Greetings my sparkly little love monkeys! It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday so I’ve gotten together with my fellow Omnific Sisters to pay homage to those special ladies in our lives.
I’m here to talk about this lady
Wait, hang on, as much as I love this beautiful photo of my mom, I have to be honest, that isn’t the real her.
THERE SHE IS! This, ladies and germs is the lady I know. My mom, a lady that isn’t afraid to let the wind in her hair, literally!
In all seriousness there aren’t words to express my love and adoration of my mom. She’s not only my mom, but she’s my best friend.
Yeah, when my brother and I were kids we drove her bonkers. But beside all the times we made her want to pull all her hair out, move to Outer Mongolia, change her name and take up sheep herding, she taught me a lot. She taught me how to be a strong woman, to stand up for myself and not take anyone’s crap. She taught me that being a mom may not be a “glory” job but it is the most rewarding and sometimes the most heartbreaking one that there is. She taught me that it’s okay, as a mom, to feel like you want to pull all your hair out, move to Outer Mongolia, change your name and take up sheep herding. She’s lifted me up when I needed a boost and taken me down a peg or two when it was needed. She keeps me grounded and I know that no matter what, she has my back. She has stood beside me every step of the way through my journey into publication and I’ll tell you what, she is the best little pimper out there! I don’t think there is a person that has met her in recent years that has not heard the words, “my daughter, the author/writer” come out of her mouth because God love her, she will work that into a conversation if she has to bend over backwards and do a cartwheel. She truly is the best not to mention she’s not afraid to do this…
Or even this…
Yep, couldn’t ask for a better role model, I just hope that I’m doing her proud.
Until next time,
Oh yeah, I almost forgot the Photo-A-Day in May photo!
Day 9: A Snack

Greetings my hot little love monkeys!
Are you keeping cool in this unGodly summer heat? Are you remembering to drink your fluids and put on your sunscreen? Don’t make me get my mom face on!
So it’s Thursday and you know what that means, it’s time for Omnific Publishing’s Author! Author! Blog Bounce!
Oh yeah, you’re looking at squirrel on a hippity hop! Mind you, y’all have no idea how much this photo scares the crap out of me, because I’m terrified of squirrels. I know what you’re saying, “But they are soooo cute!”
Cute my arse! They are evil beasts that attack when you least expect it. How do I know this? Experience. Oh yeah, I’m stalked by squirrels on the regular, and one the size of a cat lives in my palm tree, biding his time for a moment to strike…AGAIN! I have narrowly escaped his squirrely claws once and I won’t be caught awares again.
It was November and I had just gotten home from a Costco run. I was unloading the van and as I walked back out into the garage I saw the biggest squirrel I’d ever seen standing in my path. Now, I’m thinking I’ll just shoo him off and finish my unloading.
So I wave my arms and yell “Shoo!” at the thing and I swear, the damn thing cocked an eyebrow at me like, “Really? That’s all you got?” Since that didn’t work I thought I’d stomp at it because I happened to be wearing combat type boots.
So, I stomp towards the beast and shout again, “SHOO! SCAT!” to which the squirrel just looked at me like, “Bitch, please!” Okay, third time’s a charm right?
So, I raise up my foot and start to shove at hellbeast, once again bellowing, “SHOO! SCAT! GET OUT OF HERE!” Then the unthinkable happened. The evil creature reared up, latched onto my boot with its squirrely talons and proceeded to lick the bottom of my boot. Yeah, he could have been just tasting something I might have stepped in, but I think not, he was sampling the goods, deciding whether or not he wanted to scale my leg, latch onto my neck and rip open my jugular so he could drag my lifeless body back to his squirrely lair.
So, I begin screaming and shaking my foot, flinging the beast across the garage. Ever since that day, this squirrel and his furry minions torment me, sitting on the fence just outside the dinning room window, watching me, chattering at me outside my bedroom window, oh yeah, I have their number. It’s a conspiracy I tell you!
I’m sorry, I got a little carried away there. Where was I? Oh yeah, the bounce!
You know how it works, join in, bounce around and all that goodness!
That’s all I have for you today, behave and keep cool my loves!
Until next time,

Greetings my awesome little love monkeys!
So it’s Thursday and you know what that means…
Yep, that’s right, it’s Author! Author! Blog Bounce Time!! Look at this guy, he’s totally committed to that belly flop, isn’t he? Is he nuts? I know we’ve all done a belly flop at least once in our lives, either intentional or not, and you know what? Those suckers HURT! I just don’t get the point of throwing a flop on purpose. That SMACK when you hit the water…just hearing it makes me cringe.
Anywhoodle, you all know the drill right? Head on over to the Omnific Blog for all the deets and the links to other blogs. And guess what? They are also previewing the cover for The Winemakers Dinner with this guy Dr. Ivan McYummipants…
Okay, okay, his last name isn’t really McYummipants but from what I hear of the book *giggle*
Jeebus, I got sidetracked again. So, go forth my darlings, check out the other blogs!
Until next time,

Greetings my super duper little love monkeys!
Well it’s Thursday and you know what that means…
Yep, it is Author! Author! Blog Bounce time! I love this photo but I gotta tell ya, the only way you’d see me jumping off of the dock, willy nilly, into a lake would be if my entire body was on fire. Like literally on fire and the only way to put it out would be to plunge myself into the lake. I think I’ve mentioned before that I have water issues. I’m terrified of large bodies of water such as lakes and oceans. And if I choose to submerge myself into said large body of water I’m quite particular as to the condition of the water in question. Example, there will be NO getting into the water where I can’t touch the bottom if I can’t SEE the bottom. None of this jumping off a boat mid-lake, no leaping off of the dock or any of that nonsense. Why? Because I want to know what is swimming around underneath me contemplating eating me for lunch. Now, if I can actually see the bottom I would get in because I can see what is in there swimming with me. I’m also particular about the condition of the bottom that I might be touching. No slimy, weedy, mossy or anything like that. Ick. Seriously, I could go on and on about my issues with water and the creatures that live within it. There is a story about a family trip to an aquarium and a panic attack, but that’s a story for another day. Do you have a weird/unusual fear that makes absolutely no sense to anyone, even yourself?
Okay, y’all know the drill, head on over to the Omnific Blog and join the bounce or see who is bouncing along with me!
And don’t forget, you have until midnight tomorrow to enter the Lovestruck Giveaway hop! I’m giving away three books!
That’s all for today, my darlings, stay tuned for more blog fun!
Until next time,

Greetings my sunshiney little love monkeys!
So, it’s not quite “officially” summer, but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature in my neck of the woods. It has been hotter than a half-nekkid Dr. Ivan in water wearing sunglasses…
Or, let’s say, a rugged-ed out Dr. Ivan wielding a handgun…
What is it about a hot rugged guy with a gun that makes you want to lick the screen? Or is it just me?
Anyway, now that I have your attention, let’s get down to b’ness! Now, you have all seen the little “back cover” type blurby thing about Divinity right? Well, my amazing editor, Miss Colleen Keough-Wagner, has helped me come up with an even BETTER back covery type burby thing! And by “helped” me, I mean she totally did it and I just sat back and said, “OMG that is so much better than what I came up with!” So, here ya go, the new and improved back covery type blurbity bit…
They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Chances are, you’ve interacted with one or two of them in your lifetime without even realizing it…
Demon hunter Evelyn Brighton saves unsuspecting humans from the malevolent creatures masquerading around them every day. Working under the Lebriga Corporation’s direction, she never fails to bring her A-game with her keen skill, fiercely independent spirit, and the best weapon in her arsenal: the Divinity blade.
Evelyn’s world is turned on its ear, however, when she is ordered to train cocky new recruit Daniel Summers. They both feel an instinctive pull drawing them to one another, the ancient spells tattooed into their skin illuminating whenever the two hunters come into contact. But with evil looming over the city of Los Angeles, Evelyn and Daniel’s mutual competitiveness and sense of duty to Lebriga and all humankind forces them to hold back their desires. Will their restraint be enough to keep them focused and save southern California, or will the dark forces prevail?
Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Divinity is an action-filled, fast-paced marriage of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Edgy, witty, and sexy, it will bind you in its spell.
OooooooOOOooooooOOO! Are you thoroughly intrigued?
Alrighty, well, it’s Thursday and you know what that means…
That is right, it is Author! Author! Blog Bounce! time! YAY!!!! I just love this photo, it makes me smile. I tried to find a new one for summer but when I Googled for images I wound up with a plethora of women in bikinis jumping around on the beach. Yeah. Pleth-o-ra! So, I dug into my cache of images and pulled this one out. Not to mention the oh-so-pretty images of our dear Dr. Ivan.
You know how it works, just clickty click our little image here and sign up or see who else has signed up to bounce!
That’s all I have for you today my lovelies! Stay tuned for more blog happy fun times!
Until next time,

Greetings my sparkly little love monkeys!
Did you detect a note of sarcasm in today’s blog title? Cause I gotta say, there is SOOOO much sarcasm in that title I’m surprised it didn’t leap off of the screen and slap you across the face with sarcasm.
For those of you out there that do not have the she demons that are pre-teen girls, let me enlighten you. It’s like living with a live grenade, or in my case two live grenades. Now, these just aren’t regular live grenades, these are grenades that are highly unstable and leaking explosive juice. These could go off at any given moment because, for example; the sky is blue, the grass is green or the fact that mammals convert oxygen into carbon dioxide, in other words for no reason what-so-ever!
Mind you, my two older spawns are boys, so the only experience I have with dealing with pre-teen girls was being one myself eleventy billion years ago, but I do vaguely remember bursting into tears for no reason so I have a modicum of sympathy for my girls and what their hormone filled bodies are going through right now.
But the men folk in our house are completely stumped. Our middle son, bless his heart, recently expressed concern for his sisters and wondered if counseling would help. I told him what was going on with them and that it was normal, as abnormal as it seems. After that our conversation went a bit like this…
Ryan: “How long does it last?”
Me: “Until they hit menopause.”
Ryan: “When is that?”
Me: “When they’re 50 or so, but it’s going to get worse before it gets better.”
Yeah, poor dude.
Anyway, my babies are growing up and I’m not thrilled about it. They have reached that age that mom is embarrassing and the only good think about that is that it is so much fun to embarrass one’s own children. They’ll appreciate it later in life.
After hours and hours of therapy
Well, that’s all I have today, I just had to get that off my chest and now I feel tons better sharing my woes with my awesome little love monkeys! Don’t forget that today is Author! Author! Blog Bounce! day and check out who’s blogging along with me…
Oh crap, I didn’t post a photo of something bouncing! Hang on…
There, zombies on hippity hops because it makes me smile
Stay tuned for more blog fun!
