Princess Charlotte & the Nanny

Wedding Of Pippa Middleton And James MatthewsYeah, yeah, I know everybody else was going crazy over the wedding of the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge.


Being a retired nanny, I was more fascinated by the children, and of their nanny.  See the brown skirt and sensible shoes?  That’s the nanny helping out.  Go, nanny!  You can see her full self at the Princess’ christening.  That’s her between the Queen and Prince George.  She’s a Norlander, of course.2A4075C200000578-3148350-image-a-9_1436190219223

Heather Massey – An Enduring Author

***This post was originally about Laurie A. Green, another Enduring Author, but I realized I mixed her information with Heather’s.  Sorry!  It’s fixed now.***


I encountered Heather in cyberspace a long time ago, can’t even remember when.  I think it was at Critique Circle.   If you’re an aspiring author,

is a great place to start.  I still have online friends I made there and I think all of them are published in some way now.

So, I contacted Heather to see how things are going for her these days.  Here’s what she said:   “I’ve been kind of quiet online lately because of Real Life Stuff, but I’m still blogging occasionally and I had a book out recently from Red Sage (The Inventor’s Wife). And I’m working on a big ass steampunk romance. So that’s my life right now in a nutshell lol!”

I’ve thought about subbing to Red Sage, but I suspect they may be too erotic for the kind of stories I write.  Mine don’t get any more graphic than Harlequin’s Special Edition line.  Red Sage has been around for a long time, so way to go, Heather!

Almost Recovered

aftertime-pb-200The pain is gone, but still stiff.  No wonder trolls are so grumpy.  Have you seen their teeth?  Anyway…I’m not ready for regular blogging yet, but maybe tomorrow.  In the meantime, I thought I’d let you know I’m reading Aftertime by Sophie Littlefield and it is riveting.

Harlequin used to have an imprint for the Fantasy genre called LUNA.  I liked it a lot more than their paranormal imprint.  Just so much more variety and you know how I prefer a buffet.
