Research leads to laughter!

Anyone who knows me, knows I am not a fan of country music, so, when I needed the title of a country music song to be playing a scene in my book and came across this list...I realized why!

I've highlighted some of my favorites!

The Best Of The Worst Country-western Song Titles
1 - Drop Kick Me, Jesus, Through The Goalposts Of Life
2 - Get Your Biscuits In The Oven And Your Buns In The Bed
3 - Get Your Tongue Outta My Mouth 'Cause I'm Kissing You Goodbye
4 - Her Teeth Were Stained, But Her Heart Was Pure
5 - How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away?
6 - How Can You Believe Me When I Say I Love You When You Know I've Been A Liar All My Life?
7 - I Been Roped And Thrown By Jesus In The Holy Ghost Corral
8 - I Changed Her Oil, She Changed My Life
9 - I Don't Know Whether To Kill Myself Or Go Bowling
10 - I Fell In A Pile Of You And Got Love All Over Me
11 - I Flushed You From The Toilets Of My Heart.
12 - I Keep Forgettin' I Forgot About You�…

Israeli Street Fighting...and date night??

Well, in the name of "research",   I persuaded my husband to join me in a krav maga class in Madison. My thanks go out to John Lacy who is a Senior Instructor in Urban Krav Maga and all his students at Black Belt America in Madison, Wisconsin!


My husband and I made it a "date night" and dang...was it fun!

I went to strengthen the writing in my fight scenes and learned more about self-defence than I could have hoped for...

The instructor recommended I read these two books - both are incredible! All women, by the way, should read The Gift of Fear.

So...one more new experience checked off and I can tackle the fight
scenes in my novels now and make them that much more realistic...cool...
