I'm a Southern gal who loves life, my husband and our family (which, to date, includes 13 grandchildren). I enjoy being with friends and family. But I also like being alone and thinking up plots for future books. I've published two novels, both mysteries, and I'm working on my third. For more about my books, visit me at If you ever hear me say, "I'm bored," please get me to the ER immediately! Paddling my kayak and snapping pictures of the critters I see relaxes me. Beach music has the opposite effect--when I hear those old "doo-wops" I want to dance.

Rainy Days and Mondays

For the last ten years I've loved rainy days. And Mondays. So because today is what most folks call a foul-weather day, I decided to put rain pictures in this blog post. And yes, I know it isn't Monday, but heck, I can't have everything.

The dreary picture below was taken from inside our car as we drove across Bogue Sound in North Carolina. I like the depth in the individual raindrops on the car window.

In the picture below, you can almost see automobile headlights through the rear view mirror.

The windshield wipers had cleaned the windshield a second before I snapped this picture as we drove across Bogue Sound to Atlantic Beach, North Carolina.

I took this picture of the deck this morning through the sliding glass door. The white spot is from the camera's flash.

I like the way the rain drops cling to the porch screens. Earlier I sat in one of the rockers and listened to the rain.

What could be more fitting than a picture of a rainbow taken through a rain-drenched window?
