Leverage has been a fave show in my house since a romance reader told me about it in a yahoo loop. I’ve always enjoyed it, and I have a blast watching Elliot kick some ass. I have to say that this last season has been a favorite. First, there’s Parker and Hardison and their relationship. It’s fun to watch him try to lure her into the emotional side of things. As much fun as it is to watch her squirm [...]

When it comes to reality tv most of us fall into one of two categories. We love it or we hate it. I used to be of the hate it variety and for the most part I am still in that camp. The one place I veer off that path is in the musical shows – American Idol, America’s Got Talent and The Voice. Of the three shows, I’m pretty sure I prefer The Voice. First off, they’ve narrowed down [...]
My pal Sasha Summers is doing a cover reveal today. It’s a pretty fabulous cover! The Blurb: All she wants for Christmas is for Hollywood to love her again. But once she meets him, her Christmas list changes. Jen’s only Christmas wish: Hollywood falling back in love with her. Meeting ex-Marine Gunner was a bonus. She likes that he isn’t impressed by celebrities or the movie biz. She likes that he’s funny and sweet … and drop-dead gorgeous. And she [...]
Every year when the new TV shows roll around I try to ignore the promo spots, because we have plenty of shows that we watch. Another reason I try to avoid the promo spots is because my falling for a show in the first season is generally a kiss of death for the show. Yep, I’m that person who watches a show in the first season only to have the show be cancelled when the season is over. Needless to [...]
Typically when we think of miracles we think of amazing stories that touch on the impossible. They’re those stories that make our arm hair stand on end or goosebumps pop to life. They’re those stories that make us cry as we read them or watch a video about them. Miracles are more than all those things, though. And they can be found all around us in our daily lives. Sometimes those miracles involve people. A loved one or a child [...]

Are words necessary to remind us of the miracles surrounding us?
I hadn’t heard about The Words until I was given the chance to see this movie last week before it released. Loving movies, I jumped at the chance the moment I watched the trailer. It looked so intriguing. Well, I saw it. It was slower than the kind of movie I normally go to theaters to see, but slower in a good way. It had an artistic, literary feel to it. There was romance and heartbreak. There were characters that [...]
Some miracles whisper through us with their quiet power. Some make us sigh with a sweet awe or shed a tear. Others grab us by throat and heart and they squeeze emotions out of us until we hurt. Today’s story is one of the last ones. At least it was for me, and continues to be as I try to find more current updates on how the baby is doing. Simply reading about her in the news has me feeling [...]
I was asked a couple of months ago to start sharing writing tips here on my blog. I thought about not fulfilling the request because there are so many great blogs out there about writing, and I want to be sure I’m bringing something new or fresh. The thought wouldn’t go away though, so here I am, making the first blog on my newly designed site a writing related one. As I was reading, note taking and absorbing the brilliance [...]
