I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

Optimist...or Pessimist?

Do you see the glass half full or half empty? Yesterday I received two surprises in the mail. A stimulus check from the government that I wasn't expecting, and a royalty check. I never know when I'm going to get one of those. Not a bad day for me, huh? Went to bed feeling pretty good.

Today I got another surprise in the mail. A bill for the taxes due on my house. Ever noticed how things seem to balance out somehow? I immediately started to bitch to myself. Things like, I should have known, and, it figures. Why me? There goes the Coach purse I was going to splurge on.

But then I gave myself hell. The tax bill I knew was coming, and it is nice to paying for it with money I hadn't been expecting. A nice feeling came over me.

I'm still ahead:)

I am usually an optimist. I love getting surprises in the mail like you did with the checks; but I try not to take disappointing news too seriously. Hubby says that the thing he loves most about me is that I can always make him laugh. I do think trying to remain upbeat is important.

Debbie...I tend to be a glass half-full person but my sense of humor about the absurdity of life sustains me....Nancy:)

Hi! I try to be a glass half full person. An optimistic attitude seems to help keep life on an even keel.

You're so right Gladys. It takes too much energy to be negative and life is too short. I don't like hanging around negative people either.

Same here, Nancy. We have to laugh about life and what it throws our way. It's all in how you handle it:)
