Reading the Signs (from Pizzas to Papas to Puppy Dog Tales)

confusing road signsA few days ago my daughter was driving her daughter (my pretty, precocious, learning-to-read 6-year-old granddaughter, that is) to ballet class, but the little girl suddenly shouted “STOP!” to her mom, pointing a finger up as if to the heavens.

My daughter put on the brakes, frantically asking, “What’s the matter?”

“We have to go to PaPa’s house,” S insisted in her 1st grade know-it-all tone.Papa Ginos, pizza Read More…

DESIRE!

Twin Desires, romantic suspenseA wish, a craving, a yearning, a passionate need. What’s your desire?

I have many, but one of my aspirations is that you read and enjoy my e-book that’s driven by desire.

Twin Desires is romantic suspense that intertwines a web of murder, deceit, and intrigue. All spurred by desire, which creates:

Greed Twin Desires, romantic suspense

Love

Lust

Jealousy

Loneliness

All of these emotions lead to a desire for good, or for bad.

For good, I’m making Twin Desires available on Kindle for a 75% reduction – only 99 cents – from Monday, January 19 (starting at 1 p.m. EST) through Thursday, January 22.

Some of us are happy

Love Shenanigans

http://pacman.wikia.com/wiki/Ms._Pac-ManShenanigans – silly or high-spirited behavior; mischief.

One of my blogging buddies told on himself right before Christmas – his wife likes her holiday decorations just a “certain way,” but this year, while she was working late, he put up the Santa Clauses and angels, the holly and trimmings, his way, before she came home.

Expecting a reprimand when she walked through the door, he was greeted instead with relief and a huge hugging thanks.

A successful shenanigan!

I commented on heylookawriterfeller’s blog that his shenanigan was successful because his wife loved him.

He commented back that “Love is all about putting up with shenanigans.”

I replied, “Love IS shenanigans.”

And then immediately I heard angelic harp music in the background of my brain as goose bumps traveled up my spine, and my soul got hit with an ‘aha’ moment. Read More…
