Guest Post: Dianne Emley and "Love Kills"

Today we welcome guest author Dianne Emley, best-selling crime novelist. Her Nan Vining “thrillogy” is set in Pasadena and features a female Pasadena Police Detective. Dianne was the first author I interviewed for PDP and she’s been a friend of the blog ever since. I always wondered how she researched the books and today we […]

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion

I’ve always had a desire to travel back in time. I’ve even written a novel about it called Camelot & Vine which, fingers crossed, is about to embark on its journey to get published. (I’ll keep you up-to-date.) I’m not the only one with this desire. We want to go back and take a look–safely, […]

Zen Monday: #147

Here’s your Monday Zen, a chance to give us your thoughts on the photo without me telling you what I think it’s about. There’s no right or wrong, no secret, no prize. Just tell us what the picture makes you think or feel. Have fun and enjoy the other comments, as I do every Monday. […]

No Darwin Awards Yet

No Darwin Awards Yet

Close, but no cigar. I wonder where that saying came from. We had a good time here Friday making fun of predictions of the rapture. We weren’t the only ones. The internet is rife with photos of piles of clothes left empty. At parties last night, people celebrated not being raptured. A friend told me […]

Thank You, San Rafael School

Thank You, San Rafael School

A distinguished group invited me to speak to them yesterday morning. I was summoned to their headquarters at 9:15 a.m. They were the bright, charming 5-year-olds of Pasadena’s San Rafael School. These kids are part of a dual language immersion program, where English-speaking and Spanish-speaking kids go to school together. Most of their classes are taught […]

Oh Joy, Oh Rapture

Oh Joy, Oh Rapture

I don’t know about you but I’ve left my weekend calendar open, especially tomorrow–you know, for the rapture and all. I don’t fool myself that I’m going anywhere, but I’m excited to see who’s holy enough to get raptured. Who do you think? The pope? John Boehner? Beyonce? Anybody who thinks they’re holy probably isn’t, […]

Baby (pant pant) Steps

Baby (pant pant) Steps

Yesterday I did a strange thing. I got up at 6:30 in the morning and went running. I haven’t been running in…ever. I tried once in Chicago when I was in my twenties. I think I did about a mile and decided it wasn’t for me. A mile. I was so ungrateful. I don’t want […]

Pure Love

Pure Love

When you set up a cage at the Farmers’ Market and fill it with puppies, you will draw a crowd. The sign requested cash for photos. I tossed a dollar in the box and started shooting. Would a legitimate breeder sell dogs at the Farmers’ Market for $3,000 a pop? (or pup?) Apparently so. I […]

Not On Their Watch

Not On Their Watch

I’ve had my head in the proverbial sand for some time now. We unplugged our TV a while back and I’ve turned off my car radio so as not to hear about politics because I want to enjoy life. Today I drove John’s car. The radio was on when I turned the key in the […]
