1.) I was hit by a train while a passenger in a car and walked away with just bruises.
2.) I was the Key Designer on patented, low-income homes made out of retired shipping containers that the 'Afghanistan World Foundation' want to use for their 'Rebuilding Afghanistan' project (see final credits):
3.) I've left my body.
4.) I haven't worked a 9 to 5 job since the mid 90's.
5.) I only need to workout twice a week to maintain my physique.
6.) I wept like a baby during the movie 'My Girl' back in 1991 when the little girl 'Vada' finally came downstairs and into Macaulay Culkin's wake (then again, so did everyone else in the entire movie theater ;)):
7.) The 1st book I ever read was 'Old Man and the Sea' in middle school. The 2nd book was 'Jurassic Park' (1993) and thought it would make the best movie! Two weeks later the previews for the movie came out.
8.) I only sleep about 5 hours. This has been my entire life, and because I sleep in a DEEP sleep, which allows me to get the proper rest needed compared to most who toss and turn all night, who wake up from common sounds, while I'll sleep sound in a tent outside during a category 5 hurricane 
9.) My father's birthday (January 8th) is the same as Elvis Presley's birthday and my mother's birthday (May 24th) is the same as his wife, Priscilla Presley's birthday.
10.) My birthday (March 15th) is the same as Fabio's birthday... but NOT the same year

When a ruthless cattle baron is determined to do anything to get his hands on Sadie Buchanan's ranch, including running off her ranch hands and killing her cattle, she hires the infamous gunslinger Jake Wagner to protect her property. Despite the fact that they butt heads right from the start, Sadie is helplessly drawn to the ruggedly handsome cowboy, even when he warms her bottom repeatedly for her willful and sometimes reckless behavior. But all the cards are put on the table when Sadie bets the cattle baron that she, Jake and her small band of cowpokes can get more cattle to market than anyone in their right mind would attempt. It's all or nothing for Sadie, her ranch and the dangerous cowboy she's fallen for hard.

  3. Hi Jenni-

    Thanks for featuring me today with Jimmy. Jimmy's images are on eleven of my covers. What I found unusual about using Jimmy's image is that he looks like different men in different images, depending on pose and lighting, so the heroes on the 6 covers in my Dancing Moon Ranch series actually look like different men. Two of the heroes are identical twins, which helps, and the others are sons, which explains some similarities, but the only one who is not related really doesn't look like Jimmy. I'm my own cover artist so I can cut and paste and merge images as I need to. Like Jimmy, I also sleep only five hours a night and have been doing that for as far back as I can remember. There just aren't enough hours in the day otherwise. Here's hoping everyone has a joyful Christmas.

  4. Patricia, thank you so much for joining us. It is a pleasure having you here along with Jimmy. Say, what is that interesting picture you have as your avatar? Looks like some kind if dome.

  5. Hello, thanks for the giveaway! I love everything about the Christmas holiday!

  6. Yep, that's a dome all right. My gmail address is for my one and only non-fiction book, which is entitled "The Biodome Garden Book." It's about a doomed, passive solar greenhouse I designed and developed in the 1980s. The book's been so successful that I have a backlog of almost 200 people who now want a dome for the circular bases they're prepared to build if they can locate a dome, which they won't because there are no 16' fiberglass domes on the market. So now I'm manufacturing those, along with fiberglass fish tanks, biofilters and circular vegetable rings. It's all on my other website at if there are any organic food nuts like me among your bloggers.

  7. my favorite part of the holidays is the 2 weeks I get off with pay!

  8. Patricia, So that's how you get hunky men on your covers! And, what a cool way to cross-promote by using your biodome book cover for your avatar. I've so much to learn from you!

  9. Judith, thanks for the compliment, but it's out of necessity that my biodome avatar's used here, and the fact that I'm a rank amateur at this blogging thing. At least I'm not responding as Anonymous today, like I did on your blog. Ugh! I'm learning.

  10. Jimmy Thomas is my fav cover model..yum ! He is also really nice also.

    I adore Paige's books ! Enjoyed the post :)

    Merry Christmas !

  11. I'm waiting to see a new dome go up on your property, Pat. And congratulations on your ability to design covers from similar images and make them different.


  12. I recognize Jimmy on a cover in a heartbeat. Websites, too. He definitely is the most popular cover model. :)
