My Florida trip

April 2016


Hey everyone, it’s been awhile since I did a post. I thought I would share my Florida trip experience. I hadn’t been to Florida in almost 20 years, so it was like a brand new adventure. Only this time I went with my husband who’s never been.

Our first day 4/18/16, we did a helicopter ride-a first for both of us. Think of a scary 300 foot-drop roller coaster ride. A helicopter ride is even scarier. It was  ...

The superficial twins on The Steve Harvey Show

Why is it that women are told to overlook looks, but men are not? Men can be very vocal about what he wants in a woman looks wise and no one bats an eye (not even women for the most part) but when a woman is particular about wanting a man who looks a certain way people lose their minds. Let’s be honest, Steve could have did a show with attractive twin brothers, and fixed them up with unattractive women. The women could have been presi...

Abstaining from sex till marriage is it worth it?

Hello everyone,

To sex or not to sex that is the question for Christian romance novels

Hello readers, I may have tackled this subject before, but since when does talking about sex ever get tiring? It is after all what makes the world go round and it’s something that’s always on everybody’s mind at some point on another. I bring this subject up specifically for Christian women. A couple of friends of mine gave me some food for thought regarding one of my books Two become one-A Destinee...

RHOA Season 8 Episode 10

Trouble on the Family Tree




For those who watch this show and caught this episode it became painfully clear to me about Kenya’s personality. She has a larger than life persona and the root of it; I feel is the abandonment by her own mother. I thought this was a perfect time to address something that goes on all too often in our communities. Kenya’s situation is not unique. In that, two paren...

They don't make romance novels for Plain Janes

Posted by Lmarbly on December 4, 2015 at 10:40 PM Comments comments (0)

“They don’t make romance novels for plain Jane’s, or women that look like me.” I was at work the other day and I asked one of my coworkers “Do you like to read?” She said yes-so I gave her a business card with my book information she sees that it’s a romance novel. She goes “OH! Well, um I don’t read romance books because the rich handsome hero always picks the model or the beautiful woman, but not someone that looks like me.” I was ...
