Do you get as distracted as I do by all those bookshelves behind the talking heads on TV? It's hard for me to keep up with Judy Woodruff and the PBS Newshour when they broadcast out of the studio, presumably in the anchor and reporters' homes. I'm more curious about the books they read than... Continue Reading →
What’s Not to Love About College Team Nicknames?
With the NCAA Basketball Tournament in full-court press these days, it's easy for me to pick teams, even though my favorites lost early and are no longer in contention. I had hoped for a good game between the Akron Zips and the Zags (okay, technically Gonzaga's team is actually called the Bulldogs….), but that won't... Continue Reading →
As I mentioned last time, I try to limit my TV viewing time... but I have to confess it's been fascinating to see how some shows have been adapting to the stay-at-home orders. Which women are letting their hair coloring fade back to a natural color? Which men are able to tame longer locks? Those... Continue Reading →
Oh, it's been too long since I've posted here. Much has been going on behind the screen of this blog -- including my finishing and publishing the third Rollin RV Mystery, "Superstition Victim." Good thing I finished the book a few months ago. I don't think I'd be able to focus on it these days.... Continue Reading →
Flu? Superbug? Pneumonia?
Okay, this won't explain a gap of six months or more between blog posts, but maybe it will make you feel sorry for me and excuse my absence.... We got that awful flu. Or maybe it was a superbug. We meaning my husband and I. He got the symptoms first and I tried not to... Continue Reading →

Deb herself is great at this. A fellow RVing author, she pens mysteries and romances. You can read my post here. And while... Continue Reading →
Fellow RV Mystery Writers: MJ Williams
After I read On the Road to Death's Door, by MJ Williams, I had to find out more about its author -- or, I should say, authorS. MJ Williams is a pen name for sisters-in-law Peggy Joque Williams and Mary Joy Johnson (nee Williams). These women balance other professional interests with their collaborative writing efforts...

Fellow RV Novelists: Deb Sanders
It's been awhile since we've peeked into the lives of RVing writers, so it's great to introduce another fellow traveler and scribbler. Deb Sanders writes a variety of books -- mystery, romance, fantasy, paranormal thrillers...! And she's prolific, having penned at least eight books to date. How does she manage this while on the road?... Continue Reading →
Fellow RV Novelists: Judy Howard
Judy Howard's books have been very popular since she started writing them. Through her workshops and presentations she's inspired many other to pick up the pen or start typing, including many RVers. We're happy to be able to share some of her thoughts about her writing in general and writing as an RVer in specific.... Continue Reading →
Fellow RV Novelists: Janetta Fudge-Messmer
I confess upfront I'm not a reader of romance novels, so Janetta Fudge-Messmer's Early Birds isn't a book I'd normally pick up to read. But when I saw the series features RVing couple Ben and Betsy Stevenson, I not only read it but asked Janetta if she'd be willing to submit herself to an ellenbooks... Continue Reading →
