I love going to Disneyworld! I just get caught up in the escape factor of being in their made-up worlds which is why I guess one of my favorite movies is Beauty and the Beast (the animated version). And while I love Mickey, I have to say that my favorite is Donald Duck. Don’t know why, but I just love his crazy moods and mumbling to himself kind of speech. I find it endearing. So here’s a picture of my clan with none other than the duck himself, say hello to #TeamDonald!
Today’s throwback is not all that long a toss since I’m going back to last week and the RWA conference in Orlando, Florida. Sharing some photos of my friends, workshops, fireworks and other fun things!
Thank you for the friendship and inspiration!
First of all, sorry for the delay in posting, but it’s taken me two days to catch up with work and writing obligations after my trip to RWA 2017. I had a blast, despite the Orlando heat and humidity. I got to spend time with old and dear friends, make new friends, and of course, get in a number of very interesting and useful workshops to help me be a better writer. A win-win situation!
Here’s a collage I did of some of the fun people I got to meet and spend time with at the conference. I will have a lot more photos for you to tomorrow!

A few years ago we did a family vacation to Disney and had a blast. The only thing we didn’t like was coming back to the aftermath of a snow and ice storm and having to chip and dig our way into the driveway!
One of the hightlights of the trip was our dinner at the Be Our Guest restaurant and meeting the beast! From the moment my best bud and I walked into the castle, we were enchanted. Of course, the guys were like “Where’s the food?”, but we were oohing and aahing over the ballroom ceiling, west wing and of course, meeting the beast in the library!
I’ll be back in the area for the RWA National Conference and if you’ll be down there, I’d love to get together with you!
With the RWA Conference coming up in July, I’m so excited. I’m getting together promo items, I’ve got a date with some new RWA members for a trip to Disney, other dates with my agent and publisher, a signing . . . SO MUCH TO BE EXCITED ABOUT.
And I’ve divested all the assorted pins from my badge holder and have left only two for now: My 50 Book Pin and my RITA nomination pin. So that’s today’s Throwback! My two pins.
I’ve been watching THE KILLING and thinking, “Boy, Billy Campbell is still hot!” He first caught my eye in The Rocketeer and here we are over 25 years later and Billy is still handsome!
Hope you enjoy today’s Man Crush!
It was a busy weekend what with the Liberty States Fiction Writers conference and a post conference movie date with a good friend and my lovely daughter. What movie? Beauty and the Beast, of course. The animated feature was always one of our favs (closely followed by Anastasia which we will be seeing on Broadway shortly!)
I wasn’t sure what to make of the actor playing the Beast/Prince. I have to say that the transformation at the end surprised me in a good way. I won’t spill in case you haven’t seen the movie yet.
So today’s Man Candy Choice is Dan Stevens, the Beast/Prince. (And FYI – Emma Watson was the perfect Belle!)
