Beauty beyond...

💕 Not necessarily physically beautiful, but more importantly spiritually beautiful.

News & Updates..

E.E. Cummings...

"Somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully, mysteriously) her first rose.''

Readers have their say..

"Where do I really begin? This book is so heartwarming and comforting. It's not often that a short story can take you through the lives of a married couple so completely. This book defines Jasmine and Wen not only as individuals, but as a couple as well as parents. I think that any couple that has been married for a while should read this book.... it can really bring the "spark" back into any romance. 

Whoever said once a person has children the romance is over needs to read this book! No wonder it's a best seller, it is so well written and it crosses all color lines. If you haven't had an opportunity to read My Heart In Seoul I suggest you read that one first and then you will see how connected these two characters are and how their love began. As an avid reader who is always reading romance novels I highly recommend this book."

Weekend reading...

This book is so good..It's a mystery and a love story.  Koontz's writing is lyrical at times. Here's one of my favorite lines from the book: "She moved like sunlight over the water."

Thanks to my wonderful hubby...For this lovely anniversary bouquet.

"You have been mine since time untold
Our love is immortal, don't you know?
Others will come and they will go
But I love you young and I love you old."

Loving Wen..

"I loved Wen. He's a great (sexy) character with integrity. He's the type of guy that you can take home to meet mom but who turns around and sweeps you off your feet five seconds later."

Musical inspiration.


"When the rain
Is blowing in your face
And the whole world
Is on your case
I could offer you
A warm embrace
To make you feel my love
When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
And there is no one there
To dry your tears
I could hold you
For a million years
To make you feel my love."

Meet Private Investigator Camille Sheridan...

  I was hired right out of law school by the Schaller and Lane law firm. I lost out on a promotion that would have made me not only the first female partner in the firm, but the first woman of color. In the end, the position went to someone they thought would better represent the firm; the blonde and blue eyed, Matthew Collins. He was everything they wanted and apparently I was not. After careful consideration, I decided to “get out of Dodge.” 

I gave the firm my two week notice, packed up my belongings in my little brown box, said my goodbyes and never looked back. That’s when I decided to go into the private investigation business. I could pick and choose the cases I wanted to take on and set my own hours. Before passing the bar exam, I worked as an investigator for a high-priced defense lawyer. I took the money from my severance package, some of my savings and started up Sheridan Investigative Services. 

One of my favorite snippets from a review.

Expect the unexpected..

Detective Song Kai, the hero of the story, is compassionate, morally centered, sexy….And broken. Tragedy and loss took him out of the game and deep into his work. It also brought him to Brooklyn. It was an instant attraction for obvious reasons. What unified them was painful and heartbreaking; thus begins the story that you never expected.

Meet Private Investigator Layla Li...

Tuesday Teaser

Layla Li and I met when I worked for a high priced defense lawyer. She was also on their investigating team. People often underestimated her skills; I expect because she’s a woman and rather diminutive in stature. Soaking wet, she probably weighs about 100 pounds. She wears her long jet black hair on top of her head; she thinks it makes her look taller. She is not only a hell of an investigator, but she can also kick the ass of people twice her size. I once saw her take down a guy that was 5’ 11” and 180 pounds with all but a few moves. Her skills with a computer are equally as proficient.

She talked me into taking some martial arts classes and was so proud of me when I earned my black belt. The bumper sticker on her fire engine red Porsche reads: “It's not the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog.”

The view from here..

Okay, so the snow is up to the doorknob of my deck. Everything is closed... stores,schools and we're not even going to have mail service. We've had some pretty bad storms, but for the first time even the postman has the day off. Safety should come before anything, we've been warned not to travel unless it's absolutely necessary.  I hope everyone stays safe and warm.


We have a huge storm coming our way. I hope everyone stays warm and safe.

Author Vivienne Diane Neal's review of "The Last Firefly"

'A Beautiful Coming of Age Thriller"

"What an extraordinary read. After waiting so long for this book to come out, the wait was well worth it. Protagonist Camille Sheridan, a straightforward, compassionate, and nurturing PI is asked to investigate an attack on a woman, supposedly, committed by her childhood friend, Luke Samuels. 
What starts out as a problematic case, develops into a cat and mouse game overflowing with some loveable, eccentric, sleazy, and egotistical characters, and murder, and when her associate, investigator Layla Li comes into the picture, a well-executed plot will expose some shocking revelations, secrets and lies, twists and turns, police misconduct, building up to an ending you will never see coming. What makes this story so great is seeing two intelligent women who can hold their own in any dangerous situation. The author also touches on some major societal issues, namely, domestic violence, gay bashing, and misogyny."
