Not going to have sex with you #mfrwhooks

Here’s another hook from my now-finished WIP, tentatively titled Audra Fleeing, Audra Finding. The title confused some people (including Lisabet, who’s opinion I cherish) because I haven’t shown you Audra yet. Instead I’ve been giving selections from the book’s other main thread. Therefore I’ve decided to confuse you by switching to Audra’s thread. This is […]

Off the Wall Inspiration

Once a month the Science Fiction Romance Brigade authors showcase snippets from new releases, works in progress, cover reveals or other fun things. Check out all of this month’s participants. My topic for this month is a wall.  Specifically, the office wall behind my desk, and how it inspires me. It’s pretty unusual for an Arizona author […]

Effing Feline purrs

I, Effing Feline, must make this quick.  My life is busy; I have more chores than just writing these posts for my servant, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine.  When Mr V has a migraine, I must curl up on his lap and heal him with the magical power of my purrs.  And tonight he has a migraine. Without further ado, then, […]

Effing Feline survived — whew!

I, Effing Feline, lost something precious a few nights ago — sleep. Why? Because there was a lot of shooting in my neighborhood.  I survived, though it was extremely close — and I was, of course, extremely brave throughout the ordeal. My pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine, says there was no shooting. It […]

Effing Feline is NOT Garfield

I, Effing Feline, am piteously hungry. Last year my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine, had turkey for Christmas and I had great leftovers. This year, his family had lasagna, instead. Garfield likes lasagna, but real cats do not like lasagna. I had cat food for Christmas dinner. Cat food! On Christmas! Despite my growling stomach, I’m […]
