Spec the Halls!

It’s never to early for Christmas, right? (Unless it attempts to encroach on Halloween, in which case, Christmas can go STICK IT.) But now that it’s almost December, it’s time to start thinking and planning those upcoming holiday festivities…and holiday gifts. Assuming you have money left over after purchasing a pair of earrings from Dixie Dunbar Studio, I have…

Enchanted Conversations

I had the good fortune of stumbling across a tweet a few months ago, advertising that Enchanted Conversations was accepting submissions for a “Little Red Riding Hood” themed anthology of fiction stories. It was a wonderful discovery, because not only did I have a new place to submit to, but they also have a bunch of great stuff in…

On the Importance of Turkeys

Thanksgiving weekend’s not over yet! And before it is, I have a quick message I would like to say to my beloved little sister, in front of the whole world.

And so I dub it the official Thanksgiving Day Song of 2012. Please feel free to share this love far and wide! I hope all of you in America have a wonderful…

So Much to be Thankful For

I am thankful for amazing sunsets that last for hours on long road trips. I have always loved sunsets, ever since I was a little girl taking pictures with her father’s ancient Minolta with the huge telephoto attachment. I am also thankful for all this fabulous photo technology at our fingertips so that we might share the beautiful visions…

The Grand Dame of Dragons

I want to read Dragonsong again, right now. Miss Anne was always in love with the Masterharper. So was I. Anne McCaffrey taught me many things. She taught me to believe in dragons. She taught me that I should have lots of sex while I’m still young and beautiful. She–through Andre Norton–gave me a talisman that I treasure to…

Designer Shoes

It was written in the stars. Always has been. I had my tarot told once at the Llewellyn booth at a Publisher’s Showcase. Scott laid all the cards on the table and stared at them a moment with that contemplative face all doctors make. Then he put his palms flat on the table, leaned over to me, and said:…
