So the question of the day is, "What is the best part of getting older?" I can't speak to most of them. According to people who see me in public with my three kids or card me for alcohol, I look like an older sister to my kids. I have been accused more than once of having a fake ID, and...

Once upon a time in e-publishing, there were the indies. Well, they still exist, and they rock. These people came in and did it right.

I love it when I get new art, especially really great-looking art. Debi Lewis over at Phaze has done it again. This time, she made the covers for my first two Bride Ball books (Bride Ball and Bride Ball II: Poison, Lies, and No-Win Choices). Now...how do you win books? It's really not difficult. Go...

Ever had the moment when you say, there's a story in there somewhere...but will anyone believe it? That's what back to school time is like for me.
