Re: My Tempting Highlander (4:03pm March 3, 2016):

Soo many to choose from - I think I would start with
Ancient Egypt then move onto Ancient Rome. Could you
imagine visiting the library of Alexandria.

Re: Linny?s Sweet Dream List (6:34pm January 22, 2016):

I would love someone who loves to travel, good sense of
humor and a love for the movies

Re: Montana Wild (8:15pm January 21, 2016):

It was an opportunity at a better life and better jobs -
I was 4 and my parents but everything into our car and
moved two thousand miles not knowing anyone in our new
city or having jobs to go to. In 48 hours my dad had a
better paying job than he left and we lived in a newer,
bigger home too.

Re: From One Night to Wife (6:36pm September 5, 2015):

My dad - he can fix, grow, drive etc. anything!

Re: The Highlander's Bride (6:34pm September 5, 2015):

I don't like weak "help me" women, but even strong women
sometimes need a hand and don't even know it

Re: A Ghostly Demise (8:24pm August 30, 2015):

Retirement - travel, drive future grand children and
current children crazy, maybe finally write down all the
crazy stories running around in my head!

Re: Bring Me To Life (8:20pm August 30, 2015):

Sorry I don't know any of the names you mentioned but I'm
not great with names maybe if you had mentioned some of
their previous work - movies I never forget!

Re: Food Baby (8:15pm August 30, 2015):

I can only get my caffene carbonated! That said I prefer
Coke to Pepsi ( too sweet). I have a bought 3 cans a day

Re: Darkest Misery (7:29pm August 14, 2015):

Saucy attitude, sexy outfits and cool weapons - what a
life!

Re: The Bones Will Speak (7:18pm August 14, 2015):

I love forensic mysteries! More science the better!
Romance is OK but I'm more interested in the mystery. It
takes a very strong person to sit each day in a courtroom
and listen to the horrors visited on others.

Re: Fudging the Books (9:45pm August 5, 2015):

I love visiting Hawaii! I've taken my children twice and
it still is their favorite place even over Disneyland and
Disney world

Re: Red Blooded (9:43pm August 5, 2015):

A grade 12 senior when I was just in grade ten. He looked
like an ad for the ski patrol - lots of turtle neck shirts
- we all thought he was very hot.

Re: Midnight on the Mississippi (9:40pm August 5, 2015):

I would love to retire to the island of Oahu, outside
Honalulu of course. Warm breezes, year round flowers so
much better than the snows of Canada

Re: Once Upon a Heist (9:02pm July 17, 2015):

Fairy tales gloss over some very scary themes - I like it
when they are rewritten for modern times.

Re: As Waters Gone By (8:58pm July 17, 2015):

No I don't, it doesn't feel like my thing

Re: Pretty Dark Sacrifice (8:57pm July 17, 2015):

Jared Leto

Re: The Empress Game (8:54pm July 17, 2015):

Battlestar Galatica - the original from the late 70s

Re: The Fire Children (8:52pm July 17, 2015):

My "Little house" series are very ratty and several of my
Robert Heinliens'

Re: The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook (4:24pm March 30, 2015):

Pie - any kind of pie. Between my husband and son, no pie stands a chance!

Re: Assault And Pepper (5:23pm March 3, 2015):

My favorite spot is snuggled into my lazy boy recliner with a nice fuzzy blanket.

Re: At Wolf Ranch (6:48pm February 26, 2015):

Their sense of honor, the sway in their walk and how protected they make you feel. And the jangle of their spurs doesn't hurt either!

Re: As Gouda as Dead (1:02pm February 6, 2015):

My favorite event? Our family vacation each year sometimes its very special - we went to Egypt last summer and sometimes its simpler - the year before was Mount Rushmore. I also try to learn something new wherever we go and of course, pass it on to my children.

Re: He Belongs to Me (1:58pm June 16, 2013):

I was trying to gain the acceptance of my soon to be husband's family. The gunshot rang out at 7am, I ran down stairs was handed a skinning knife and told to go remove the hide from the cow that had just been shot. I survived that then had to track a wounded deer through the fall woods (it had been shot by a bow and arrow) and wade a nearly frozen creek in my barefeet. I was wondering what the heck I had gotten myself into! I was a city girl but my dad grew up on a farm so he had passed on his wisdom to me. We have been married for 21 years and the road is never easy but it is definitely interesting.

Re: Opposing Forces (9:21pm June 15, 2013):

Reunion stories - I travel for work, so every time I come home is a reunion story. My children are tweens but they still miss me and I am surprised at how much they change everytime I come home. And also, a little saddened I wish I could freeze time every time I have to leave.

Re: Summer at Mustang Ridge (9:14pm June 11, 2013):

It sounds like everyone has such wonderful food traditions. My family's isn't food but a necklace. My grandfather got a amethyst necklace to propose to my grandmother with. Before he could she took ill with rheumatic fever and not expected to live. He went to go and pick up the necklace from the post master, hoping it would help her, but the post office burned to the ground. The necklace was destroyed. Someone in their home town wrote the T.Eaton company and told them the story - they sent out a replacement right away. It would be two years before my grandparents married but she wore her necklace that day. Each of their seven daughters wore it on their days, I wore it on mine and my daughter will one day wear it on hers. She will be the fourth generation and none of these marriages ended in divorce.

Re: Flirting with Disaster (4:06pm June 10, 2013):

Fatal flaw in a hero - cruelty, bigotry, uncaring. Who cares if you can bench press 350 if there is nothing but darkness upstairs. Give me a flawed smartie-pants any time.

Re: The Elephant Of Surprise (4:00pm June 10, 2013):

Keep up the original thinking! Movies that do not conform also do not do well here in North America whereas the lowest form of comedy is a block buster. I will have to keep an eye out for the Geography Club when it opens in Canada

Re: The Elephant Of Surprise (3:57pm June 10, 2013):


Re: Sweet Revenge (3:23pm June 4, 2013):

Self-made men are always more interesting! With a diamond in the rough you never know what you're going to get.

Re: It Had To Be You (2:43pm June 4, 2013):

I find music or background noise sets my reading pace. I also find it helps me focus exclusively on the material at hand.

Re: A Healing Heart (11:14pm May 21, 2013):

In my family my grandmother, her sisters and sister-in-laws, would get together and make quilts for the grandchildren. You would get one when married or turned 21 whichever came first. Now the elders of our family are all gone and no one makes quilts. Maybe I can convince my cousins to take up the torch for our children and future grandchildren

Re: When The Morning Glory Blooms (11:04pm May 21, 2013):

I lost a very dear friend, since grade 10, over opposing political views. Time nor distance had ever impacted or relationship and we had always openingly discussed all things but one day we butted heads over politics. She sent me an email that she never wanted to hear from me again. I cried for two days. It has been 5 years now and I still miss my friend

Re: Yesterday's Echo (5:01pm May 20, 2013):

Congratulations on your book. My biggest obsticle was fear - fear of getting behind on my bills, fear of letting my children down, fear of failing. But one day I said enough and enrolled to go back to school - and now I have a new career, I get to travel alot more and my kids are happier. Who could ask for more.

Re: Last Chance For Justice (5:27pm May 19, 2013):

Sorry but I prefer my reading fast paced. It doesn't need car chases and explosions but just simple old fashioned suspense. A well written who-dun-it any day.

Re: Past Due (9:28pm May 18, 2013):

Love yourself and those around you unconditionally. We are all imperfect and some days we just need a little leeway

Re: Seducing Charlotte (9:23pm May 18, 2013):

I prefer books that start with a bang - they get you hooked right away!

Re: Undone (6:23pm May 16, 2013):

I agree with all your qualities and would add smarts, honesty and respect both given and demanded of. Now if only we could find such a man in real life!

Re: Changing Lanes (6:03pm May 15, 2013):

I have changed Lanes - I left my well paying engineering job to go back to school and do something I feel benefits my community and the environment. Here it is 3 years later and I'm much happier, very proud of what I do, I travel a great deal which has put a bit of a strain on my marriage but we are working on it. Sometimes its not lanes that need changing but a full on U-turn that needed!

Re: Cybersp@ce (7:09pm May 14, 2013):

Its frightening how quickly we have become dependant on technology in our day-to-day lives. Your story idea sounds like a great read and maybe just a touch of warning not to put all our eggs in the technology basket?

Re: Voodoo For Two (7:05pm May 14, 2013):

My sister and I travel together (girl's only) about every 2 years. I would love to go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras! I know its not how the city is on a regular day but what fun! Did your air boat driver warn you to keep your mouth shut? Ours didn't and my sister thought she was going to choke to death on a bug! I would love to read your book and get a little voodoo magic in my life too.

Re: Mr. Perfect (7:47pm April 26, 2013):

I have about 2000 books in our family collection, we've just recently moved so now comes the weeding process. I'm trying to convince my children to give up books they have out grown. Now we just need to find a new used bookstore in our new city

Re: Honorable Rancher (7:40pm April 26, 2013):

Men of honor and dedication have always drawn me - in books and in life. I thought I had found just the right one for me but he couldn't measure up to his one standards.

Re: Speak No Evil (4:55pm April 18, 2013):

I've never had the opportunity to visit Charleston but I'm sure your book will paint a beautiful picture in my mind for me.

Re: The Summer He Came Home (4:53pm April 18, 2013):

Brian Adams, I have been to every concert held in Calgary and even had the pleasure to meet him once.

Re: A Method to Madness (5:02pm April 16, 2013):

Thank you for informing us about the purple gang - you didn't tell us why they called themselves The Purple gang? Sounds like an interesting book

Re: Guardian's Alliance (4:57pm April 16, 2013):

I hope you haven't given away all the plot twists! Can't wait to read it

Re: Lord of the Keep (9:39pm March 23, 2013):

Autograph! Autograph! I love a half naked man, well muscled of course, on the cover! Through on a kilt, piercing blue eyes and I'm done. I have a problem with the hair - these men are always done with long hair and I definately prefer short. I have bought a book because of the cover - Cinder. It shows a foot with a metal ankle inside, and I can relate I carry quite a bit of metal in mine also. So I bought the book to see what the story was like - now I'm waiting for book2.

Re: Nickeled-And-Dimed To Death (9:32pm March 23, 2013):

"Sigh", if I didn't believe in second chances my husband wouldn't have had a second chance at our first date. And we, wouldn't have two wonderful children and 21 years of marriage. Second chances can certainly bring wonderful things.

Re: Falling Into Paradise (8:32pm March 18, 2013):

Don't we all love bad boys! And no they never change which is why they never make good husbands. I keep trying to get my sister to give up her bad boy ways but she is sure she'll be able to change the next one.

Re: Buried In A Bog (8:26pm March 18, 2013):

I have not had the pleasure of travelling to Ireland but my sister has - she did the "Pubs of Ireland" tour! Its the only thing she can really remember well about her trip. I would like to see Ulster- which is where two sides of our family are from.

Re: Trouble In The Tarot (8:45pm March 16, 2013):

I like characters with a dry sense of humor which can be very handing when dealing with a murder, so yes to humor in mysteries!

Re: Her Knight's Quest (8:40pm March 16, 2013):

Secondary characters help the book "breath", it makes it more alive. Stories that only concentrate on the lead are very one dimensional and can be very hard to stay with. I love that you give your characters a "little rope" just to see what they will do with it! We need more writers like you.

Re: The Geek Girl And The Scandous Earl (9:13pm March 14, 2013):

Congratulations! I hope when my son is ready to take the big leap he finds someone as encouraging as your editor was. Right now though he's just happy letting friends and family enjoy his work. I hope you have a long and fufilling career.

Re: Assaulted Pretzel (10:56pm March 13, 2013):

I love the play on words in your titles! I'm always putting myself into roles I see on tv or in movies - especially mysteries. Things like how would I do this, would I do it the same or because of my past training and education would I do it differently

Re: The Blue-Ribbon Jalape?o Society Jubilee (11:47am March 7, 2013):

Sounds like my mom's home town - only spicier!

Re: The Survivor (11:31am March 7, 2013):

Keep your outside lights on- yes electricity can be expensive but so is
replacing your stuff. Keep plants trimmed back from doorways and
windows- no hiding spots please. Use wasp killer spray instead of mace-
it's perfectly legal to own, doesn't look out of place in a home our on a night
stand, shoots a continuous spray 3-4 ft instead of a fog like bear spray and
only fire for 2-3 secs then leave and take the can you can use it again to
save yourself. Bear spray is only good for an 8 sec burst

Re: Greta and the Goblin King (12:05pm February 24, 2013):

Spring, everything smells like its coming alive again. It helps me sweep away the wintery mental cobwebs.

Re: Scorned Justice (12:02pm February 24, 2013):

The ID channel with he show Scorned and as for a book, Erica Spindler has written several where revenge/scorn has driven the killer over the edge. I really enjoyed Last known victem.

Re: X Marks The Scot (6:39pm February 21, 2013):

My favorite bad boy was named James MacPherson a true Scottish rogue and all too real! If you ever have the chance to have a man whisper gaelic poetry in your ear, no man will ever measure in comparison. The book sounds great!

Re: Checkmate, My Lord (6:31pm February 21, 2013):

My favorite secondary character is Prim from the Hunger Games - she is definately the impetus for the main character!

Re: Murder Hooks a Mermaid (3:50pm February 17, 2013):

Top of my travel list is Egypt, besides the Moon, even with its current strife to stand at the foot of the pyramids or in the shadow of the sphinx would be magical. If you go to England and tour Stonehenge you can get a free special pass to walk among the stones during sunrise or sunset, you just write for the pass from the government. Safe travels!

Re: The Moses Quilt (11:31am February 16, 2013):

Unfortunately even today there still exists discrimination, you need ony look to our Aboriginal peoples. The color of their skin, the accent of their voices and all they seek is a better life for their children.Perhaps a new "Harriet Tubman" will rise up from their midst.
