How is everyone today? I’m cold – it’s a whopping 21 degrees in north Atlanta with a real feel of 10! It’s too cold to adult today, that’s for sure.
I’m so excited about my upcoming release, January Dreams. Only 10 days left to pre-order at the special $0.99 price! I’ve started writing the sequel and I hope to have it out to you as soon as I can. I’m also getting married in April, so it’ll be busy!
On a serious note, I am saddened by the deaths of David Bowie, Alan Rickman, and Glenn Frey. I loved each one of them and their talent was incredible. They will be missed.
When I was in 7th grade, I borrowed all of my mom’s Eagles cassette tapes and wore them out. Of course, Glenn Frey was one of my favorite Eagles, as he was the founding member. He inspired me to write poetry and helped me annoy the crap out of my friends because I was ALWAYS singing an Eagles song.
I will never forget watching Alan Rickman in Die Hard and thinking, ‘wow, he’s such a bad guy!’ Then I saw him in Robin Hood and I hated his character! He played the part perfectly and I loved it. And when I saw him portray Colonel Brandon in my favorite adaptations of my favorite Jane Austen novel, I was blown away. And of course as Severus Snape. Rickman embodied these personalities like he was really them. He made them come alive like no one else could. Of course, I loved every movie he was in and I loved his acting.
As for David Bowie…what an incredible career and to stand out from everyone else and be your own self. You always did your own thing and had impeccable talent.
All of your talent, music, movies, words, will live on. Rest in peace.
