My Book:


For Moving In

Seriously Reviewed said "You know? Every so often you read a story that starts a little slow on the first few pages and then.....BAM it just explodes! This was one of them for me."

Kaye's Book Review Page
on which she said The book is "short, sweet, light-hearted and just plain fun."

Vince at Philosophy of Romance said "Alice Audrey’s voice is fresh, feisty, full of surprises and always fun. The author also deals with real people having real problems and she does it in a very insightful way."

Nessa at Chrysalis Stage said "If you like sweet, fast-paced romance with a hot hero and all of the misunderstandings that two people can throw at each other, then you will love this story."

Night Owl Reviews didn't have anything nice to say about it. Hey, you can't win them all.

Brenda Talley of Romance Studio said " I recommend this book to anyone. It was a pleasure to read and I shall look for more of her work in the future. "

By Guta Bauer at Murphy's Library did it twice! Once in English and once in Portuguese. I'm assuming they both say, "Life goes on, choices need to be made and we can never let our past deny us of our future. That’s just some of the things we learn from this story. "

Sandra Nachlinger said "It's been a while since I've read a novelette, and I enjoyed this quick read. MOVING IN by Alice Audrey is a sweet story (rated PG or maybe even G) laced with humor. The best friend character is a hoot! This book is a fun escape and just what I needed to read today."

If you did a review of my book, let me know! I'll be glad to link to you, even if you didn't like the book.

The Awakening by Kate Chopin p. 2

The parrot and the mockingbird were the property of Madame Lebrun, and they had the right to make all the noise they wished. Mr. Pontellier had the privilege of quitting their society when they ceased to be entertaining.

I’m helping my dd get her homework done by reading along with her. Her punishment for not keeping up is to refuse to talk to her about anything until she catches up.

Lake Louse, Again

My previous post on Lake Louse was just a quick photo, so I thought I should probably talk about it at more length.

Lake Louse (the lake, as opposed to the nearby town) is a glacier-fed lake in Banff which sits around 5,000 feet above sea level. For me, that’s right at home. We stopped off to see it on our way to our hotel. Good thing, too, because the weather was great then, and miserable the next day.

Pillow Talk

Theodor: Yes, I know Jack doesn’t want you in the house; but don’t worry. I have a plan. He’ll never know you’re here.

Previously in Jack and Jill: Fledgling CEO

The theme for this week’s Jack and Jill is “pillow” as suggested by Heather

“Nature! I love it.” Alicia ran into the grass in the side yard with her arms spread wide and a huge grin. She did a pirouette.

“You can have it,” her friend Sally grumbled. She was tired of hearing her city-girl friend go on about every little thing.

“You’re just spoiled because you can be out in the Great Outdoors every day.”

“I wouldn’t step there if I were you. Or at least go back and put your shoes on.”

“Would you quit spoiling it for me? Wait. Eeeeeeww. What is that?”

“It’s the Great Outdoors.”

T13: Walking on a Glacier

1. There’s a tour that will let you walk on the Athabasca Glacier in the Columbia Icefield, which is about an hour and a half’s drive North of Banff.

Suzie’s House 371 : I am Not a Victim

Suzie's House

“I don’t even know how I feel,” Gene growled. “But it isn’t good.”

“So now you think there’s something wrong with me, right? I’m dirty, or pathetic, or something.” Tracy glared. She sat in one of the upright lawn chairs with her arms crossed.

Gene stood over her, looking young and mature by turns. Drew lay in the lounger. He sat up and set his feet in the grass with every intention of slipping out of the backyard with as little fanfare as possible.

A Wild Pursuit by Eloisa James P.9

“I forgot to tell you, Aunt Arabella, that I’ve become respectable.”

Arabella blinked and then snorted. “You? Why on earth would you wish to do such an odd thing?”

My mother, daughter, and I went for a little road trip through Canada. We went straight North to Banff, then headed West to Whistler, then a little more West to Vancouver Island. I didn’t check the odometer, but I’m guessing we covered about 3,000 miles in two weeks.

Fledgling CEO

Jill: Theodor, did you say something to Jack about his job hunt? He’s been behaving strangely lately.

Theodor: We did discuss his predicament. I suggested he go into business for himself, perhaps in something in the way of transportation.

Jill: You didn’t tell him he could fly, did you?


At the End of the World

It would be there, right where he left it. Everything else in the world may have turned upside down since the virus escaped from the lab, but his truck would be safe. He’d left it where the zombie’s had never appeared. No matter how much his lab partners teased, he’d always kept the gas tank full, a week’s rations in the back, and copies of the keys to every place he might want to go. Down to his last ounce of strength, he crawled toward the back of the parking lot.

13 Things Said in a Moving Car

I just got back from a road trip through Canada. Here are some of the off-hand comments made while there:

1. Watch out for the bicycle. No, not that one. Or that one. Oh, never mind.

2. What’s the difference between a road sign with a horse and a road sign with a horse being ridden?

3. Slow Down! It’s supposed to be 80 KILOMETERS per hour, not miles.

4. But everyone around us is going faster!

5. Merge left! The lane ends now.

6. Is that a snow field or just another glacier?

7. Check out that ski-lift. It looks like it comes right in to town.

8. What’s that weird stuff hanging off the cliffs? Is that a net?

9. Watch out! We have to merge left again.

10. Wow, there really is a goat on the roof.

11. How much gas is left? Uh-oh.

12. Stop! I want a picture!

13. (Parroting the voice of the GPS system) “And then… left turn.” Shouldn’t that be merge left?

Suzie’s House 370 : A Gentleman’s Discussion

Suzie's House

“What would you do if you found out your girlfriend had been raped?” Gene asked the question out of the blue.

“I’d hunt the bast*rd down and kill him.” Drew didn’t consider his answer. It sprang to his lips without volition. Then he realized he probably shouldn’t have said something like that.

“Yeah.” Gene actually smiled and nodded. “I’d like to.”

He lifted his head from the plastic, chase-style, lawn chair to look where Gene sat on the other side of a little glass side table that Miranda had dragged into the yard before telling Drew he worked too hard and should take a break.

If he hadn’t been tired or crazy, he’d never have blurted out such a bad suggestion to a teenage boy. Who knows? He might actually try to kill someone.

On the Road Again

I’m wandering around in the Canadian Rockies right now. I have no idea when or where I will run into a hotspot, let alone when I will be able to carve the time out to post. So, I’m not going to commit to anything from now until August 23rd. So – no Tuesday Teasers, no Suzie’s House, no Thursday Thirteen, no Friday Fictioneers, and no Jack and Jill until then.

BUT, I will be posting random posts about my trip. I’ll reply to all comments, and come visit the blogs of anyone who has left a comment – even if the comment is only a reply to my reply.

Yeah. I’m that bad about blogging. :)

Anyway, if you don’t hear from me for a few days, it’s because I’m busy, but I’ll get back to you.


Suzie’s House 369 : What Happened in Vegas

Suzie's House

“Tracy was raped in Las Vegas,” Lisa said is if that was the kind of thing she had a right to say.

“I was not!” Tracy looked from Lisa to Gene, willing him to ignore Lisa.

“How can you say that? It was vicious. You had finger shaped bruises on your neck.”
