The Ink has Dried

September 14, 2016

I’m thrilled to announce I just signed a contract with Beachwalk Press for the publication of my full length novel, Hawk’s Promise. This New Adult Interracial story is a break-through book for me. At 72,000 words, it’s by far the longest novel I’ve written. Let’s hope the majority of those words survive the editing process. […]

September 9, 2016

Temperatures have cooled here and the deciduous trees are beginning to turn color. This photo was taken from the road at the top of our property and shows a volunteer apple that sprang up several years ago, as well as some of the lovely grasses and brush that decorate the roadsides here. I’m taking a […]

Looking Forward

August 26, 2016

We’re having temps in the 90s this week here in the Pacific Northwest, so Autumn feels like it must be months away, not a mere three weeks. After two bouts with cancer, I tend not to want to hurry time along. Every day is precious to me. But I have to admit I’m really looking […]

Love is Love

June 16, 2016

This past weekend, a hate-filled young man took the lives of 49 people in Orlando. I admit I was glued to the television for a whole day, mesmerized. I was trying my best to understand what motivated him, and how anyone could do something so heinous. My first thought was that he must have been […]

Patiently Celebrating

March 24, 2016

Well guys, the big news for me is that my cancer treatment (chemotherapy) has worked. I had a CT scan last week that showed no cancer remaining in my body. You can just imagine me and my family doing the happy dance that day. I even had a couple of glasses of wine to celebrate. […]

Vows of Pain and Passion

February 1, 2016

I don’t read very many historical romances, but I’m anxious to introduce you to Leigh Lee’s excellent medieval story Vows of Pain and Passion. The cover has been freshly re-designed, and isn’t it beautiful! It really seems to capture the essence of this classic love story. Official Blurb:  She refuses to trust…he refuses to love. […]

Perking Along

January 16, 2016

We’re halfway through January now. The weather has warmed up a bit, so we’re getting our usual rain instead of snow. This photo shows the rain this morning outside our computer repair shop in Battle Ground, Washington. I’m already tired of it. I’m a light weight when it comes to wintry weather. I wish I could […]

Here’s to A Fresh New Beginning in 2016

January 7, 2016

Can it really be 2016 already? Christmas paraphernalia has all been packed away, and my family has settled into the “can’t wait for Spring” mode that comes with our cold, dark winter weather. We had our first snowfall in Washington state the other day. I didn’t get a decent picture, but suffice it to say […]
