Weekly Update

Sunday was gorgeous in the 70s, but this morning, schools are cancelled because of an ice storm.

Last week I shared I was going to rearrange my downstairs…and so I did. I love the new arrangement. It’s more open and flows better and allows more natural light. Change is good!

A friend of mine is on a road trip, sending me photos of his adventures. Makes me itchy to go on one myself, so later this week, that’s what I’m doing! I love driving, admiring the beauty of the scenery and finding wildlife. I’m taking the camera, so if I get any decent shots, I’ll post them next week. Who knows, one of them may end up in the San Diego Fair, again.  What do you think about my last accepted entry, “Puppy Love?” (Have I mentioned I love animals?)

This week has been an exciting one for my books. Both received favorable reviews . . . mostly 5-star reviews! The full reviews are posted on my website. Now the cover of Linked Lives is being updated to reflect the new status, Below is a sample photo of what it will be (in a few weeks).


Linked Lives receives 5-star award!

The sun should be out soon, so I need to run! Thanks for reading, enjoy your week and make some happy memories. Until next time . . .


Hi and Welcome to my Blog.

I may be a writer and have a Facebook page and website, but can you believe I’ve never written a blog before? There’s a first time for everything . . . so here goes!

First of all, thank you for coming to my blog. I’m glad your here and I look forward to getting to know you! I’d love for you to comment because that’ll open up a real ‘conversation.’ I’m open to most topics, though my passions are animals, traveling, music and photography. What are yours?

Since I love photography, I’ll share photos (probably a lot of animals and traveling) along with updates of what’s happening with me, both professionally (signings, tours, events, new releases, etc.) as well as personally. I am a writer who lives with my felines in Central Texas overlooking Lake Travis and the hill country. I’ve included a photo of my view, isn’t it gorgeous? The serenity has been instrumental in helping me to write and publish two books recently. I wrote them with the intention to leave the reader feeling better for having read the story and adding to their life in some way. If you’d like, you can find both books on my website.

I’m signing off now to go ‘rearrange’ my living room. I do it for the exercise of moving the piano and large wood entertainment center! 🙂 What do you do for exercise?

Until next time . . .
