#1lineWed

I've been enjoying the Twitter hashtag #1lineWed for a while now. An RWA romantic suspense chapter asks writers to post one line from a book they are currently writing in the genre. Each week there is a theme. Today's was "action". One week it was "dialogue". I've loved reading the clever tweets written by other writers as well.

Here are a few lines I've posted over the weeks from Sarah's Second Chance, my romantic mystery.

1. Looking out the store window, I glimpsed flecks of white confetti-like stuff swirling through the sky. 

2. Greyson was standing there in his finery, donning a slick fedora dusted with snow.

3. “How was school?”
“Not good.”
“What happened?”
"This kid tried to cut my finger off with safety scissors.” 

4. As the sun set in Siletz Bay, we watched the ships sail in the distance.

5. We bellied up to the buffet. Vats of steak, penne pasta, pineapple cubes, tubs of jello and chocolate pudding seduced us. #1lineWed

Cake Mix Cobbler

When I need a break from writing, I bake! We have peaches on our tree and frozen berries. This is the perfect recipe for using both. Versions of this recipe are all over the internet. This is my version that is tweaked a little to use less cake mix to make it more of a crumble than a cake.

Here is the recipe:

Peach/Berry Cobbler

Grease 8X8 pan

3-4 cups of fresh or frozen peaches and berries
1 1/4 cups of yellow cake mix
1/4 cup of melted butter

Put the fruit in the pan and sprinkle the cake mix over the top.
Drizzle the butter over the top of the cake mix.

Bake for 45 minutes at 375.

If you have super tart fruit, like blackberries, feel free to toss them with sugar before adding the topping. I find peaches are sweet enough and don't need the added sugar. We like to serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Bon Apetit!


Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.
