Living the Dream

Believing in the power of lifting up your visions to the Universe, the planets moved and I was able to retire from my job as a middle school librarian and come home to be a full time writer. The joy of seeing a goal become real, well there are no words to describe it. This is my new work area. I can be there early morning, late night, snow or ice no problem.


My new co-worker is my puppy Bella. She listens when I plot a story, agrees I am a brilliant writer, and rewards me with licks and snuggles.

I am finally living my dream. And it feels great. Check out my books. I am writing every day and hope to have a least four more out before the end of the year.

Meet & Greet Lady Antebellim

Meet & Greet Lady Antebellum

Like most writer I listen to music when I write.  One of my favorite groups is Lady Antebellum.  They write beautiful love songs, I write romance novels. Kind of a match made in heaven. 

When their concert was schedule in Des Moines I wanted tickets. I went to their website, joined the fan club and got pretty good seats.  Not great, but good to listen to the music.  Up popped a sign-up for a “Meet & Greet.”  What the hell, I would love to meet them, I never win any of these, but being always hopefully I put my name in the pot. On a particular unpleasant day I receive in my email-“You’ve Been Selected to Attend a Lady Antebellum Meet & Greet!”.  OMG!

Since I am first a writer, the fan of Lady A stuffed and autographed copy of the Writers of the Lake first book in her purse.  Off I went to get shuffled from one line to another, but I didn’t mind.  This was an experience of a lifetime.  My turn came for the photo opt, I handed them the book and babbled about how I write to their music, and yada, yada.  They were so gracious and kind I was blown away.

So here’s the picture of me (the short one in the middle) and the fabulous and ‘I will be a fan until I die” Charles, Hilary and Dave. Notice our book in her hand.
