Vibrant

Recently I took part in a writing contest to honor and support Sue Vincent. 99 words in response to this photo and ‘Hidden.’ We’ve lost Sue from this world now, but I love that my poem in her honor was named, Vibrant. That’s the exact word I would use to describe her unique and amazing…

You Think You Know a Person…

My petticoat muse has taken quite a turn. No sooner did I finish Miss Livingstone Book III: Dreams Key and set the Release and Launch for December 21st and she kicked back and quit helping me!“It’s the holidays,” she says. “I’m getting a makeover and chillaxing until the virtual parties arrive.”“It’s time for copious reading…

An A-Musing Offer

Did you miss me? I was stuck with my nose to the grindstone with my Miss Liv Adventures story muse sitting on my back. She pushed me through to proofing the first print copy of Book III: Dreams Key. And I’ll admit her thick petticoats spread over me were warm when summer waned… But when…

I’m here to Eat Crow

Hello my fabulous readers and fans of Miss Liv Adventures. I’m here to admit defeat on releasing book III by the end of summer. I devoted every spare minute I could see straight, but the edit rolls on. It took me a while to gather courage to face you, and to quit pretending summer could…

Liars and Thieves – Recommended Read – by D. Wallace Peach

It’s my  pleasure to present and recommend the New Release, Liars and Thieves by superb author, D. Wallace Peach. I came across her blog Myths of the Mirror a few years ago and was astounded by the depth and quality of her writing. I’ve since read four of her novels (I’ll read them all as…

Chantiki’s Boudoir – Esteemed Guest

New Release! I’m honored to have my personal favorite short story, “The Fickle Face of Time” featured in Victoria Bastedo’s Vintage Ladies Magazine, Chantiki’s Boudoir. It’s a tale of vexing vixens, beguiling beauties and the gentleman caught in their spell.  (Who just might be one of our Mr. Worthingtons!) Originally written from the photo prompts…

I’m Glad We Have Each Other

It’s been a bit tough to post lately. There’s been so much uncertainty here in my home state of Washington, and when we went on lockdown with nearly everything closed, it was as if a weight hung over my head. But things are looking up a bit, and we’re adjusting to our ‘new normal’. And…

A Little Drama

I took time out from editing to attend ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ at our local theatre Valley Center Stage .  I’m always amazed at the imaginative sets and acting talent that come through this theatre. This near life-sized train engine wall mural, with actual lights embedded, greeted patrons as we entered, setting the stage…

A Glowing Opportunity

Mt. Si glowed gorgeously out my window all day today, matching my mood. I’ve been a bit down about the delays on Book III’s final edit. Though I’m determined and marching forward to complete and publish it as soon as it’s brilliant – or at least up to Miss Livingstone’s particular standards. But today I…

The Mermaid and the Bear – Book Review

I don’t often review books on Miss LiV Adventures, but The Mermaid and the Bear, by Ailish Sinclair, may be of interest to many of my readers due to its genre and style. I’ve also enjoyed following this author’s blog, ailishsinclair.com and you may too! REVIEW: I teetered between 4 and 5 stars, but decided…
