    The life of a writer gets better day by day. I know the high has to stop sometime but for right now it’s a wild ride up hill. I snuck on to twitter and had so many re-tweets of all my links and a lot of response here now on my book blog.  Ok, honestly, I cried! I felt the need to cry from the overwhelming response to my work!  I am so thankful that I overcame my fear and put myself out there. I really think, although it’s social media, I might show my kids. They are still young enough that the…See More

    Signing Books

    The first time I signed books anywhere. It was a pretty successful day- lots of hand shaking and chit chat, handing out info, and even better - book sales. I think the best part was the reaction of the person who won my book in the raffle. She was so happy and excited! Her joy made me ecstatic!See More

    (Cavalier) King Charles Spaniels

     I got my dog several years ago, and people kept telling me that my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was really a King Charles Spaniel (without the Cavalier part).  I did not know the difference between these supposedly two separate breeds.  Since then, I have learned the difference isn't very much except in size and to the…See More

    Well, after nearly exactly 15 months my latest book, THE END TIME is about to be birthed. The cover is complete, the blurb and pitch are complete, and I just sent all my material to Chris O'Byrne at Jetlaunch. Chris is the man who formats my manuscript for ever ereader imaginable and places the book on all the sell sites for me. Like my cover artist, Judy Bullard, I've used these same two people for all my ten published books. This gives my titles and format and consistent look. I advise all…See More
