Load Your Kindle/Rides home on New Years


Check out the books and samples in this end of the year giveaway. You probably already have mine, but there are lots of others to choose from.

Anyone else down with a bad cold? I got hit a couple of days ago and I’ve been living on the couch. And reading. And watching lots of Netflix. Did you see Bird Box yet? It was riveting. I was home alone, it was windy and the streets were eerily quiet. It made for a wonderfully scary couple of hours.

If you enjoyed the movie, you might like the book published in 2014. And you’ll definitely want to listen to an interview with the author on one of my favorite podcasts. Here’s a link to the youtube version because you’ll actually want to watch this one.

If you’ll be celebrating out and about this New Years, don’t forget to bring along your designated driver. If no one wants to bite the bullet, then check your local area for free rides home from the bar. If you’re in California, from the Bay area to Sacramento, you can pre-register for reimbursement of up to $20 for a ride home from the bar.  Stay safe and write on,


P.S. the Bird Box is an affiliate link so feel free to look for it on Amazon if you don’t like that sort of thing. See you soon.

She currently resides in Florida, where she’s a reasonable driving distance to roller coasters in the Orlando area. An unexpected encounter with her daughter’s nine foot boa, Strawberry Margarita, led to the idea for the first book in her June Nash Misadventure series. When she’s not writing, she and her husband run. Slowly. She accidentally completed her first marathon in 2017, when she didn’t hear her husband ask if she’d like to stop at 13.1. She would have.
