I am on a working vacation. When you’re a writer, it’s not a contradiction in terms, because your job comes with you in your head wherever you go. So if you go someplace awesome, you’re still working. But trust me, it doesn’t suck.

First stop–Paris. I finished FAMILY TREE (coming in 2016) and started research on my next book. Here’s the Jardin de Luxembourg and it doesn’t look much like Paris but when I see beehives, I have to take a photo because, well, beehives.

I love discovering strange shops that sell things like mushroom hunting knives. Here’s one on Boul’ St. Germain called Le Prince Jardiniere:

My amazing husband Jerry takes the best people-watching shots. Check out this French kid taking a selfie in Place des Vosges, aka the prettiest square in Paris:

2 things I love:
1. writers’ conferences
2. Australia
Registration is open for the RWAustralia’s 20th annual conference, August 11-14. The conference page gives you the whole scoop: http://www.romanceaustralia.com/conference_melbourne.html
You can check out their Twitter feed here: http://twitter.com/#!/RWAusConf2011

Getting to Australia is easier than you think. It’s like flying to Hawaii but just a few bar drinks and a couple of in-flight movies longer. There are easy nonstops from LA on Virgin Australia (which makes you feel like a rock star) and Qantas. C’mon down under! What conferences are YOU attending this summer?

what’s on my mind right now:

Join me on Facebook. You won’t be sorry.

I tend to spontaneously give stuff away to readers and libraries. Join the fun here. Really.
