T’was six days before Christmas and all through my homeMy mind was out wandering, my thoughts were in RomeMy book had been written, all published with careIn the hopes you would like it, and then you would shareMy darling was nestled all snug and onlineWhile I kept checking what reviews would be mineMamma at her computer, checking all dayIn hopes that a reviewer would soon come her wayWhen out in the UK their arose such a critiqueI squealed like a girl at this audit unique...more
Today I have a guest post by someone I admire beyond reason. She is raising not just one redhead, but two! Even though the scarlet mane munchkins keep her hopping, Ainsley has recently released book one of a trilogy called Star of Prophecy.
I grew up in Kentucky with a chunk of living in Georgia there in the middle. My experience with snow is not what you would call vast. I know the stuff is slippery, and I know to drive cautiously, but that’s about it. What I did NOT know is that a snow bank, given a few days to melt a little and refreeze overnight, turns into a form of concrete....more

Y’all, I am pleased to announce that I, Betty Fokker writing under the nom de plume S y l v i a K e t r i e (let’s not link the two names on the web, lest my opinions offend/scare some innocent reader) have produced a romance novel. Apparently, hanging out with fiction writers is catching. Who knew?
The title of said book is Tempted By Infamy and I am asking you all very nicely to buy it for the very reasonable sum of $2.99. Unless that isn’t your thing, in which case just ignore the request.
Here’s what it looks like on Amazon.
Riddle me this? Say a kid and his friends stole beer from a Wal-Mart, got blind drunk on it, ate some valium to get that buzz really humming, then that kid got back into the truck to make another “beer run” whereupon he smashed into a group of Good Samaritans helping a young woman with her disabled vehicle and killed them all … wouldn’t you think some form of punishment should be in order?...more
My neck of the wood got hit by the snowpocalypse on Friday, so for three days the girls were trapped inside. Yes, until Sunday afternoon it was too bitter cold for them to go outside. Hell, I thought I might have to go free my doggie if his pee froze and trapped him in a snow bank by the pissicicle connecting his wiener to the ground, that’s how cold it was. I know there are people in Canada laughing at me right now because the temps were in the single digits (not even below zero degrees Fahrenheit, eh?) but it was fokking chilly....more
The is the time of year when people remember to slam one of the most significant fictional characters every created – Scrooge. Everyone knows to abhor Scrooge because he is selfish, embittered, solitary, and unsociable with no more concern for his fellow man than a whelk. He was the epitome of Victorian England’s version of Wall Street. In short, he sucked the hairy meatball....more
An Italian woman attending a training course in Britain was sedated and had her fetus forcibly removed without her consent by Essex social services. No, this is not the plot of a dystopian thriller like The Handmaid’s Tale. This really happened. The dystopian future of feminist nightmares is now....more
