Saved by the muse

Buenos Thursday! I have returned at last! For those who don’t know me, I’m Ezmerelda, a Guatemalan worry doll currently enslaved as Shannon’s muse.

Right now she is staggering around the neighborhood in her pajamas, walking her dog, and their matching crazy bedhead hairstyles are probably the talk of the entire town. Mini, who no doubt is named after my fabulous car, is wearing her new pink harness. You should have seen Shannon in PetSmart, ooohing and aaahing over

Pleading with the muse

Dear Ezmerelda,

I know a muse is supposed to be a fickle and capricious being, but now’s not really a good time for you to uphold those old stereotypes. Right now I need you to roll up those sleeves and focus, even though…

Ezmerelda's Week in Review 7.6

Buenos Friday! Did you miss me? Shannon has been keeping me very busy working on our secret project and Becoming Miss Becky and the third Devlin Group book. But as you can see, there is always time for frolicking at sunset with a cowboy.

Wait. Do you hear that? How am I supposed to think with all that racket?

Shan: That’s Gallagher shouting again. He’s still stuck down in that plot hole.

Adam: I could shoot him.

Ez: That would
