8 Great TV Shows that Inspire Me to Write

The Mindy Project
There's romance and humor. But I'm sad about how things went down with Danny. I hope Mindy can find a great new guy. I love Mindy Kaling and admire the fact that she writes and acts in the show.

The Family
It's so dark and disturbing but the way they build suspense keeps me on the edge of my seat. I want to stop watching because the subject matter is so dark, but I can't.

The Blacklist
The suspense, the plot-twists and James Spader keep me watching. Oh, and the guy who plays Tom, he's not bad to look at and he's a bad guy that's easy to love.

The Flash
This show has the appeal of a superhero story but it also has heart and not too much violence. And it's  a show my husband will watch with me, so that's a plus.

The Goldbergs
I was a kid in the eighties and I love how this show gets everything from the time period right, the costumes and the toys like Cabbage Patch dolls make it a nostalgic joy to watch. It's funny and touching and the acting is fantastic.

Modern Family
It's just my kind of funny. And the family drama and humor that abounds makes it a fun to watch. I hope it stays on the air forever! Cam and Mitch are my favorite and their whip smart little girl always has a dead-pan zinger that makes me smile.

The Middle
My husband says I remind him of the mom on that show and my mom says I remind her of Sue, the relentlessly optimistic daughter. Do I find both comparisons mildly insulting? Maybe. But there is so much to laugh about in the life of this family. The themes are pretty universal and the characters all come to life with their specificity. Brick and his head down whispering always get me.

Younger
A forty year old divorced mom passes herself off as 26 in order to get a job in publishing. It's a great premise and fills that Sex in the City void that I've felt for so long. It's chick lit come to life but with an older heroine. I hope it goes for a few more seasons, at least.

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.
