I think I’ve talked before about how much I appreciate good journalism. Obviously, that stems from my past life as a reporter.

(Bonus: It’s already run in its entirety so you can binge at once.)
This soup is my secret weapon. Chicken. Wild Rice. Crockpot. (And because I’m lazy – erm, busy – I get everything from Trader Joe’s, including their pre-cut mirepoix, and all I need to do is dump everything in the crockpot and let it cook.)

Writing Life: Dragonfly – Edits. Edits. Edits. I’ve surmounted my pacing issue (I hope?) and am plugging along. Cooked To Death – I have a short story that was published in a short story anthology called “Cooked To Death: Lying on a Plate.” I’m incredibly proud to be included with some killer authors – Kristi Belcamino, Wendy Webb, Christine Husom among some of them.
