Merry Christmas!


Thanks to all of you who stopped by my site this year. It made it extra special for me. It's been an up and down year, with winning and being nominated for awards and losing a dear uncle, with working hard and keeping to my deadlines. With trying to share my time equally with family and friends. With always keeping my mother and father, near to my heart.

I thought I'd post some pictures to highlight my favorite things from 2007. Hope you enjoy!

The Family - My Dear Husband Don, My daughter Nikki and son Jason.

many years we've known each other!

Being a part of Petticoats and Pistols has been a blast. Let me say I don't know a better group of authors headed up by Pam Crooks with Cheryl St. John, Geralyn Dawson, Stacey Kayne, Linda Broday, Mary Connealy, Patricia Potter, Karen Kay and Elizabeth Lane. I hope you get a chance to stop by in 2008! The fillies are cooking up lots of fun blogs and contests!

I was thrilled to win the 2006 National Reader's Choice Award this year!

And lastly, working this year with Operation Gratitude to send care packages to American soldiers around the globe. It was a truly rewarding experience.

The Way to a Man's Heart Featured on CPQ Magazine and a Chuckle!

My book, The Way to a Man's Heart will have a featured ad in CPQ Magazine, a digital magazine for readers and writers of romance. You can download the FREE December issue of this magazine this week at Cobblestone Press. Check it out!!

And Visit me tomorrow (Friday) at Petticoats and Pistols to find out what I have in common with Ben Affleck!

Thanks to my friend Mary, I received a good chuckle today:
The Husband Store
A brand new store has just opened in New York City that sells Husbands.

When women go to choose a husband, they have to follow the instructions at the entrance: 'you may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are 6 floors and the value of the products increase as you ascend the flights. You may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you CANNOT go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

On the 1st floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men have jobs.

The 2nd floor sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

The 3rd floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids and are extremely good looking."Wow!" she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the 4th floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help with Housework."Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the 5th floor and sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, help with Housework and Have A Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the 6th floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opens a New Wives store just across the street.

The 1st floor has wives that love sex.

The 2nd floor has wives that love sex and have money.

The 3rd through 6th floors have never been visited...
