Weekend Writing Warriors #36!

Good morning! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers out there. As most of you know, I lost my mother in February, 2016. I had a dream about her last night. Sometimes I think she knows when I need her the most. I always feel her spirit, but when I dream about her, it’s like she’s still here. Today’s Steeped in Love snippet is dedicated to her and all of the other beautiful mothers out there, whether on earth or in heaven.


Cupid, draw back your bow….

Well, my friends, I’ve officially deleted my Tinder profile. Yes. It’s true. I’ll let you all digest that for a moment.

Don’t fret, though, because I haven’t given up on the dating scene altogether. I’m just exploring other options. My latest exploration…OkCupid. It’s an app that has the swipe left or right feature as well, but this one encourages more in-depth bios, and it allows all users to send each other messages. Essentially, you message anyone who tickles your fancy.

In other words, you end up with eleventy billion messages from weirdos you want nothing to do with. Now, since I’m a generous person, I’ve decided to share some of those conversation starters with you. The magnificent Maggie Wells, author extraordinaire, will be providing her always-entertaining commentary. Poor guys never stood a chance. Ready? Here we go!


Play Dates Cover Reveal!

Ahoy-hoy, my friends! We have a very special guest with us here today! Drum roll, please….

It’s Maggie Wells, author extraordinaire!

Maggie’s kicking off a new series in October featuring hot single dads. Need I say more? Lucky for us, we get a sneak-peek at the cover for the first book in her series. Which is coming right up…after a little game! I asked Maggie to name her dream play date partner and what they like to play. She was all goody-goody and chose her hubby. 😉


Weekend Writing Warriors #31!

Hey, ladies and gents, I’m baaaaaaaaack! 😀 How’s everyone been? Very glad to be joining you again for a fun Sunday full of reading and writing. Since I’m currently adding words to Steeped in Love, I figured I’d share some snippets of the additions with you. Without further ado, let’s find out what Ethan and Addie are up to!


Dear Rideau High School….

I’ve been a teacher for more than four years now. I’ve spent time in dozens of schools in the Ottawa region. Wonderful schools full of amazing students and teachers. They all hold a special place in my heart. But my life completely transformed when I entered Rideau High School for the first time.
