Dragonwall, and the lunatics who use it.

Dragonwall and the lunatics who use it. When I'm researching for novels, I end up in some very strange territory sometimes. Especially with the new Project Kobra series, I often wondered if I was setting off alarm bells in a cubicle at the NSA, or the counter-terrorism unit of the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police),

Pirates, Highlanders and Historical Personages.

Monday's Facebook Live session nearly didn't happen. When you get your "I'm live in 30 minutes" warning, I also get a copy. Guess where I was when my phone dinged me? I was 15km away from home, shopping with my Mum, who returns to Australia tomorrow morning. That was the fastest drive back home on

New Year Resolutions, Romanceland Style

If you overindulged last night, you have my commiserations.  As a non-drinker (I'm allergic to alcohol), I have the advantage of naturally avoiding miserable January Firsts.  :) Happy New Year, no matter what your state!

Reading More Books, Keeping Your FitBit Happy, and more.

Monday's Facebook live session was a doozy. 1) Comments worked!  I cannot tell you how awkward it felt, the week before, when I couldn't see everyone's comments. I had not realized how much the FB live sessions were a two-way street until then. So I was very relieved when the first comment showed up. (I think that

How Do *You* Find More Time to Read More Books…?

Monday's FB Live was a bit of a disaster, as I couldn't see comments.  I still don't know why that happened, but I felt like I was talking to a vacuum.  It's surprising how much difference your comments make. One of the things I was ​going​ to cover was a general discussion of ways to find
