I moved into my house seven years ago. One of the “perks” of living here is my having lights everywhere. Big deal, you say? I would’ve agreed a few years ago, but since I’ve reached a certain level of maturity, I’ve come to appreciate the extra brightness all over.

Every bedroom closet has a fixture. The kitchen? Recessed, under the counter, stove, pantry—all blessed with a hundred watt plus illumination. But the “highlight” of my lighting? My bathroom shower stall. With the added glow, I don’t mix up my shampoo and conditioner, and I’m less likely to miss a spot when shaving my legs, among other things.

Recently, disaster struck. The shower bulb burned out. Not a big deal. Except, I can’t get the cover off so I can change it. I’m assuming the location is the reason for the difficulty, so I get it. But needing to call in Superman to remove a six inch cap is a little much.

For now I shower without my precious light, leaving all possible hindrances to fate as I wait for the man of steel to arrive.


About Debra Jupe

Hi, I’m Debra and I write romantic/suspense novels, with a bit of steam and a lot of fun. Creating stories is my passion. My favorite days are when I can tune out the universe, huddle over my laptop, and let my imagination go wild. More of my loves My kids-I am the proud mom of two. Son, Stephen and daughter, Hannah. I’m also a proud mother-in-law to Astrid and Ryan. I’m a huge animal lover and am “mom” to a houseful of adopted fur-babies. Animals know, when they show up at my house, they have a forever home. Texas-I’m a lifetime Texan. Born in Waco, I grew up in a small town, south of the city. In my early 20’s, I left and lived in different areas within the state. Twenty-eight years later, I happily returned home. I hope to have one more move in me. My dream is to live by the ocean, sit on the deck with a glass of wine and write. Bucket List accomplishments-In my 40’s, I did something I’d always wanted to do, which was return to school and further my education. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in 2011. My day job is working in the education system, teaching special needs children. Inspiration-Growing plants in my flower beds, painting, photography, travel (love the beach), I was born to shop-now if I just had the money, and I can be easily bribed with a tasty meal of Mexican food. Oh yeah, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Writing-I received my first publishing contract with The Wild Rose Press in 2013, and my initial release debuted in September the same year. I’m an active member of the Central Texas Romance Writers of America Chapter, and I serve as secretary of the group.

    A light in the shower give new meaning to Hemingway’s clean, well-lighted place, but I don’t believe he contemplated a Superman there, either. Good luck!
