Back From the Future Blog Hop

I love my pub sister Nicki Elson. She's joining Suz and M Pax to host this fun blog hop!



We're heading to the year 2023, back from the future style:

You're up before dawn on a Saturday when the doorbell rings. You haven't brewed your coffee so you wonder if you imagined the sound. Plonking the half-filled carafe in the sink, you go to the front door and cautiously swing it open. No one there. As you cast your eyes to the ground, you see a parcel addressed to you ... from you.

You scoop it up and haul it inside, sensing something legitimate despite the extreme oddness of the situation. Carefully, you pry it open. Inside is a shoebox -- sent from ten years in the future -- and it's filled with items you have sent yourself.

What's in it?

What's in my time capsule, from the year 2023?

1) A swimsuit from the future. You think Speedo's material is "fast-skin" now? Just wait!


2) A photo of the man I marry at age 50 (once I'm ready to settle down). If he has eyes similar to Wentworth Miller's, I wouldn't complain!


3) A treatment that cures obesity, to improve health and decrease bullying:


4) A copy of my New Adult romance novel (which I've yet to write) that really connects with readers:


What's in YOUR time capsule? Check out what these bloggers have to say:

CRAZY, STUPID LOVE: New Adult Giveaway

Thanks to Talk Supe for hosting this event. Some of my favorite NA reads include Slammed, Point of Retreat, Where She Went, Easy, Flat Out Love...and Poughkeepsie.

The Ebb and Flow of Two Careers

Time for the Insecure Writers Support Group. One insecurity is that I'm three days late on my post! Thank you to Alex Cavanaugh for hosting this awesome meme.


Since it's rare to make a living as an author, I'm sure many of us have day jobs. I'm a psychologist, and I've been wrapped up in writing and delivering two big presentations the past week (hence the delay in my post). I traveled all the way to Big Sky, Montana for my first presentation.


Isn't it gorgeous? A big sky indeed. I teamed up with four other psychologists to present on gender issues in my field. I mentioned how I didn't get one job because I wasn't "a guy's guy". Yep, I'm not!


I'm not much of a skier, but I did decide to try cross country skiing with two psych buddies. I felt like I was about to fall every second, even on flat ground, but at least it was a sunny day. It was great to see friends and mentors.

When I returned home I scrambled to prepare another presentation, and this one went well too. I'm glad to be done with presentations for a while!

Writing has been at a standstill since I FINISHED my fourth novel! Yahoo. On Best Behavior (The Conduct Series #3) is on submission with my publisher.

And finally, I'm excited about the approach of Valentine's Day (aka Singles Awareness Day) because it's my birthday AND Omnific Publishing will give away three loaded Kindles to celebrate their third anniversary. Stop back on the 14th to enter the giveaway.
