Hello Friends - I am one of 50 authors in this book. Each 100-word, Flash Fiction short story was based the above cover photo prompt.  What a fun concept! Kudos to Madison Woods for coming up with the clever idea and doing all the work.

It's available on (Kindle version) for .99. Plus a paperback is available.

My story is titled: THE SECRET PLAN

Hi all - Today is Nov. birthday. Supposed to spend the day at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA., but the frigid temps made us change our plans. Went to dinner at Red Lobster instead. OMG...what a fabulous dinner shared with two lovely friends. 

Update: I have another Flash Fiction short story published in a book titled: "Flash Fiction - One Photo - 50 Perspectives - (50 authors) - 100-Words" which will be out soon.

Hello friends - This is titled "Lora's back..." because my laptop crashed and sat with Best Buy's Geek Squad for a time. They weren't sure they could bring it back to life.. so I purchased a 23" HP All-in-One (w/Windows 8), which I'm currently using to enter this post.  The monitor is 23" .. like typing on a TV screen...(perfect for my failing eyes). Well. those great Geeks worked their magic and Voila! They revived my laptop ( w/Windows 7) now I have 2 computers. 

 The latest news...I celebrate another birthday next week, Nov. 13th...yes, I'm still proud to be a Scorpio...whatever that means. My friend and I plan to spend the day at a Casino. Wish me luck on those slots.

Other news?  Getting some nice sales on Amazon for my first Ebook MISTY BLUE (available on any Ereader - priced at .99). I'm halfway through  Ebook II (more 100-Word Flash Fiction Short Stories). Don't have a title or cover yet. TBA. Ebook III will either be 100-Word Fl. Fiction Sh. Stories for YA (young adults) OR a short book written journal style based on postcards, notes, letters, etc., I received for a short time and saved during my performing career.

                                                         LILIES IN THE WINDOW

The photo above was taken at dusk, seven months after my mom and brother passed. My first Easter without them was a sad and lonely time. 

The beautiful Lily sat on my 46th floor windowsill in my NYC hi-rise in Clinton (often called Hell's Kitchen). The view faces north toward Lincoln Center. To the left (behind the SET sign) is the mighty Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge. The long street is 10 Avenue which is lit by red and green stoplights. During rush hour, cars and trucks add their red back lights. A magical sight, I call 10th Avenue my perpetual Christmas Tree. 

Note: FYI...The SET icon which means "shooting film or video" was an error. It was my first digital camera and had no idea what I was doing. No idea how to remove it.  I should have purchased a "Digital Camera for Dummies" manual, along with the camera.  LOL.
