My Reverse Bucket List

BaconBunny

I don’t remember where I saw this idea. But I thought it was brilliant, the idea of writing a reverse bucket list. Things I’ve already crossed off what would be a bucket list item.

  1. Meeting my birth family.
  2. Publishing a novel.
  3. A dog named Bacon (this was actually on a bucket list I wrote about fifteen years ago.)
  4. See the world.
  5. Learn a new language. In the interest of full disclosure, I learned it—and have now forgotten it. Note to self: practice is important.
  6. Attend a book signing.
  7. Meet a celebrity.
  8. Learn a new instrument.
  9. Make profiteroles (they were fucking amazing). IMG_20181013_154609072_HDR - Copy
  10. Meet my publisher & editor (they live in Australia.)

What’s on your reverse bucket list? What’s something you’ve accomplished?

  10. Collide by Rachel Platten

What are you listening to at the moment?

These are a few of my favourite things.

I thought I’d share a few of my favourite parts, moments, or things about my upcoming release At War with a Broken Heart.

They aren’t *spoilers* necessarily, but I’m not giving context either. I’m just sharing. Once you read it, you’ll understand.

  1. Fox. Rabbit. Rabbit. Fox.
  2. Fie’s mum. She’s brilliant.
  3. Haggard.
  4. Bideford. It’s a lovely, lovely place. You should definitely visit if you ever have the chance.
  5. MacFluff.

Oh, and Coffee First.

Definitely, Coffee First.

Review: The Unexpected Santa

“The Unexpected Santa is a terrific Christmas prelude for all fans and readers of Dahlia Donovan’s The Sin Bin series.  It’s that delicious taste of what’s to come, combined with the sweetness and joy of the holiday season when the twins come into the picture.” 4.5 stars from Melanie M. at Scattered Thoughts & Rogue Words
