But you don’t have to go that far.  For those of you who live here in the Valley of the Sun, all you have to do is head on out to the Glendale Chocolate Affaire this weekend in Historic Downtown Glendale.  It’s a wonderful festival with lots of fun and lights and vendors hocking everything from clothing and hats to jewelry and chocolate…oh, and did I mention all the BOOKS?!  Well, what got into me almost forgetting the books?  That’s the best part…well, next to the chocolate.  LOL  Hey, I’m a writer, but I’m not crazy.  Who doesn’t love chocolate?

So shuffle on over to Murphy Park at 58th Avenue and Glendale and don’t forget to stick your head in at the Romance Writers booth and say Hi to some of the Butterscotch Martini Girls.  Our signing schedule looks like this:

So come on down and see us this weekend and stock up on some great reads, some chocolate, and whatever else your little heart desires.  Oh, and guys…did I mention this is a great Valentine’s event?  (hint…hint)  There will be bands playing too, and if you’re there between 7:30-10 tonight, you can catch my cousin Gordon’s band—Groove, Inc—for some great oldies (the music, not the band…LOL).  Oh, and did I forget to mention there’s a beer and wine garden?  Oh yeah…we’ve got it all goin’ on at the Glendale Chocolate Affaire this weekend.  So come say Hi.

That’s my story, gooey and chocolatey, and I’m stickin’ to it.  Hang on tight now ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!

Everyday Heroes

It’s been a long while since I posted a hero of the month, but I’ve been watching the news lately and with cyclones, earth quakes and general, every day violent crime, I thought it was too long since my last hero.

After all, I write romance, and the hero is paramount in my stories, but hero’s are far more important in our day to day lives.

I decided to pick someone that has been stabbed, shot at and been generally overlooked in the public eye. After all what can a dog do, right?

Well, it seems a lot. Especially if you’re a police dog named Anya. Without her bravery, her dog handler, officer Neil Sampson, might very well be dead. Sampson tried to fight off a frenzied attack from a knife-welding assailant. With four knife wounds to his legs and long cuts to his face and head, he would have been a lot worse if Anay hadn’t fought off his assailant despite being stabbed in the chest herself.

Anay and Neil Sampson have made a full recovery.

“Anya’s a very motivated, fast dog,” says Sampson. “She’s like a jack-in-the-box on Red Bull. “She’s full on, but, my God, I’m happy she’s mine.”

Thank you Anya and all the dog handlers out there who train these remarkable dogs.

Live from Pittsburgh…It’s RT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, we are smack dab in the middle of the Romantic Times conference 2008. Fellow BMGs in attendance are Cassie Ryan, Lynne Logan, Tia Dani, Isabella Clayton & Kayce Lassiter. So far a great time is being had by all.

Tonight is the Faery Ball and I’m very excited to say this is my first time as a member of the Court. Lots of glitter, wings and beautiful gowns. But, I must say my favorite thing about this conference is the one on one connection with the readers.

This is why we write. For the readers. Yes, we write for ourselves, too. Don’t get me wrong, but if it wasn’t for the readers and the lovers of books everywhere we would be out of a job.

I’ve made some great connections so far this week and met some wonderful new people. Now all we need is the hotel to order some Buttershots and we’ll be in great shape! Although we did find a great little bar in downtown Pittsburgh, The Steel City Bar & Grill, on First Ave & Smithfield, where the bartender made them perfectly.

Well, I’m off and running again. Maybe Cassie will tell you all about how she saved me from being run down by a city bus.

Hugs and kisses,

Ciao ~

The Origins of April Fools Day

Yes, I know I’m a couple days late for this day, but I got to thinking.  When did this crazy day all begin?  Well, I decided to do some research and came away with, well, with hardly anything.  The actual origin of the day is unknown.  There are a number of people that believe it started in the Middle Ages.  Some jokes were discovered in France in the 16th century, but it seems to be the case that this time period was a continuation of previous years. The day became more popular in the 18th century, particularly in Great Britain.

Now the day is celebrated not only in the US, but Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Russia and even over on the other side of the world to Japan.

I didn’t get caught this year, but I’ve been nabbed a couple times, but I always try to pay the culprit back the next year. J

Betcha Didn’t Know…

I thought since Easter is coming around real quick, I’d share some little known and interesting facts about Easter.

  • The celebration of Easter has roots in three different traditions – Hebrew, Pagan and Christianity.
  • Easter was given that specific name because early Christians wanted to convert others and they thought everyone was familiar with the name, because it was an old spring tradition.
  • The White Lily is a symbol of Christ’s resurrection for Easter.
  • The hare and the egg became the symbol of Easter.  Both are signs of fertility.  The hare changed over to the rabbit because rabbits were far more common than hares.
  • The basket became a tradition, because it was a custom for Cathlolics to bring their food to mass in order for it to be blessed.  It was also an ancient agrarian custom to bring a family’s first crop to the local temple.
  • Jelly beans didn’t become a tradition in the United States until the 1930s.
  • The first edible Bunny began its tradition in Germany.  It wasn’t made of chocolate but of pastry and sugar.

Sex, Lies and DVDs Now Available For Purchase!

I’m excited to announced that my second book, Sex, Lies and DVDs, a short, erotic romance is now up and for sale at The Wild Rose Press as an ebook.

Paige Knowles is fed up with her boring existence. Tonight she intends to shed her old life and her virginity by hiring a male escort. The man who appears at her door to initiate her in the art of sex and pleasure is any woman’s carnal fantasy. Little does she know the man is no escort but a stranger hell bent on uncovering her secrets.

FBI agent, Ryan White, has one job—to investigate Paige’s involvement in an internet, piracy ring. But when he shows up at her front door, he instigates a chain reaction of lust and longing. After days of monitoring this sexy suspect on surveillance cameras, his unquenchable thirst for her forbidden lips and lush, sinful body jeopardizes not only the investigation and his career but his heart.
