Badurday- January 19, 2013- Tavares

I wrote a short story this week with the heroine age 46 and the hero age 55. I thought it was time for me to do that since that’s my demographic now. LOL! I plan to submit it this weekend. I think there’s at least one more story with these characters so I think I’m going to be visiting with them some more. I started this story back in December but concentrated on getting it finished this week. It was initially called, The Stranger. I since decided to rename it in honor of the Tavares song, It only Takes a Minute, Girl but to stop any confusion about whether the story is about a quickie or not, I’m extending the title of the story to include more of the song so the title is It Only Takes a Minute to Fall in Love.
Here’s the video of it from Youtube:

I also have a new release this week on Tuesday- it’s called Doctor, Lover, Baronet and is available on preorder here at this link. It’s at a 10% discount until the 29th of January.

Badurday March 6, 2010

Although I am a complete history nerd and always have been, I write mostly contemporary romance.  I have several reasons.  One is that I have issues with the way women were treated and held back from their dreams in times past (Yeah.  I know, I should mine those feelings for some kick butt story). The other major reason is pure laziness.  I don’t want the “Historical police” to come after me for using the wrong language for the time (although Sayde would probably say that I should go for it due to my distaste for contractions).  I have written one historical but have been told it’ll never sell because it is based in 1920.  I couldn’t help it. It was a story that had to be told.  But, I digress from the topic of my post.  AND I know you are all saying, this is all well and good, SFCatty, but get with it already.  Where’s the bad boy and why are you telling us all this crap? Ok.  Ok.  Have some patience, I’m telling you all this because you may be shocked at my choice of genre today.

There was a show on BBC America last summer (and season two will be on this summer) that was just a wonderful little six episode show. The name of it is Being Human.  The story is about a vampire named Mitchell, a werewolf named George and a ghost named Annie.   Mitchell is trying to quit his blood addiction cold turkey and George is fighting his werewolf tendencies.  They decide to move into a flat together to try to live as humanly as possible.  The flat they move into is haunted by Annie.  She was murdered there.  She’s thrilled that they can see her.  It is a fun premise.  The funniest part is that the vampire and the werewolf both work in a hospital.  Mitchell is dead sexy (pun intended) and tempted by all the blood in the hospital.  I highly recommend this and you can download it to your I-Pod from

Mitchell is played by Aiden Turner.  A fine Irish lad. He was in an episode of The Tudors and he has a show coming on BBC called Desperate Romantics which I hope will be aired here as well.  Enjoy:
