Water Cooler Wednesday

Once again it's Water Cooler Wednesday. Every time it's my turn I wonder what in the world would should I share. I'm a RN case manager, I have 4 teenagers and one child that is about to be the drinking age in the USA, but what is new? Recently I wrote a book with an author friend of mine named Draven St. James. She writes contemporary MM and it's one of my favorite genres of...

reading romance, romance author, Dani Wade
It’s raining here today, but not men, more's the pity. It's not a huge, rushing downpour, but a slow steady rain that causes constant pings against the windowpane.

lmm2
Hey, gang! Angel Payne here, taking a turn to hog the space at the NGWN watercooler with my new favorite subject: the inimitable sexier-than-hell Lin-Manuel. See how I did that? Yeah, that's called white girl hip-hop for you--and is also my little way of an ode to the newest Broadway crush for many of us: Lin-Manuel Miranda. For anyone who's been out of the loop ...

#WatercoolerWednesday: Stuffin Muffins

So I love to try new recipes - sometimes they are hit, sometimes they are miss. Well this time, it was a hit.  My kids (excluding the picky eater) all loved this very easy, but filling dish.  And with Thanksgiving coming all too soon, I was on the lookout for something more than just the old standard 'turkey and noodles' remedy for the leftovers.  That's when one of the ladies ...
