So many books -so little time.  Okay- so how many of you have a TBR list?  I was speaking to Kim last night and I told her I never had a TBR pile.  I was one of the lucky ones.  I had a long commute to work and managed to read 5 or 6 books a week.  Then I started my dream job and with it came my TBR pile.  You know – that stack of books that sits on our night stand, coffee table, or on our desk – they call to you like a lover in the night.  Choose one and there’s instant satisfaction, but the others may feel scorned.  You silently say, don’t worry, I’m getting to you too.

They say a rose by any other name, etc. but I have a feeling
nicknames have a way of describing a person. As a kid I had lots of friends
with nicknames, where they got them, I don’t know — but they had a tendency to
stick. For example, I had a good friend
when I was about seven, and everyone called her Tang. I think it was because she wanted to be an
astronaut and she’d heard that the astronauts drank Tang. For those of you who don’t remember, or are
too young, Tang was an orange crystallized drink you mixed with water, and presto
a delicious drink that would take you to outer space. Anyway, I don’t think I
ever knew her real name.

Recently, Marisa and I …

In aFlying_nun_1 world full of high tech, fast food, computer generated techno speak – sometimes the world is a blur of images and impressions.  Sometimes I ask myself; how did I get "HERE" so fast? During the whirlwind of information and technology, the ingenues in the movies I adored have become the mothers of the ingenues I now adore.   I mean when did the Flying Nun turn 60?  Wasn’t it only yesterday she was on the beach with Moon Doggie?  What Happened?   When did my cell phone turn into a television?  When did my car start talking to me to get me safely from one destination to another?  When did my siblings and I become responsible adults and parents?  Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was pondering what dress …

We’ve been pretty busy here at Romance Novel TV  – planning and plotting – and I just wanted to let you know what will be coming up in the next couple of months.

As you know I’m Maria’s twin sister – and we’ve been working together for over 20 years.  As in all good twin relationships there is always an alpah twin – in our relationship that would be Maria.  She’s the ‘up-front’ gal, I’m the beta, more the ‘behind-the-scenes’ gal.  When we meet new people, Maria is the one who does all the talking; she’s the one who is ‘our’ public face.  In private, with our families, I’m the one who does all the talking.  Public speaking makes me nervous.  Meeting new people makes me nervous.  Well, being on the road these past two months we’ve had to meet a lot of new people and do a lot of talking.  It’s been both exciting and terrifying all at the same time.  Add …

Sometimes an idea, like a bolt of lightning, will strike you at a moments notice.

Let me start at the beginning.  I have an identical twin sister, her name is Marisa and she’s in charge of programming for the channel, in fact we’ve been working together in television production for more years than I’m going to say.  Television production, while exciting, sometimes glamorous, most times interesting has one drawback – and that’s waiting. Whether you’re waiting for the lights to be set, or the talent to finish with wardrobe and make-up, or the cameraman to set up his shot, or the script to be changed – waiting is something you learn to live with.  In our daily lives waiting seems to be something we have to overcome, on the grocery …
