A young woman’s haunted memories entangled with an old house that is being demolished. As she watches the destruction of the house, she recounts her story of the chilling tragedy that occurred inside.

The Buried House is my first ebook!

It’s my magnum opus. Or, as Painter Smurf would say, it’s “my masterpizza!”

Well, I’m exaggerating. It’s a short story (only 700 words) that I put on Smashwords and Amazon earlier this summer. It’s on Amazon, and I’ve tried (my brother has tried, my friend has tried) to get them to put it on for free, since their competitor (Smashwords) has it for free. Still waiting.

And waiting…

…and waiting…

Anyway, it’s on Amazon for 99 cents, or you can download it from Smashwords for free. You’d be doing me a huge favor if you could go rate it on Amazon for me. And while you’re there, you could let them know that Smashwords has it for free.

Hope you all enjoy!

Musings of a Neo-Hippie Mom (Part II)

Lefty and I have been watching that CNN documentary series on the 1960s.  I started re-thinking yesterday’s post about being a neo-hippie.  As a free-thinker and someone who goes against popular culture, I hope that I wouldn’t have been cruel to our VietNam vets when they came home from the war/conflict (however you want to call… Continue Reading

Musings of a Neo-Hippie Mom (Part I)

When I was in college, I decided that I was a neo-flower child. After all, I had been born around the time that people were putting flowers in their hair and VietNam was going on. When I mentioned it to one of my relatives, he nearly exploded. Apparently, he had been a real hippie, and… Continue Reading

How to Wrangle a Pup for a Vet Visit

I tossed my handbag out of the way and dove for the pup. We had twenty minutes to lasso Spike, our three-month old lab rescue pup, and get him to his veterinarian appointment. The garage door was closed, so Princess Buttercup (PB) and I edged toward him with his collar and his leash. It was… Continue Reading

Happy Father’s Day Do’s and Don’t’s

Father’s Day sneaked up on us this year. It’s 9 a.m., and Princess Buttercup and I have got to sneak out and go buy Lefty that perfect gift! Well, actually, we aren’t sneaking. Lefty and his brother are meeting their dad for breakfast at Cracker Barrel right now. Before he left, Lefty said, “Um…If you… Continue Reading

What Makes 16 Years of Marriage Work

Dear Readers, 16 years ago today–June 6, 1998–I married my best friend and the love of my life. His online name is “Lefty.” It seems like yesterday that I was the nervous (terrified, actually!) bride that you see in the picture. You can see the fear in my eyes because I would be making one… Continue Reading

Yummies at Farmers Market!

Last Thursday, I took Spike (the puppy), Princess Buttercup (my child), and we all headed down to the Huntsville Hospital HealthWorks Farmers’ Market, under the Tram, at Governor’s and Madison. Oh, wow, dear Readers…I’ve just got to tell you…It’s a smaller market, but it has got a lot of great stuff! Case in point, I have… Continue Reading

Not a Sin to Kill a Mockingbird

I just want to clarify something that people in Alabama really know: It is not a sin to kill a mockingbird.  It’s not, friends.  No matter how hard Harper Lee tries to convince us otherwise. Mockingbirds are bossy, fussy, messy, and they chase you and your dogs. If you think that you own your house,… Continue Reading
