Over the years I have found that if I have a large purse, I end up filling it with stuff I don’t need to carry. On the other hand, I can’t get by with one of those tiny bags that are little more than wallets.
This one suits me. It has compartments so I can organize what goes where. It has an interior pocket that just fits my cell phone, and an exterior pocket that just holds my wallet. There’s a built-in clip where I attached a spare house key. The strap is long enough I can wear the purse cross-body, which helps negate the weight of it. The brown color is good—dark enough to go with anything. Also, and this is critical, it’s just big enough to fit my Kindle when I want to bring it with me. Perfect!
ALIEN BONDS is the story of two very different people from two very different species and cultures, a sort of AVATAR combined with PRIDE & PREJUDICE. Industrial chemist Dina Bellaire travels all the way to the planet Wakanreo to advance her career. She knows Wakanreans mate solely from pheromone compatibility, but she doesn’t expect this circumstance to apply to her. Her carefully planned life goes up in flames the second she meets Kuaron Du, a Wakanrean who makes his living singing ancient songs in a dead language. Both of them know they can’t go back to the way they were before they met. They just have to convince the rest of the universe that what happened to them is real.

Answer these questions:
Red, White or Blue? Red! I look good in red.
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter? Spring, because it comes just when winter is getting me down.

Coffee, Tea, Champagne? Coffee, because while I like the others, I can’t live without coffee.
Country music or Michael Buble? Neither. I’m stuck in the 70s, musically. Give me John Denver or Simon & Garfunkel.
