Before Ever After: A Novel Pre-Order

The Great Green Eggs and Ham Eggsperiment #4 : Surf’s Up!

Hey, guys! Welcome to the fourth installment of The Great Green Eggs and Ham Eggsperiment where I share the new things I’ve tried during the week. This week, I’m cheating. This isn’t the first time I’ve surfed but it is the first time I’m daring to post photos of myself looking like a beached whale in all my post-holiday blubber glory.

Are you ready? Try not to scratch your eyes out.

The Great Green Eggs and Ham Eggsperiment Episode 3 (a.k.a. the only blog post where you will find Daniel Craig, Crickets, Bikes, and Tigers on the same page.)

Happy New Year, guys! Hope your year is off to a good start! Mine has so far involved a bout with stomach flu, a mouth sore, and a mouse in the bathroom. But hey, I’m not complaining. I’m still certainly better off than the  mouse. May he rest in pieces.

Before we get to the first Green Eggs and Ham Eggsperiment of the year, I thought I’d give a little new year’s treat to the twenty people who find my blog each day by typing in “How old is Daniel Craig?”

The answer is…

I’m not here right now. Please leave a message at the sound of the beep. *Beep*

I started this blog as a chronicle of the days leading up to the publication of my novel (and as an attempt not to go crazy while waiting for D-Day.) The book has been out in the wild since August and life has changed a bit since then. For one, more people find this blog now by searching for “Before Ever After” than typing in “Daniel Craig is hot.” (But in case you are looking for a sizzling pic of Mr. Craig, you can find it here.  Go ahead. Take a peek. I know you want to.).

Green Pigs, Book Panels, and Other Things that Gobble Up Time

Hey, guys! November has been another crazy  busy month. Wrestling with second novel (*insert desperate scream here*) + speaking engagements + kid 1′s homework + kid 2′s piano practice + writing commitments + book club invitations + Angry Birds =  where the *bleep* did all my time go???

It’s Sunday morning now and I’ve found a pocket of time to come up for some air and share a little bit of the parts of my life where I’m not shuttling the kids around in sweaty gym clothes.

Hong Kong, Halloween, and Happy Campers

I cannot plan a birthday party to save my life. The last time my kids had an honest to goodness birthday party with all the trimmings was when they turned a year old. The next time they will have one is when they can put the event together themselves and all I have to do is show up and eat cake. To make up for my acute lack of party planning skills, we take them on birthday trips.

What do the Tardis, the US Congress, and Crickets Have in Common?

No, this is not a trick question. I just got back a whirlwind trip to the West Coast and I assure you that I’m still too jet lagged to come up with puzzles or play tricks. The answer is simple: ME! :) These three things were just some of the pleasant surprises during my trip. But I am getting ahead of my story. Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
