Social Media

I’ve been taking a break from the news lately because it’s so stressful. It’s pretty much impossible to write humor, or even romance, when it seems the whole world hates each other. I miss “talking” to my friends and seeing what they’re doing on social media, especially in this time ...

Floating down the Danube

As I told my newsletter readers, I’m just back from a tour of the Danube. I didn’t do much writing or research, but I took ten tons of pictures! The scenery and the history were awe-inspiring and gave me ideas on how to torture my next poor hero. <G> If ...
