Review: Hidden, by Rebecca Zanetti

Malcolm “Mal” West is a recently retired undercover police officer. His last assignment left him physically and mentally battered. Plagued with guilt at having betrayed the closest thing he had to a brother and at the same time proud to have been part of taking down one of the most powerful mafia families in the country, he’s decided to retreat to a quieter life. But moving next door to Pippa Smith was the start of anything but quiet. Pippa has been on the run from a cult leader, Isaac and his followers, known as The Family, for years. She’s learned the art of not getting close to anyone and staying not only under the radar but completely off the grid. Living just…

leave your mark, by aliza licht

I am a fan of Aliza Licht’s alter ego, DKNY PR Girl or @DKNY on Twitter, as well as a follower of her personal success. Through social media, I have come to be a supporter, so I bought and read her book, Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It In Your Career. Rock Social Media. In the midst of all of this, life happens and Saturday, sadly, Beau Biden passed away. He...

rt booklovers convention

So, I have been slightly MIA the last couple of weeks. Not because I haven’t been reading. And not because I don’t have some recipes in my back pocket. It’s because I’ve been spending the last few weeks furiously preparing for the RT Booklovers Convention in Dallas, TX. And it’s here! This is my first convention/conference of this nature and it’s not related to my day job. Already, I’m having a great time! My brother...

wicked (the play)

There is good in Baltimore. There is culture and positivity. While that clearly has not been the focus the past week, it’s important people know that it does exist here. And while I’m not a Baltimore native, I hate for only the negativity to be highlighted when speaking about the city. So… I was pretty sure I was the last person on the eastern seaboard who hadn’t seen the play Wicked. Therefore, a couple of...

pray for baltimore and nepal

For the last 20 years, I’ve called Baltimore home. While I no longer reside within the city limits, I am not far away, and it is therefore with a very heavy heart that I type this. No city deserves what Baltimore is currently enduring. I can only hope and pray that the violence, fires, looting, and riots cease immediately, order is restored, and the city can begin to heal. It’s going to take a...
