Why Skip the Latte and Solve Your Finance Woes is a Bullshit Philosophy... and Why I'm Skipping the Latte Anyway

Once upon a time a very long time ago (the nineties) someone said: If people just stopped buying lattes they could save so much money!!! And thus began the gospel of "give up something cheap you like today for moderate savings in the future."

Let's do the math.

I buy *mumble mumble* lattes a week...

Get Wicked With Entangled Blog Hop: Sexy Charcters and Sinful Costumes

What's your costume going to be this year? Last year I went as the Wicked Witch of the East. Black dress. Striped tights. Red high heels. (Give me an idea for this year's costume in the comments--or just tell me one of your favorites--toenter to win an ebook copy of one of my books... drawn on Halloween). My two books with Entangled are Leaving Las Vegas and Too Hot to Handle (Tagline: He stole her heart, she stole his car). If the main characters were going to a Halloween party this weekend they'd definitely go all out. How would they dress? Take a peak and find out...

Detroit is for Zombies... and Dog Parks

When I first moved to Detroit it seemed like a war zone. There were no thai restaurants, no fancy coffee shops, and no dog parks. Today, we've got three dog parks:
  • The Detroit Dog Park on 17th and Rose Street--It's got a killer view of the train station and is close enough to Astros to pick up a flat white on the way. The dogs are friendly. No small dog area.
  • Shinola Dog Park on Cass and Canfield--Privately owned by Shinola, the fences are a little lower and there is a small dog owner (although everyone hangs out in the big dog area). The dogs are friendly... the people are a little more pretentious. You can walk to Melt afterwards for an ice cream.
  • Grand Circus Dog Park at Adams and Woodward--Downtown dogs and downtown people. If you live downtown then this is the park for you. Otherwise... there's no parking.
Which one is your favorite? Did I miss any? Have you seen any zombies at them??

Vampires vs. Zombies: 50 Shades of Undead Hotties

I write novels that stomp all over the fine line between urban fantasy and horror. Set in Detroit, the Dead Sexy series is made up of fast paced adventure stories with lots of mystery and tons of romance. The heroine is a mortuary attendant/hunter and the hero is dead... really dead... he's a zombie.

Some people have been asking: "Why zombies? Why not vampires? Vampires are sexy." I totally understand. Vampires are sexy. Brad Pitt is sexy. James Marsters is Sexy. Robert Pattinson is sexy. True Blood is all about the sexy. Why is that?

First, let's take a look at vampires:
