Please note that the giveaway mentioned in this post is closed. January is always a fun month. Well, when I was teaching, it was fun for a day or two and then school started again and the snow started falling and things got ugly. 😉 Now, however, I am a writer, and I can look … Continue reading Austen Authors January 9, 2017: New Year, New Book, New Giveaway
As you may recall from November’s post, I spent a week in Phoenix, visiting my aunt. I travelled by air and arrived within seven hours of leaving Cleveland. The return trip was not so smooth, and I spent the night in Charlotte’s airport (with nary a race shop in sight ~sigh~), finally arriving back in … Continue reading Austen Authors December 12, 2016: Regency Roads
The day this blog entry posts, I will be in Arizona, visiting my aunt and recovering from another race day.

When I was contemplating this month’s blog post, I considered several ideas, forgetting most of them by the time I got to the computer and discarding the rest as too deep to get into. Finally, as I sat watching a Thursday night football game (slow and BORING!!!), crocheting on a sweater that I started something … Continue reading Austen Authors September 19, 2016: Regency Crochet?
After what has been an exhausting couple of months, I am fully engulfed in my new life. School has started, without me. I have moved into my new home, that I have dubbed Burton Cottage. I spent a weekend going racing, and another dealing with personal and professional issues. I spent two entire months sorting, … Continue reading Austen Authors August 22, 2016: Moving Day
Recently, I took Rose Fairbanks to a NASCAR race. We were in Sparta, Kentucky for the Quaker State 500 Sprint Cup Series event. We ate lunch with the inestimable Sharon Lathan before heading to the track…that was great! 🙂 As you may recall, I am a huge NASCAR fan. This was the first race I … Continue reading Austen Authors, July 25, 2016: Racing in the Regency
I had thought, when I became an Austen Author, to share my posts here but never quite figured out how. Now that time has passed (2 1/2 years' worth), I have decided how to do it. I will share my past Austen Authors posts here on Mondays. I have 46 of them built up, so … Continue reading Austen Authors June 27, 2016: Life Changes
Today is my second blog post over at the Austen Authors blog. It posted early in the morning there, but I wanted to share it with folks who see me here but maybe don't often read over at Austen Authors. Many of you already know that early last month, I and four other fantastic writers, … Continue reading Why Jane Austen?
