All About Jeanne Adams

It’s wonderful for a writer to live near Washington, DC as I do. The research resources are fabulous, the scenery is great – complete with monuments, gorgeous public buildings, and the most amazing, weird, convoluted, political people – and I get to be here with the most awesome family, friends and neighbors in the world. I live here with my wonderful husband (he’s my personal hero), my two delightful, growing-too-fast sons, and my silly dogs.

I teach classes on body disposal, making your writing space work for you, and surviving "almost there" in the writing world.

Being part of the Ad(d)ams Family, as you can imagine, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love to work in the garden, run my dogs, hang out with my family, and write.

Oh, and I love, love, LOVE being a Romance Bandit!

Other than that, as another, more famous author says, the rest is subject to change without notice.

It’s the Little Things….

You know, it’s August.  In the US, it’s freakin’ HOT, humid and, unless you’re in the pool, fairly miserable.  As you ALL know, I’m a winter girl, not a summer one.  I don’t love the hot weather, never have.

We had a week of those here last week.  I spent a lot

John Adams for President….No, not really…

Now don’t get worried or gear up for a political discussion here…. I absolutely refuse to talk politics in my favorite place to escape, The Bandit Lair. PLEASE do not bring this current election here. Okay, thanks. That said, I was rereading the John Adams Biography by David McCullough and thinking that things have changed, and yet not.  There was plenty of mudslinging and downright lies back in the “good old days” too, when it came to politicking.  Adams and his rivals were just that, rivals, and had little good to say about one another. A friend recently said –

May Coming Attractions….

Welcome to MAY!!  It’s supposed to be Spring in the USA, but I just saw Bandita Susan posting about how cold it is where she lives. And a Bandita Buddy posted from Colorado, showing snow on the ground.  OMGosh!! Mother Nature is NOT happily bringing spring. It was 56 degrees at Bandita Jeanne’s son’s baseball game today. Not.  Even. Close. To. Warm. However, we’ve got warmth in the Lair, as usual. Bandita Jeanne will be on on the 8th, for her usual post.  She’ll also be hosting two guests this month… One is a fabulous author and media consultant Amy
