Am I A Picky Romance Reader?

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been called picky. I have always been a voracious reader. From my earliest memories I read whatever I could get my hands on, but I always loved romance the very best. I read really worn Barbara Cartland romances at my childhood library and scoured the shelves for anything… Continue Reading

Wild Woman Giveaway!

When I first met my DH, he was a hottie who rode a motorcycle. Who wouldn’t want to date the guy sunning on his bike? I loved riding with him. I’m big into vehicular speed and he’s very physically-adept (very kinesthetic). It helps that he’s also highly alert and doesn’t ride stupid, which is a… Continue Reading

She’s as bewildered by the average individual as most people are with… Continue Reading

Blue Collar Boys

I’ve got a thing for blue collar, working dudes. This may seem odd, considering that my own dear husband is a therapist, as I am. A professional with a degree and everything, but he’s not the average white collar man. We fell for each other very young, when we were both just out of high… Continue Reading

Just Not Average…

There’s no denying that I don’t fit in any specific box. Let’s just start off with the obvious–I am a 56 year old woman who gleefully drives a yellow sports car. To give you the full picture, I must point out that this isn’t a sunny yellow, fun Miata. Nothing against that car, but I drive… Continue Reading
