On The Subject of Profanity In Fiction

As an author, you know when you put any book out there that somebody, somewhere, isn’t going to like it.  You can’t please all the people all the time.  And that’s fine.  There are readers out there for everybody and everything (as proved by the popularity of the dino erotica, but that’s another matter).  As […]

Operation Goddess In Training Reboot

In the beginning… Several years ago, I started a self directed goal of taking better care of my body–through fitness, better nutrition, skincare, the works.  And I dubbed it Operation Goddess In Training because the idea was to treat myself like the goddess I know I can be (this would be before the term for […]

Final Round 2 #ROW80 Check-In and Accomplishments

Wow.  It’s already the end of Round 2.  Where is the year going?  I swear it was March just yesterday.  Okay, not really.  It was over 95 yesterday… SO let’s check in on the goals I set for this round and what my actual accomplishments were. I said I would… Post at least twice a […]

Late Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Check-In

I’m just getting around to this over a quick breakfast before running in to work.  It’s been a super busy week with the teenager moving in.  She’s just about settled.  We got art hung yesterday.  Now she’s just working on organizing her desk and office supplies. Hubs and I took her to see Ghostbusters (original 1984 […]


I haven’t posted in ages. The last six weeks have been full of LOTS of changes in the Nolan house…because we have acquired a teenager. One of my closest friends has joined Teach For America and is moving to Louisiana.  Her daughter, who is much like a niece to us, wasn’t keen on going and […]

Bookish Ennui

I am presently hanging out in the reader’s version of when you are noshy and standing in front of the fridge but absolutely nothing is quite right and you don’t have any idea what you want. I keep picking different things up and putting them back down because nothing is quite hitting the right note […]

Charleston Vacay Day 2

No early morning wake up today.  Well, just before 8 rather than 6:30.  Hubs is still sleeping.  It’s another gloriously sunny day.  Probably muggy, though I haven’t stepped out on the back porch yet. Yesterday we went into downtown Charleston to the City Market.  I wound up getting a nice leather composition book cover as […]

Canine Trauma

It’s been a stressful couple of days.  Sunday, our baby dog Huck started acting…odd.  He’d vomited twice in the morning (as they sometimes do when they inhale their food faster than the speed of light).  And by dinnertime, he ate REALLY slowly (totally out of character) and wasn’t even interested in sniffing our dinner plates. […]

Sorry I’ve Been MIA

I haven’t been around lately.  I’ve been a busy busy girl! I’ve been working my way through a marketing class, which has led to some changes around here.  This is kind of the in between version of my website.  I have actually started building a brand new site with Cloudpress.  Cloudpress is a nifty concept.
