More garden pics: VDB used to have quite a garden, then it was "accidentally" plowed under by the lawn guys. Now just a few things have been replanted. This is delphinium.

Sorry no pic yesterday. We were in Charlotte at the 10th Annual For Sisters' Only Convention, didn't get back til after midnight and didn't think to post the pic late on Friday night.

Here's another fashion flashback. Virginia in Essence Magazine--can't really describe the outfit--except to say it was the '80's people!

Candid Camera Photo of the Day #7

We are at the Southern Kentucky Book Fest in Bowling Green, with Dana Canedy, New York Times editor and author of A Journal For Jordan, and the famous Jordan himself.


--- Inspired by a journal her fiancé wrote to their infant son while stationed as a sergeant in Iraq, New York Times editor Canedy tenderly recreates the couple's love story and decision to have a baby before he died....Canedy's account of Charles's last visit with his wife and child is heartbreaking. Unflinching and thorough, Canedy offers a sense of shared grief with other families whose loved ones have died in the war." Publishers Weekly

The Ruby Slippers--actually a card from our buddy Sybil (TJMS) but we like to keep them handy. In case we need a quick getaway just click your heels three times and . . . Oh! This is home?! (At least until this book is finished.) Now where can we go?

Candid Camera

We have been slackers. No blog postings for a while–and just in case you’re wondering why–we’re back in the writing cave. Our new book, Uptown, is due to our editor on June 1, so our noses are to the grindstone and our twenty fingers to the keyboard.

Last year while we were finishing What Doesn’t Kill You, we serialized Exposures, our first novel, on the blog. It was fun and you seemed to enjoy that, but we don't have any more secret novels hanging out in the desk drawer. We’ve been racking our brains trying to figure out what we could do this time around to let you know we still care, we’re still thinking about you and of course want you to keep coming by and seeing what we have going on.

Soooo we’ve come up with the “Photo of the Day.” They’ll be random pictures from our lives, present and past, our work environment, stuff we see, people we meet–a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Enjoy and be sure to let us know what you think! First pic below... a new one tomorrow!




This is a collage we made when we were writing Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made to remind ourselves to always include the 5 senses. Now it's framed and hangs in our office because sometimes we still need reminding!
