Effing Feline laughs at Ed #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you last week that Mr Valentine — the book Ed inspired, not my pet — has been turned into a graphic novel. The book answers a question that I know has been keeping all of my fans up at night. Namely, what would Mr V look like if his dad was […]

Speaking of nutcrackers . . .

I went to the dentist this week. That’s not usually the kind of information I share, but you see, the office had a nutcracker decoration in honor of Christmas. Not just any nutcracker, either. A DENTIST nutcracker. Needless to say, I told him about my latest science fiction romance, Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, […]

It could’ve been wishful thinking #mfrwhooks

In Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The Nutcracker ballet in a performance for and by alien humans from an alternate Earth. When she meets sexy Rafe Sekwa, the head of the dancers, he’s in the middle of a rehearsal. “If I am brusque,” he said, “it […]

Music Monday – off-the-beaten-path Xmas music #MFRWauthor

African Christmas I like to explore the lesser known alleyways of music, so today’s selection is from Africa — Sing Noel, with plenty of great drumming included at no extra charge!

Effing Feline finds the purrfect Christmas present #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am chuffed, thrilled, and purring. Finally, finally, I have gotten the glory I deserve — though not from my pet human, Mr Valentine. As many of you know, Ed’s called Mr Valentine after inspiring a Rita-Award finalist book of that name by a friend, Vicki Lewis Thompson. It’s about a guy with […]

What a gorgeous Christmas present he’d be #mfrwhooks

In Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The Nutcracker ballet in a performance for and by alien humans from an alternate Earth. During a tour of the aliens’ arts center, Lissette, the center’s manager, mentions that she’d had a one night stand with the lead dancer, Rafe […]

Music Monday #MFRWauthor

It’s December, so Duke and the Nutcracker I like to explore the lesser known alleyways of music, so today’s selection is a golden oldie — the Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn jazz version of The Nutcracker Suite. Instead of The Sugar Plum Fairy, they called this movement the Sugar Rum Cherry.

Effing Feline won NaNuWiMo #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have my own version of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. Ed, my pet human, recently celebrated his best ever NaNoWriMo by completing a record (for him) number of words on his next messterpiece. I call my version National Number of Winks Month, or NaNuWiMo. The goal is to grab the most […]

In the presence of genius #mfrwhooks

In case you missed the announcement last week, I’ve changed the name of the holiday novella I’ve been snippeting from. The new name is Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, rather than Enhanced Nutcracker. Using the word Christmas in the title seems wise from a marketing POV. Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The […]

Effing Feline hates phones #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am so selfless I’m virtually a saint. You see, I selected a snippet that includes a telephone call, even though I hate those things. Imagine napping on a nice warm lap when the phone rings. Mr Valentine jerks, waking me up. Then he reaches for the phone, dumping me unceremoniously off his […]
