1) I’m in a huge cabin in Lake Tahoe surrounded by writers. That’s a bit like being at a chocolate convention – we all love, and do, the same thing. It’s like MAGIC. 2) It snowed this morning. I live in Florida. I never get to see snow. It was MAGICAL. 3) Speaking of chocolate, […]
My birthday rolled around while Hot Cop and I were in Scotland. On that morning, I got up to make some coffee, and when I came back, two Tiffany boxes had been gently placed on my pillow. One box contained Tiffany’s Gatsby-inspired 1920s pearl earrings, and the other contained the matching necklace. All told, it […]

Whether you’re a tailor, author, tanner, small business owner, receptionist, sales rep, painter, shoe maker, dog sitter, lingerie company president, chef, airplane mechanic, media specialist, […]
You guys know how I love a good sign, especially the ones that make me laugh. Here are a few of my most recent finds: We all know cleanliness is important. Be sure you scrub behind your er, years. Considering a good psychic scrubbing is only $2.50, this seems a bit overpriced just to spruce […]

Hot Cop and I were talking about ‘people we know’ the other day, and I told him I believe there are only two types of people – the joiners and the watchers. I’m a watcher. I am fascinated with people – how they think, what makes them passionate, who they care for and why, how […]
I’d tell sixteen year old me that the best things in life will be my kiddos and not to let one second of laughter or giggles be pushed aside for house cleaning or ‘must dos’ that aren’t ‘must’ at all. I’d tell sixteen year old me not to marry a man who ‘needs’ you. Look […]
Yesterday’s post by Suzanne Enoch about her collection made me to think about what I do when I’m not writing. Other than reading research books, my favorite thing to do is attend estate sales. Because this is Florida, most estate sales are living estate sales — the owners of the property are usually moving in […]

Karen Hawkins and Julia London are doing a joint blog today. Why? We don’t know, but hey, they offered, and we figured what the heck. Besides, they both have releases the final week of this month, which always makes authors ‘play nice.’ At least for a day or two. Whatever you do, keep an eye […]
From time to time, we here on Mt. Oly have a GETTING TO KNOW YOU QUIZ. I love these quizzes because I always, ALWAYS find out some interesting facts about you guys that might not normally come up in the day-to-day business of blogging. For days after we have one of these quizzes, I’ll see […]
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each and every one of you! The goddesses would like to take this time to thank you for sharing, caring, and being such a lovely part of our lives. WE LOVE YOU AND HOPE YOUR DAY IS THE MERRIEST!
The goddesses wish all of you and yours a very, very lovely holiday! Please be safe in your travels. To celebrate, we thought ask a very simple question and then randomly draw two names from the comments on this post. Those two people will receive two autographed goddess books each. How’s THAT for some holiday […]
I’ve had a heck of a few weeks. On the good side: My book HOW TO CAPTURE A COUNTESS hit the NYT list (thanks to all of you who gave it a chance!); my favorite (and only) niece had a terrific birthday complete with a pink-frosted zebra-striped cake; I finally turned in my next book […]
You guys know how I love signs — the good ones, the bad ones, the confusing ones — I love them all. As I drift through the net when not working, I collect the best signs and bring them here, to share with you guys. Here are the latest in my collection: Here’s something you […]
The Goddesses wish a happy Independence Day to all of our Goddess Readers from the USA!
For as long as I can remember, certain things make me slow down, smile, and sigh. And not just any sigh, but a deep, relaxed, heart-warmed sigh. What makes me sigh? Things like lightning bugs flickering at night . . . the sight or sound of an ocean . . . the smell of fresh […]
This week, two of our goddesses had new books on the shelves with two very different but equally yummy heroes. First, from Susan Mallery’s SUMMER DAYS, is Rafe Stryker. Rafe is a Rafe made my knees turn to jelly and my heart pound. He is DELICIOUS. Next is Vince Haven from Rachel Gibson’s RESCUE ME. […]

May your coming year be joyous, loving, and filled with good books, great friends, and a happy and healthy family!
You guys know how I love those wacky street signs, the ones that you drive by and then think, “What in the heck did THAT mean?” I especially love signs like the ones below: Sign 1: This looks like a hairy person throwing a head and a wrench. Why would a hairy person throw a […]
