Helpful Holiday Diet Tips

1. If no one sees you eat it, it has no calories.

2. If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, they cancel each other out.

3. If you eat standing up, it doesn't count!

4. STRESSED is just DESSERTS spelled backwards.

5. If you eat the food off someone else's plate, it doesn't count toward your daily calorie intake.

6. Cookie pieces contain no calories because the process of breakage cause calorie leakage. This also applies to fudge, divinity, and any and all holiday goodies on the table.

7. Food used for medicinal purposes have no calories. This includes: any chocolate used for energy, brandy, cheesecake, and Haagen-Daz Ice Cream.

8. When eating with someone else, calories don't count if you both eat the same amount.

9. Movie-related foods are much lower in calories simply because they are a part of the entertainment experience and not part of one's personal fuel. This includes: Milk Duds, popcorn with butter, Junior Mints, Snickers, Gummi Bears, mounds, and soda.

Do you have a favorite you'd like to add to the list?

Merry Christmas!

Spirit of the Rebellion

My first book is now in galley form and we will get a release date almost any minute! This is a paranormal romantic adventure set in Tennessee...

What is the book about?

Ready for a fresh chapter in her life, Shae Lynn Montgomery accepts a job translating a cache of Civil War documents from Wisconsin’s famous Norwegian regiment. The assignment takes her to a haunted mansion known as Starling Plantation and face-to-face with a handsome captain—its angry ghost in residence.

Tristan Jordahl, falsely accused of treason, has no use for the living—not even the lovely translator invading his home. Despite Tristan’s best efforts to frighten her, Shae Lynn refuses to leave, and reluctantly, Tristan enlists her help to clear his name. But as they grow closer to the truth—and to each other—an evil spirit makes it clear he will do anything to stop them.

Can a love that transcends time overcome all obstacles?

I hope to share the adventure soon!

Stay tuned for news!
