When I posted how saddened I was at the death of Paul Walker, I did not mean to leave out how sad the death of Roger Rodas was as well.  He had a son and family and my sympathy goes out to them.  I apologize to them for not including Roger Rodas.  He may not have been known to me, but he was to many people and they will feel his loss just as much.

The loss of a loved one is never easy, especially when it is a sudden death.  My sisters and I have lost so many relatives and friends since 2005, we know the pain that a death brings.  No matter what people or doctors  say, you never totally get over the death of someone you love.  You just learn to cope.  As time goes by, the pain lessens, but it leaves a place in your heart that can’t be filled by anyone else.  They will always occupy that space and they never truly leave us.  As long as we remember them, they are with us.   And we have great memories, and yes, we still cry at times and probably always will.  Tears are good for the soul.  So let your tears flow.  It will help the healing process.

Please everyone stay safe.

I was so sorry to hear of the death of actor Paul Walker.  All our sympathy goes out to his young daughter and family.  Vehicle speed claims too many lives and that is a sad thing.  May he always be remembered as the kind, gentle, caring person that he was.

It was on 11/20/13 in my blog that sister and I had dreamed of him being cast as our main character Jarrett Blackwell in our novel A CIRCLE OF MURDERS, if it was ever made into a movie.  He was perfect for the part and now that gentle soul is dead.  It is hard to believe that we have all lost another talented caring person.

This is a short blog today.  We have high winds and an arctic arriving in the Springs tomorrow night with a low of 7 degrees.  Wednesday’s high is supposed to be 11 with a chance of snow.  I think winter is coming determined to blast us every now and then.  That’s okay.  As long as I can see sunshine, I’m happy.

Well, everyone have a great day and PLEASE, stay safe.  A vehicle is transportation, not a toy.  I will keep you all in my prayers.  Until we talk again.


To all the actors and actresses we have chosen to portray our characters, please do not be offended.  We mean our selection only as a compliment.

When we write about our characters in our novels, we have to create that person in our minds. To do so, we make a list and create a complete background for each one.  We know what they look like, what they do, their likes, dislikes, DOB, who their parents are or were, do they have a girlfriend or boyfriend?  We take that information and everything about that character and put it in a notebook to keep track of the storyline, what each character is doing and how they are affecting the story.  I know how tedious that job can be, but to know your characters, it has to be done.  Sometimes the information comes easy and sometimes, we have to dig for the information.  Once we have done all that, then we write the novel, and if we’re lucky, the characters take over and help write the story.  If you don’t know your characters, it will show in your writing.

Once the novel is finished, then we are allowed to DREAM BIG!  Maybe, just maybe  we might sell our beloved story’s movie rights to a production company.  Sound crazy?  You can’t be sane and be a writer.  I’ll be willing to bet that a large number of you do the same thing.  Sooooooooo, we have casted the characters for A CIRCLE OF MURDERS.


For our main character, SARRA GRAY, she had to be someone who would attract immediate attention.  We selected Mila Kunis.MV5BODQyNTQyNzY4MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODg5MDA3MQ@@._V1._SY209_CR17,0,140,209_[1] She would be a perfect Sarra.  She certainly would command a man’s attention.

JARRETT BLACKWELL was a coin toss between Paul Walker or Chris Hemsworth.  I liked Hemsworth and my sister like Walker. Actually, I liked them both, but she won the coin toss, so Paul Walker was cast as Jarrett.  MV5BMjIwODc0OTk2Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTQ5MDA0Mg@@._V1._SX140_CR0,0,140,209_[1]





Since CARUSO JONES is such a fun character, we had to find the perfect man for the job.  He had to be serious, but love to have fun and love to kid around, not to mention that Caruso has a velvet singing voice.  We don’t know if our choice can sing, but he looks the part.  We chose  Jeremy  Sisto.






The character of Big John Whitmore could only be portrayed by Keith David.  He is a fantastic actor and would make the perfect Big John.

Please take care of yourselves and stay safe.  The best to you all.
