Capital City Author Event 2022

The Capital City Author Event 2022 was a huge success!

My PA's and I had so much fun!! Thank you Stephanie and Stacie for all your help.

Many thanks to the geniuses who put this awesome event together, Tammie Smith and Randy and Michelle Sewell. You really outdid yourselves.

Here's the view from room 733. Beautiful.

Saturday morning we explored the area a bit visiting the baseball stadium, home of the Montgomery Biscuits and although the hours of operation for the Hank Williams Museum clashed with the event hours, we were able to get a picture of the statue on Commerce and Tallapoosa Street.

Making new friends always makes me happy. Norah Warnoch was my table basket winner. Enjoy!

And apparently, Ivy was pleased with the goodies I brought home from the event or maybe she just wanted the bag.

Five Star Reviews For Heiress to the Flame!

I'll take a five star review any day of the week! Check out some of my reader thoughts below and visit Heiress to the Flame's page on Amazon for more!


5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read 5.0 out of 5 stars

. . . This was a great and amazing story to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was surprised by how much I liked it 5.0 out of 5 stars
. . . If you are looking for a story with plenty of unpredictable action and dangers, this story has it. I never knew what was going to happen next. If you are looking for a story with a tender friendship leading to romance, this story also has it. The story comes to a stunning end but some long awaited happiness too.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  . . .

Many thanks to the readers for their kind words!

Heiress to the Flame


Roxie Sanders has dodged a few dangerous situations dating back to her teen years. After being rescued from certain death, she becomes a private investigator as a way of helping others and paying her blessings forward.

Nelson Crawford, part of the PI team who helps her escape a harmful situation, serves as her role model. The two form an immediate bond partnering on many cases and along the way, a flicker of attraction ignites between them, refusing to be snuffed out no matter how hard Roxie tries.

Shadows from Roxie’s past pop up to haunt her and when a case involving a kidnapped child takes them to the place where all her troubles began, her hometown of Osyka, Mississippi, she finds that trouble waiting for her. When Nelson is kidnapped, Roxie can no longer deny her feelings for the man and will stop at nothing to gain his freedom, even awakening the power of the flame sleeping within her.

Will her efforts pay off or will her dreams go up in smoke?

Spring Fever

 I have been hit hard by the Spring Fever bug over the last month or so.  My front porch is my favorite spot and I could sit and look at my plants or baby them all day and that's just about how I spent my day.

Here are a few pics from my prized collection. Yes, succulents are my new obsession. 

I used a red bowl as a planter here that made the red in the leaves pop.
My Lithops garden.

Fairies! Imagine that!

Icebox Fruitcake

Fruitcake. Yay or nay?

Now, before you go turning up your nose at the thought of fruitcake, take a look at a very old recipe. It's my grandmother's no-bake fruitcake. It's a Christmas favorite around my house and it's delicious.


  • One box (approx. 12 oz.) of vanilla wafers
  • One pound of candied cherries (red and/or green)
  • One can (approx. 14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
  • One cup raisins
  • One cup coconut
  • One cup pecans
  1. Finely crush vanilla wafers. A food processor works great!
  2. In a large bowl, add the vanilla wafers, sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Hand mix until wafers are moistened.
  4. Add remaining ingredients.
  5. Mix well by hand.
  6. Press mixture into a buttered tube pan.
  7. Cover
  8. Refrigerate overnight, until firm.
Keep it refrigerated, as it will spoil. This isn't your traditional fruitcake. It's so, so much better!

The Weather and other Changes

As the seasons change, so do our tastes and cravings for our favorite foods. Tonight we are waiting for hurricane Zeta to make land fall in Louisiana and head North through our area. 

We're told to expect rain . . . a lot of rain along high winds but after the hurricane remnants move out, the temps are supposed to drop and I am already searching for soup recipes.

I'm thinking chicken.

What's your favorite soup?
