Guilty Pleasures Abound

Guilty pleasures. We all have them. Those little things we know we shouldn’t be wasting our good time on but we do anyway because we just can’t HELP ourselves. Some of my guilty pleasures include:

Harvest Moon Games – I like making every character in the village madly in love with me before breaking their little hearts one by one. I recently banned myself from playing this game for a while so I can get actually some writing done.

Cheesecake Factory’s White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake – Probably has enough calories to last a week but oh so good!

Pixel Chix – I’m still waiting for them to create a mermaid aquarium and a virtual haunted house for boys. Any day now, Mattel.

Sammy Keyes Novels – Will Sammy and Casey ever get together? Will horrible Heather get her comeuppance? I can’t wait to see.

Nancy Drew Video Games – It’s a good thing they only release two of these games a year, because I hardly eat or sleep until I’ve figured out who done it.

Period Films by BBC, A&E, and Mobil Masterpiece Theater – What’s not to love?

Got your own guilty pleasures? Feel free to share.

Sammy Keyes Fans Unite!

I just discovered that the new Sammy Keyes book is coming out December 9th! It will be called Sammy Keyes and the Cold Hard Cash. If you can’t tell, I’m a real fan of the series. For anyone out there who hasn’t read the Sammy Keyes mysteries, you need to run down to the nearest library and put one on hold immediately. The high-top wearing seventh grader, Samantha Keyes doesn’t go looking for mysteries to solve they just seem to find her. The series is filled with exciting mysteries, best friends who keep secrets, worst enemies who make life miserable, and the greatest mystery of all—boys. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time as I did while reading the most recent book, Sammy Keyes and the Wild Things. I will never see camping in the same light again. I also think I know who Sammy's father is (and no, it's not Hudson). I'm not going to write who I think it is yet because I don't want to ruin things for others. : )

I can’t wait to find out what Sammy will get up to in this next book.

Sneak Peak

Here is a drawing of a main character of a story I'm currently working on. Will she ever see the light of publication? Who knows. What kind of adventures await her? You'll have to wait and see.
