Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Peter the Cat...
This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

And Jasper makes three!
Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Another good read...

by the Queen of Suspense - Mary Higgins Clark.  She seems like such a lovely and gracious lady; I would love to meet her.  I'd also love to be the amazing and prolific writer that she is!  The very best thing about her books is that you can recommend them to anyone: your neighbor, your maiden aunt, a teenager, a nun.  You get the picture - well written, not too gory (it's just a couple of murders, after all), no bad language and no smut.  My very favorite kind of book.  Okay, there's a little romance once in a while, but extremely PG.  The Shadow of Your Smile is no exception to Mary's rules of good suspense.  It's well-written and fairly fast-paced with a seemingly unrelated group of characters who all eventually tie the loose ends of the story up.  The main characters are likeable enough and the bad guys are bad - with a few red herrings thrown in for good measure.  If you're looking for some light summer reading, you can't go wrong if you pick this one up.
