I’m Humor Writer of the Month!
Posted Nov 9 2011
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! I loved Erma Bombeck’s writing. She managed to find humor in the ironies – and in some cases drudgery – of daily life. I often think of one or another of her humor pieces when I find myself in similar situations with my children and family. Last year I had the privilege of judging a high school UIL contest in which one of the contestants recited an Erma Bombeck piece. I loved it, of course! And I was glad to know her pieces are being enjoyed by yet another generation. So much of her humor is timeless.

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!
