Forever Promised (and the solution to a dilemma)

on June 27, 2013

So, every time I have a book release I have a dilemma with the blog.  Do I blog on my regular day (which would be today, at every two days) and then make a special blog for the actual story with all the links, or do I blog on the story release day with all… Read More

Baby, Take a Bow

on June 24, 2013

Squish, wearing the costume Ididn’t get to see. Omigod, am I glad that’s over with. Recital hits us every year, and every year, I wonder that I have something new to blog about.  This year is no different–yeah, I was backstage this year, but that only made the experience, uhm, richer somehow. Okay. It wasn’t… Read More

So 24 is what? Pewter?

on June 17, 2013

Happy Pewter Anniversary to Mate and me! Huzzah!  Hooray!  Can we sleep in? See, today may be our anniversary, but this weekend was the San Francisco Marathon, and Mate ran the half-course, so I got to be his plus-sized cheerleader on the sidelines. It was really a pretty wonderful time. We got to SF early… Read More

Forever Promised

on June 14, 2013

Okay– so wrapping up a series is hard.  I mean, really hard.  I had to put this book down three times– once for City Mouse, once for Bolt Hole and once for Racing for the Sun.  It was worth it– I think both those books were new territory for me and I’m proud of them,… Read More

I couldn’t figure it out.  Chicken has been with the dance place since she was a baby– literally, three years old, barely potty-trained, and passive aggressive as hell.  Anyway– she was a baby, and I volunteered for the recital– a… Read More

What’s the Name of That Song?

on June 9, 2013

Chicken sent me this  and this which was kind of her because I’m OVERWHELMED with stuff to do, and nothing works better than being completely distracted from your real work by stuff that makes you happy. Wait… there’s a word for that, isn’t there.  What’s that word again… I don’t know… but I’m sure I’ll remember by… Read More

The Last Day of School and Why “Amy Lane”

on June 5, 2013

My computer is having trouble loading pictures, and if that doesn’t stop, well, my post is going to be way more boring than I’d planned. Anyway– today was the kids’ last day of school.  They were so excited– we picked them up and took them to buy a book and then took them for frozen… Read More

If You’re Going to Live Outside the Law…

on June 3, 2013

You Have to Live Honest~ Bob Dylan So I had a long conversation with my dad today–he was on his second Mike’s Hard Lemonade (or was it third) and was a little mellow and a little nostalgic, and he remembered some of his best moments as a nurse–and as a would-be patient–and I was reminded… Read More
