gizmo guy

I know I’m supposed to be the romance writer, but underneath his shy/quiet exterior, my husband is even more romantic. We’ve never been big on celebrating Valentine’s Day — for some reason his bosses always seem to manage to schedule him to be on a trip or having to work […]

Every day is Valentine’s Day

While I was running around from event to event in Kansas City, Gizmo Guy was left to fend for himself. Oh, he’d come with me, and made sure I stayed sane–and properly fed. Then on Saturday when I came into the room to change outfits and lay down on the […]

A real love letter…

I confess. I, uh, did the unthinkable today. When I woke up, Gizmo Guy was already up and downstairs having breakfast. I stumbled out of bed (mainly because Seamus was whining at me) and made my way downstairs where I collapsed on the couch beside GG. Now, on my best […]

Bad, Leah, BAD!

It’s been one of those days and it’s not yet 2 p.m. I’m working on two deadlines, one tomorrow, one for the end of the month, for two different books for two different publishers. So I’ve been repeating my “I’m on a deadline, do not disturb me on pain of […]

Shaking my fist at Mondays or we should have got ...

Look what my hubby brought home for me for our thirty fourth anniversary today. I’ve told him and told him and told him how much I LOVE getting flowers, but he rarely buys them for me because he says that’s such a cliched gift. Because he listened to me and […]

Thirty Fourth celebration of Five Six Seven Eight!

How the heck did it get to be Friday already? I seriously went through Wednesday thinking it was Tuesday — I didn’t discover my mistake until Thursday morning when Gizmo Guy set me straight. In addition to promoting Private Property, updating my website (I added a Hauberk Primer page), and […]

End of the Week round-up and some BSP

Yesterday my story Perfect Proposal released on Amazon and Smashwords, then this morning I was watching my favorite Breakfast Television show on a local channel and they were talking about how to propose and how not to.  For instance, never propose at another couple’s wedding.  They also suggested that you […]

What makes a proposal perfect?

One of the presents I gave my family this Christmas was my undivided attention for a couple of days. I stayed out of my office and away from my computer, only allowing myself to quick check my email on my phone while I baked lots of cookies, along with preparing the […]

Happy Holidays

Gizmo Guy and I have driven over 3500 miles. In ten days. We drove through seven States (twice) and are finally back home in Canada. While I loved the trip, I’ll be happy if I don’t have to get behind the wheel of the car for a while. Or eat […]

Off the road…

Which of course means Gizmo Guy and I had to stop and visit for a while 😀 We drove through four States within about an hour — from Pennsylvania, through Maryland, then West Virginia, and into Virginia. (Maryland and West Virginia are actually big states, but they each have tiny […]

Virginia is for Lovers

I’m running around trying to write while also preparing for my upcoming trip to North Carolina for the Writers’ Police Academy. Which means nothing is getting done. Or at least, it’s not getting done well. So while I try to figure out what the heck needs to be done/fixed, here’s […]

Friday Funny

I heard that saying about all men never progressing past the age of eight a while back and shared it with my husband who agreed wholeheartedly with it. This is a man who belches the alphabet and … well, I daren’t share what it’s like living in this testosterone-filled house. […]

All men are 8
