And the Winner is….

AMY CONLEY! I love her idea to ask the rake – “Do you believe in love?”  I would think a rake would have a flippant answer that would give a clue as to what happened in his past.  Or he might have been in love in the past, but was refused, so now he doesn’t allow himself to fall in love.  Lots of good paths in that answer. So Amy – please send me your address and I’ll get your tin of Single Malt Scotch Whisky Fudge in the mail.  Thanks everyone for playing.  You may find some of the

A Fresh Start, a New Year & New Adventures

Happy New Year, Everyone! January is always a “Clean Sweep” sort of month for me.  By it’s very position as the first month of the new year, it’s an ideal time for starting over, setting new goals, finishing off old projects. While in the past I’ve resisted taking down the Christmas decorations until mid-month (now ), this year I couldn’t wait to get it all down and put away.  In part, because I wanted to start fresh symbolically with a clean house, but also because my newly retired husband decided we needed to take a vacation for the next three

On the 12th Day of Christmas, Pax Vobiscum

Peace be with you, whether or not you celebrate on this particular day. I sort of feel as though everyone can use a bit of serenity now and again.  As I write this, on Christmas Eve, our neighborhood is peaceful, fewer traffic sounds than usual, no construction noises, and no boisterous people. By the time you read this, the traffic noises will likely be down to zero.  I enjoy that quiet because it’s so rare. This seems like a good time to share a couple of photos from my trip to England last April, one of the highlights of my year.

On the 10th day of Christmas, I went back in time.

One thing about writers, we tend to research.  It doesn’t really matter what the genre is, there’s always something that requires more in-depth knowledge than we normally possess.  Therefore it should not be a surprise to learn that I did a bit of research into the physics of time-travel in the course of writing CHARMING THE PROFESSOR.  I read several books about time theories and it’s relation to space and gravity.  I watched endless videos to explain the basics of quantum physics. So it is with some authority that I can state that… Santa Claus is a time-traveler. It’s true.
