I’m excited for today’s guest. This past summer I read Pop Travel by Tara Tyler. It was such a fun sci-fi thriller that I couldn’t put down. It had a little bit of everything: romance, action, suspense, and fun. Now she’s releasing Simulation: A Pop Travel Novel. For fans like me it’s fantastic news. Please welcome the fabulous Tara Tyler.
Keep your mind Fresh!
If I lose my mind, you can shoot me. But seriously, I really don’t want to be around if I don’t know what’s going on and other people have to take care of my slowly decaying form. Morbid, but I’m a realist. I see celebs I grew up with and how some of them still got it – if I can stay sharp, then I’ll deal with getting older. It means I still have more to contribute!
So how do we keep from losing our minds??
One way to keep our minds in shape is just like we’re supposed to keep our bodies in shape. EXERCISE! If you don’t use it, you lose it. And I have compiled a list of brain-exercising games to keep our minds fit and productive!
- Classic word puzzles – crosswords, word searches, cryptograms, fill-ins, hangman, mad libs
- Apps – Words w/friends, Wordbrain, Word to Word, Two Birds, Letris, Popwords, What’s the word, Pun of the day
- Board games – Scrabble, Boggle, Taboo, Scattegories, Upwords, Apples to Apples, Mad Gab, Bananagrams, Buzz Word, Balderdash
- TV Game Shows – Wheel of Fortune, $25,000 Pyramid, Catch Phrase, Match Game, Password (they don’t make them like they used to! Yay for GSN!)
I know I left some out – can you think of any good ones?
Taking classes, learning a new language, and READING! All more ways to keep those brainwaves moving and active! What’s your favorite way to keep your noggin in shape?
Thanks for having me over, TB! Now I want to play a game!

In 2082, androids are an essential part of daily life. Some are helpful, some would make better toasters, and some are so human-like they’re creepy. Back in Atlanta, Detective Cooper’s latest client has him searching for her boyfriend who she thinks was replaced by a simulation, an illegal clone android. The guy also happens to be a popular new congressman.
As if the case wasn’t frustrating enough, Cooper keeps crossing paths with his ex, FBI Agent Geri Harper who’s looking for the same guy. As Cooper closes in, Geri is kidnapped. But when she resurfaces in Washington and goes on a killing spree, he knows it isn’t her. Now under suspicion himself, Cooper must find the real Geri to prove her innocence, not to mention hunt down the powerful villain behind it all. Never a dull moment.
SIMULATION delivers more technology, more intense action, more humor, and more, distinct new characters. Come along for the ride.
