The Next One


I have some good news to share today! The first draft of my next novel–tentatively titled The Intruder–is done. There’s lots and lots of work to come, but as the saying goes: you can’t edit a blank page. Now, none of the pages are blank, so I will be able to make them all work together. But it’s good to stop and celebrate just a little, don’t you think?




What are you celebrating today?

    i am celebrating my husband has a new job where he is home everyday. He is a truck driver and he was driving regional and he wasn’t home a lot. I had a stroke last summer and he had to come off the road to to take care of me. With this new job he is home everyday he is still a truck driver. We now walk each morning and it feels good like we use to.
