NEW BEGINNINGS

Some say change is good, some say a new beginning or a fresh new start is great...but all at the same time! I love a challenge, especially weaving my characters in and out of various fictional plots. But weaving my time in and out of various projects has been a challenging task unto itself.  After publishing my forth and final novel of The Simon Tetralogy, I immediately began a new series, starring Maxine Ford as the female protagonist. Some of  you may remember that Max was introduced in the second novel, Noble's Quest, and has become a beloved character by many. It [...]

THE MORAL DILEMMA — WHEN IS ENOUGH?

Today, was not my usual power-walk. Instead of recording various thoughts for the book, my mind kept drifting back to a few article I had read earlier in the morning. So, before I can return to the murderous plot I'm concocting for Max to solve...let me unleash... Obama vowed he would to transform America, and in many ways he has accomplished his goal. His push to redistribute the wealth in the U.S. and his support for the United Nations’ proposal for countries to pay their fair share to those countries suffering disasters, are only two recent examples. Most significantly, he has managed to weaken [...]

DO IT…DONE…LIFE SIMPLIFIED

  You may have noticed that during the summer months I’ve been spending most of my time in the “Time Out” Room in cyberspace. But it has not been for the lack of activity or a much-needed vacation. My time has been spent organizing a move from one house to another in Sarasota including: orchestrating modifications to the new home, working off the pesky list of things to do like switching over utilities, change of address, and dealing with the myriad of documents conjured up by lawyers to be signed…all the while living in Florence. Then I returned to Sarasota [...]

  ARE YOU MILDLY CURIOUS AS TO MY RELATIVE SILENCE? If so, I can provide the reason in one word...   D E S tarting last May, Joe, my loving husband and editor, was hit with a series of medical issues. And for a man who is extremely healthy, it was quiet daunting. Then there was my foot saga that continues to present shoe challenges daily. The unexpected and unplanned health issues continued to plague us, capping off the year at the Mayo Clinic during the Christmas holiday season. Then, after the harsh welcoming of the New Year, our good health [...]

IGNORANCE IS BLISS – For a Limited Time Only

By |2016-10-19T09:46:46-04:00December 10th, 2014|Categories: Politics|Tags: , , |

I write about conspiracy theories for a living and I don’t believe in coincidences. Yesterday on December 9th, The House Oversight Committee held hearings; the star witness Jonathan Gruber—a fact few overlooked. Days before, haggling took place among the politicos as whether or not the Senate Intelligence Committee should release their so called, “Torture Report,” a partisan report detailing the CIA's use of torture on detainees held in secret facilities. Senator Diane Feinstein won—the one sided report was released. In the latter case, many overlooked the fact that the report is a result of a ten year—$40 million investigation into [...]

CHANGE IS GOOD

  If you've wondered why I've been relatively silent, just know I haven't been idle. A few months ago, at the behest of my publisher, David Dunham, I engaged the Nice Branding Agency to help give me a makeover.  At our first meeting, I announced that my favorite color is black and that I have been sporting the same shade of lipstick for over twenty years...you can imagine the response. Okay, so I had to be more open-minded or what was the point?...I reluctantly succumbed. I hope you are admiring the photo above, but don't stop with just a glance. Be [...]
