A SEAL’s Secret Release Party

Hmm, that sounds like we’re having a secret release party, doesn’t it.  I sure hope it’s not a secret, though!  Because I’m so excited to share A SEAL’s Secret that I want to shout it from the rooftops.  Or scream it from a mountaintop.  Or, you know, stand on top of a table here in the Lair, pop champagne and celebrate.  With tootie horns, of course.  I hope you’ll celebrate with me. And please, feel free to bring a friend or three.  Sven will be circling with champagne, the margarita machine is pumping out the icy tequila treats and there is

Why I Love “Madame Secretary”

Thank you, CBS! Okay, it’s not about the absolutely adorable actor Tim Daly, who plays Madame Secretary’s husband Henry McCord on the ABC drama that debuted this year.  Nor the equally delightful Téa Leone, whose acting and low husky voice I’ve always enjoyed (uh, imagine Dr. Big hanging over my shoulder as I write, saying “Yeah, man!”).  Nor is it the we’re-going-to-finish-this-story-in-forty-four-minutes attitude the drama takes, although I’m eternally grateful for shows whose story-lines are actually concluded in the one-hour time limit. For me, it’s about the universal drama, angst, love, and politicking of family.  Yes, family.  CBS has taken

Quick Five with Susan

Hello, dearest bandita buddies! So I’ve just now–like ten minutes ago–finished binged watching all 10 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy.  I didn’t intend to do this.  I didn’t intend to sit down & watch an unconscionable amount of television all by myself.  (Mr. Sey isn’t a fan, & the girls are far too young for the soapy goodness that is Grey’s.)  But Mr. Sey was traveling a fair bit back in the fall & I found myself up late a few evenings with a pile of laundry that needed folding.  I figured I’d treat myself to some trashy TV. But I

My Inner Geek and Cover Reveal!

My name is Suzanne Ferrell and I’m a history geek. Yes, yes, I am. But not just all history. While I find world history and history of other countries fascinating, I’m a real geek for American history. The good, the bad, the questionable. Yep, love it all. So imagine how happy I was this week when I discovered the History Channel was going to do a 3-day historical movie event about the Sons Of Liberty!! Be still my heart. I’m taping it, but have been watching it with great joy! Not to mention the actors are very easy to watch.

The Stuff of Life

I want to be Bandita Tawny. Yes, I do. I mean seriously, have you seen photos of Tawny’s office—the space where she writes? It’s an awesome, cute, table-style desk with hardly anything on it.   Except a dog basket. Yep, one corner of her desk has a basket for her teensy weensy little dog, Daisy Mae. A dog that wears cute sweaters and has an adorable bow in her hair. That’s cuz Tawny is uber-organized. Yesterday I poured my coffee and went to my office, just a few steps away from the coffee maker Dear. Lord. Obviously, it was time for

An Arthurian Affair

For many of my interests, I can pinpoint starting dates. I can tell you when and how they drew me in–in some cases, I even remember who else was there at the time. But with stories that center on magic, I have no clue. Sure, I loved fairy tales and was entranced by Disney fairy tales on film, like Snow White, Cinderella and especially–I mean, did you see the prince fight that dragon?–Sleeping Beauty, but I don’t associate any big moment of discovery with such things. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t find magical tales intriguing. Of course the
