Monday Blog: Old & New Obsessions Collide While POPping into a Bookstore this Weekend

As a child, I apparently had a bit of a doll problem. If a doll existed, I wanted it. As an adult, I got over my doll collecting obsession because you can't be an adult who buys and collects dolls, right? Therefore, instead, I transferred that obsessive nature to collecting other things, books obviously. (And, shhh, shoes too.)

To All the Books I’ve Loved Before… Why Do We Become So Attached to Our Books?

You know the song "To All the Girls I've Loved Before"? The song that goes ... "who travel in and out my door...I dedicate this song." Change "girl" to "books" and that is what today's blog is about. To all the books I've loved before.

If You’re Going to San Francisco…10 Reasons You Must Go to Green Apple Books

On the day we arrived in San Francisco my friend said, what do you want to do? My response? Go to Green Apple Books! Here's why I love this place and why anyone visiting San Francisco needs to make sure this is part of their visit.

Traveling with The Travelers: San Francisco Edition Day 1 – A Bookish Trip

When I visited New York City in December, I took my book, The Travelers, along for some photo ops. No, the fact that people looked at me like a crazy person as I propped up a book in windows, subway stations and restaurants didn't discourage me from doing it again in a new location, this time San Francisco!

2017 New Year Bookstagram Fun With The Travelers

The Travelers and I did not travel anywhere for New Year's Eve. We stayed in our lovely neighborhood in Northern Virginia and hung out with friends. But, that doesn't mean we didn't have fun. Check out these Travelers bookstagrams. I think maybe we had a little too much fun...

In Search of…2017: Future’s So Bright, Gotta Wear Shades

Two days ago I was on a mission. I thought it would be easy! I wanted some New Year's Eve party supplies and decorations. The goal of this excursion? No, silly, not a party, that's too obvious.

Crazy in NYC: Traveling with The Travelers Day 1!

The Travelers took a little tour of New York City along with the dance company my daughter is a part of (C4 Dance Company) yesterday. (I luckily got to come with them!) The Travelers also had a little pal. (Jane Bennet from Pride and Prejudice Zombies.) She shares the same last name as the main characters in my book (Dagny Bennet and her family). She's also a sassy girl from a fantasy book with connections to the past, like my book. Plus, I have a recent obsession with POP figurines. So she seemed like a great side kick for our little trip through the city. It all began Sunday night...

Monday Blog: No Sleep Till…Great Books and Movies Set in NYC

No sleep till...Well, not Brooklyn. But we did stay up late getting into Manhattan last night. I think that's close enough that I had to quote the Beastie Boys song. So, now, I'm happily in Manhattan, my former home. (I did live in Brooklyn for a little bit in a tiny apartment with an oddly huge, completely pink bathroom. Only in NYC people.) This is the first place I tried a knish. The first place I went to a professional basketball game. (My husband had season tickets to the Knicks once upon a time.) The place my daughter was born. If I'm being honest, when I left the area, I left a little bit of my heart behind. NYC will always feel like home to me. In honor of my trip here, are some of my favorite movies and books set in NYC.
