About

This blog is a collection of “blurbs” from life as I see it. Sometimes the blurb involves a funny little story, sometimes a photo or two, sometimes both. I enjoy interacting with my readers so please don’t be shy. Leave a comment or click Like if you find it even mildly entertaining.

My blurbs have no rhyme or reason. They range from the past to the present and have no set length. I use as many words as it takes to tell the story. The topics, too, represent whatever happens to be in my head at the moment. It might be an anecdote from long ago, or it might be a snippet of my travels in the distant past or the present. I never know what will be on my blog next, so bring an open mind if you’re coming to read.

And of  course, I’ll be trying to interest you in the novels I’ve written, each of which has its own page to click on the menu of this  blog. Please visit these pages to find out more about my books.

  1. Hi There,
    Would you be willing to participate in something we are doing for Susie Lindau on Friday morning? I am contacting as many of her followers as possible. My thought is that we all post on our own blogs on Friday with the same title, “Susie Strong”. The content would say something simple like, We are thinking of you. I haven’t known Susie for long but this blogging world is such a family. I thought it would be nice for her to see this message from as many of us as possible. Her husband is going to be updating us after her surgery. He can tell her or she can see it once she is up to it. Are you in? Thanks, Maria aka brickhousechick

  11. Always exciting to find a new author writing about BC! Darlene Jones (via a Writer’s Wednesday promo for my new release over on P.C. Zick’s blog) recommended your book, The Wind Weeps and imagine my surprise when I hop over to Amazon and see it is up for free! Many thanks. It is downloaded and on my TBR soon list. I’ve promoted the book out on Facebook and Twitter. Best of luck. Hope we can connect again.

  16. I just had to come and look – your name caught my eye. Anneli – Finnish? I am Raili, live in Australia, born in Finland. Came here with my family as a kid. Your blogging style sounds very similar to mine. I rarely know what I will be posting till I sit down to write it. I’m going to poke around here a bit, so you’ll probably notice my footprints.

    • I’ve heard that Anneli is a popular name in Finland and Sweden. I was born in Germany and I suspect my parents just liked the name and borrowed it from Finland and Sweden. Anyway, I’m very happy to “meet” you, Raili, and hope to see you on my blog again. I will check yours out too.
