Heartwarming Small-Town Romances and Thrilling Mysteries

My Discomfort Zone

When I first thought of being a fiction writer, I assumed it would entail nothing more than sitting at my computer and typing all day. Not once did I consider all the peripheral things that went along with a writing career. I didn’t know I had to set up a small business, do all the […]

Packing for Home

Our time in the southern climes in nearing its end. Our friends and neighbors in South Dakota have endured the second heaviest snowfall winter on record. While we’ve been praying for rain in the Texas Panhandle, they’re praying they don’t have to shovel another foot of snow again. We spent a very comfortable time in […]

A New Laptop

Technology upgrades come so fast these days. I’m comfortable with my old computers and phones, then engineers come out with something newer and better. Having to learn something new becomes less attractive the older I get. That said, doctors say the best way to keep you mind in good shape is to keep learning new […]

I Like New Cars

This past week, I realized how easily I get spoiled. During the cruise, it was having all my meals cooked and ready for me to eat; having my bed made and my room cleaned without any effort on my part; and having the bathroom seemingly clean itself. I could get used to cruise life very […]

Don’t Lose Your Marvels

I’ve been seeing more and more ladies my age and older with pink, green, or blue hair. It seems to be a trend in my part of the world. At first, I thought it was strange, but the more I thought about it, I think it’s a sign of someone who is fun-loving. There’s no […]
