This has taken me a wee bit longer than planned to continue this conversation about sexy body language. The last two weeks have been busy, lazy, up, down, warm, cold, late, early – a mixture of everything that made my head spin.
Okay, I just HAD to headline it with that word! It sounds so … um … well, you know! But it is not like that. In this specific context I’m referring to us women being very sensitive to touch. When a woman is flirting, she will sensually stroke her throat, neck or thigh. Oh all right, it is kinda like that, but it’s much more appropriate for public places. (more…)

Nay, her foot speaks; her wanton spirits look out
At every joint and motive of her body.” – Shakespeare
Oh, if only we knew all the secrets we revealed with our body language! One of those secrets is our attraction to someone else. Research has only confirmed what we already know – our entire body changes when we are in close proximity of someone we like, are attracted to or want to impress with our sensuality/sexuality.

I’m often asked where I get my stories from and it is always a very difficult question to answer. Goodness. Where to start? I read a lot. I’m a news junkie which means that I read a lot of articles about a lot of different things. I’m also terribly, terribly curious about everything. That again means I read other articles purely because it interests me, even if it’s not news-worthy. All this translates to me having a lot of useless bits of information floating around in my head. When I sit down to start the planning of my books, I suppose some of these bits float in the same direction and form a unit in order to create one complete story. One of these bits that actually played a large role in the initial planning stages of The Gauguin Connection is the story of Leo Nardus.

As much as we would like to claim to be totally honest, it is simply not possible. We all lie – white lies, small lies, innocent lies, protective lies, HUGE lies. It’s part of our social interaction. (more…)
How honest are you? Do you always tell the truth?
Of course not!! The question really is not if you lie, but rather how often. I would most definitely not be telling the truth if I declared myself to be a totally honest person. Of course I lie. We all do. Lies are what polite society is built on. If a potential client at a negotiation meeting asks you “How are you?”, do you really want to tell him that you just walked in on your live-in partner doing the dirty with your best friend? Nope, we lie. We say, “Fine, thank you,” and we even put on a sunshine voice for that. (more…)
