Miss Congeniality meets The Bodyguard - Guarding the Quarterback

Tuesday - April, 19, 2016 is release day for Guarding the Quarterback!

Order now!  Kindle

Here is the blurb along with some photo teasers!
Alexa Reeves
The quarterback of the NY Kings has a body to die for, and as Dean Walker's bodyguard I'm right in the line of fire. If that's not dangerous enough, I'm posing as his girlfriend to keep close. Yet, that isn't the worst part. He says I need a makeover to pass as his arm candy. Jerk. The more time I spend with him, the more my undercover role blurs with reality, and I'll lose more than my job if I step over the line and into his bed.
Dean Walker
Let's get something straight. I didn't ask for protection, especially in the form of a female. Isn't a death threat just another day in the life of a NY quarterback? Still, the owner of the team forces me to accept a security detail led by the tiny but tough Alexa Reeves.
But who is the real Alexa? The bodyguard, sworn to protect me, or the made-over vixen, determined to drive me crazy? As the stalker closes in, I realize I've put more than my life in her hands. Will Alexa safeguard my heart as fiercely as my body?

Patty Duke - Quotes by Famous Women Series

When Patty Duke died at the age of 69 on March 29, 2016. I realized she'd never been a part of my Quotes by Famous Women series! How can that be? 

Not only did she win an Oscar for her portrayal of Helen Keller, but as sufferer of Manic Depression she did not shy away from talking about it at a time when it was taboo - worse considered shameful. 

Here are some wonderful quotes from Patty Duke

I'm going to be 58, and I'm a woman. In this business, that seems to be a bigger crime than being mentally ill.

It's toughest to forgive ourselves. So it's probably best to start with other people. It's almost like peeling an onion. Layer by layer, forgiving others, you really do get to the point where you can forgive yourself.

No matter what your laundry list of requirements in choosing a mate, there has to be an element of good luck and good fortune and good timing.

When I'm 80 and sitting in a rocking chair listening to the Rolling Stones, there is absolutely no way I'm going to feel old or forget my younger days.

And the Oscar goes to... 2016 edition

It's my annual post where I ask: What gown should I wear to the Academy Awards! - you know if I was nominated.
I select four gowns and then you weigh in on your favorite. I look forward to doing this post all year. I  love watching all the red carpets!

So help a girl out. What should a wear?

Option 1 - This is not practical for me since my boobs would probably spill out and I'm not fond of the size of my arms.
 Option 2: This is probably more age appropriate...
 Option #3 - Tell hell with age and knock them dead in red!
 Option 4: Go to black gown.

Then He Kissed Me... Love Song Tuesday

Like my Quotes by Famous Women series, I also had a Love Song series - I think its time that it too made a comeback! The inspiration for that thought came when I was driving home and Then He Kissed Me played on the radio. I love this song and sang along in my car. It is so pure and captures the importance of the kiss!

Then He Kissed Me is an oldie and a goodie!
