This year has seemed to fly by. January didn't start well with losing two of our fur family within weeks of each other. The house was too quiet and sad. So in March, we brought home new babies - Quinn and Dexter. They are the bright spots in our day, even when we're cleaning up or replacing things they chewed up or on. My husband keeps reminding me that they're puppies still. About fifty pounds (together) of puppy. The picture above was when they first came home. We have rea
I'm on a no-travel, no-event month. July usually has a few trips in there for me and there's a few conferences I wanted to attend, but I decided to take a Lynn month. We spent the 4th with friends and family and a few strays down at the cabin. Quinn and Dexter got to play in the water at the spillway for the dam. We had fireworks. And a few adult beverages. Last week I compressed my work week so I could finish a proposal for a secret project. I'm so in love with this story al
Some of you know I had breast cancer in 2007. It's part of my author story since having it really kicked me in the butt to start living the life I wanted, including writing. Well, I've been in remission since after getting the trifecta - surgery, chemo, and radiation, but since it was so advanced they kept me on the no cancer pills past the ten years. Last year I had to cancel several appearances due to a hysterectomy that was possibly caused by the anti cancer pills. They sw
I've started writing the next book in the Farm to Fork series. I love visiting home with Angie and Felicia. With the carnival and the state fair going on, you know there's going to be excitement. But when you mix in a Top Chef style restaurant wars competition, the kitchens are hotter than the late August Idaho summer sun. I'm working with my agent on a couple of changes in my writing career. Hold on for more information, I'll share as soon as the ink's dry. But just between

So much going on this week. But first, I wanted to wish you a very, merry holiday season. I love this time of year when I can reflect back on 2018 and forward to 2019. It's like we all take a pause, a breath between the two years. Grateful for the year behind and hopeful for the year ahead, I'm excited that you're part of my life. Kensington is giving away 100 review copies for One Potato, Two Potato, Dead, book 3 of the Farm to Fork series. As of today, we're at 362 entries.
Is it just me or does it feel like this year has rushed by...I'm taking a long winter break from the day job starting next Friday and I've got so much to do before I can even start. But first, what have I done this year? I released three full size cozy mysteries along with three Tourist Trap novellas. Two of those novella's (A Deadly Brew and Santa Puppy, hit the USA Today list on release week.) I've written the other three novellas, a new Farm to Fork Mystery, a Tourist Trap
I love October. One - It's my birthday month. I think as you hit a certain age you should get to celebrate the entire month. :) Two - It's beautiful walking weather. Well, except for today when it's supposed to be 90 degrees. Three - It feels like the start of a new year. Probably because we were trained to start the new school year. I've got three books to finish between now and December 31st, so I've got plenty to keep me busy. Four - We can have campfires at the cabin with
