The Big Laugh and the New Website

The Big Laugh

Let’s just say I’m easily amused, but rarely do I laugh so hard I have tears in my eyes. Well, at the Festival of Mystery, a conversation I had with a reader had me crying with laughter. Something about it just struck me as absurdly funny, and I couldn’t stop laughing.

The scene: Festival of Mystery. Huge crowds. A first-timer to the festival stops in front of me, browses my books. I give a little talk about them, explaining what they’re about, blah, blah, and she decides to buy one (YAY!).

Her: Which one should I start with?
Me: Well, I like to start at the beginning of the series...
Her: Oh, me too. It’s a job hazard.
Me: Are you a librarian?
(wait for it...)
Her: No, I’m a mental health professional.

I started laughing, she started laughing, then Wendy Watson (who was sitting next to me) started laughing. LOL. Still cracks me up. She chose Truly, Madly, and I really hope she likes it.

The New Website

My website has a new look! Have you seen it? I love it. I was originally going to go with a mystical starry design, but it didn’t feel right. So, I chose from the heart. I love dandelions (the puffy ones), and am especially fond of “blue” dandelions. Here’s the inspiration for my Blue Dandelion Press:

Taken by Mr. W

Anyway, check it out. What do you think?


  1. I love it! It looks great.

  2. I noticed it the other day and I love it. It is so you!

  3. Just saw it. Love the new look.

    I always go back to the beginning of a series. Does that say something about my mental health?

  4. Thanks, Linda. And LOL--if it says something about your mental health, it says something about mine, too. :)

  5. I like it a lot! Attention getting, professional and nice to look at. Nice job.
