Happy Halloween.

Now that's what I call a Jack-o-lantern. :) Hmmm. Yum.

I love Halloween. I don't know if its the fall colors, or the pumpkins, or what. I just love October. Always have. It's one of my favorite times of the year.

This time last year I was recovering from my mastectomy and my mother was staying with me, helping me to recover. I remember feeling rather crappy but wanting to see the Ghost Hunter's special on the Sci-Fi channel. I didn't make it through the 6 hour special. My mom kept telling me, "This is the most boring show I've ever seen. Nothing ever happens in it."

Of course I denied it. I happen to love the show but most of the time I do not watch it because I'm too busy. When I do, it spooks me. The kind of scared that leaves your imagination on hyper-drive. (was that a moving shadow I saw out of the corner of my eye?) That sort of thing. I love that feeling on Halloween night. It's so spooky. Unfortunately, we live in a rural area and have no trick-or-treaters. Also, are children are all grown and out of the house so we rely on some scary shows to entertain us on Halloween.

What's some of your favorite movies and tv shows to watch on all Hallow's Eve?

Leave a post and let me know. :)

Saje is coming soon from Wild Rose Press.


What could be worse than waking up lonely on May Day? Finding a naked male stranger with wings, standing in your home. That is exactly what Amanda discovers in her dining room when she stumbles from her bed to make her morning coffee. After she rouses from a faint, Amanda learns that her intruder is Saje, a trinket-hoarding, seed-spreading, bastard of a Woodland fairy, hell-bent on bringing her two May Day Baskets. Instead of fleeing for her life, Amanda feels drawn to Saje's scrumptous well-toned body and carefree spirit. They wind up involved in a sexcapade atop her dining room table, and then he will not leave.

Welcome to my little slice of the world. My name is Debbie and I love to write. But first, I am a recent breast cancer survivor. Cancer has changed me in ways that I could never have imagined. I am a stronger person and I take notice of the little blessings in life. Things I'd taken little note of before. Like the beauty of the sky. A butterfly. Not that I didn't notice them before, its just that I see the beauty in their creation. and I thank God for every new day he gives me. You can't help but alter your existance after you've had a surgeon inform you that if you do not have your breast removed and undergo chemo, you would only survive another year or two.
That happened to me and it now seems surreal in a weird kind of way. Do you know what was the first thing that popped into my mind after he told me that? I recall thinking, I can't die yet. I've got too many stories in my head that I haven't put down on paper yet. Yes, that was my first thought.
One of the benefits of my diagnosis is that it brought me closer to my family. You suddenly realize what's important in life. And cancer is a big aspect of my existance. One of my sisters is also suffering with this disease. Breast cancer affects the entire family. Right before I joined blogspot, I was sitting at my kitchen table tonight, filling out forms to have the cancer gene test. I'm doing this for my family's knowledge to help with their treatment to lessen their risk. Then tomorrow I go for a bone scan to make sure some minor pain I'm having is not metastized cancer. So, the fight doesn't end, but you have to keep that positive attitude. I must stay strong. I've got too many fairies and other character's wanting to be released from my mind. :)
Now on to the business of writing:
I've recently made my first sale to Wild Rose Press. Saje will be coming soon to their Scarlet Line. I'm so pumped and excited about this. I'll post updates often. :)
Take care and I'll talk to you soon.
