A (very!) long overdue update.

Monday, August 25th, 2014

This post is thanks to Ani Bolton, who tagged me in a blog hop. Thanks, Ani, for giving me the kick to finally pay some attention to my poor neglected blog! If you have a chance, be sure to check out Ani’s book Steele and Song. It’s a fabulously inventive, thoughtful, thrilling, exciting, steampunk romance/adventure. […]

Coming this summer . . . .

Sunday, April 21st, 2013

I’ve had some lovely inquiries lately about what I’m working on next. So . . . . This is a working cover, so still subject to change– but I was too excited not to share! With any luck, it should be available this summer at book retailers everywhere.

Barnacles and Swiss Cheese, or How to Cook a Squash in 5 Easy Steps, or Why I’m Glad My Husband Works from Home

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

I love to cook recipes with winter squash–butternut, acorn, spaghetti squash; we’re big fans of them all. But I hate hate hate trying to hack the things open so that I can cook them. The skins are so tough, the knife slips and slides . . . anyway, that’s why I was delighted when I […]

Happiness Comes

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Happiness is a choice. That’s what I always tell my girls. You cannot sit in a grumpy huddle, waiting for the world to make you happy. By all means, change the world–but when you can’t change the world, change your attitude. Or in other terms, Baby girl, I say to my oldest when she groans […]

Sunday Smiles

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Since the miscarriage happened on a Sunday, Sundays have been kind of hard days to get through lately. It shouldn’t really make a difference, but somehow it’s hard not to keep re-living the memories of that day. So this Sunday, I was in the car with my 3 year old, and suddenly she stared asking […]

Sad News

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Apart from the odd story about my children, I tend to keep my personal life mostly separate both from my professional one and from this blog. But I have at the moment what feels like about six thousand unanswered e-mails from readers piled up in my in-box, a huge number of which are inquiries about […]

On Strong Heroines and Girly Girls

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

My older girl (age 6) is now at a point where we’re reading real chapter books together. Literally together, actually–she reads 1 paragraph per page. But anyway, as you might expect, I LOVE this part of our time together. I (obviously) love reading, love a good story, and getting to share books with my girl […]

A Thanksgiving Post

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

So, Monday night of this week, I was having kind of a sucky evening. I won’t bore anyone with details, but it was nothing life-changing or tragic, just . . . sucky. And then I watched this week’s episode of Castle–and emerged an hour later, completely cheered-up and smiling. The episode (titled After Hours) was […]

Princess Mama

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

I have a ring, a $5 cubic zirconia ring that I wear exclusively because it is (along with the emergency mini-boxes of raisins and sticks of sugar-free gum in my purse) part of my bag of tricks for when I’m stuck in traffic or waiting in line with my girls. Look! You can wear my […]

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

I was thrilled to be asked to take part in a roundtable discussion with Patrice Hannon and Tracy Kiely, two fellow writers of Jane Austen-inspired works as part of the Austenesque Extravaganza going on now. We had an e-mail conversation about the roles of women in Jane Austen’s novels, which you can read below. Part […]
