Spring, Easter, and Family

Hi friends,

I hope you are having a beautiful and safe spring. Living in the South spoils me. No more Easters with snow. Yay! South Carolina has also spoiled me with lovely warm weather. I don’t deal well with the cold anymore. So, I say welcome spring!

The only negative to living on the coast is we’re far from our family. So, I’m going to take a couple of weeks off to focus on family.

Then I’ll be back in the thick of things. Zoom meetings, Malice Domestic, and I’m honored to be the featured author on May 16 at the Moveable Feast. The luncheon will be held in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you there. If you have a specific question, just let me know.

Heather Weidner and Misty Simon will be at Malice Domestic along with me and two-hundred mystery authors. It’s a fan-focused event. And it’s FUN!

Until then, I hope you have a happy Easter and spring days!


Spring Storms

It’s spring and that means storms. Here are a few suggestions to survive a power outage.

  • Charge all of your electronics ahead of time – phone, laptops, and whatever you need so you will be able to reach people if you need help.
  • Know how to turn off your main circuit breaker in order to help protect your appliances and electrical devices from power surges.
  • Unplug appliances, electronics, and lighting – and turn up the temperature setting on the AC.
  • Purchase a backup generator because it can help keep your fridge and other important appliances running during a power outage. Don’t forget to ventilate.
  • Turn down the temperature on your freezer and fridge to get them as cold as possible to preserve your food. Also, fill your freezer and fridge with ice and water bottles to prolong the cold temperature.

Stay safe this spring!
