About Skating on Thin Ice

Sam Walters has made a deal with the devil.

In order to win a much-needed contract as physical therapist to one of the NHL’s leading hockey teams, Sam must delay the recovery of their sniper, Mac Wanowski. The trouble is, the more she gets to know the taciturn hockey player, the more she aches to help him.

Mac ‘The Hammer’ Wanowski chased the Stanley Cup dream for too many years. Last time he was close it had cost him his wife. As injuries continue to plague the team, Mac works to catch a killer and keep the woman he’s come to love from the hands of a madman.

Hockey can be a dangerous sport, especially when millions of dollars are at stake.

A visit from the bossy muse, a free book, and a couple of awards


One of my favorite authors, D. Wallace Peach has a #free book for you and a couple of well-deserved finalist awards to share. Oh, and you’re going to love her muse, lol

Myths of the Mirror

The muse’s latest look (pixabay compilation)

Way too early in the morning, my muse drops down beside me on my couch and tosses her hat onto the coffee table. The howler monkey that’s been riding her shoulder for a year leaps onto my kitchen counter, curls back its rubbery lips, and flashes a yellow-toothed grin. The muse hands me a latte. “Nice progress on the draft… finally.”

“Thanks.” I’m still leering at the monkey but manage to sip my latte. Yum. “So, why the visit?  You know I’m under NaNo pressure.” I somehow forget to mention that yesterday I logged zero words.

She arches an eyebrow but for once shrugs off her annoyance. “I’m running a promotion for a couple of days. Catling’s Bane is free today and Wednesday. Your sales blah blah blah…” I’m not listening. The howler’s opened my refrigerator and taken a bite from a head of…

“Date Jack?” I asked ever-so-casually as if I never even considered the possibility. The bravery seed expanded and fortified me. “Where did you get the idea? I’m clueless.”

Vicki Batman


She’d been crying, her eyes red and swollen, her voice husky, and yet she stood there before his friends, unbowed, ready to grab a dragon by the tail if it meant protecting her daughter. He’d never seen anyone braver, or more compelling.

Jacquie Biggar


I held her tightly as my eyes welled with tears. I was so grateful and proud of this brave young woman.

Joanne Guidoccio


NO. She owned who she was and how she felt, and if it was too much for a big, brave guy like Broughton to handle, well…

#SoCS – A poem – Do you want it enough?


Robbie Cheadle poses an interesting question; fame or family?

Roberta Writes

You tell me you want

your time in the sun

To dance in the light

that reflects from your fame

Do you really want it?

Do you want it enough?

To give up the good things

like relaxation and rest

and sleeping late in your bed

Are you sufficiently attracted?

to trade perceived fun for work

sitting in the office,

beavering away

while your friends watch movies,

eat out, drink and socialise

spending their day

having a jolly good time

Can you be disciplined and sit

at a computer for hours

tapping out words

while creating worlds,

actions and events,

that form themselves into books?

Will you watch the world passing

through the glass of your window

while you pursue the fantasy

you hope to achieve, but may not

Few things in this life

come without paying the price

and the tag that comes with fame

and its bedfellow fortune

is usually…

A fabulous review by D. Wallace Peach for Skating on Thin Ice! Thank you, Diana!

Myths of the Mirror

I’m deep into NaNoWriMo, writing furiously between ongoing parental health stuff. I had to abandon my first draft of a trilogy over a year ago, and can’t even remember some of the characters’ names!  Ugh and Lol. I’m not stopping to look them up. They’re just getting new names that I’ll have to reconcile later. What a mess. But so fun to be writing.

I’ve also been gobbling down books, and it’s about time to share three more reviews!  Here goes:

The Prince’s Man

by Deborah Jay

I thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining and skillfully-written fantasy novel. I was particularly taken with the tight narrative, not a wasted scene or conversation, every word counting as the story unfolded. This contributed to a quick pace and complimented the well-considered plot that comes together with a satisfying ending. Though the first in a series, The Prince’s Man can also be…
