Sharp Shinned Hawk Waiting for Breakfast–Family of Teddy Bears, and a New Teddy Bear!

Sharp Shinned Hawk

Sharp Shinned Hawk

Yep. He’s waiting for the birds to come down and eat the birdseed on the tray. Lazy hawk. Not that I’m going to put any birdseed on the tray. For now. The birds will have to make due with bugs.

Another bear finished for the lovely Momma, Papa, and Baby Bear set.

And this is a mauve kind of bear with a little bit of black. Thought she was really cute.

And I’m back to proofing Call of the Cougar. Turned in Jaguar Pride and two promo blogs I had to do. One is a teen wolf Halloween flash fiction. I thought of using one of my wolf packs, but I couldn’t come up with a story I liked in short order.

So, I’m back to work. Have tons of bears to work on too.

And another conference to go to. I am NOT doing this next year again. And yet, I’ve already booked 4 things for Feb and April, asked to come to something in Oct and Dec, and June. More on that later. *sigh*

Off to work on Call of the Cougar! 🙂  Have a super, wonderful Wednesday!

A Way to Reach the Fae World & Impressionist Paintings–Photography Style

green fae world

Okay, so some might look at this and say eegads, that’s something I would have deleted from my camera. But wait! This is a really important picture.

You see, it was a totally cool tunnel of trees. We even saw a deer eating alongside the road. I tried to get a shot of it, but too late.  This was in Scotland on the way to our bed and breakfast. Loved it.

But what happened was we were almost sucked into the fae world. It’s true. One minute, we were in the human world, the next, we would have been hurdling into either the seelie or unseelie planes of existence.

So you see, this is not what you might think it is.

It’s beautiful. It transcends our day-to-day world.



Creek behind the bed and breakfast (640x480) (2)So here is a creek behind our bed and breakfast. It was beautiful. Reminded me of a hobbit home.

creek and old rock wall (640x480)

And the lovely rustic wall.

And this is like an impressionist painting, photography style.

When I saw this, my first impression was it was really interesting, the fall colors, the birches bordering the creek, the way we get a glimpse beyond the foreground trees as to what’s beyond. I loved Scotland. It was awe-inspiring.

So see? Sometimes really clear shots are just boring. When something that’s not quite clear can be quite intriguing, don’t you think?

Okay, so I’ve been really busy setting up the Facebook party!

I’m working on a navy bear for an order, and just got a blue bear order, not sure on that one. Still looking for fur.

And so, it’s time to get to work!!!

bunny, dove, sparrow (562x640)

If it hadn’t been for the hose in the picture, but hey, it tells a story too–hot, hot, hot, and I’m out having to water before we’re on water restrictions, but bunny, sparrow and dove all together at the feeding “trough.” Isn’t that cute?

Okay, really off to write!

Have a great Tuesday!


Back to writing!

New Review for Highland Rake!

Highland Rake, Book 3
Dougald MacNeill takes Lady Alana Cameron to his laird brother James’s Craigly Castle when he finds her roaming the heather on the MacNeill lands. But who has sent her there and why? Her uncle, laird of the Cameron clan, and warring with the MacNeill for years, has made a marriage arrangement with another clan and now that is even at stake.
Having witnessed her father’s death, and even believing he had returned her home when all along he had been dead, Alana discovers she has the gift, or curse, of seeing the newly departed and sometimes those who should have long ago passed over. Her own deceased brother continues to plague her, the rake, and now another, who is very much of the flesh, Dougald MacNeill, has her thinking marrying a rake might just have its benefits. Dougald’s sister, who is one fiesty ghost, has offered to help Alana keep Dougald in line if he thinks of even straying.
But who sent Alana on a fool’s errand in the first place to remove her from the Cameron’s lands and set her squarely in Dougald’s care, and who really killed her father and her brother, and what has it all to do with Alana? Will she and Dougald learn the truth before it is too late?

Yes!!! Lovely review for Highland Rake!
Not all of my Highlander series books have paranormal elements, but this one I had a lot of fun with when Alana, the heroine, can commune with ghosts. Can you imagine if they pestered you all the time, and you had to keep it a secret in medieval times? Well, today, you could pretend to be talking to someone on a cell phone. But back then?

5.0 out of 5 stars Love The Highlanders, March 15, 2014

This book is a delightful mix of things, Handsome devilish rogue of a highlander, Dougald. Our Damsel in distress Alana who can also see ghost which adds paranormal. Murder and mystery. There is a good story to this book.

Lady Alana is lured from her clan. The MacNeill’s find her on their land and take her to their castle. Her rescuer is Douglad MacNeill who has a reputation as a rake. I don’t want to get into spoilers because it will ruin it for you but the romance is hot. The ghosts can be comical sometimes and in with it all they have to solve why Alana’s brother and father were murdered and if some one wants her dead too!
If you like the old Highlander clan books with their feuds and male attitudes you will love this. Terry Spear is a great story teller.

Thanks to Pam, for loving the story!

Do you see the turtle in the swamp? This was at the Arboretum in Spring, Texas.

Have a super great Saturday!!!
