Good To Know

1.) I started The Deed (my first romantic comedy and the first book to be published) a year after my mother's death. I was very close to my mother and the year following her death was about the most miserable time imaginable. But then I decided I was tired of being down and unhappy, and looked around for something to lift my spirits and make me laugh. When I couldn't find anything, I decided to sit down and write my own. It worked! Emmalene and Amaury's antics in The The Deed had me chuckling as I wrote.
2.) I met my husband in New York in July 2003. I was there because of the RWA conference and he was there on vacation. The first day there we kept running into each other and chatting in front of the hotel, and then he asked to join our group (it was very brave of him. He was the lone male amongst six or seven women, lol). He's a Brit and I'm Canadian and the first two months of our relationship were conducted by phone as well as over the internet. Our first date was a week in New York in September, followed by three weeks in England. He then came to Canada in both November and December, the first time to propose and the second time for Christmas with my family and then to take me back to England with him for New Years. I lived in Northern England for two years. We married in New York and now live in Canada.
3.) I was writing about my husband before I met him. Single White Vampire came out in September 2003 and I took a copy with me to England when I went for the three weeks. I walked into my now-hubby's house to find at least six months worth of mail unopened and stacked up on a shelf inside the front door. When I stopped dead, eyes going wide with shock and asked "My God. That's mail. You don't open your mail?" He looked embarrassed and muttered some explanation about bills automatically being paid by the bank so no need to open those and everything else was unsolicited and he couldn't be bothered. When I burst out laughing, he started to frown and said "What?" My response was to dig out the copy of Single White Vampire and hand it over with the suggestion he read it. The mail thing wasn't the only similarity he had to Lucern Argeneau. There are many more and when he sat down to read the book, he kept stopping and turning a rather startled and even suspicious gaze my way and muttering that this sounded familiar" or that did. I had to point out that it really was coincidence, that I had written that story at least nine months before meeting him. LOL.

    Very Cute.

    If you are looking for a cute, light romance, this is it. It's romance with a twist of magic in it.

    Good read

    another twist on fairy godmothers and the assigned needy person. i enjoyed reading this and as it was a shorter story than i usually read. i do enjoy the makebelieve and what makes one question if each of us haven't had the pleasure of such a spirit.

    Warpaw....Leopaw.....Battlepaw

    Battlepaw speaks up for her siblingz. "Oay. Here is some info. I am good at climging and tactis in the trees. I am also good in battle for techinque. Warpaw is the smallest. She is fast and cunning. She can think up great battle strategies. She is an excellent hunter as she is very small an light. She is good in battle for swiftness and keeping the enemy on their feet. Leopaw being the largest is a very good fighter. She is excellent at using her strengh to both stay on her feet and win. She also has the keenest sense of smell and sight." Battlepaw looks at her siblings. Warpaw nods for she knows that isbwhat she is good at. Leopaw nods to sad that she is too large for stealth. Warpaw and Battpaw are good but she is not.
