Consuelo the Media Princess

Well, Consuelo has made her first appearance at Austin Dog and Cat, with her boy friend Prince! Read all about our Saturday adventure — but please disregard her Girl’s casual attire.

Plus, AD&C, which is the brainchild of my friend Debi Martin (above),  is worth checking out, all of you dog/cat lovers!

La Liz

I can’t quite wrap my mind around the fact that Liz Carpenter has gone on to that great big press room in the sky. She was such a generous soul, who genuinely cared about all kinds of people all over the world. And let’s talk about the best sense of humor of all time.

Her support of Texas writers — no matter whether they were beginners or established — has left a huge legacy. I’m sure I’ll have more on this later, but for now, I’m wondering this: When Liz met St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, I can just hear her lecturing him, “Start with a laugh, Petey!”

Thank you, Liz, for being YOU!

Adios to Richard From Texas, Part 2

Here’s my full tribute to my friend Richard Vogt (a.k.a. Richard From Texas) that appeared at

Adios to Richard From Texas

My friend Richard Vogt, better to know to the world — and fans of Eat, Pray, Love — as Richard From Texas, passed away last week. It’s odd to think that he’s not here, but I know he’s probably loving this next big adventure. As if Oprah wasn’t enough! Here he is with EPL author Elizabeth Gilbert on Oprah in 2006.

I’ll write more on Richard later. Meanwhile, adios, my friend.
