The Grand Finale

RJ Julia is to books as Nordstrom’s is to shoes.  (My husband gets very nervous whenever I type a sentence like that, but it is true.) It’s filled top to bottom with interesting, intelligent people talking about books you never knew you wanted but suddenly just have to have, and I can never go home…

Pictures, As Promised

I was a reader well before I was a writer, and curling up with a good book is still one of my favorite activities.  I usually have a stack of books scattered around the house.  (And now that my daughter is just like me, those stacks are precariously high.)  If I had to choose between…

Warning: Graphic Picture!

I know, I’m really stretching out my five minutes of fame here, aren’t I?  It is just that it’s been a little chaotic lately.  For those of you have e-mailed me, Harley is fine, truly.  His ear still splits open and bleeds, but I think it bothers me much more than it bothers him. And…

An Earful

Good morning!  (See, my early tv show experience has made me perky before noon!)  I have lots more to tell you about last week, but today I am over at the fabulous Tartitude for the second part of my interview with Jan O’Hara.  There’s lots there about Harley too, and a cute picture in which…

Wounded! (And Last Week, Part 1)

Poor Harley came back from the kennel missing a small chunk of his ear.  Apparently he was rough-housing and it got a little too … rough. It’s very strange — he’s the third dog I’ve had of this breed (he’s a mix) and every single one has wound up missing a section of his ear…

A BIG THANK YOU

Last week was a crazy week.  I went places I do not usually go, and did things I do not usually do, and I will write about them (and post pictures) over the next few days.  But before I do that, I first have to say an enormous THANK YOU to every single person who…

Where You'll Find Me

My cyber self and I are both home, and happy about it.  (Not that gadding about hasn’t been lovely, but truly, I’m a homebody.)  Tonight though, I’ll be reading and signing books at the Andover Book Store in Andover, MA at 7 p.m..  There will be chocolate cookies with two solid pounds of chocolate in…

Tart and Sweet

My cyber self continues to get around — would that I could log frequent flier points for these trips and escape the frozen tundra!!!  Today you can find me over at Tartitude, a blog I love to read.  Jan O’Hara asks the best questions of anyone — her interviews are always insightful.  (And boy, being…

You Can Run, But You Can't Hide

I am one of those annoying people for whom nothing is ever good enough.  YOU may be fine, but I am always too fat, too short, too shy, too whatever.  I’ll never parent well enough, run fast enough, or write successfully enough to be happy with myself. And nothing you can say will make me…

FlyBy

Shhh.  I’m still not here.  Instead, I am over at one of my very favorite places on the internet — author Joshilyn Jackson’s blog.  Stop over and say hi, then take a look at her post from a few days ago called “I Pinch” — my son now walks around quoting it.
