The D List

Here's a mystery. Where did March go? Seriously. It's April already. Good news is that that means OCEAN WAVES, the third in the quilting mystery series, is out. Launch party will at Always Quilting in San Mateo on Sunday from noon-4pm. Hope you can be there.

I've been on Facebook several months and have been enjoying the interaction. It's fun to know what other quilters, crafters and writers are up to. I'm even okay with the mundane updates like "I just ate a double cheeseburger for lunch," or "Two birds are fighting outside my window." I don't appreciate the blatant self-promotion ones and find some people need to take a chill pill and stop updating, but I can control those and just enjoy news from those I'm genuinely interested in.

On Facebook, these lists go around. 25 Random Things about Me, or Places I've Been or Books I've Read. I ignore them for the most part, although I love reading others.

I thought it would be fun to do one of these popular lists for Dewey Pellicano, my heroine in the quilting mystery series. Here goes:

The D List.

1. What is your name: Dewey
2. A four Letter Word: Dork (also nickname for Buster)
3. A boy's name: Dino (my first boyfriend, 2nd grade. He had the longest eyelashes allowed on a boy)
4. A girl's Name: Diablo (Cody, the screenwriter for Juno, a favorite movie)
5. An occupation: diamond cutter
6. A color: deep blue (you know who's eyes.)
7. Something you wear: denim (although Buster wears it better)
8. A food: dim sum. (Yum!)
9. Something found in the bathroom: Dog hair. Don't ask.
10. A place: Donner Pass
11. A reason for being late: delay (Vangie tried this one, but she rides a bike to work not BART. Nice try!)
12. Something you shout: Dammit! (Yes, I do. Usually when doing the books at the store)
13. A movie title: Day of the Dead. (Buster talked me into it. But I liked it.)
14. Something you drink: diet Peach Snapple.
15. A musical group: Dead. (Vangie's looking over my shoulder, what else could I say?)
16. An animal: Dingo. (Can you hear Vangie? "A dingo ate my baby." Now she'll be saying that all day.)
17. A street name: D'Anza Blvd.
18. A type of car: Dodge Dart (I listen to Car Talk, too)
19. The title of a song: Delilah (Mom was a big Tom Jones fan)

Tag, you're it!

A mystery with a quilting theme sounds like a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing your "D" List.

What an interesting way to help define (D!) a character. Hmmm. Thanks, Terri, and good luck with the launch.

I'm excited to hear you have a third quilting mystery out. I've read the first two and enjoyed them a lot. I've also passed along your name and book titles to a quilting friend who is sharing the news of your books with her quilting buddies. I wish you much, much success in all your writing :)
