I started watching Ozark, but tapped out recently. The whole cast is fabulous, the writing is great, but… there are no real heroes in this show. And the scene with the toenails is where I turned it off, and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m just going to say, yuck… Esai Morales […]
As we approach Halloween, I figured scary ManCandy was a good idea. I won’t lie, I read It in high school. Then, when it was on television I tried to watch it, got so scared I had to sleep with my closet doors tied closed. Yep… Tim Curry made me afraid of my own bedroom. […]
Tobias Menzies is Britain’s equivalent to Kevin Bacon, I swear! He’s in Game of Thrones and plays the dastardly sadistic Jack Randall in Outlander. But he’s a chameleon, and has more than 55 credits to his acting career listed on IMDB. I caught him in Casino Royale, Midsomer Murders, and then The Night Manager (which […]
If you consider spending your money on these stickers for your feet, I’m going to ask you to donate to SoulsForSoles instead. WTF? Seriously? Stickers for your feet? Check out their “test” for anti cutting, because you know walking on pavement and grass has always been SO difficult. WTF? Check out their rigorous testing here. […]
Some of my favorite people in the world are dealing with Hurricane Irma right now, so this month I thought I’d give you some Monday Motivation. Y’all know you want these hotties working your cleanup!
My husband – who I married 26 years ago tomorrow – decided to grow a beard a couple of years ago. Why? Because he’s tired of shaving. I don’t blame him and I like his beard. He mows every week, to keep the wild ones at bay, and I’m happy with that. Because, I don’t […]
I’m hoping to meet more readers, interact – and you know you can always write to me – and introduce my favorite characters to the romance readers of the world. If you use Wattpad, check out Jason and Laura I’ll be updating the entire story in July. If you love serials and serial apps, check out my […]

I’m feeling like Dos Equis switched out Bewitched’s Darrin with no warning. It’s awkward – like, I know that’s not the real Darrin, but then you wonder if you’re the only one who noticed it? Maybe you’re paranoid? Like me? I caught the latest Most Interesting Man in the World commercial and it’s with a […]
This month – ManCandy The Author Edition. Starting with Poe. I spent this last weekend at the West Virginia Writers Conference and had a blast, possibly fan-girled a bit. Best part about WVW… nice folks and moonshine. How many conferences have you been to where moonshine was part of the evening entertainment, eh? Michael Knost […]
A self-folding origami robot. So cool! The science geek in me sees medical uses, which reminds me of the VERY old movie Fantastic Voyage. If you haven’t seen it, well, don’t pay to see it, but it’s fun to watch what the writers in 1996 thought the “future” would be like. Check it out!
I loved Get Smart. I wanted to be Agent 99. When I saw the ad for Hushme, a brand new piece of technology – with its own Kickstarter campaign – it reminded me of the cone of silence. If you don’t know Get Smart, watch the quick clip below. If you want to giggle at stupid […]
Your countenance perfectly informs me that you were in company last night with the person who interests you at this present time, more than all the rest of the world put together. -Persuasion
Have you seen Amazon’s Echo Look now offers the ability to take selfies, video AND give you style recommendations? WTF? Have years of participation trophies now made it impossible for millennials to operate without external validation? I can see color blind people asking, Alexa, ‘what color is this?’ but honestly, I have never heard my color blind friend […]
I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but, like everybody else, it must be in my own way. -Sense and Sensibilities
Okay, I’m a Kristen Proby junkie. Blush for Me is Kat’s story and I’ve been waiting months to read it. And I know as soon as I’m finished, I’m going to reread all of the Fusion novels. I love her characters. I love her books. And usually I’m smart enough to plan a vacation day […]
I’m taking a writing class by @sgredling and I love this exercise! She’s given us writing prompts, but in a twist we have to use ONE prompt, and flesh it for different genres. So… here’s my first attempt: Prompt: After a head injury, a young man can hear the color blue speaking. Everything blue speaks […]
Dear @StephenKing, You’re killing me. -A Darling Killing off the Adverbs – But, I really, really, really like them. “Adverbs are not your friends,” wrote the man responsible for my wedging a chair under the door knobs of my closet keeping kid-eating clowns contained along with Hammer-pants, scrunchies, […]
Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez starred in the remake of Point Blank, Zero Dark Thirty, The Girl on the Train, and many others. He’s swoon worthy, right? Big, bold featured, and he’s got that something that inspires a gal to write. What do you think? What actor do you want to be your book boyfriend?
