First baby steps

You can blame Terry aka Ciar Cullen for this first post. She's personally whipping myself into shape so I have a presence out here in the big wide world of the Internet. I'm not sure how a blog works or what to put out here but I'm giving it a go and plan to post snippets and ideas as I go.

To tell you a bit about myself. I'm a midwest girl with two of the most beautiful, gorgeous, sweetest kids in the Universe (they're prime-time hugging champs) and a husband to die for (he worships the ground I walk on... or is that him begging for dinner?).

No matter, love 'em all and am so glad my son had figured out the microwave because I'm a little obsessed over my first love - the written word. I love to read it and write it. And currently, I'm writing a steamy little story about a high powered business-man, Collin, falling in love with his IT security expert, Justine, even as she secretly is leading the life as a hacker to infiltrate and help execute a sting operation.

Justine's sexy and confident. The intellectual equal to Collin who built and runs his cutting edge hardware and software company MTI. The board room is already sizzling hot and they haven't even touched yet.

As for me, I can't wait to see what happens. And I'm going to write it all down. Maybe I'll give you a few sneak peeks on this blog.

Oh, and before I forget and before one of many WONDERFUL, TALENTED Divas kick my butt, there's a special contest we're going to be running starting soon. My friends and I are giving away special prizes if you find the ornaments and other "surprises" on our sites.

Ciar!!!! I'm hoping you're watching... because here I am. In all my naked glory - ok... I'm just feeling a little exposed but I'm really not naked - still those dirty thoughts. Really, well I never... LOL.

OK. So that's it. I hope to get a totally glorified masterpiece of a pic on here soon. Photoshop is such a wonderful friend :> Until I figure all this out and get on a schedule, see you soon.

Welcome to the land of blogging, April!!

But please open your responses to "Name / URL". My blog is hosted on my website, so I don't fit in your categories. Sigh. (The blogger account I signed under is no longer active.)
