I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

Maybe I don’t need to worry so much

This happened last month but it still makes me smile. We went on a family picnic for the 4th of July with Nick's brothers and sisters. The place we go is deep in the mountains and we have no cell service. We always go for breakfast, so we leave home pretty early. We went, had a great picnic, and headed home about lunchtime.

When we were about halfway home Mollie began laughing and muttering, ‘I can’t believe them.’ It seems that Mollie and two teaching friends keep an ongoing text chain. These two ladies are in their late forties and early fifties with half grown children. They had been texting for a while when they noticed Mollie wasn’t with them. This is the conversation that followed.

Where’s Mollie? She’s usually up by now.

I don’t know. This is weird. Did she say she was going off today.

She didn’t say anything to me.

I’m going to call her. This isn’t normal.

Let me know.

Well, she’s not answering. Should we call her mama? I don’t want to scare her if it’s nothing.

I know. I don’t want her to worry.

I’m going to ride over to her house and see if everything’s okay…

Well, I’m here and the dogs are here, but her car is gone. I’m gonna go ahead and water her plants while I’m here. 

These exchanges and driving over and watering the plant took about two hours all together and it was about then that Mollie popped into the conversation.

Good grief girls, I told you I was going on a picnic with my family. We just don’t get cell reception there.

You didn’t tell me you were going!

You didn’t tell me either!

I did too. You all don’t pay any attention when we talk in person. But I do appreciate you watering my plants.

No problem. But don’t run away and scare us again.

I suppose if her friends are this attentive, I don’t have to spend my time worrying about her. I think they’ve got her covered. And her plants too.

Another weekend visit

I found another place to spend a beautiful weekend. The house always makes me feel like I'm visiting Cassie. I didn't spend the weekend writing but I spent it with my sister, our favorite cousin and all our menfolk. But as nice as it was I loved getting back home too. I'm planning on staying here a while.

Need a Good Summer Read?

I'll be on my way to my cousin's lake house by the time this goes up. We didn't have our reunion this year, but the lake trip was still on. It's a lovely, relaxing, peaceful spot and it's interior is my basic lay out of Cassie and Tom's home. So I feel like I'm visiting with them too.

In the hopes that new readers still come by, this post tells you about my books. This was up at PK Corey's Reading Room a couple of weeks ago, so if you read it there you can stop now. But for those reading who don't know about my books, please check this out and see if you'd like to try one.

I write love stories. My stories are about Tom and Cassie and a few other ‘mature’ couples who have long-term, deep and steady loving marriages. Allie and Jenny and their husbands have the passion of young love as they begin their marriages and Sophie and Ryder, still in their teens, have the excited discovering love of those just starting out. Adding to that is the deep abiding love of friends – I write about the friendships all women, maybe all people, yearn for. The love is the most important for me but running a close second it the spankings. My couples all have chosen to incorporate spanking into their lives, mostly for fun, but yes, discipline often comes up also.


This is what you’ll find in my books – love, friendship and spanking! Exactly what I’ve always wanted to read myself.


Here are my three series:


Cassie’s Space series


These ten books introduce Cassie. She is my friend and has been since she wandered into my imagination fifty-four years ago. She is married to Tom, the man who loves her in a way that makes my heart nearly burst with happiness for the two of them. He loves her, guides her, protects her and when necessary, spanks the fool out of her. I’ve been told that their adventures are exciting, funny and realistic. Their love-life is passionate and fulfilling – but you’ll hear no graphic details, Cassie is a lady and giving too much detail would not be proper.

Cal’s Law series


Cal and Jenny are one of my younger couple. The spanking in their relationship began mere minutes after they met, and Cal hasn’t let up much since. There relationship has it’s struggles, but these two are meant to be together. They live in the same town as Cassie and Tom and there is a lot of interactions among the character of both series. Jenny is not as reluctant as Cassie to openly discuss her sex life, so you’ll find a little more spice in this series.


On the River series


In this, my latest series, everyone is around – all the characters I’ve grown to love over the years are living on the area of the river that they call The Landing. Their lives, their adventures, even their spankings sometimes intertwine. By this time in the series, I’m just typing as my characters tell me what’s happening. And I love it!

These books do take you through time as it passes, but please don’t think you have to read them in order. Start anywhere. Just grab one and give it a try. If you are a spanking enthusiast, I know you'll enjoy it.


I’ll close today with a review on the latest book. This is one of the finest reviews I’ve ever had.

Meanwhile, in New York City…

Collin has finally taken his first Subway ride since his accident. He told me he was feeling a little PTSD beforehand, but he did it. They went to one of their favorite bars in Manhattan. They got a booth against the wall where Collin could put his foot up and as LJ was up and down getting drinks and greeting people everyone came to Collin and reached down to give him a hug. I think it did him a lot of good to be out on the town with friends. It was very tiring, but he's getting a little better all the time.  By the end of the evening is foot was swelling some so they took a car home. 


He's still on crutches when he goes out, he’s down to one crutch when he’s in the apartment. And he ordered this cane that he found online. It’s totally him! He’ll definitely be dashing when he can go out with that.


LJ has been at his new job at the museum for about three weeks now. I’ve barely gotten to talk to him but in the few minutes we have talked, he seems to really like it. He says that there are people who have been working there for years and are still happy there, so that’s a good sign.


He can see the park where he used to work from the museum. He sent me a text one day when the heat index was near a hundred degrees in NYC. It said, “Sometimes I stand here in my air-conditioned office and look at Little Island like this...” 

If you were to ever see LJ in person now you would know him – he truly looks just like this emoji. That smirk is pure LJ.

One of my happy places


Awww… I needed that! I had a great few days in the mountains. I just love that little Inn, and I’m afraid it won’t be there much longer. It’s run by two sisters and the husband of one of them. Maintaining the garden’s alone would be a huge chore and then, of course, taking care of their guest and the rooms. The sister I spoke with sounded doubtful that they would be able to keep it opened much longer. I understand, they aren’t much younger than me, but I will miss this place when it’s gone.

Here are a few pictures:


I sat here and wrote for several hours.


I met other people out here and had a little wine.

And here are just some of their beautiful flowers.


All the guest I met were nice and friendly and I enjoyed talking with them. I’d tell them I was up there writing and that usually piqued their interest. Of course, most asked what I wrote. I gave them my usual spiel, “I mostly write romance, but I was tired of reading about twenty-year-olds and my main couple is above sixty.” I’d go on to say, “It basically a sweet little old couple mixed with Fifty Shades of Gray.”

I loved watching their reactions! Most of the women’s eyes sparkled as they laughed. “Well, that sounds interesting!” They’d tell me. And would give them one of my business cards. Once in a great while I’d get a frozen stare and a frosty, “Oh.” I didn’t bother wasting my cards on them. But I’m happy to say that most of the people I talked with seemed very receptive.

I was able to get a lot written. The end of the book is in sight – I’m not there yet, but it’s coming.

I'm off to the mountains

 … and I’m loving it! I’m on the trip I've been looking forward to. I’m in the mountains, where it cooler (still not really cool, but…) and I get to do nothing but write for the next few days. Internet is not the best here, which may keep me more on task.


This is the beautiful place. I’ve posted about it often. It old and quaint. Each room has a nice ceiling fan and a screen door. Open the back window and you get a nice breeze through the room.  

The gardens here are beautiful too. These folks put in a lot of work on them. I’ll post pictures when I get home. There are several places out in the gardens where I can sit and write. In the evening people usually gather under the pergola for a little wine.


I’m right at the edge of town so I can walk to tons of little shops, several good restaurants, and most important a wonderful ice cream shop.

Now it’s time to buckle down and get this book finished.

Today's the day!

It’s my anniversary! I began blogging sixteen years ago today. I can still capture the excitement I felt when I found these blogs back in 2006. I was coming off a really bad time medically. In the spring of 2006 I was feeling a thousand times better and determined not to waste a minute. What a joy it was to find people like me who not only enjoyed spanking but were willing to talk about it and share their stories and their advice. I truly felt like a kid in a candy shop with unlimited funds!


People have come and gone over the years, but the friends I’ve made have been the best in the world, both those I’ve only met online and those I’ve been privileged to meet in person. It’s true that blogging has changed a great deal over that time. I’m so glad I was here for the heyday of blogging, at least it felt that way. Back then there were so very many people blogging and commenting, it was like a little party every day. The crowd is smaller now, but I still love reading what everyone posts. And I still feel a rush of joy at every comment I get.


I won’t be out here forever, but I’ll be here as long as I enjoy it and people stop by to read to say hello.
