December 2012 – GenreCon Rocks!
One of the perks of being a writer is going to fabulous conferences and conventions where I get to  meet readers and writers and talk about that thing that we all love – BOOKS! Read more…

 

November 2012 – Pandora Rocks the Flying Dutchman
This month’s My Favorite Things falls into the category of the best movie you probably have never heard of!  Years ago, I saw and fell in love with an obscure British movie called Pandora and the Flying Dutchman (1951). I’m not quite sure why it’s so obscure – it has a great cast. Read more…

As promised, here’s a quick rundown of the Romance Writers of Australia conference which took place at the QT Hotel on the Gold Coast between 16th and 19th August 2012. Read more…

 

September 2012 – Worth Every Penny
I’ve picked up a lot of great books as the result of popping into a blog and getting a recommendation. At the moment, I’m on a mystery craze and recommendations have come in very handy as I’m out of the swing in any genre other than romance. Read more…

 

August 2012 – 80s Hair Bands Galore (part 2)

June 2012 – Swans + Lake = Magic
I’ve had a wonderful time putting together this month’s post. Youtube and I have become as one!  I’ve always loved ballet. Right from when I was a little girl, it just seemed so magical and beautiful.  Read more…

 

May 2012 – Enchanted by the Enchanted Forest!
I was a voracious reader from the moment I worked out what those scratchy little black marks on paper meant; I started reading adult fiction quite young. As a result, I never read a lot of kids’ books like the “Narnia” series that people quote as their favorite reading as young uns. Read more…

April 2012 – Klimt Every Mountain!
Yes, I know, that’s a truly awful pun! All I can say is it fits with the Rodgers and Hammerstein theme of My Favorite Things. 2012 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of the brilliant Viennese artist Gustav Klimt. Read more…

March 2012 – Better Leighton than Never! (part 2)
Well, having had a nice rave about Frederic, Lord Leighton’s art last month, I’ll now talk about what I originally intended to cover. The house and studio in Holland Park (near Kensington) where he lived for most of his life from 1866 until his death laden with honors and admiration 30 years later. Read more…

Today, I’d like to talk to you about a museum in London that’s a bit of a hidden treasure – and just the thing to gladden a romance writer’s heart. It’s Leighton House in Kensington, the home and studio of famous Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton. Read more…
