When Kathryn Falk came to town a few weeks ago and gathered a group of romance writers together, the conversation inevitably turned to vitamins, supplements, health food and organics. I really should have taken notes, but when Kathryn starts telling stories, all I want to do is listen and enjoy. The woman who started Romantic Times magazine as small newspaper over 30 years ago leads a fascinating life, and when she and Michel Hauf and Susan Johnson among others get started on their healthy eating regimen, slugs like me should be pushing the “record” button. But I didn’t. It had been too long since I’d the other women at the table, and girls just wanna have fun at a reunion like that.
So I cam home and opened the door to the vitamin cupboard, and I tried to remember what I’d learned. I mean, people were dropping names of online shops and brands and vitamins A to Z, and I lost track. I should be taking my K with my Q and take this much of this and that with a meal. I have my 7-day pill organizer, and I take what I take all at once. I’m probably flushing most of it down the toilet. I have friends who swear by glucosamine and chondroitin, and friend who say it’s a total waste. (I know it works for dogs and horses.)
So let’s talk supplements. Are you a believer? What are your must-haves? What’s your regimen like, and what does it do for you? I will be taking notes.
It’s been a big publication month for me, so, finally, please bear with me. NIGHT FALLS LIKE SILK and THE PRODIGAL COWBOY are my newest releases. THE LAST GOOD MAN is on sale for $1.99 in e-book for the whole month of September as one of Amazon’s “Top 100 Books Under $3.99”—really exciting to be selected for this a wonderful promotion!
