Recently I went to the RWA conference in Washington, DC. There, I met up with 2,000 of my peers in writing. Some published, some not. Always good to see old friends and make new ones. I don’t have much to report by the way of the biz, as I didn’t attend any workshops. This was more of a mingle and see my agent and editor trip. I have the world’s best editor. She’s fun, dresses way cool, always has the best glasses. She hip, she’s trendy, and she likes my writing. What more can I ask for? Read the rest of this entry »
All my life, I’ve only had one refrigerator. I am organized, I managed it. Even when holidays came around, pre-made pies, fruit salads, etc., found a spot. Beverages were put in an ice chest for the day and folks could help themselves.
Then I met my husband. I inherited six refrigerators and one meat freezer. In order, they are . . .
My job is interesting. I write books. I have fans write me letters and e-mails. It’s a cool thing. So when I’m a fan of someone, I hope they think that’s a cool thing, too.
I recently started watching a show called BREAKING BAD. It’s on AMC. Thank goodness they’ve optioned it for a Season 3. I’ve watched Season 1 and 2. I was hooked after the first episode. It stars Bryan Cranston–Hal from Malcolm in the Middle fame (and almost completely unrecognizable.) And Aaron Paul. I’ve never see his work before and I don’t know why not. This actor is amazing. He plays Jesse Pinkman.
I have a 20 year old daughter who works at Sephora. She’s fabulous with make-up, and she’s also a cosmetologist who does my hair. She holds down two jobs, pays her bills on time, is responsible and is–if I may say–gorgeous. So she just called to say she’s made it to the next round of Pro Beauty–an in-house competition within Sephora over who their top in-store make-up artist will be!!!! I am so proud of her! She’ll be going to San Francisco to compete in the next round. I’ll be cheering her on!
