Currently. . .

The wonderful Katy Upperman has helped to spread this blog hop(which was started by others but you'll have to head on over to her for all the deets). Each week we can give a glimpse at what we're currently up to or doing in our lives...yep, writers do more than just sit and contemplate words.

Loving. . .

Warmer weather and going outside without grabbing a jacket first! Plus, my humming bird feeder had its first visitor.

Reading. . .

I've been going through the Melissa Marr Fairy series. I just finished WICKED LOVELY a couple of nights ago, and although I couldn't put it down while reading, the ending was a bit disappointing. I might start the 2nd one, INK EXCHANGE, tonight but I'm hesitant after reading that the main characters change. And I'm several chapters into Alex J. Cavanaugh's DRAGON OF THE STARS and am loving it!

Watching. . .

I've been flipping through several Japanese things lately, some Anime and some series. Nothing's really sticking yet, but my oldest son is having a grand old time teasing me about them.

Thinking About. . .

What to do next. Although we made the big move across the ocean last year, things aren't really settling in. For reasons out of our control, the planned ranch with my family has suddenly fallen through. Since our current living situation isn't really sustainable without the ranch for a longer period of time, we're going to have to come up with a new plan. Alaska? Beach home? Start up a business? The possibilities are endless and floating in all directions at the moment.

Anticipating. . .

My son's graduation in four days. See what he does in the next phase of life.

Wishing. . .

That I had a clone. Or more hours in the day. Or more days? My to-do list is HUGE! And I need to get my MS done and off to my agent. Can't I just snap my fingers and have everything done?

Making Me Happy. . .

Sonic has half priced Slushes today! Brain-freeze is guaranteed!


  1. Glad you're enjoying Dragon! Hope its ending doesn't disappoint.
    Congratulations to your son.
    And would you like to take a run through my cloning machine...?

  2. I'll take those extra hours in the day, too. Make it happen. ;)

    I'm sorry things fell through on the ranch, but it's great that you're not locked into a location. It sounds like you have a lot of thinking to do—but with a lot of possibility, which is great. :)

  3. OMG, INK EXCHANGE is my favorite of the 5. Yes every book has a different narrator but all the characters show up and have plots in each book. I LOOOOVE the Wicked Lovely series. Glad you enjoyed the first one.

    Sorry things fell through with the ranch :(

  4. I am sorry to hear that your plans did not come to fruition, but it seems as if you are considering many alternatives. Congratulations to your son! My daughter graduates next month!

  5. I finished watching Chinese production of The History of Zhen Huan - it was fascinating - 76 episodes. I love Japanese and Korean productions too.

    Wishing you good fortune on a new home!

  6. Wow--I'm so sorry about the ranch falling through! I hope you're able to find something equally as awesome to do that is sustainable. *hugs*

    Hmmm . . . maybe writing full time? ;-)

  7. Congrats on your son's graduation! Sorry about the ranch falling through. Hope it all works out. The possibilities may be endless, but sometimes not knowing is so hard.

  8. 1/2 price slushes?! I missed it -- darn! Best of luck to your son as he graduates (I dread the day my kiddo is all grown up!), and I'm feeling you on needing a clone. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Have a great week, Tonja!

  9. Good luck in your search for a better location, In addition to cloning, you could just freeze time for a while. Joshua did something similar, with rave results!


I would love to hear your valuable Tidbits -
