Every year, men spend a whole helluva lot of time talking about their fantasy football teams. Who got drafted. Who got traded. Who got injured. Who got the most yards. And on and on and on. And it just seems to me that if you’re going to have a fantasy, you could come up with something better to fantasize about than football. Like maybe hot guys. Sooo . . . I’ve decided to come up with my own Fantasy Boyfriend Team, and every week, I’ll be drafting a new player. Feel free to join in and pick your own team. (Duplications are A-okay.) This week, for my first-round draft choice, I’m going to choose a tight-end. For those of you who have seen the wedding episode of Outlander, you’ll understand why I chose Jamie Fraser aka Sam Heughan. I will expect him to play in his kilt, and if he does a good job of fulfilling my fantasies, he gets a fanny pat.
Is there any time of year more beautiful than Fall? I took these on my morning walk with Roo.

Last winter, I was moaning and groaning to Hubba about our daughter being in Hawaii when we were stuck in the cold. Well . . . my moaning and groaning paid off! For the last two weeks, we’ve been in beautiful Maui, enjoying the sunshine, surf, and sand. Here are some pics and a little information, just incase you ever find yourself in paradise.:o)
Right now, you can preorder the ebook version of Ring in the Holidays for just $4.99 or less at Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and pretty much every place but Amazon.

At the end of the summer, I always have regrets: I should’ve written more. I should’ve read more. I should’ve exercised more. And I really should’ve gone camping and enjoyed the great outdoors more. I always forget that I’m pretty much a city girl who runs screaming when a fly buzzes around her head because I’m convinced it’s a bee. I’ve been on numerous camping trips in my life–and I’m not talking luxury condos and cabins, but honest-to-goodness tent-pitching, fire-building, freeze-your-butt-off camping trips–and not one ended with me happily singing Kumbaya around a campfire. Here are a few Katie camping incidents: rolling down a mountain, almost catching myself on fire, falling in a creek, getting bitten by a mysterious bug and leg swelling, running into a bear, torrential rains with leaking tent, and burning the roof of my mouth with s’mores because I couldn’t wait to taste that gooey goodness. And still, all it takes is seeing a cute little camper on Pinterest for me to start daydreaming about going camping again. It’s a good thing Hubba knows me so well. This year when I brought it up, he turned the television channel to Naked and Afraid. After three episodes, I remembered why I don’t like camping. And since I have no pictures of my camping trip fiascos. Here are some pictures of cute little campers. And one for Roo:o)
I spent this last week in San Antonio for the Romance Writers of America conference. It’s a time for writers to hone their skills at workshops, network with publishers, agents, and publicists, and pretty much party down with their friends.:o)
