Now that I'm done with revisions on SOME LIKE IT WITCHY, I'm back to work on the next Magic Potion book. Ah, beginnings...

I did a fun holiday interview over at Cozy Mystery Book Reviews. Please hop over and check it out--and there's a chance to win one of my books, too (your choice--how cool is that?). Giveaway runs until 12/22.  Thank you, Anna!

Okay, I did it. I joined Tsu, which is supposed to be the new Facebook (we'll see!). If anyone wants to be my friend there, just follow this link.

Good morning! Writing a little today, meeting a friend for lunch, wrapping some presents before two of my kidlets COME HOME TOMORROW FOR A MONTH. Not that I'm excited about that or anything.

Even though I'm not a morning person by any means I still get up very early because if I sleep in I feel like I've wasted a lot of my day. The struggle!

Getting my hair cut today, and am in the mood for a big change. Must resist. Big changes never turn out well...

I had to do math the other day, and I'm still recovering. There's a reason I'm a writer.

Happiness is not having to leave the house today. It's just a day to write a little, bake a little, and laugh a lot with Mr. W, Son #2, and Baby Girl. I'm missing Son #1 and my DIL (she needs a nickname!), something terrible, but they're spending Thanksgiving her family out west this year. Hoping to Skype, though. If I can figure it out after not having used it for more than a year. LOL.

Wishing you all a nice quiet peaceful happy day.

Methinks it's going to be one of those days for lots of coffee... Planning for pies. I bake some, buy some. What kind do you have on Thanksgiving? We're an apple, blueberry, pumpkin, chocolate cream kind of family...

It's a rainy and windy Monday here, and I'm hard at work on the third Potion mystery. Love spending time in Hitching Post, Alabama with all its crazy characters. Looking forward to family time later this week and...pie. :)

Good news! Found out recently that the Magic Potion shop series is going to be made into audio books. So cool! Once they're available, I'll let you know.

This about sums up my morning. Need more coffee, a little motivation, and a lemon-filled donut would be heaven...

One of my favorite things is when snow frosts the trees. Yesterday's little storm brought much happiness to my little corner of the world.

Today's -10 wind chills can take hike, however...

That Dame Agatha was one smart lady. Perfect description for one of the many motives for murder... And very appropriate for the book I'm working on.

Very grateful and honored that ONE POTION IN THE GRAVE is included in the great group of books nominated for an RT award, Amateur Sleuth category. Hurrah, Carly Bell Hartwell!

I thought this picture appropriate as I'm WISHING that I can get this book done on time, and maybe since I'm writing Darcy's latest story that my wish will come true. :)

How awesome is this tree? There's just something so mysterious about Spanish moss. I could write a whole story about this tree and the little creatures that might live in it... Hmm.

Somewhere in Debary, FL

Spent this past weekend in Florida, a quick trip -- Friday to Monday. Saw a great cross-country race, some adorable manatees, celebrated Mr. W's and my 24th wedding anniversary, and was able to spend a couple of days with my parents. It was a nice getaway, but now reality sets in. I have a book due next week. Yipes. So, I'm crawling into my writing cave, plied with coffee and chocolate and an occasional Dr Pepper. Send good thoughts. I need them. :)
