Throwback Thursday - August 2008 - The Biggest Loser

I have a lot of new readers since I started my blog ( in fact I wasn't even published when I started it ) so I thought it would be fun to do a Throwback Thursday and share some of my older posts!

Back on August 21, 2008 I shared this..

Can a twenty-five dollar bet change your life?

Today my short story, which won Honorable Mention in a contest LASR held, will be posted for the universe to see. Please click at the link below. If you are so inclined - come back and leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Then He Kissed Me... Love Song Tuesday

Like my Quotes by Famous Women series, I also had a Love Song series - I think its time that it too made a comeback! The inspiration for that thought came when I was driving home and Then He Kissed Me played on the radio. I love this song and sang along in my car. It is so pure and captures the importance of the kiss!

Then He Kissed Me is an oldie and a goodie!

Every time we liberate a woman, we liberate a man. - Margaret Mead

Another blog entry in my series of... Quotes by Famous Women. 

Margaret Mead - 1901-1978 was a anthropologist, women's rights activist, and author of the best-seller, Coming of Age in Samoa.

Sooner or later I'm going to die, but I'm not going to retire. - Margaret Mead

It may be necessary temporarily to accept a lesser evil, but one must never label a necessary evil as good. - Margaret Mead

I do not believe in using women in combat, because females are too fierce. - Margaret Mead

I was wise enough to never grow up while fooling most people into believing I had. - Margaret Mead

One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don't come home at night. - Margaret Mead

All creative people want to do the unexpected. - Hedy Lamarr

It's been a long while since I've post! I've been busy writing Guarding the Quarterback and I am halfway there. I thought I revive my Quotes by Famous Women series. Since it was her birthday the other day, Hedy Lemarr is the perfect woman to reboot these posts!

Men are most virile and most attractive between the ages of 35 and 55. Under 35 a man has too much to learn, and I don't have time to teach him. - Hedy Lemarr

Any girl can look glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid. - Hedy Lemarr

American men, as a group, seem to be interested in only two things, money and breasts. It seems a very narrow outlook. - Hedy Lemarr

Dirt makes a man look masculine. Let your hair blow in the wind, and all that. It's OK. All you have to do is look neat when you have to look neat. - Hedy Lamarr

Makeovers at home and in my writing...

I'm in the process of updating the outside of our house. We took down a huge tree that after 25plus years had torn up the driveway. It was a beautiful tree and I hugged it before it was cut down. But it was a good thing we did. The tree was rotting on the inside. So better a controlled cut down versus it falling on the house. My husband wanted the driveway widen and it led to this...

The driveway is now leveled and graveled and next week the blacktop will go in. My husband is building a retaining wall. I'll post pics when its done.

Meanwhile, I'm starting a new series called Champions of the Heart. The genre is still sports romance  but I'm building the series so I can write about the other sports that I love. The series will focus on the New York sports scene. The first book will be about football though. The team, the New York Kings are the cross town rivals of my Fantasy Football Romance series, the New York Cougars - kind of like the Giants and Jets of NY. I thought it would be a nice bridge between the two series!

And along with my makeovers at home and in my books - the heroine of my next book, Alexa Reeves will also be getting a makeover!

I'm really excited about this book and Champions of the Heart!

Do you ever get restless to start over? Or to make over a room in your house?

What I did on my summer vacation - 2015

I'll be holding onto summer for a few more days but...

I went to the Train concert up at Bethel Woods (original Woodstock Site) with my niece Kristen. We had the VIP experience. 4th row and met some of the guys in the band. I also went to see Florida Georgia Line with another niece. No VIP tickets - redneck seats on the lawn - LOL!

I attended the Romance Writers of America conference and signed books at the Literacy Book Fair.

Then I spent a week at Pt. Pleasant with my sister! It was a perfect beach weather. 

Here are a couple of pics...
