Today is the first day of summer. It's also my wedding anniversary. We've been married for 13 years and together for 25. I chose the first day of summer for our wedding since it is an easy day to remember. Also, we were officially married on June 21. Sometimes the summer solstice is on June 22. When that happens, we celebrate for two days!

This time of year is a great time to catch up on my reading. I spend a lot of time at beach which is a five minute drive from home. There are several beaches we frequent – Cape Hedge Beach and Long Beach in Rockport, Massachusetts and Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It's best to go at low tide since the surf is so high at high tide that there isn't much sand on the beach. We go for a daily walk – which I can't do for a few days since I twisted my ankle on rocks in the Long Beach parking lot – and toast in the sun while reading. My husband goes in the water but I usually don't because it's too freaking cold. This is New England, after all. The water up here is not bath water like in Hawaii. I own a shortie wetsuit that I will wear when I'm crazy enough to go swimming. Mostly, I walk, suntan, and read.

I'm currently in the middle of yet another Stephanie Plum novel. I got hooked on Janet Evanovich's books a few months ago. Right now, I'm reading "Plum Spooky". That’s my beach reading. My home reading is "The Gazetteer of British Ghosts". There are a lot of ghostly monks in Great Britain, LOL. Both books are loads of fun.

Readers often ask me where I get my ideas. I get them from many sources including reading. I like gothic romances, erotica, cozy mysteries, horror, and dark fiction. I've been a huge fan of Edgar Allan Poe since I was a kid. It was hard to avoid Poe growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, where he lived for a few years before he mysteriously died. So when Circlet Press announced a submission call for erotic stories inspired by Poe, I jumped at the chance to submit something. My story was accepted! It's entitled "A Correspondence Between Edgar Allan Poe and Frances Sargent Osgood". Osgood was one of Poe's paramours, and I imagined a series of letters between the two. It will soon appear in the anthology "Dressed In Black: Erotic Tales of Edgar Allan Poe".

I'm also influenced by real life events, especially strange and goofy ones. A few years back, I read a hilarious news story about an Ohio man who annoyed his Home Owner's Association as well as his neighbors when he put up a zombie nativity scene as his Christmas display. I laughed my ass off, and wrote a story based on it entitled "In The Doghouse" which appears in "The Naughty List", published by Red Moon Romance, an imprint of World Weaver Press. Nicky and Angela were having yet another fight, and in retaliation she stole his zombie baby Jesus and replaced it with a garden gnome. He wants his statue back. She refuses to give it to him. Of course, the heated fight led to heated, sexy exchanges.

I'm fresh out of story ideas at the moment, so I'll grab a few sexy erotic anthologies and get some inspiration. There are a few wonderful submission calls out there I'd love to write for. I just need the right story. I know in this beautiful weather at the start of summer with the ocean at my feet, I'll find all the inspiration I need.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?
I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.

P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data
