Writers love getting feedback from readers. Here’s a funny message I found in my email inbox this morning: I’m hooked! My house looks like dukie and it’s all your fault- thanks! It made my day to know she’s decided to read my book instead of cleaning!Read More»

I was chosen as Humor Writer of the Month by the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop! Hooray! See the details at: http://humorwriters.org/category/humor-writer-of-the-month/ I’m so honored!

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.
I LOVED getaway with Murder. The second book can't be published soon enough. Can you write any faster? ;-)
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!
