When I was a kid, I used to collect stamps. My mother started me off with an old chocolate box full of stamps that she’d ripped off old envelopes and parcels. My mother never met a stamp she could bear to throw away and I’ve inherited the trait. Although I no longer actively collect stamps, I find myself tearing them off envelopes and chucking them into an old biscuit box. Since hubby and I don’t have children, I have no idea what I’ll do with them. Meantime, my collection keeps growing.
I’ve collected a few other things during my life—one that you’ve probably collected as well is books.I have shelves of non-fiction books, mainly to do with history that I use for research. I also have a collection of my favorite romances, although these days these are more likely to be electronic than paper.
I enjoy cooking and have lots of recipe books and recipes ripped from magazines and ones I’ve discovered online. Evernote (http://www.evernote.com) is the perfect app for snipping online recipes, if you haven’t discovered it yet.
Mr. Munro and I enjoy traveling, and over the years I’ve purchased lots of T-shirts at places we’ve visited. I have T-shirts from Zimbabwe, Alaska, China, Australia, Tonga, Florida Keys, Yellowstone, Nicaragua and Hawaii just to name a few. My favorite writing uniform is jeans and a T-shirt during winter and shorts and a T-shirt during the summer.
Today I thought I’d showcase a few of my favorites:
Tourist Camels from Turkey
Greek Gods from Mykonos, Greece
Turtle and the Shark from American Samoa

Here is my latest release: Biding His Thyme
Book 4 in the Fancy Free series.
Born in the Children of Nature cult, Sorrel “Bitter” Thyme is destined to spend the rest of her life there, but not if she has her way. She’s perfected the dream cream that enhances orgasmic pleasure in those who use it. Now she must approach Fancy Free management with her invention while making sure the cult leader doesn’t learn of her idea and steal Sorrel’s chance of escape.
Jake Ramsey, a Special Air Services soldier on sick leave, agrees to go undercover in the cult to help local police close a case against the leader. Sorrel is his inside contact, a woman who is constantly ridiculed by the other cult members.
The partnership works well and kisses meant to cement their cover take on new possibilities. Jake uncovers secrets, and their loving heats up, passion coalescing into more than friendship. Then Sorrel is tossed into danger. What began as a favor is now deadly serious—-a game Jake must win to keep Sorrel safe.
