Truth in Stereotype

I got out of our car in the church parking lot today and saw this:



The family that got into this vehicle after the service couldn’t have looked more ordinary—a twenty-something couple with a newborn and a three-year old dressed in their Sunday best.

It’s scary to be a liberal in Texas.


The Harpsichord

Harpsichord1Last week’s chamber music concert was held in the Blanton Museum at University of Texas.Harpsichord2The orchestra played J.S. Bach’s Concerto for 2 Violins, Strings and Continuo in D Minor, BWV 1043. The musical composition featured a harpsichord.

Substance Abuse

MyfriendscallmecocoYou know those bumper stickers, “My son and my money go to **insert college here**?” I need one that says, “My daughter’s college fund was spent at Orange Leaf.” The frozen yogurt is addictive, expensive, and  less than a mile from my house. I’d better get my speech planned, “I’m sorry, honey. Yale’s out of the question. We spent that cash on My Friends Call Me Cocoa Chocolate.'”

The Trouble With Fate

Found in the wild in San Antonio, TX, The Trouble With Fate, a new novel by Leigh Evans.

The Trouble With Fate1

The clever log line says, “Meet Hedi Peacock. She’s half Fae. Half Were. And all Trouble…”

The Trouble With Fate2

I took Hedi home.

The Trouble With Fate3

I couldn’t put the book down. Hedi’s adventures kept me up all weekend!

New York Times best-selling author Darynda Jones says, “What a delicious read! Chock-full of fun twists and sexy diversions, one of them named Robson. Leigh Evans is definitely one to watch. Get this book! You will not be disappointed!”
