I recently had the honor of being interviewed about my life and my novel, The Deep Freeze. The opportunity to share some of my goals and accomplishments was very exciting. My humor also manages to sneak its way in there so feel free to read and laugh!

Have a sci-fi day! ~ TLH

Jomon Anto gave me permission to share these photos that he created using Photoshop. I laughed so hard I cried!
I love to make people smile – especially on a Monday – so here you go:

I call this girl a Drog….Ain’t she purdy?


….and in the monin’ I’m makin’ waffles! Very small waffles – Prairie Donkey


Sorry guys…This one gets the name “Burt”. Don’t ask me why. It just got stuck in my head. Be afraid…Be very afraid!

I’m waiting for this thing to say in a raspy voice Hey! Got a cigarette?


Now this is one bad A dude here. We’ll just call him Fly….or Chuck Norris..Either one will work.


Squog! She’s a keeper. Imagine the money that would be saved on dog food!

The first thing that came to me….after I stopped laughing so hard, was to make a fairy tale story out of them. Their leader? Fly of course, with Drog working as a guard for the princess Squog. Burt tries to kidnap princess Squog and Prairie Donkey is her knight in shining armor…very small armor. 😉

Have a wonderful sci-fi day my friends! ~ TLH

One of my adventures involved starting my own radio show. The Puppy Whisperer is a show designed to help dog owners with some of the more difficult times in a dog’s life. From tricks like “how to train your dog to get you a beer” to “potty training” – Each episode offers free tips to guide you into a happier life with your four-legged friend. It was another form of writing for me, but also a way to fill the need to help others. This happens to be one of the more popular shows lol!
Listen to

Here is Daisy after she just learned the trick at 5 months old:

Here is Buster after the trick had been perfected:

So this picture kind of describes what my thumb feels like….I really am a complete goofball. So I was doing dished and used my thumb nail to scrape of a noodle that was stuck to the bottom of the pan right? Well, that was dumb. The noodle came off alright. Right in between my thumb nail about half way through! Something so stupid and I woke up in the middle of the night with a throbbing thumb. I carried a wash cloth and an ice-cube to bed and that helped me get back to sleep. This morning I tried epsom salt. I still have spaghetti up in my nail so I was hoping to draw it out. I tried to take a close up picture of my nail and that was a complete fail! 

The kicker is, I just finished finals and have a few free days to write……Stupid spaghetti! Stupid dishes! Stupid Tammy trying to use my own stupid nail to scrape stupid noodles off a stupid pot! So with that said, I am just glad it was not a headache. I will take a chainsaw to my leg before a migraine any day! A noodle in my nail is not so bad:-p

Have a sci-fi day everyone! TLH

I discovered this site from a friend on Google+ and thought it was cool. You draw a stick man and watch him come to life with interactions throughout the video. If you’re bored give it a try. I laughed pretty hard during the whole thing:-)

Here is a picture of my actual stick man. Aren’t I quite the artist? lol!

Never a dull moment in our lives…that’s for sure! Nathan looked at me yesterday and said; “Your next blog should be The ‘Write’ Way to Spend the Weekend”…so here it is. He is right because we always have something going on that could be shared so you all can laugh with (or at) us;-) As long as you laugh…I’m good. lol!

So what did we do? Hmmm. Well, it started out with the usual – dinner and video game play. 2 systems, 2 TV’s, online playing Two Worlds II together. I play a warrior (I think). I have a big giant sword and lots of armor so whatever that is. Nathan is playing a mage. He is all decked out in some weird-looking robe and a wizard hat casting spells as we venture through the game. I favor the heal spell the best since I really suck at this stuff and he can heal me….all the time. He also summons weird-looking creatures. They get in the way and Nathan laughs at me because I am attacking them instead of the bad guys. Yeah, you have to see it to understand.


We play together because we enjoy doing things together. It doesn’t matter if I am not that good or he is not that interested. It is the time we are together and how we spend that time.

We watched the movie Benchwarmers. I never watched it and Nathan insisted I see it. HAHAHAHAHA! I am so glad he did because I laughed and laughed…yet appreciated the message it had in there about bullying. That movie should be re-released with all the crap that’s going on now. John Heder is too funny in it!

Wal-Mart trip!! Woohoo! That is a treat around here. We are 30 minutes from any Wal-mart so we only go about once a month. Can you imagine? Once a month! lol! We headed on over to the Wal-Mart in Murphy, NC (we do have options…3 actually lol). We went to the vision center and left without buying a thing. How does that happen? (Finding out how much new glasses were, that’s how!)

Did somebody say Home Depot? Well now, things are getting way out of hand here. Our weekend is heatin’ up isn’t it? lol! Our floor is falling out from under our bed. Yeah, great job to the person that designed this house. They deserve the “I’m an idiot” award. Visuals please….We’ve went through every scenario and they are not pretty so off to throw more money away. Woohoo! $30 worth of plywood and we were back in business…..or were we?

Rotten floor = moisture; Moisture = mold; Huge king sized log bed = wood; Moisture + wood = HOLY CRAP THAT STINKS!

Yep – we had to pull the entire bed apart, take it outside, cut 6 inches off the bottoms of each leg…Now I don’t have to jump to get in bed thank you very much (which should bring to mind a visual of the rotten floor giving way), seal the feet so it doesn’t happen again and put 2 coats of paint on the whole bed frame…all while dealing with gnats all over the place. Now doesn’t that sound like fun? Well, to these two crazy people it was! We are creating memories every day…and unique ones at that.

My husband, my best friend, my hero:-)

The fireplace was roarin’, hot chocolate was brewin’ and the couch awaited us for cuddle time;-)

Happy Monday everyone!

Have a sci-fi day! TLH

for all of my Monday haters…Here are some pictures to cheer you up;-)

Have a sci-fi week everyone! TLH

I don’t know how many times I’ve watched people fall into the same old routine. You know? The one that everybody thinks is “right for society”. I am NOT one of them. I fall into the “I do what I want” category. Stubborn? Yes. Happy with my choices? Yes. Can you say that about yourself? There seems to be an order that is followed in society to be “in” with the rest of the crowd. I see neighbors fighting back and forth over who has the best lawn ornaments or people acting all serious because humor is “immature”. What about the type of car we drive or the clothes we wear? If you think about it….who is in charge of these decisions anyway? I know I sure do not want someone picking out my outfit for the day or deciding what my attitude should be at any given moment. I know what is morally correct and I know right from wrong so I make my own decisions based on that. The decisions that make ME happy. That means I am going to continue to be my goofy self….even as a professional writer and accountant. No I am not going to go to work in a clown suit but it sure would make the accounting world a lot more interesting wouldn’t it? HA! I also choose to laugh over watching the news and all the sad stuff. I get too mushy as it is. I am just filling the “fun” category. I will leave the rest to those who can endure such painful information.

 I also enjoy being inspired. This is one of my favorites that I pass on to others as I see fit. It is a great read for anyone struggling with ANYTHING. It is presented in such a way that anyone can get a grasp on what is being said. My favorite part is the explanation of power and choice. He explains how we have the power to choose: Choose happiness, not sadness. Choose to give, not take. Choose to laugh, not cry….and so on. It also describes how wonderful the human body is, which most of us take for granted. I like the way it is described in the book. It cheered me up and that’s what counts. I hope you find your “Write” Thing….and find your happiness:-)
