1. I’ve been married longer than I’ve been single... and it’s been to the same guy I started dating in the summer of my junior year of high school. I won’t say how long ago that was though, because I want you think I’m younger than I really am.
2. I have a dish fetish. I own ten different sets of dishes and continually lust over more every time I walk through houseware departments. In fact, my hubby won’t let me go into the dish department when he shops with me. I could describe the dishes for you, but just writing down the fact that I own so many seems outrageous.
3. I’m a crafty person. I can knit, crochet, quilt, draw, sew (which has been recently limited to mending my daughter’s clothes—guess I need to teach her how to sew), and I dabble in paper crafts (card making, card recycling crafts). I haven’t taken up sculpture, weaving, or pottery yet, and probably won’t unless we get a bigger house and I learn how to live without any sleep.
4. I collect nativities. I currently have 23 different nativities, not including paper ones, and I’m working on making a knitted nativity right now. I especially like different themed nativities like southwest, Celtic (my latest addition—they look like Stonehenge boulders with faces carved in them), Eskimos, Native American figures and so on.
5. I’m techno challenged and not allowed to touch the hubby’s computer because I crash things. I’ve crashed twice as many computers and phones than the normal person. I always say it’s my electric personality. Hey, it makes me seem less clutzy and more mysterious. :-) That’s a good thing, right?
What about you? What’s something no one would guess about you?
Enjoy an excerpt from The Nun and the Narc:
“Why don’t you tell me, Miss . . . whoever you are?”About the Author:
“Margaret Mary O’Connor. Sis—“ Her introduction changed into a scream. “Look out!”
Jed’s head whipped around just as the car plowed through a market stand of live chickens. Poultry, wooden cages, and feathers scattered over the car. An angry hen dropped through the car’s open sunroof, squawking and flapping in front of Jed, beating his head with its wings.
Margaret reached over, grabbed the bird, and threw it back out the sunroof opening. But it was too late. The car glanced off an adobe wall into a second market stand and careened toward another building. Jed jammed on the brakes. The car spun three hundred and sixty degrees before screeching to a stop.
The impact threw Margaret sideways against the passenger window. She hit her head on the glass, the blow blinding her for a second. Jed’s body slammed into the steering wheel setting off the horn. The wail echoed in Margaret’s head as she struggled to remain conscious. Warmth trickled down the side of her head. Margaret managed to focus her eyes as the noise stopped. Two Jeds leaned toward her, in slow motion. She blinked to clear her vision.
“You all right?” he asked.
“I think so.” Something warm and sticky seeped down her face. She reached up and wiped her temple. “I’m bleeding,” she said as she stared at her fingers. The words sounded slurred. At the sight of the blood on her fingers, her stomach rolled.
Her debut inspiration romantic suspense, The Nun and the Narc, from Soul Mate Publishing was an ACFW Genesis Finalist and is a 2013 EPIC finalist.

Nuns shouldn’t look, talk, act, or kiss like Sister Margaret Mary O’Connor—at least that’s what Jed Bond thinks. She hampers his escape plans with her compulsiveness and compassion and in the process makes Jed question his own beliefs. After years of walling up his emotions in an attempt to become the best agent possible, Sister Margaret is crumbling Jed’s defenses and opening his heart. To lure her away from the church would be unforgivable—to lose her unbearable.
Buy the book at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
