Who is DeLynne?

And where, oh where, could she be? My lovely co-blogger has gone missing and I'm considering issuing an APB. Just kidding! DeLynne hasn't abandoned Mrs. BG... she has family from Texas visiting for three weeks. Living in Australia means she doesn't see family very often, so she is absolutely thrilled. How do I know this? From DeLynne's Facebook status updates. Oh, and the photos from Heron Island and the Great Barrier Reef are stunning. I say we all pack up and go visit DeLynne!

It recently came to my attention that there may still be confusion among our readers regarding who the players are here at Mrs. BG. Some readers did get us mixed up in the beginning but no one has mentioned it in so long, that I had forgotten about it. But when I met Kathy from The Literary Amnesiac in real life one of the first things she asked was: Who is DeLynne? She is in Australia, right? Are you sisters?

So let me explain: DeLynne and I are not related; we have just been friends for thirty years. We met at age thirteen and are both native Texans. DeLynne has lived in Australia for the last twenty years.

Even though we are not sisters, we do share a psychic bond of sorts. So many times in high school with absolutely no planning, both of us would arrive at school wearing identical outfits... seriously. Lots of weird incidents have happened over the years but one of the weirdest happened just this week. DeLynne emailed me with an idea for a new blog feature. Freaked me plumb out!! I had just been developing the same idea. Completely independent of each other, we were even considering the same title for the feature! Now is that far out or what!

By the way, the new feature is not biblio-blooper. The new one will be a cozy yet adventurous feature and all will be revealed soon.

Also, if you ever have any questions for either of us, don't stay in the dark, just ask!


  1. Hey Lesa, Kathy and DeLynne,

    Thanks for the introduction. Now I'm not confused!

    I'm thrilled that one of you is here, in Australia. I might get to meet DeLynne one day - although we do live a few thousand kilometres apart.

  2. Hi, Amanda! Just got back from Tangalooma and tucked the kids into bed. We are on the Sunshine Coast. Where are you?

  3. And Lesa, don't forget the time we tried to convince our classmates that we were cousins! They saw similarities way back then. We do have some freaky coincidences, that's for sure. I've been writing up a storm, but unable to post because of island internet connections, so watch this space!

  4. Oh yes, I remember most of our crazy hijinks! So happy you are back in the blogosphere-- I've missed your posts!

  5. I figured you all were friends. The cohesiveness of Cozy Nook tells me this, but the story behind the confirmation is great to know.

    And you know...there's gettin' to be a little bit of mystery going on here too... the note in the book, now this... and the best part is, I'm gettin' a good vibe about it all!!!

    Looking forward to the new blog. I'm now excited!
