If I were to write myself as a character, I’d make me and lot smarter than I am. I’d know things that would make the reader’s heads spin. Like how DSL works, or why when we get older we forget the simplest of stuff. In reality, I’m a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, but in my books … oh, these would be a series, I’d be a really smart detective … think Lauren Bacall in her early years. I’d kick ass and take names, and make those sorry who ever crossed me. And I’d know how DSL works. I’d also know why men are the way they are. Can’t close anything they open and that includes their fly.

Anyway, I might not be beautiful, but nice looking, but with a mouth on me that would keep the worst guys at bay. And I’d own a 2011 Thunderbird, red as a fire engine.

I'm primarily a writer, but I also speak and teach workshops and co-chair a large critique group. My brand is SexyDarkGritty and that applies to my western historical romances, mysteries, women's fiction and horror novels. After almost 30 years in this business, I still have something to learn and attend conferences to network with other writers, publishers, editors and agents.

    What a dame! As those back in the day might say. I wonder if some of that kick-ass gal doesn't live down deep in a lot of us, but we keep her tamed. 🙂 Anyway, she would be a marvelous character.

    Wow, I want to be you and your pretend you. Lauren Bacall, I am more of a Katherine Hepburn I think…love the glamor of old Hollywood. Imagine what those same women would be like now!

  3. I too would love to have met them back in the day. I was a kid and collected signed photos. Sure wish my mother or I had thought to keep my collection. I remember Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, Tony Curtis and many others. Dare not start naming them.Thanks for the comment.
