A hearty thanks…

I love romance writers. The first time I went to a Toronto Romance Writers‘ meeting I was greeted with so much enthusiasm it was almost overwhelming. I’d never been in a room full of such supportive women before, so willing

Red Garnier: Not a Shampoo!

Back in 2007, I decided to get serious about my writing and joined the Toronto Romance Writers. While I was there, I met Wylie Kinson and started following her blog. One of the other regular commenters over there was today’s

To-Do List

Busy weekend

Note to self: do not drink a Hazelnut Coffee, and two diet Pepsi’s after 3 p.m. unless you’re willing to be wired until 5 a.m. Seriously! I’m exhausted – thanks to all that caffeine. I drove into Toronto yesterday for

Another obsession…

Wylie Kinson is running a contest to promote her upcoming release of Law of Averages. You have to submit a picture of yourself with an angel by May 8th. (Why an angel, I have no idea – I guess we’ll
