Gabriel's Breakfast Recipe

Many people are curious about some of Gabriel's recipes from my Paint World Series.  Here's his breakfast casserole.

Gabriel's Breakfast Casserole Bake

6 fresh brown eggs
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
Cut up ham
Cut up cheese-- I use a mixture of different cheeses
Dry instant potatoes
Some Nature's Seasoning, pepper, paprika, and parsley

Mix all ingredients with the instant potatoes being the last thing. Use as much as it would take to make it the consistency of grits before they are cooked.  Should be kind of lumpy.  Butter a small rectangular Pyrex dish and pour in the batter.  Pop it in an oven of 350 degrees.  Let cook until it's all bubbly and turning golden around the sides.  Add more cheese on top, if you like, and let it cook for about 10 - 15 more minutes, until knife comes out clean.

Paws' Brothers

As promised I am blogging about what my Paws brothers are up to in their 3rd book in the Paint World series.  Gabriel and Drake's catering business, Dark Cuisine, is doing better than ever!  They are constantly involved with a gig for someone of either their old life, or in their new life of Paint World.  Tempest is playing a larger role in Dark Cuisine as the public relations director.  She is also having to fill in for Drake while he spends more time with his new friend, Rusty.  I am about 3/4 of the way finished with the 3rd novel in my series.  Look forward to posting it on ebooks when I finish it!


My first interview!

I was interviewed on Michelle Scott's blog today.   This is my first interview.  You can find it here:  http://www.mscottfiction.com/21stCenturyWriter/?p=105

I hope this is a springboard for my writing to take off.  I love writing and can't wait for more people to enjoy my books as my children do!  This series is my boys' favorite of all my writing because it really does showcase them and how they like to view themselves.  Gives them a bit of a confidence booster each time we read portions of it.  I hope it will help other boys to be themselves and be confident in the person they are becoming. 

Look forward to see you here!

The Martha Rules

In starting my new art business, and I have begun reading Martha Stewart's The Martha Rules.  She is a brilliant business woman.  She explains how many people don't even know what thing they are passionate about.  I am passionate about my writing and my art.  I especially enjoy illustrating what I have written.  Now I am going to get the opportunity to help others to learn the enjoyment art can give to a person.  It's an awesome feeling.  Everyone always seems to think artist are rather eccentric.... I guess we are.  I tend to march along to my own beat, and make myself happy in my own way more than I worry about what others think. I used to worry about it being a good thing; now, I know it's a good thing! God has given each of us certain talents which, if we use them, can help fulfill a certain need within society.  All we have to do is "Be still, and know."  One of my favorite verses.

Now if you will excuse me, I must finish my watermelon and cantaloupe.  As Martha would say, "It's a good thing."
