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 Old Ways

Lilith walked the salt fields, testing each step with her cane. The young ones thought she did it because it was an old tradition. Tradition? What rot. When she first came to this planet with the colonizing expedition from Earth the land had been far less stable. Too many of her fellow colonists had died when the salt flats gave under them unexpectedly. They’d done a lot to stabilize the land, just as they’d done to make the atmosphere breathable. But she could never convince the kids they needed to be cautious. So she did the checking herself.

13 Pictures From a Mountain

1.We started off on the Excalibur Gondola to Blackcomb, which is on the most southern part of Whistler Village. Notice that the gondola accommodated bicycles as well as people.

Suzie’s House 374 : Gene Writes a Song

Suzie's House

Gene felt like a total idiot sitting there in the back yard with a pencil in his hand and a notebook on his lap. Maybe he should at least get his guitar. But he’d already tried this a dozen times with his guitar and his room was so stuffy. At least it was breezy out here.

A Wild Pursuit by Eloisa James p. 342

Could she possibly marry Stephen? She, with her tarnished reputation and a malevolent influence that apparently extended to babes in the nursery?

A rather stiff-neck character indicated her presence in the house shouldn’t be tolerated because of the existence of a baby.

Long Weekend

I spent the entire weekend cleaning my rental house. I used to live there, so seeing what the renters did is painful. Took some paint, Formula 409, and elbow grease, but at least we made a dent. I’m so tired. Now to see what the new renters have to say about it.

Through The Glass Darkly

“These old houses are such a pain,” said Jane. “Just look at how warped this mirror is. I’ve been trying to do my makeup for an hour now. Not only does my reflection look strange, it jumps and moves when I’m hardly even breathing. And it’s so dark! What kind of silver did they use on it? Really, Marge, you should replace it immediately.”

“Um…. Jane? Are you talking about that?” Marge pointed.

“Yes, of course. The mirror.”

“That’s not a mirror. It’s a window.”

T13: Whistler

1. Whistler is a singularly unnatural town. This is particularly ironic considering how much it caters to nature enthusiasts. Like many cities in the Pacific Northwest, the thick vegetation tends to hide everything. This walking bridge is right in the middle of town.

Suzie’s House 373 : On the Side of Truth and Justice

Suzie's House

“So this is where you’ve been hiding.” Tracy grabbed Lisa’s arm and spun her around right before she and Ben went into the public library.

Lisa wasn’t really avoiding Tracy, though she kind of suspected what her cousin wanted to say. She was here because this was where she and Ben were spending most of their summer vacation. Yeah, geek city. It had to do with researching the books they were writings, but you couldn’t get something like that through to Tracy.

The Awakening by Kate Chopin p. 113

“It seems to me the utmost folly for a woman at the head of a household, and the mother of children, to spend in an atelier days which would be better employed contriving for the comfort of her family.” (says the husband.)

“I feel like painting,” answered Edna.

My dd is way ahead of me in it now. I let other things distract me.

Pardon Me

Please pardon me while I continue to freak out about the condition of my web site. I was planning on talking about Whistler today, since it’s more or less in chronological order. Instead, you get a random picture of a glacier. I’ll do something about Whistler on Thursday.

Last week was quite the trying week for me. It started when the people who have been renting my old house for the last five years called to let me know they were moving. To Texas. And they weren’t planning on paying this months rent.

I updated both WordPress and Atahualpa. Apparently I should not have. As you see, I’ve had a bit of a melt down where my header is concerned. I’ve already been working on it for a day with no solutions in sight. I couldn’t even get a widget set up that would give you access to my pages. So for the time being, please accept this:

Hopefully I’ll get it squared away soon.



Liam, Alicia, and Sally sat around the campfire, each with a marshmallow on a stick.

“Do you see faces in the flames? I see faces,” Alicia said.

“I just see fire.” Sally gave her marshmallow a practiced turn.

“I see the burning of the soul on a bitter and parched plane while the darkness of a yawning separation strangles a man’s words before they can be born. I see generation after generation of men struggling through a short life, never able to whisper a single word of love.”

“Wow. I think I love you,” Alicia sighed.

He gave Sally a look of yearning.

“You’re marshmallow’s on fire.” She never even glanced at him.
