Sharing this stunning photo Boomerang Boy took at the end of a day on the quail plantation he works at in Southwest Georgia. This is Fred, one of the English cockers who are used to retrieve quail. He’s on one of the plantation’s mule-drawn wagons. #autumn #quailhunting #gardenandgun #southernoutdoors ...

My friendship with @lisascottoline has lasted waaaay longer than any of her multiple marriages, so it is appropriate to receive her newest upcoming historic fiction #loyaltynovel. Which has something to do with Italy and the Mafia, and I’m trying not to view her somewhat sinister note with trepidation..but she also included some delish limoncello cookies which I plan to devour along with Loyalty, which is out March 28. #bookishfriends #evileye #italiangirl #historicalfiction #loyaltynovel ...

My phone served me up this memory from ten years ago today. Sue Grafton was a legend, an inspiration and the first person who told me, at the writing workshop where she was my teacher, “you can do this. You will be published.” Three months later, I had my first book contract, for Every Crooked Nanny, which she graciously agreed to blurb. I used to meet up with her whenever she came to Atlanta on book tour, and sometimes, we’d go to dinner after. Remembering her today is a nice way to start another deadline day. #mysterywriter #authorsofinstagrsm ...

It’s D-time. Dreadline, er, deadline time. (Technically deadline was 2 months ago, but #kneereplacement) so I’m locked away in the Squirrel’s Nest, with my Trader Joe’s peppermint tea (thanks @jamestfarmer) my red currant candle, and my story. Please send finishing the book thought & prayers. #authorsofinstagram #dreadline #christmasbooks #squirrelsnest ...

It’s never too late for a Monday mood brightener so here’s a helping of puppy porn courtesy of Tater, our English setter puppy. He’s sleeping through the night—courtesy of a thrift store stuffed animal who joins him on his crate each night. Mama Dog is a lifesaver! #puppyporn #settersofinstagram #birddogs ...

Election night in Georgia had me so stressed—but @claysniderinteriors came over and we drank wine and ate @callieshotlittlebiscuit pimento cheese, and we (mostly him) crafted this wreath from some of my hoarded blue and white stuff—inspired by the beautiful plate wreaths I spotted from @tortoiseandharevintage. We used a cheap plastic wreath and wired the plates (with plate hangers on them) onto the wreath. We don’t really decorate for the holidays until after Thanksgiving, but this was a fun stress-buster. #blueandwhiteforever #vintagestyle #holidayhoarder #ievenvoteblue ...
