 Wel­come to my home page, where you can get the lat­est scoop!

2014 is Superb! 

Sorry I’ve been so quiet, and here it is Octo­ber. What have I been doing?

Well, in honor of my Chi­nese birth sign, the Year of the Horse, I’ve been doing a few horse-related things. I showed my horse, Snoopy, for the first time at the PCHA Trail Clas­sic (we fin­ished in the top 20 out of 40 horses). I also trav­eled to Scot­land to see the Kelpies, and ride a horse across the High­lands. My dear hus­band, who endures my horse-craziness, went with me and even escorted me back to the states via Lex­ing­ton, Ken­tucky, where we vis­ited the Ken­tucky Horse Park. HEAVEN!

In book-related news:

I released my lat­est book, MUR­DER ON THE HOOF in May, and it’s sell­ing very well. Some might say “briskly” if they wanted to tempt fate and use an adverb. It got a won­der­ful review from D. Dono­van of Mid­west Book Reviews. You can read it here — http://​gayle​car​line​.com/​m​u​r​d​e​r​-​o​n​-​t​h​e​-​h​o​of/.

I’ve spo­ken at a few groups, and taught a few work­shops. If you look at the tab on top of this web­site, you’ll see a new fea­ture: Speaking/Teaching. If you’re inter­ested in hav­ing me speak, or teach a work­shop, take a look at what I’ve done and where. Feel free to con­tact any of my ref­er­ences. I love meet­ing new people!

Where will I be next?

Octo­ber 11: This week­end is going to be fun — it’s Placentia’s Her­itage Day Fes­ti­val! We honor our home­town the sec­ond Sat­ur­day of Octo­ber, begin­ning with a pan­cake break­fast, con­tin­u­ing with a parade, and end­ing with a full day at Tri-City Park.

I will be rid­ing in the parade as one of the Pla­cen­tia Library Dis­trict Trustees (I’ll be wear­ing the sparkly cow­girl tiara-hat), then I’ll be in the park with my own booth, sell­ing my books and meet­ing folks. If you’re in the neigh­bor­hood, come by and say hello!

Novem­ber 6: I’ll make another appear­ance on Gar­rett Miller’s Rat­ed­GRa­dio show (http://​www​.blogtalkra​dio​.com/​g​a​r​r​e​t​t​m​i​l​ler). He’s got a dif­fer­ent pro­gram each night (7 p.m. PST), and all of them are fas­ci­nat­ing. Tune in — or if you can’t tune in, catch the replay of the pod­cast! What will I be talk­ing about? I’m not sure, although I have some ideas.

Novem­ber 13–16:  Boucher­con in Long Beach (http://​boucher​con2014​.com/)! I’ll be there each day, wan­der­ing aim­lessly and look­ing for friends.

If you’re going to be there, find me! I’ll be one of the authors in the Author Focus cam­paign they’re try­ing out — indi­vid­ual authors in rooms for you to go and lis­ten to, ask ques­tions of, etc. I have to admit, this didn’t work very well in Col­orado Springs, but maybe they’ve got ideas for mak­ing it work bet­ter in Long Beach. My time is Fri­day, Novem­ber 14, at 1:30 pm. I’m sched­uled oppo­site the Cadaver Dog Demon­stra­tion, so I fear my audi­ence may con­sist of me and my imag­i­nary friends. Maybe I’ll get some writ­ing done…

 

BTW, if you want to lis­ten to me ram­ble aim­lessly about writ­ing, I’ve been priv­i­leged to be a guest on two shows. You can check them out here:

•  Gar­rett Miller’s Blogtalk Radio show, Rat­ed­GRa­dio. http://​www​.blogtalkra​dio​.com/​g​a​r​r​e​t​t​m​i​l​l​e​r​/​2​0​1​3​/​0​9​/​1​3​/​r​a​t​e​d​-​g​-​r​a​dio

• Jason Matthews’ Google+ Show, Indie Authors. http://​www​.youtube​.com/​w​a​t​c​h​?​v​=​9​y​O​T​9​Z​Y​4​TnA

The mys­ter­ies and humor are all still avail­able and sell­ing as ebooks and paper­backs. Take a tour of my author page on Ama­zon, pick out your favorite, and start read­ing imme­di­ately. Why wait?

Where will I be next?

Stay tuned… I’ll post more as I book ‘em.

In the meantime,

Keep read­ing, Peeps!
