For those of you who don’t know, champagne is my favorite drink. And this seems brilliant! I’ve never tried making champagne ice cubes, but I will have to very soon
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and what screams Love like a wonderful, romantic meal? I hope you all get a chance to sit down with the one you love this Valentine’s Day. Spoil yourself. Splurge a little. Do something out of the box.
I’m on my way to Los Angeles. It’s where I lived as a newlywed. There are so many friends I’m excited to see & lots of food to eat too Here’s a couple places on my list : El Chavo’s (best margaritas on the planet & awesome posters of Dolly Parton too!) & the Tiki Ti (yes, I’d like one electric lemonade please). If you’re in LA these are a MUST! I’m going to be writing with a bunch of friends this week. Hoping to make lots of progress on Moon Killers, book 3 in the Shadow Series. An excerpt from Moon Killers is going to be featured at Indie Author Month this Monday with a cover reveal later this month! Click here to get all the details! On a side note, I’m very excited to be a best-selling author this week. Winnemucca, a small-town fairy tale hit #1 in three different Amazon categories this week. #squeeeeee. Time to pop the champagne
Got any Valentine’s Day/romantic dinner recipes? I’d love to know what they are?
The setting for the transfer! The Griffith Observatory lies in Griffith Park in the heart of Los Angeles. Griffith Park is the one of the most filmed locations in LA. In 2010 there was filming 340 days of the year. We’ve had birthday parties there and love the merry-go-round too. I thought it might be fun today to show a few clips and share some links of the movies shot here.

Central to the story of TRANSFER STUDENT is Rhoe’s invention of the teleporting telescope. Here is a picture of the Zeiss Telescope at The Griffith Observatory.
In 2006, while working at The Los Angeles Times, I was helping to work on a multi-media feature covering the re-opening of The Griffith Observatory after it had been closed for a five-year renovation. This would be one of the inspirations for Transfer Student! Here is what is happening over the skies of Southern California as I type.
