions already. It’s darker than my usual, but I like it a lot – enough that I decided to make it a series. I expect to do at least 3 more, and I already have ideas for my next couple of books. I’ll probably still have a dog and/or cat in a book – just because I like dogs and cats. But the animals won’t be a major p
In my work-in-progress, every chapter starts with a positive quote from one character to another character. To give me ideas, I’ve been looking up quotes, and I found this poem. It won’t fit in my book, but it inspires me. It makes me want to be better.
I’ve already blown all my resolutions for the year – partly because I pulled a muscle, which put a temporary halt to my exercise resolutions. (I’m better now, but I’m taking it easy until I’m sure that it’s healed.) And I’ve stopped ot
