A Possible Goodbye to the Circus Diner #ThrowbackThursday

There are some things that have been around forever and are embedded in people’s minds and hearts. The Circus Diner is one of those things because of its uniqueness and longevity. It has been around for 63 years in Wall Township and is an iconic emblem of the Jersey Shore.

Sadly, the property has been sold and it looks like the new owner has no interest in running a restaurant. While the township is discussing what can be done to preserve what should be a landmark, it seems that little can be done. You can read and see more about the Circus diner by clicking here.

For now, some pictures from one of my visits to this truly unique place.

My Best Friend & Buffy #ThrowbackThursday

My daughter and I used to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer together off and on. Me more than my daughter, but she indulged me about it. This is a photo of us all dressed and ready for the Season 6 premiere. We had a fun time watching at our little party and even had some friends join us for the show.

Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the show first came on the air.

#ThrowbackThursday A Mets Day!

A couple of years back, my daughter and I got to go to a game at Citi Field for the first time. It was very exciting to see the new stadium and check out the Mets Museum. It certainly beat this Tuesday when we stood in the rain only to have the game cancelled. Sigh.

Anyway, this is us with the 1969 World Series trophy! So exciting. Hoping we can bring another one home soon.

P.S. – If you’re like me and love baseball, you might want to try out my baseball book! The second one in the series will be out later this year!

Ocean Grove Memories & At the Shore #ThrowbackThursday

The fictional town in the At the Shore Contemporary Romance series, Sea Kiss, is actually a composite of several of my favorite towns along the Jersey Shore. For those familiar with the area, you may see descriptions of areas that match those of a particular town. It was fun for me to take the best of my favorite towns and create Sea Kiss.

Today’s throwback is to memories of one of my favorite towns – Ocean Grove. Don’t be surprised if the characters in the books also visit a cute little surf and skate shop there!

Easter Sunday #ThrowbackThursday

With Easter just a few days away, it reminds me of all the Easter Egg hunts we used to have with the kids when they were younger. We kept them up until the kids were way into their teens since it was so much fun.

Hopefully we’ll soon have another generation who can participate!

This is a photo from one of those long ago Easter Egg hunts.

#ThrowbackThursday RT Book Cover 1999

Today’s throwback seems somehow appropriate since I’m going back to my contemporary romance roots with the At the Shore series. I’ve been very happy to hear all your positive comments about how much you liked those original novels and how you’re looking forward to the new stories. ONE SUMMER NIGHT will be out in October 2017 and I think you will really love that Romeo and Juliet tale. It’s even got a balcony scene, but not in the way you might expect. Please take a moment to add ONE SUMMER NIGHT to your Want to Read pile on Goodreads!

This is the cover of my very first novel, NOW AND ALWAYS, on the cover of Romantic Times magazine. I was told by a reputable source that the cover model was the famous John DeSalvo.
