Thanks for reading : )
Happy New Year
In the midst of a move and more so it was a busy week and our New Year was quiet and lovely : )
Went to see the new Mary Poppins Returns with my favorite movie critic my son and we highly recommend it –
Our first new film for 2019 (so happy it was)
It was a good time and
good story (loved the costume design as well)!
Best Wishes and hope everyone had a nice New Year!

Had a festive Halloween month one of the highlights was the
Haunt at Kings Dominion. Always a spooky fun time. The pic above is of the Eiffel Tower at the theme park lit up for the Haunt : ) Also went to a holiday open house . . .
And my updated books for
“A Dead Ringer for Katie Rock Star”
(BOOK ONE & TWO) are available.
The Links to the paperback and eBook are under my Book tab
below a pic of the updated eBook:
And the hardcopies arrived on my front porch last week . . .
They Look Great:
The models look like they are on a cloud —
which I love.
And appropriate since an
Angel and Knight themed series . . .
AND ALTHOUGH AN UPDATED BOOK ONE & TWO ARE AVAILABLE
the Amazon KDP & CreateSpace merged so I’m still having some technical problems with the new paperbacks on Amazon but they are available at Barnes & Noble.
The technical issues should be fixed soon but may have a different inside format.
I will share when available . . .
And Book Two Real Time is available in hardback at Barnes & Noble (part two of my three book mystery). The front flap below will be part of the design for my bookmarks:
AND HALLOWEEN FESTIVITIES INCLUDED
Movie Night, Comic-con, Theme Park Haunt, and Beauty and the Beast live.
And while at the haunt – Lorde’s cover of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” was played which is also in the Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer. It is an epic cover and perfect for Halloween. Below is choreography I came across which uses that song. I also added it to my faves on my author YouTube.
And although I’ve been dancing since the age of two – I only first came across modern dance while in college . . .
Check out the song and modern choreography below:
And November 4 is daylight savings – not a fan
but been hiking as usual. Below are a couple of my favorite pics from my camera roll from September:

and what’s to come for
November and December:
A HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY & BLITZ for my two books in December
(I will announce the date) and what will be included in the giveaway –
(but hardcopies of both book one and two) will be a part of it, with the final book in this mystery available in March of next year . . .
And the film “Bohemian Rhapsody” hits theatres this weekend (which is one of my most anticipated films) picked up the soundtrack, and just saw “First Man” which was about Astronaut Neil Armstrong (the first man to walk on the moon) July 1969. It was a good film, well made, no fluff, and sad. It also asks how important space travel really is.
I will be attending Winterfest, seeing the show “Merrily We Roll Along” which opens tonight, participating in Neko-Con, and the Rave Ons (one of my interviewee’s) will be in town with his band to perform their holiday show A Rockabilly Christmas (check his interview, video’s, and links) on the ‘Rock and Roll Interview One’ tab if you haven’t gotten a chance, plus, Miss Saigon hits the Kennedy Center, and Dave Matthews will be in concert. Freddie and Jason (left) I picked up from the holiday open house last month (love the itty’s) clever:
My new author web site (which is in the midst of being created) should be live by December with new Author Photo’s. And I will share some book location inspiration and more.
I’ve also been listening to a few books on audible while tackling
the daily grind:
MY GOODREADS PAGES
If you want to friend or follow –
Regardless, I think I rambled a bit, but I hope everyone will have a great day!
The eBooks are live if interested in downloading them from Amazon (linked below) & Barnes & Noble (under my books tab).
The updated paperback had technical issues but ROCK STAR & REAL TIME are now available on Barnes & Noble:

recently found out Miss Saigon is coming to the Kennedy Center in December and I will definitely be adding that to my list of live performances to see. Never have seen it and am super excited . . .
As usual this week has been busy, but Some LOCATION INSPIRATION FOR WINGS UNIVERSITY
the local University in the town of Angel Bay (the setting for my series) also where my heroine went to college . . .
(photographer Tia Brady)
October is alumni weekend and homecoming
for a couple of colleges I attended (I will be participating in those) – author fun fact I attended two Universities for my college studies . . .
approaches (which I love) — I’ve narrowed my costume choices to three
The one I’m leaning towards is Julie (for me) — and R for (significant other) – from the Zombie flick “Warm Bodies”. He wanted me to choose:
The flowers are a must for R’s costume below . . .
plus I have the wardrobe (so it’s easy and quick). The makeup will be the most challenging part – but fun.
And it’s such a good Halloween flick
My favorite fright night movie is Joss Whedon’s “Cabin in the Woods” or the film “Fright Night” (for fright night) the original and the 2011 version . . .
And I revisited the movie of a favorite childhood Book
last week . . .
Have a great Monday!
