JANUARY 2020 Cindy's e-newsletter: OMG – She's back...

Apologies and regrets that I've been silent for so long. I've had a lot of life happen in the last few years and writing has had to take a back seat.

That's why I'm so excited to announce the release of a brand new book, SNOW BLIND – book 6 in the amazing STORM WATCH series spearheaded by everyone's favorite suspense author, Debra Webb.

FEBRUARY 2016 Cindy's e-newsletter: Taking Fire – the cure for February blues ...

Déjà Vu all over again?

Yep.  It's February which means winter and snow and cold and wavering New Year resolutions – just like last year.  It also means some of those Christmas gifts you received have long since been exchanged for the right size, or something else altogether, OR in my case, the gift has grown! No, not a plant. :o) A puppy. Whoot!

FEBRUARY 2015 Cindy's e-newsletter: "Heat is on the way!" RUNNING BLIND is released!

Had enough of winter yet???

If you’re from the West, the Midwest, the East Coast or somewhere in between, I’m betting the answer is a resounding yes.  Even our friends in the South have had their share of nasty winter weather as well as several places around the world.  As I write this letter, it’s midday, the snow is deep on the ground, the wind is howling, and the temperature is still hovering around 0 Fahrenheit.   Yikes.

11-13-08  How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm? The New Yorker in Iowa

It’s been well established that I’m an Iowegan. Born, raised, live and love in the heartland. Sure, I’m allowed off the farm (in our case all 4 ½ acres of it) from time to time. I’ve traveled hither and yon and manage to conduct myself in a manner reasonably acceptable in polite company (picking up strange men in bars and Chippendale episodes not withstanding BUT in my defense, there were accomplices and extenuating circumstances). In short, I can handle myself whether it be hiking the jagged rims in the Grand Canyon or storming the brick and steel girded canyons of New York City. One might say I’m fearless.

10-08  Cindy's e-newsletter - Take No Prisoners

1-23-08  A little knowledge, Not always a bad thing.

We’ve posted several blogs lately about stress and fear and obstacles that get in the way of our productivity. All of us have different answers for dealing with these very real problems. Many are traditional concepts - some not so traditional. To that end, I thought I’d interject a little Feng Shui into the mix as another alternative. No. I’m not an expert. No. I’m not a died in the wool believer – that’s not to say I couldn’t be if I were to delve a little deeper into the art. But, I’m a bet hedger – so I figure, why not give it a try.

This delightful hardcover book is filled with cabin photos, stories and just cool fun. Do check it out if you have the opportunity. Click to read more.
