Adrenaline Rush

I am thankful

... that I was looking straight ahead and not in my rearview mirror or down at my speedometer.

... that the speed limit on that section of road was not 65.

... that I have lived in this area long enough now to know that the whitetails around here usually don't travel alone.

... that I just had my brakes redone a couple of weeks ago.

... that I had enough tread left on my tires to come to a screeching halt when I saw deer 2 and 3.

... that there was no one behind me when I did.

... that all EIGHT deer made it across the road, just a couple of feet in front of my bumper...

It's beginning to smell a lot like zombies...

Those of you who know me know that I don't really care for Christmas because of all the stress.

So, what in the WORLD would make me hum Christmas carols before Thanksgiving?

Answer: This new book I heard about on Pod of Horror #57!

Check it out:
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies

Oh, yeah. Earworm. Definitely earworm.

Lynda Hilburn, author of The Vampire Shrink

Just posted: Interview with Lynda Hilburn, author of the Kismet Knight, Vampire Psychologist series which includes The Vampire Shrink and Dark Harvest.

Poor Lynda. We actually recorded this interview way back in June 11, 2009, but then vacation and an over-full schedule of appearances and signings made my podcast post-production worse. I think I had one or two I still needed to produce when I interviewed hers, which didn't help.

I had forgotten how interesting the interview was and how much fun we had! It was a real pleasure to listen to it again as I cleaned up the sound. Hope you enjoy it. In addition to being a paranormal romance writer, Lynda makes her living as a licensed psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, professional psychic/tarot reader, university instructor, and workshop presenter. Makes for a good combination!
