A Recipe For Holiday Fun

Though it may sound just a little cliche', Christmas really is my favorite time of the year. It seems like everything around me tends to go on hold when December 1st comes around, but I don't mind. All the catching up afterward never fails to be worth the fun! One of my favorite traditions is the cookies and candy- hence the early start. Actually, for quite a few years no one would have rightfully trusted me with a cooking spoon and I don't blame them for a moment. The year my grandmother passed away however all of that changed. Everyone else was too dejected at her passing to want to cook. Though I wasn't sure I could do the job, I knew she wouldn't want the Christmas spirit to fade so I took the risk. Ever since that year, I have continued to cook many of the same recipes she did and many others. For anyone interested, I am listing a few links to some of my favorite holiday goodies. I'd love to hear what you think!

Irish Cream Fudge:

Bounty Balls:

Sugar Cookies:

Merry Christmas everyone!

All In Perspective

At one point 10,000 words seemed like a lot! Now, looking back on that, it's amazing how much has changed. Near the end of last week, I finally hit that mark with my current work. I will admit I was thrilled, but that is more because I now see this as a solid starting point rather than a finish line.

In that time so much has changed and been rearranged within the plotline itself. The process of keeping up with the flow of the story is an adventure in itself!

My biggest goal, to add a few extra layers to the story, appears to be nicely materializing. This, of course, makes the process a little more complex, but it's been worth every second! As soon as I draw closer to the finish line I will be sure to share a glimpse.

For now, happy reading,

Moving Forward

In an effort to more closely connect with my readers, I have attempted to keep my social media pages a little more up-to-date. I have to admit, I have thoroughly enjoyed the process! This especially holds true with sites like Pinterest and Instagram where I can use photos to share pieces of myself on a more personal level. I love to hear your thoughts and opinions on these, so feel free to stop by and check them out.

As for "Almost Wonderful"- I am happy to say I am slowly making ground. Having shifted locations, I find the characters very intriguing to work with as well as very enjoyable. I love their depth and spirit. When the time grows closer I will post an excerpt here for your thoughts and diversion. Until then keep watching.

Happy reading,

Busy and Loving It!

So far it has been a wonderful summer, even if I haven't taken a great deal of time to lounge by the pool with a martini in one hand and a fresh book in the other. Honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. It seems like I enjoy life far more when my wheels are spinning. I am thrilled to announce, I have officially reached and surpassed the first turning point of the plot for "A Lady by Nightfall". Between the renovation we are undertaking around our house, the new blog I have been keeping up for a little diversity, and the fight to keep up with my son, it was starting to seem like quite a long road to get there.

Due to the added layers of this book's storyline, I have had to put far more time into planning and examining the various turns so those features of the plot that are interwoven, are smoothly laced together. I always love a challenge, so I don't regret it for a moment. Even more to the point, I never get bored. That said, I am more anxious now than ever to see the finished project. No doubt, I'll have more information soon. For now, enjoy a little fun in the sun!

Have a wonderful 4th of July,

New Experiences

Summer once again fills the air luring many people towards the natural beauty of the outdoors. As for me, I look forward to resuming my daily bike rides. One of my favorite pastimes, an hour cycling along the roads always allows for the perfect opportunity to ponder both new and progressing ideas.

I hope everyone is enjoying reading my recent posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them. Though I have previously dipped my hand into freelance writing, I have never practiced the art with a consistent effort. I've come to find I derive great pleasure in the literary art. For as long as I can remember I have carried a passion for research- no matter the topic. Now I have found another outlet that allows me to put my talent to use. I love to hear from my readers. Do you have a particular topic you would like to see an article on? If so, you can email me at or leave your comment below. I will be happy to oblige you in your interest.

Happy reading,

Finally Finished!

I will say I called it just about on the dot when I said it would take fifty hours. Now, I am thrilled to say my author website is officially revamped! After experimenting in certain aspects of webpage building I had no idea were anywhere near that complex I completely understand why people are paid so much to create websites.
That said, it was worth every second! Upon a closer inspection, the previous version of the page struck me as a semi-professional catastrophe put together by an uninformed teen. No surprise there since that's pretty much what I was when I originally built it. Please let me know what you think of the new look. Enjoy the face lift. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Talk soon,

Taking A Dive

It's been approximately a year since my family and I moved to a new home. Since that point nothing has gone in classic order. Of course, when you take into account the fact that my whole life has been a storybook in one form or another, it's not entirely surprising. Between piecing together another book one puzzle piece at a time and redecorating a house this has been frustrating at times. Prior to the move I always had more then enough time to focus my attention on one thing. Nonetheless I am slowly making progress in both fields.
I'm coming to find that as bad a rap as the trait has, stubbornness can be as positive as it is negative. It all depends on the setting. This realization came some months ago when I threatened to restore an antique hutch for the house. I told my dad and my son, "It'll only take a couple of weeks. It's well worth the $125 bucks!" Three months later the task didn't seem quite so simple, nonetheless I was thrilled that I had seen it through. That said, this is the same quality that keeps me pushing two things at once. I apologize for the extended time frame for the publication of this book- it is a first and, I can promise, a last. In the meantime here is a little casual reading to keep you busy: Recently I started working with this magazine. It seems they published the articles under my everyday name, Randi Fosse. I hope you enjoy the reading! Feedback is always welcome.

Happy Reading!
