CBBH Photo Challenge: Across The Rooftops

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love photo challenges. It’s great fun to spend time reliving memories as I linger in my albums finding the shots I want to use. Every month Marianne … oh wait! … first I want to congratulate her as she  recently won first prize in aContinue reading “CBBH Photo Challenge: Across The Rooftops”

Travel Theme: Sweet

July has been busy! As a true Leo, I’ve loved every minute of all the action, sharing the good news, releases, reviews of other authors and friends as well as my own France Book Tour. My special writing group, Her Books, pulled our resources together and published a FREE Book Club Picks sampler that featuresContinue reading “Travel Theme: Sweet”

Travel theme: Benches

Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack is one of my favourite blogs for photo challenges. Is there a bench somewhere that has called to you? A photo posted by Meg of MegTravels immediately reminded me of one I took on Lake Como a few years ago and I dove into my iPhoto albums. Do you find there are someContinue reading “Travel theme: Benches”


Or should I say coloUr? It just depends where you live, eh? The weekly photo challenge from The Daily Post had me flipping through my photo library and sinking into delicious shades of fuchsias, greens, yellows, blues, to mention a few of my favourite colourful shots. Something was nagging away at me the entire timeContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: COLOR”

Travel Theme: RED

The photo theme on Ailsa’s fabulous Where’s My Backpack travel blog is simply RED. My mind immediately turned to one of my visits in the south of Spain with my beautiful, crazy (in the best way), smart, adventurous sister-in-law … who went for a one-week holiday in Andalucia and is still there 23 years later …Continue reading “Travel Theme: RED”

Travel Photo Theme: Multiples

Who doesn’t love digital photography? I’ve been having a lot of fun with photo challenges lately, either by going out and taking new photos or scrolling through my ridiculously enormous fairly large photo library. It’s also a relaxing break from my obsessive addiction writing. This week several websites I visit regularly led me, from oneContinue reading “Travel Photo Theme: Multiples”


‘Tis the season to feel stressfully slightly overloaded! Humming joyful holiday songs only works for so long  … Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel or Jingle Bells … whatever helps.  Normally I love the busy bustle of the holiday season. However,  *cue doleful organ music*, I am lagging far behind with everything at the moment, and in myContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: REFLECTIONS”
