This post contains a shameless plug for my new children’s picture book…


Something DUSTY is going on!


Head over to my Facebook page for the details.

I am offering a special Easter GIVEAWAY. You can enter for the chance to win The Legend of Dust Bunnies, a Fairy’s Tale and an official Dust Bunny adoption kit. In this book, dust fairies come out at night and create all sorts of messes in our homes. The naughty nymphs hold crumb-spitting contests and fire soot from their slingshots. And they have a “fairy” good time doing it!

I’ve been running on fumes for a while now.  But, today, I have officially hit a wall.  I cannot think of anything to write.

The gears have ground to a halt.


If I’m a good girl, maybe Santa will bring back my mojo…


In the meantime, I’ll take this time to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  May your wheels keep turning!

This is Midas.  Midas does not like it when his mom dresses him in a Christmas one-sie.

This is Izzie.  She is neither in favor nor opposed to wearing onesie’s or donning any other “gay apparel” at Christmas-time.

Sadly, Christmas is not the only time I subject them to this…
