Do your job...or else!

I know I’m not the only one surprised at the piss-poor behavior we see from co-workers. It’s always the same people consistently late to work, or absent when things need to be done or when a customer needs help, all of the above. To our utter amazement it’s these same people who complain about their job, but do nothing in the way of looking for another job that would please them. At some point they even have the gall to ask for a raise, and then gripe to you when management denies them one.…

So Far Genre Fusion is Working for Me - a NaNoWriMo Tale of Success in Progress

Writing a story and touching on so many different genres has been both surprising and intoxicating as I’ve learned just how much I am capable of achieving when I put all my energy and skills into making it work. Drawing in romance while so much horror is taking place, then…

This is the End

It took more than a year, but finally we have. Olivia and I started this project when she was 8 years old. Next week, she turns 10. What a wonderful journey! I have loved sharing every minute of it with her. Who knows what comes next?

Adult Truth #3

“I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.”

Actually, these days, I wish I could nap and still have plenty of daylight left when I finally awaken. Or, if I’m really enjoying the night, that it could last longer. Day’s light and night’s dark don’t last long enough to suit my purposes.

Anyway, that’s philosophizing for another…

Book release for 'Who's Minding the Store?'

I announced on Monday the release of 'Who's Minding the Store?' It's my 2nd published book and I'm particularly proud of this work because it's something many of us live. Here's a review by Jeff Edwards, author of The Seventh Angel'.

 

"Imagine the sexy hilarity of Richard Hooker's M*A*S*H, the complex political intrigue of a classic Russian novel, and the sheer wackiness of the British sitcom ARE YOU BEING SERVED? Now, imagine that all of this high-octane…

NaNoWriMo - Half Way There

As I write this post I am feeling very happy. After a somewhat stilted and disjointed start to the month I managed to get my ass into gear and am now officially half way through my NaNoWriMo project. Hooray! Who knew I could magically find the time to write 25,011 words in just 14 days, complete with a demanding toddler in tow? Apparently I could, I did, and I am on track to succeed!

The novel is shaping up nicely, although my inner editor is already screaming that it is not good…

SLIGHTING THE HAND THAT FEEDS

I got wind of one of the most appalling comments written by an author I know. To paraphrase, she informed us all that “You can't teach an old dog new tricks,” and “All that Internet stuff is too new for me.” She went on to say her computer is for writing her manuscripts and research, that “Anything more is beyond me.”

The Dangers of Medical Radiation

Did you know that in many states, individuals can perform x-ray procedures and CT (CAT) scans without ANY education? The Consistency, Accuracy, Responsibility and Excellence (CARE) in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy bill will establish minimum education and credentialing standards for personnel who plan and deliver radiation therapy and medical imaging services.

I just took action on this issue and thought you might find it interesting too.
