As you read this posting, I’m golfing at La Quinta with two friends, an event I bull-dozed into happening. Enough of saying ‘let’s take a golf trip together.’ If this is something a bunch of friends want to do, then someone has to organize the ding-dang thing.
Time’s a wasting and I'm not getting any younger. I'm taking control of my bucket list!
Most of you know I’m a golfer, leaving my writing desk to play a couple times a week...for exercise, for the competition and for the camaraderie. My husband doesn’t play golf, so I’m going on these trips with my girlfriends. Ready? Set? Go!

Three of us are driving to Palm Springs, staying there three nights to play golf courses #10, #21 and #11.
No question about it, we will have fun and we will be challenged…and we’ll be ready to play more of the courses on our bucket list next year. Goal? Three courses a year for the next 9 years. Can we do it? You bet we can!
Talk about meeting goals: I’ll be trotting out two novels this summer. Here’s a sneak peak at one cover; expect pages in June or July. Meanwhile, grab LIE CATCHERS if you haven’t yet read it!
