Bookish Love

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

I had a wonderful day yesterday at the Brooklyn Book Festival. Though the weather was a little gloomy and muggy, spirits were still high and I had a great time signing books with the fantastic Laura Curtis.

I love meeting readers and making new friends!




We even saw Waldo!

Now it’s time to get back to the writing grind as the words wait for no one and I’d better use ‘em while I have ‘em but first…

please join me in wishing a very Happy Birthday to my beautiful and amazing mother.

Happy Birthday Ma! I love you with all my heart.

We all do. Keep shining bright!

ma and me


Love always,


It’s a Festivus for The Rest of Us!

I had the best time hanging out in Brooklyn yesterday at the annual Brooklyn Book Festival with some of my RWA/NYC chapter mates. I was honored that during my time slot I got to sign with the super talented Kate McMurray. We had so much fun greeting folks and talking about romance and the romance industry. Honestly, the introvert in me didn’t think I’d enjoy it, but I can now admit with such a lovely day, wonderful friends and company and all the happy smiling faces of the New Yorkers loving reading, I think I may be hooked and can’t wait to go back next year. Thanks so much to RWA/NYC and the fantastic team lead by Jeanine Mc Adam. What a time!

Oh and my fave moment of the day is the little pic of the woman tapping her phone in the bottom right corner. She read my card and decided to buy THROUGH THE LENS right then and there for her subway ride home. What I fun moment and I love my bookish New Yorkers so very much!

Summer Breeze

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

What’s a better excuse to leave the cooking up to someone else than a cool summer evening and a perfect sunset. Last night the family and I headed out to one of our favorite spots on City Island for a quick and casual dinner of fried seafood out by the water. It was a perfect night of low humidity and lovely breezes. The dinner was hot and tasty and the dessert was sweet and cool.

As the DH drove home with the baseball game playing low on the radio, I was practically asleep by the time we pulled into our driveway, lulled and contentment as I was by a full belly and a stress free evening. This is what summer is made for. What are some of your favorite casual summer traditions?


All the best,

Happy Hump Day! Here is a picture of One World Trade Center that I took on Monday. Doesn’t it look fantastic? Not yet complete but almost there with its spire now hoisted up, bringing it to 1,776 feet and making it the tallest building in the Western hemisphere (sidebar: isn’t perspective a funny thing? It sure doesn’t look all that tall here does it? or I could just be thinking like a New Yorker).

This part of Manhattan is very much another character in my 2nd book; Seduction’s Canvas as it’s my hero and heroine, Mark and Samara’s neighborhood.  I can’t wait to share their world and their love story with you in just a few weeks. You can pre-order your copy here now.

Gosh, I love New York!

Looking Good For Her Age

Monday, February 4th, 2013

This weekend I got shoved out of left my writing cave to head downtown and attend my monthly romance writer’s meeting. Besides being a wonderful and inspirational meeting, I will thrilled to find I was down in Grand Central Station just in time for the 100th anniversary! The old girl sure looks good for her age. Here are a few pics that I snapped while bustling through to get to my train. Enjoy! Now back to the Bat Cave for me! Have a great one.




All the best,


On Park

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Glorious day in this city this weekend so I took some quick pics to take the place of my words. I just love this view of Park Avenue always a favorite of mine, no matter how many times I see it it still always makes me smile. I do miss when this was the Pan Am building though.
