Badge of Honor – a medieval romance

My very first self published romance novel is ready! I do not make any money from the sales of this book – I have it set to the base printing price. I am testing out how self publishing works and how to get books listed in Amazon. If you have any questions – or would like a signed copy – be sure to contact me!

Vet Database

I’ve created a new veterinarian database for all of us pet lovers to share information about the doctors who take care of our cats, dogs, birds and other animal friends! Please add your listings here. This way if people still need help with the pet food recall, or have other emergencies, they’ll know where to turn.

New Irish Photos

I’ve loaded up a bunch of my favorite Irish photos on my book website –

“”Ireland Photo Album

Enjoy a glimpse of the beautiful landscapes, flora and fauna that populate this jewelled isle! I’ll try to load in more photos as I get time to scan them. I took that trip back when I still had a film camera 🙂

IMPORTANT – Huge Pet Food Recall

The maker of Nutro Natural Choice, Iams, and MANY other food products for cats and dog has announced a recall – apparently the food is causing kidney failure and death for many pets!

If you have a cat or dog, PLEASE check all your food to make sure it’s not included! We feed our cats both Iams wet food (pouch) and Nutro Natural Choice and BOTH are on their recall list. We’re going to go to our local pet store tomorrow to ask them what to do.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day is a day for everyone to drink Irish beer, to eat corned beef & cabbage, and to celebrate the great traditions of the Celts and Irish!

What are some flowers to decorate your Irish-themed event with? Roses are always romantic and popular – think of “My Wild Irish Rose”! Foxglove represents youth and innocence. The Bells of Ireland are lucky flowers, for starting new projects. Heather is not only very traditional in Ireland – but different colors have different meanings! Pink is for luck, purple is for admiration, and white is for safety.

Be sure to avoid lilacs and apple blossoms! Both are thought to be unlucky in Irish culture.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s the day to let those who you love know it! Call up your family and friends. Let them know how much you care for them. If you’ve got a partner, snuggle up. If you don’t, hang out with friends or pamper yourself for the evening! I’ve finally finished watching all Native American movies Netflix had to offer. Now it’s time to finish revising my book on Native American romantic traditions!
