Backlist Bonus: Dance Over Me

Backlist Bonus: Dance Over Me

Once upon a time, I used to dance around in my bedroom. Okay, I was in elementary school. And I had a four-poster-canopy bed with yellow (why?? I hate yellow!) bedding crammed into my small room in our trailer house. And since we lived up in the mountains at the time, about the only music I could get on the radio was the classical station. But just imagine a girl with romantic daydreams spinning oh-so-gracefully

Dance Over Me – Reviews Galore

Can I just say that last week was a blessing? Dance Over Me took a long time to find publication–like almost six years after I wrote it–but I have to believe it came at just the right time. Especially when I’ve spent time reading the first reviews and hearing from other readers how the story touched a place deep in their heart (including one woman who shared about being reunited with her birth mother). If

Dance Over Me – Opening Day

At long last, the curtain is rising and it’s opening day for Dance Over Me…and there’s a lot going on over at my Facebook Page. In fact, the main character from the novel, Danielle Lefontaine, is taking over for a few days! She’ll be giving backstage tours, introducing other members of the cast, and even sharing a few videos from The Wardrobe’s first show, 42nd Street. I’ll try to circle back here and embed some of

Dance Over Me – Meet Alex Sheridan

Welcome to The Wardrobe Dinner Theatre. As we count down toward Opening Day, today we’d like to introduce you to a member of the Sheridan family. Alex is a master at the trumpet and also directs the band. Let’s welcome this talented young man to center stage for a few minutes. Thanks. I don’t usually get the spotlight. In fact, the band often feels invisible, probably because our orchestra pit is located underneath the main

Dance Over Me – Meet Danielle Lefontaine

The Wardrobe Dinner Theatre is happy to introduce one of the newest members of the cast, Danielle Lefontaine.

As part of the ensemble in our opening show—42nd Street—prepare to be amazed by the rhythm of her dancing feet. Join me in giving a warm Wardrobe welcome to the multi-talented Danielle. Please,

Dance Over Me – Welcome to The Wardrobe

Dance Over Me – Welcome to The Wardrobe

Welcome to The Wardrobe Dinner Theatre. Owned and operated by the Sheridan family, this local business took their name from the wardrobe “character” in the C.S. Lewis book The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe as a place where adventuresome souls could step into a different world. Since a wardrobe is also a fancy name for a type of closet for clothes, the fact there is a backstage dressing room filled with costumes certainly applies

Dance Over Me: The Inspiration

Dance Over Me: The Inspiration

Did you know I’ve got a tattered folder filled with scribbled story ideas? Some came after being awakened from a vivid dream while others grew from a day dream about some interesting thing I’d seen out the car window. All are just nuggets of scenes or loose plots and most may never grow beyond those yellowing scraps of paper. However, a lucky few ideas continue to grow in my subconscious into something bigger, like the

Behind the Scenes: The Power of Great Editing

I have a secret weapon. While it’s true I’m the one who dreams up characters, weaves together plot threads, writes 80,000 words, and then rewrites most of them multiple times, my story is not nearly ready until it’s spent time in the hands of my amazing editors. Since I’ve recently finished the editing process for my next novel Dance Over Me (releasing in September), I’ve got plenty of examples of my secret weapon of great
