It’s been a busy year. By my calculations, this has been my 4th release for 2017, and I plan to bring you two more new romantic suspense books in October. Keep an eye out for upcoming releases by clicking on the books/booklist button above.

IMG_0544It’s In the Bag

What better way to get to know each other than to dump out the contents of our handbag. (If you’re a man reading this blog–think of your wallet and your pockets and the front seat of your vehicle.)

I carry a small purse because I have a shoulder issue. Big bags cause my arm to hurt. So I’ve learned to pair down what I need. I’m going to dump it out in front of me right now and let you know what’s in there.

  • Wallet
  • ACT mints
  • Small fingernail file
  • Lip gloss
  • Lip stick
  • Gum
  • Pill box
  • 2 pens
  • Large fingernail file
  • More lip gloss (why do I have 2 in this little purse?)
  • Pen
  • Ticket stub
  • Hair clip
  • Keys

That’s it. Sometimes I try to fit my Kindle Paperwhite in there, but mostly I carry that around in my hand. And if I take my sunglasses, I have to leave that case on the front seat, or carry a larger bag!

Now how about you? What’s in your bag? I draw one winner from each post’s comment section. If your name is drawn, I’ll send you a paperback book of my choice from my supply closet. If it’s one you already have, you can donate the unsigned copy to your local library or a friend. Our last winner was Patricia B.
