After 40 + books as a published author I can tell you that I have researched a
many and varied range of topics. Most of them interesting, gritty, hard hitting
things. Just off the top of my head I can list a bunch of them - how to separate
conjoined twins joined at the head, heritage listings, shipwrecks, horrifying
disfiguring diseases, autopsy procedures, prosthetics, football stuff (shudder),
box jellyfish stings, earthquakes, eye conditions, the sex life of Read More...

Whenever I read a book in which the heroine is perfectly beautiful and slim yet
curvy yet can pack away a bacon double cheeseburger, I sigh a little. Yes, yes,
there are many beautiful people with hummingbird-like metabolisms, but Iím not
one of them.
I like reading about a person who has some of the same wee insecurities I do.
Positive self-esteem can be a daily battle. Some days, I look in Read More...

I think most people have some moment in their life, especially during childhood,
where they felt everything was just right. Maybe they didnít realize it at the
time. Maybe the realization came later in life. When things got rough, they
looked back and said, ďMan, I miss those days.Ē
Enter me between the ages of 5 and 8. These years were my golden years, where I
lived with my family in the Dallas suburbs Read More...

Have you ever gone to a fancy restaurant and ordered dessert first?
About a year ago, my husband took me to Commanderís Palace
for dinner. Known for its flowers, splendid food, and wine, the restaurant is a
landmark in the Garden District of New Orleans. Weíd been before, and each visit
is a treat.
But this time was extra special. We were celebrating our Read More...
Iíve lived around lakes my entire life. As a child, a big treat was going to one
of the parks, splashing in the water and playing in the sand. I love the water,
the sparkles of the sun reflecting off the surface, the holiday atmosphere of
the shore. But Iíd never been to the ocean.
I was an adult before I ever made it to the coast of the Atlantic. And I was Read More...

Have you ever been on a blind date? Or better yet, have you ever signed up on
one of those online dating sites? Itís nerve-wracking wondering who is going to
show up to meet you. What if heís a complete nasally voiced nerd? Or scary? Or
drop-dead gorgeous? Would you feel like youíve hit the jackpot? Or would you
think, this guy is way out of my element, beyond my Read More...
My name is Blaire and Iím a bookaholic. I will read anything. Romance, science
fiction, magazines. Anything. Everything. As a child, the only time I didnít
have a book in my hand was at meal time. I had a mother who believed in three
squares and meaningful conversation so I was prohibited from bringing my book to
the table. With no story to escape into, I resorted to reading food labels. If

Iím never sure how I feel about the changing of the seasons. Where I grew up, in
the tropics, we had the rainy seasons (traditionally March and October),
hurricane season (July to October) and then a very brief cooler period around
the end of December. That was it. Now, living in Canada, I find myself
alternately looking forward to the next season and rueing the passage of the one
before. Well, except for winter Read More...
The title alone should tell you that Book #2 in the Italian Kitchen

SOUP MURDER, features a wedding. And that um, other thing that tends to be

soup?) However, I did have the good taste to wait until after the reception to

Youíre sitting in a coffee shop, trying to write, when a man walks in alone. He
orders a simple cup of Joe and takes a seat at a bistro table, his back to the
wall, and pulls out an impossibly thin computer. Heís absorbed in his work, only
occasionally taking his eyes off the screen long enough to sweep the coffee
shop, looking for . . . what?
So much for getting any work done, right Read More...

Harlequin has released my first "unofficial" trilogy 8.12.2014 as ebooks (all
platforms)! I was the creator of the 3-book series concept in the 1980's but it
took writing two series (and no reader ever knew they were connected because the
publisher didn't believe a writer could write 3 books in a row). Now, Harlequin
is bringing them out with new covers. RED TAIL, is book 1, DARE TO LOVE, is Read More...
