Tessa Tagged Me!

Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

OK - 8 Random Facts/Habits About Me:

1. Like Tessa, I love the beach - this is me on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

2. I won't be making my annual trip to the Outer Banks this May because my daughter's getting married - so I'm totally envious of Tessa, but looking forward to my daughter's big day.

3. I used to sing in a women's barbershop chorus - I was even in a barbershop quartet!

4. I love to sit around a campfire - especially if s'mores are involved.

5. I love lighthouses - a major attraction (besides the beaches) of the Outer Banks.

6. I love to drive my Sebring convertible - now if it would just get warm enough to put the top down!

7. I enjoy a glass of White Zinfandel in the evening.

8. Right now I'm reading Tawny Weber's debut Blaze - Double Dare.

I heard the BEST news today! My friend Gemma Halliday's double RITA nominated novel, Spying in High Heels, is in development for a television series on the USA Network!!! It’s currently one of five new shows being developed for their fall 2007/2008 season.Spying in High Heels follows shoe designer Maddie Springer, who in an effort to track down her missing boyfriend, realizes that her knack for fashion also serves another purpose: it makes her a great detective. Maddie's uniquely female perspective helps her pick up clues, using her designer's eye to discern tell tale shapes, colors and patterns, among other things. Along with her best friend Dana, an out-of-work actress, Maddie decides to open a detective agency operating out of her stepfather's hair salon.Not all shows in development make it to the air, but this one should! If you want to see Maddie and Ramirez on the small screen, write to the USA Network and tell them you heard about SPYING IN HIGH HEELS and can’t wait to watch it. Or, if you’ve read the book and liked it, tell them that, too! Contact the programming department at the USA Network:feedback@usanetwork.comIn the meantime, read up on Gemma's books, including Undercover in High Heels & Killer in High Heels.
