The booth I signed my book in seemed to be working very well. People watching is fascinating! Having authors signing books is a big draw, even if customers [...]

Voice recognition software for writing

I’m using voice recognition software! It’s about time. Some things take me forever to figure out. In the past several years I’ve been more aware of the strain that writing can put on my wrists. My wrists will often get numb at night and I know that’s a danger sign. I’d do the stretching exercises [...]

A Sting or a Tasty Treat? You won’t know until you JUMP!

My cats teach me lessons all the time – yes they do. We have a black cat named Rama (or Dyson, after the vacuum cleaner). Dyson is extremely athletic and will jump straight into the air (as high as four feet up) for a bug. Flying insects are visible to Dyson through our French doors. [...]
