Don’t tell my husband…

by Lynn on October 1, 2014

I’m gonna talk about my husband.
Because today is our wedding anniversary.

IMG_2649
My husband is six foot, five inches tall. No kidding.
He’s actually shorter than the guy I dated in college.

My husband has great legs.
Great legs can get a marriage through the tough times, I believe.

My husband’s favorite food is ice cream.
I don’t eat ice cream any more, so he gets dessert all to himself.
Plentiful ice cream helps a marriage through the rough spots, don’t you agree?

Dreamy gazes can get a marriage through any rough spot.
I bat my eyelashes at my hubby every night,
‘cuz it distracts him from dinner.

Believe me, ignoring the dinner menu
definitely saved our marriage.

Hugs,
“L Kel”

Meet my characters

by Lynn on September 25, 2014

In one month, Clear as Glass releases! This story won five Romance Writers of America chapter contests, and I’m so excited to share it with you. Published in both paperback and ebook by The Wild Rose Press. Available October 22nd.

CAG pp slide
Marooned with a flat tire in the middle of nowhere, Jaye Davis isn’t sure how to read the brawny guy who offers to help. When he gets too close, she hits him in the nuts. Turns out, he’s not a murderous sex maniac – he’s her new boss. Now he has good reason to fire her, but she’s determined to save his faltering glassblowing factory. If she can help him, she might feel worthy of becoming her overbearing father’s right hand man. Better yet, if she can hide  in this small town for the next four weeks, she might discover who she really is.

The last thing Mitchell Blake needs is another hot-shot consultant who doesn’t understand glassblowing, but this one is different. She has secrets, and plenty of them. If he can uncover who she really is, he might have good reason to fire her. His plan falls apart when she ends up unearthing his true self, and he doesn’t like what he sees. This doe-eyed woman is the only one who can shatter his safe, lonely life…and he can keep her for only one month.

The story takes place in northern Pennsylvania, in a remote town nestled between the Allegheny National Forest and the Appalachian Mountains.

Learning stuff makes me paranoid

by Lynn on September 24, 2014

My brain was getting “dusty,”
so I went to the museum for a dose of culture.

photo 4 copy 2

Look at the ducks!
Er, I mean, what an exquisite display of texture and brushwork.
On to the next picture…

photo 1 copy 3
Oh, I wish I had her scarf.
Er, I mean, observe the thoughtful, wistful expression expressed by the artist.
On to the next picture…

photo 3 copy 4

Ohmygersh, that girl in the picture keeps staring at me!

I ran home.

I grabbed a cookie.

I felt pretty good until…

Ohmygersh, that dog WON’T STOP STARING AT ME!!

IMG_2283

Artwork…and cookies…are forever ruined for me.
From now on, I’m letting my brain stay dusty.

The Man Wall

by Lynn on September 17, 2014

Like most good things, it started as a joke:

IMG_2166

I taped a few pictures of handsome men in the corner of my sophomore dorm room.
My buddies added pictures of handsome men to the collection.
These handsome men became known as…
THE MAN WALL.

The Man Wall took on a life of its own.
Friends submitted pictures of their favorite men for The Man Wall.
My roommate and I spent hours searching for new material to expand The Man Wall.
My parents secretly worried I spent too much time reading magazines.

And that, my friends, is my crowning achievement in college.
Perhaps The Man Wall helped prepare me to become a romance author.

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter “U”

The secret to sexual ecstasy

by Lynn on September 10, 2014

Like most folks, I’d like to learn the secret to sexual ecstasy.
In particular, my sexual ecstasy.

Like any good author, I searched for the answer in a bookstore.
At first, the answer eluded me.

IMG_2553 2

Dang, I must be in the wrong aisle.

IMG_2557

Wait a minute.
Getting warmer…

IMG_2558
I turned a corner and stumbled into a wealth of knowledge!

IMG_2559

At last, the answer hit me right between the eyeballs…
but my husband wouldn’t let me buy the book unless I agreed to one condition.

IMG_2560

And that, my friends, is why this book is sitting on my coffee table right now.
I’ll let you know when we actually read the darn thing.

Now I know where all those frogs came from

September 3, 2014

My back yard is crowded with frogs. I was wondering how they got there…until I saw this: If only I could figure out how all the mosquitos end up in my yard…

I gave my kid away

August 27, 2014

Well, I did it. I gave my kid away. To college. To reacquaint myself with being a freshman, I dug up a picture of my first dorm room: I’d never met my roommate until we moved in together. She liked kitty cats. I liked Mike Schmidt. We got along quite well, actually. I’m a bit worried […]

Don’t make Snow White mad.

August 20, 2014

I’m not disturbed by the Hereford moose, cow, or bison on the roof. However, I’m shocked Snow White tied two of her dwarves to the chimney. What did they do to anger her?

Guilt-free dinner

August 13, 2014

I didn’t feel too guilty about eating the lobster when I realized he was already crawling into the butter. What are you eating for dinner tonight?

She was normal when we bought her.

July 30, 2014

Our dog spends 80% of her day in her “corner.” She’s got a great view of the yard, the driveway, and the road. Her job is to bark wildly should she spot a squirrel or the UPS truck. PROBLEM: She has absolutely no idea what to do if another dog stops by. Most dogs love […]
