Procrastination is my middle name

Posted by Nancy Carty Lepri on November 25, 2013 at 12:35 PM Comments comments (0)

     Sad to admit, I'm a huge procrastinator when it comes to keeping my blog. It seems that everyday life interfers with my writing in a journalistic style.

     Anyway, I've been busy with editing, reading and reviewing and I found my new love... CROSS FIT!!!!

My reivews.

By looking at my blog, I'm so surprised to see how long it's been since I've last made an entry. :(


To say I've been busy is an understatement. Between editing and illustrating assignments, reading for reviews, working on my own writing and spending time with my family, time has slipped by unnoticed.


I have been c...

"Meeting" Claire Cook

Posted by Nancy Carty Lepri on June 20, 2011 at 12:12 PM Comments comments (0)

I recently had the pleasure of "meeting" Claire Cook. I not only enjoy her writing tremendously, but the fact that we share our love of New England (Massachusetts in particular) gave us a bond.


Claire is a down-to-earth author who just happens to have great literary talent. Reading and reviewing her book Best Staged Plans (the review I wrote for New York Journal of Books is below) proved to be one of the best books I...

If y'all think I've been quiet lately it's because we've been to New England. We first went to Massachusetts, staying with our dear cousins, Lorraine and Randy. The first night we went out to eat in Norfolk with Aunt Connie, cousin Marilyn, and our wonderful nephew, Scott.

I'm back, and here it is September 17! I can't believe that a year-and-a-half ago today I lost my wonderful mom, Emily Carty. Some days it feels like it was just yesterday and other days it feels like she's been gone forever. But, though she's no longer a physical presence in my life, I feel her spirit (any my dad's too) all around me. I was so blessed to have such wonderful parents. The last year of Mom's life, we became very close. She was my best friend a...

I'm back again after a few weeks...weeks that have been busy, I'm happy to say! Since my last post around the time of my birthday, I have been feverishly working on my sequel to "Tiny Angel." I have to admit too, that I've managed to sneak in a few games of Bejeweled...my saving grace, though it can get pretty frustrating as well as hectic.
