It’s Great to Travel, but it’s Great to Come Home, too

day1_16 (Large)Hey y’all!

It’s been a busy couple of months, between my horrible concussion in July, the holidays, then a last-minute trip to Grand Cayman with my husband in January … and spring break with our 15 year old last week to Belize. Oh, my, I could totally live in Belize. For real. But I’m finally feeling like my mind is back in the right place, my concentration is mostly back to normal, and the stories in my mind are begging to be told. All in all, it’s a great place to be.

I thought you might like to see some of the images from my trip to Belize. If you’re interested in the full stories, and the captions to give you a sense of story and place, go to my other blog … my secret squirrel Clark Kent blog …
The Doctor is IN.

Check out my interview with @JayRequard

It’s not everyday that I get to sit down with a SciFi & Fantasy author to chat, people. But I had a really great time talking to new author, Jay Requard, on his blog, Sit. Write. Bleed. Rest assured: I only sat and wrote … no bleeding, thank goodness.

sit-write-bleed

Jay’s first story will be released in an anthology during the summer called The Big Bad: An Anthology of Evil. I will congratulate him, perhaps share a glass of champagne (or, in his case, a mug of mead), read it and wince, and pray for no nightmares.

Check out the interview on Sit. Write. Bleed, follow Jay on Twitter, and check out his blog when you get a chance. He’s an interesting fella.

Are You Ready for a 1 Night Stand?

I’m really excited to announce that I have a short story under contract with Decadence Publishing‘s 1 Night Stand series. It’s called The Great Outdoors, and will be out in 2012. Here’s the description:

Tallulah Murphy is a busy woman. As the newly appointed Director of Education for the Atlanta Art Museum, she has a thousand and one things to do on any given day. Dating is not high on that list; in fact, it’s not even on the radar. Three hundred miles away in Charleston, South Carolina, Lieutenant Mitchell Weaver is gearing up for his promotion to be the youngest police chief in the city’s history. And unfortunately, as a prominent city official with all eyes watching his every move, a quality date seems untenable. But when good friends and good fortune set Tallulah and Mitch on a fateful adventure with Madame Evangeline’s high-end dating service, 1 Night Stand, they may just find that a little matchmaking magic can reset their spirits of adventure, and open their hearts and minds to the possibility of love.

The Optimistic Gardener is well underway to becoming a wonderful contemporary romantic adventure! I’ve planted the seeds, and can now begin the editing and polishing phases. Who knows, maybe this time next year it’ll be on the shelves!

I’m celebrating my NaNoWriMo win with a little Wonder Woman Theme Music. Enjoy!
