Chuck was born feral and homeless, but lucky for him, this belly boy, this rascal cat was rescued and now travels the world with me. Yeah, he's snarky and he's mostly on the lookout for good food and beautiful girl cats, but I love him all the same. Join me as I tell my stories . . .Chuck partying in Italy. . .

Who is Chuck and why does he like to travel?
I was born to be a writer and when I wrote my novel Wild Point Island, Chuck, my orange and white recently rescued feral tabby, got it in his head that he wanted to travel to the island and see the place for himself. Well, of course, Wild Point Island, can only be seen by revenants (you'll have to read the book to find out who they are) and Chuck is no revenant so instead, I concocted a plan to take Chuck with me when I travel around the world, which I do frequently. Not an easy task. First, I have to deflate the poor kid of all air, stuff him in my carry-on bag, remember to bring my portable pump, and when I arrive, I pump him back up. Ouch. But he's used to it by now and given the choice to either stay home in his comfy cat bed or get deflated, he pulls out his passport, ready to travel, every time.

Blogger Book Fair 2013 February 9 DAY 3
BLOGGER BOOK FAIR 2013
This year our theme is The World for a Shilling, based on the cost of the entrance fee back in 1851 for the Great Exhibition held in Hyde Park, England.
Six million people or roughly one third of the population of Great Britain visited the exhibition.
In keeping with the theme of the Great Exhibition of 1851, I’d like to announce a CONTEST and then introduce a fabulous author, her work, and one fabulous blogger:
First, the CONTEST:
Read the blurb of Wild Point Island and leave a one sentence comment with your email. During each of the four days of the Blogger Book Fair, one reader will win a free Kindle e book of my newest paranormal romance. At the end of Day Four, I will pick again from all the readers who have participated. The prize: $25.00 Amazon gift certificate.

I LOVE all things spicy! With the Thanksgiving holiday almost
upon us, now is the time to start devising ways to use up all that yummy
leftover turkey! Sandwiches are great – for the first day or so. If you like to
enjoy a good enchilada you will devour this recipe!
You will need…
·1 can Cream of Mushroom
·8 oz Mozzarella Cheese
·8 oz Colby Jack (grated)
·Reg size container
·Coconut Oil (cause I like
the exotic flavoring over Olive oil)
First you want to soften
your corn shells by heating them in a skillet over med heat using the Coconut
Oil. Put a TSP or so of oil in the pan and lay the shell in it. As it heats up
it will start change color slightly and/or bubble. Flip the shell over and heat
the other side. This will make the stiff shells pliable for filling and
After you have your
shells all soft and workable you want to grease your casserole dish with a
smidge of oil.
In a mixing bowl combine
the Turkey, Cream of Mushroom soup, Ricotta cheese, and 2/3 of the grated
cheese. Use a small amount of this filling to line your baking dish to keep the
shells from sticking and to add flavor all the way around.
Holding the shell in the
cup of your palm, scoop approximately two tblsp of filling into the center.
Wrap the side together and place in the dish. Using your finger smear a bit of
the filling across one edge and overlap the other on top of it. The bit of
filling will help keep them sealed together.
All 12 shells may or may
not fit into one dish. Just get a smaller one and use it for the leftovers.
After you have stuffed your shells you want to take the remaining filling (if
there is any!) and spread it over the enchiladas then top with the remaining
You can cover with
aluminum foil – or not. I don’t like to so I leave it topless Bake
on 350 degrees for mmmm approximately 30 mins. I cook by smell. If I can smell
it – it’s time to take it out! lol You want the top cheese melted and the shells
to have a cooked look to them. (edges might be brown and crunchy looking but
not overly so)
If you like them HOT
add some Chile sauce to your mixture.
Pull them out of the oven
and let stand only a few minutes. Top with your favorite Salsa and Sour Cream!
Of course, I can’t eat
Spicy Nights Turkey Enchiladas without my fave Mexican beer Dos Equis…because
I AM the most interesting woman in the world!

What better way to spend
an evening than curling up with Isabella’s Enchiladas and her book OLLY!! (don’t forget the

“I love you as
certain dark things are to be loved, In secret, between the shadow and the
soul." ~ Pablo Neruda
With my hand resting at
the top of my breastbone, I took a deep breath to calm my nerves, preparing to
exhume several ghosts from a past I had suppressed long ago. I began, “The
problem with love is that people often mistake it with several of its closely
related cousins.” I paused to gather my scattered thoughts and could see she
already had questions, but I held up my hand to keep her from breaking our
agreement. “So many people-myself included-mistake lust and obsession for love.
While still embodying them, true love is neither of those things, if that makes
Devin nodded, keeping
silent while feverishly jotting down notes.
“In order to appreciate
why I fell in love with the man I did, you have to understand how I came to
accept the fact that love doesn’t always show up in the most convenient
package. Sometimes it pushes all your buttons, makes you doubt yourself and
question the core of your beliefs. At a time in my life when love didn’t seem
possible, I went hunting for the next best thing….”
