What Looks LIke Crazy is available now!

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

I never thought this day would come. What Looks Like Crazy, the first book in my new Crazy Series was released today!

 Here’s some information on it!

WHAT LOOKS LIKE CRAZY (Jove Mass Market; March 2008; $7.99) is the hilarious novel that will launch a thousand therapy sessions—and a madcap new series, perfect for everyone who is just hanging on by a thread.

Kate Holly is a psychologist, but lately she’s the one that could use some help. She’s divorcing her gorgeous firefighter husband, has an eccentric secretary who runs her life, is dealing with her neighbors’ anger over the vaguely sexual sculpture her mother erected in her front yard, and her psychiatrist ex-boyfriend won’t stop calling to find out what she’s wearing. The only one who can help Kate is the one man who always makes her lose her mind — and her heart.

Geniuses

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

I just love reading articles written by geniuses.
 
Get this:  In a study by the Faculty of the Harvard Medical School, they have discovered that caffeine can contribute to anxiety.
 
Duh.
 
I could have told you that.  I’m hooked up to a Starbucks IV, and my anxiety level is off the charts. 
 
Although Harvard hasn’t provided me with scientific proof, let me just say that drinking gallons of coffee can also make you pee a lot.  I thought I’d give you the heads up on that one in case the geniuses at Harvard take a couple of years to finalize that study.
 
Remember, you heard it here first.

People Who Piss Me Off

Monday, February 11th, 2008

There are a lot of jerks in this world, and I’m pretty sure I’ve met most of them.  I think I even married one or two.  I did not use good judgment at the time, and I’ve since raised my standards.  For example, I learned to stop accepting dates from men just because their photos weren’t on the Wanted list at the post office. 

It’s easier to stay pissed off at ex-husbands and other people who’ve hurt you, but a couple of years ago, I read a quote in Reader’s Digest that changed my mind.  I can’t recall the person’s name who actually quoted it, and I hope I don’t misquote the author and get sued – but it the gist of it was:  “Being angry with someone is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”

Besides, they hate it when you stop being mad at them because indifference is a bitter pill to swallow.  Sometimes, I am amazed at what I come up with.

Negative Thoughts

Monday, February 4th, 2008

I don’t know about you, but I have days when I think my life is crap.  Once I get started thinking about all the bad stuff in my life, that’s what I concentrate on.  So I have to reach for my trusty book titled, “You Can’t Afford the Luxury of a Negative Thought,” by John-Roger and Peter McWilliams.  Somehow, this book helps me realize that my life is not really crap; it just feels that way because I’m looking for all that’s wrong instead of concentrating on what’s right.  Like having a dishwasher.  Some of you might be too young to remember what it was like washing and drying dishes by hand.  And what about the old-time washers where you put clothes through a wringer?  When I was a little girl, I accidentally caught my entire arm in a wringer.   I’m surprised I could even have children after that experience!   Once you go through something like that, even the worst days look good.
