This is where I goof around when I’m not writing. I write for adults and kids, with several manuscripts in various stages of readiness.
My newest mysteries are BANANA BAMBOOZLE (#1) and MARSHMALLOW MAYHEM (#2) in the Dunne Diehl cozy series.

I’m working on …
• another funny cozy mystery series for adults
• a funny middle grade time travel series
• a funny young adult novel with a synesthetic main character in the marching band
… are you sensing a theme here? I don’t take myself too seriously, but I am serious about my writing. I’m working hard to whip all my WIPs (Works in Progress) into something entertaining to read. I laugh when I write, so I’m hoping people will laugh when they read.
Feel free to poke around in here while you’re hiding from your boss or your kids or your To Do list. Treat BeckyLand as a welcome distraction from stuff you should be doing but don’t want to. That’s usually why I’m here, too. Read my bio and see which words I hate. Take a look at my blog, I’m Just Sayin. I write there haphazardly about anything that strikes my fancy — writing and publishing, marching band, synesthesia, my adventures as a Navy Mom, and my favorite category “goofy stuff.” I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it … when I feel like I can take time away from my “regular” writing. The blog sidebar also has some amusing links. If you can’t find something to laugh at there, then I can only assume your funny bone is on the fritz. And take a look at my store Lazy Squirrel Designs where I have funny sayings plastered on t-shirts, mugs, baby clothes, aprons and a bunch of other stuff. It tickles me to create designs there. Here’s the page where I explain how you can customize any of the t-shirts that strike your fancy.
I’ve also started making purses from hardcover books. Here’s my Etsy store.
Before you leave, presumably to return to the less silly, more productive part of your day, be sure to sign up for my So Seldom It’s Shameful newsletter. It’s where I announce freebies and special deals nobody else hears about. It’s also where you can win fabulous prizes. Every time I get another 100 new subscribers, I have a random drawing. The longer you’re on it and the more people you arm-twist to sign up, the more chances you have to win. Oh, yeah, and I get more potential readers. Win-win, baby. That’s the name of the game!
Thanks for visiting … and remember, a day without laughter is like a day without someone posting a funny cat video. It simply shouldn’t happen.
