Armchair Activism Works!

Posted Jan 4 2012

The heroine of my Death and Taxes series, IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway, has a soft spot for animals.  I admit this personality trait is a more than a bit autobiographical.  The great thing about the internet is that it has made it so easy and quick to be an armchair advocate for animals.  And […]

Win Big!

Posted Dec 28 2011

My hubby and I just returned from an overdue 20th anniversary celebration at the Chocktaw Casino in Oklahoma.  We didn’t bring much cash home, but we did return with a small soap carved in the shape of a buffalo.  It’s only fair that after years of being exploited by the white man’s greed, the Native […]

Prolific Writer!

Posted Dec 22 2011

With the death of Kim Jong Il, my Christmas shopping list has become shorter.  But as a writer, I have to admit I’m disappointed he’ll no longer be around since I’d hoped to ask him how he wrote 1,500 books in three years.  What could his secret be?  Perhaps it’s because he never had to take potty breaks […]

The Tree is Trimmed!

Posted Dec 11 2011

Got the tree and yard decorated yesterday.  Today we’ll put up the motion-activated singing Santa, which the dogs love to stand in front of and bark at, which activates the singing, which activates the dogs, which activates the singing . . . it’s going to be a LOUD day!  Hope your holiday preparations are going […]

Haha! Our terrier mix and shepherd mix are certainly selective, too. They hear "treat" without fail, but "down" or "no!" don't always register. Raggs is such a cute name!

Reggie certainly looks happy! My own dog, Raggs, has "selective" hearing--and he's not well trained. But. Our dogs are family and we do love them.

Thanks, Barbara! I wish I could write faster, too! My ideas are backing up in my head. : ) I wish my brain had a USB port where I could automatically download the stories from my mind to the page. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! I'm hard at work on the second one, A Trip with Trouble.
  Barbara
I LOVED getaway with Murder. The second book can't be published soon enough. Can you write any faster? ;-)
  Diane Kelly
Thanks so much, Gerrie! So glad you enjoyed the book, and your kind words put a big smile on my face. The second book in the series, A Trip with Trouble, will release next fall. I'm looking forward to it, too!
