Gail Ingis | A Christmas Concert to Remember

On the first December Sunday, December 3, Tom and I took the 90 minute drive up the Palisades, across the Bear Mountain Bridge, around the bending roads and up the hills, to the West Point Cadet Chapel in West Point, NY. West Point is actually the name of the town, the home of the United Read More...

Kathy Lyons | Holiday Rules ... or a new quiz for you!

New Rule: No Holidays allowed until I finish dying my Easter Eggs. I used to love holidays. Easter eggs, Halloween costumes, even flag day was fun. But since my kids have left home (Yippee, empty nesting!), I can't be bothered to notice the passing of days. Well, that's not exactly true. I count days by words written and deadlines missed or (fingers crossed) made. So now that we've Read More...

Gail Ingis | Reaching for your own star

As a kid, my creativity took the form of re-creating. I took clothes apart and remade them into something different. I turned my mother's gown into a dress. Mom was horrified. I also took apart radios and clocks and put them back together. Dad was supportive. I sometimes needed his help. I also began drawing when I was a kid. I drew faces and comic book characters, like Wonder Woman. Everything around me Read More...

Dani Pettrey | Vulnerable

I hope you had a good week. Unfortunately, I spent mine sick with a head cold, sinus infection and fun upper respiratory infection.

Why did I share that Read More...

Gail Ingis | Fancy A Cup Of Tea?

Many blue moons ago I had the great pleasure of having High Tea at the Helmsley Palace in New York City. Or so I thought!

Fascinated with the ritual of "tea time", I explored the history and found that Read More...

O is for Obstacles

I chose the word obstacles for our letter today, because let's face it, we all encounter our fair share of obstacles. Whether it's an issue with our kid's homework or teacher, an issue on the job, a family issue, a spiritual issueĖlife is full of issues and obstacles, but it's how we react to the obstacles that matters. It's a great idea to just weave around the obstacle and Read More...

Gals, Gowns, and Handsome Men by Jade Lee / Kathy Lyons

Last week, I had the pleasure of being an author at the Historical Romance Retreat in Spokane, WA. Delilah Marvelle and Renťe Bernard did an incredible job. I thought I was way cool in a teal blue Regency gown created by Victoria Vane and a costume from the Titanic movie. I was put to shame by the fabulous outfits so many women wore. And as for the men, oh la la, they looked quite Read More...

Guess what I did last week?

Some conferences are quiet affairs where I get to hang with friends, talk books, and laugh for hours. Readers and 'Rita's is one such conference. There's always something going on, but I never feel frenzied unless I'm dancing with a hot cover model. Other conferences are wild fan events where I'm overwhelmed and lost. And given how much of an extrovert I am, that's saying something. Guess how last week Read More...
