Good News

I feel bad for not announcing this last week, but I already had my posts scheduled and with my going out of town I didn’t have time to move things around. Anyway… Last week Wednesday Ibis got a job at a really nice hotel in Ixtapa, then the following day I was offered a job …

Gentleman, Start Your… Horses

Today I’m driving to Kentucky to spend the weekend with my best friend. She’s getting married in June (for which I have to write a speech) and this weekend we’re going to the races!

Licks All Around

Lately lot of people have been wishing me good luck with my interviews (thanks a lot of people!) and somehow Good Luck has mutated into Good Lick. I swear I was not the one who first made that slip of the tongue. I mean… I wasn’t the one who… nevermind. I plead the fifth. Anyway, …

Two Birds

My wip has a pivotal scene that takes place in the local hospital and circumstances have come together that will allow me to do a bit of research: my dad is having knee surgery. I haven’t set foot in this hospital for almost twenty years so my plan is to explore the ER while he’s …
