People are always asking me how I come up with some of my ________ ideas. Please pick from one of the following to fill in the blank: good, bad, crazy, off the wall. Honestly, I do have strange ideas, and they seep into almost every aspect of my live.
I’m a published author, and my writing spans from Southern Women’s Humor about a female tow truck driver in a small town in
to a dark fiction about an abused woman who kills her husband. In the middle of that mix are a few mysteries and even a paranormal romance. Georgia
I’ve been known to throw theme parties from elegant dinner affairs to an author/agent reception for my local romance writers’ chapter. Every room in my house was decorated to represent a different romance genre—a Medieval Faire, Murder on the Orient Express, Little House on the Prairie.
I’ve also been known to feed full-scale meals for anywhere from 25 to 50 people out of the small kitchen in our recreational vehicle. Or, 225 people in our barn when I celebrated my twenty-ninth annual twenty-ninth birthday. I’ll do the math for you. I was turning 58.
Those are the kinds of ideas people always want to know where in my brain they come from. I think it is an affliction caused by the paste I ate in the first grade. That’s about the only thing I haven’t heard named as cause for our health decline in later years. But I’m thinking I might be on to something. You be the judge.
