For those of you new to my blog, here are some definitions that might help:
The Opium Den: this is Starbucks, where I write most mornings. I used to write there in the evenings as well until I realized I was consuming about 1000 calories of baked goods a day on top of buckets of caffeine.
The Outer Banks: Barrier Islands on the coast of North Carolina, where a bunch of my books have been set.
The boys: this refers to my Shelties, Jet and Keeper. They’re two and three. Jet’s energetic and outgoing; Keeper is shy and laid back. One has a bedunder my computer desk, the other under my rolltop desk.
My soulmate, significant other, boyfriend: John, a commercial and art photographer with whom I share my life. He’s my muse and brainstorming partner. He has a studio downstairs and I write upstairs (when I’m not at the Opium Den).
The Dragon: Voice Recognition Software, which I both love and loathe.
The Girls: This refers to my three stepdaughters, who are, in reality, women. And pretty terrific women at that.
|NJ: the cutest little grandson ever born.|
Stories: What I love to write. If you haven’t read any of my books yet, please give one a try . . . and be sure to let me know what you think.
