The holidays aren’t over

Call it willful denial, but the holidays aren’t over in my house. Not, at least, until we’ve finished our fudge.

Photograph of two pieces of fudge and a glass of milk: yummy!

By the way, the recipe is super-easy.

“Get off the computer now and again”

“Get off the computer now and again.” It’s not always so easy for writers to do, especially for those who — like me — try to write every day. But tomorrow I’m off for a nice long holiday visit with family, and I’ve vowed to be offline the whole time.

A holiday book-tree

Theresa Romain, a fellow author of historical romance, made a tree out of books! I’m picturing it with a few strands of colored lights, a little tinsel draped here and there . . . and some more books (wrapped, of course) around the base. Because books make great gifts, don’t they? ;)
