What do you want on an Author's Website?

I'm always trying to improve my website to reflect more of what the readers and hopefully fans want on my website.

Most authors have a bio, book, and links section on their site. But is that enough?

Lately, I've been trying to come up with a way to make my site more interactive.

Granted, I haven't found the solution, but thought I'd see if anyone had any suggestions.
Please email me and let me know what you'd like to see on my site.

Have an awesome week,

Lewis and Clark

This summer when I visited North Dakota,I know why would anyone visit North Dakota, I found a number of very interesting things. These statues were in front of the Lewis and Clark center. The museum had a record of their travels and lots of interesting information. After visiting the center, we drove down the road to the village, where a fort had been constructed just like the one Lewis and Clark built.

If your ever in ND, you might want to check it out.

Leave me a comment and tell me where's your favorite place to go is?

Interesting Things in Small Towns

My husband and I like to travel. I'm always amazed at the interesting things we find in the most unexpected places. These statues were outside a drug store in a small town in Nebraska.

Makes you wonder about the town.

Tell me about some of the interesting places you've visited.

A New Week

With my boys off at school, I've got a full day of writing ahead of me.

The television is off. The house is quiet. No distractions to keep me from writing pages and pages of my lastest story.

Tell me, why can't I think?

I guess every new phase of our lives takes a while to adjust.

Now, let's see where did I hide those bon-bons?

Have an awesome week,

Peaches - My Wonder Dog

We all love our pets. It amazing how they can brighten our day and lift our spirits.

Peaches is a twelve year old gray hound/lab mix. We got her from the pound when she was a puppy. I like to call her a cat in a dog's body because she loves to rub up against you.

Not particular brave, she'll bark while standing a good distance from a preditor. The hair on the back will stand up and she looks intimidating.

Just thought I'd tell you a little about my dog.

Add comments and tell me about yours.

Have a great weekend.

School Starting

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. ~Author unknown, commonly misattributed to Charles Darwin

With all the changes we go through each day of our life, some we take without question or comment while others we struggle to deal with. No matter which
way we handle it life keeps moving forward.

For all the mothers and fathers who are dealing with their child going off to kindergarden, middle school, high school and college. I can sympathize with your struggle.

It's never easy to see our babies leave the nest, but it's wonderful to see them fly.

Football Season

It's that time of year again when the grid-iron heats up.

I watched the first game last night, Colts vs. the Redskins. Not a bad game, but I like to watch college more so I'm waiting for the seasonopeners.

Luckily with Olympics starting, I have something to tide me over until the season gets underway.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

My Blue Spruce

Some of you might remember my beautiful blue spruce I planted in the spring.

Here's a picture of what it currently looks like.

Silly me, I thought it was only because I hadn't water the tree enough.

With some help from a friend, I discovered I have bagworms. Luckily, we believe we caught them in time, and the tree won't die.
Beware of this pesky worm.

Home Project

This weekend I decided to redo my hall closet.

I bought one of those closet organizers. The instructions were surprisingly simple, and the whole task wasn't as difficult as I'd expected. Measuring, drilling holes, and hammering in a few nails, and the job was done. The worst part was cutting off the shelves with a hack saw.

It did take most of the day, but well worth the time.

I also found out later I'd used the wrong saw, so maybe this is easier than I think.

Have a great day,
