April 1 today, a new month. How to describe March 2020? It started as expected, as planned for – an exciting month! Daughter-in-law Janna was in town from out west for a short visit. My new book was edited in January, and in February it was getting illustrations and cover art finished and finally it … More My First Covid19 Month

I’ve also engaged my professional artist to do a real cover, which I promise to unveil in the coming months, before release. I thought … More It’s Here : 2020 and New Book
It’s that time again – another calendar year is ending. 2019. 2020 on the way. It sounds futuristic, like a date from one of the sci-fi novels I loved in my youth, and still like to read, although I’ve been on quite the historical fiction kick lately. Here’s the list this year: Worthy Brown’s Daughter … More Reading List 2019
If you’re my FB friend or follow this blog, you already know some things about me. I’m a retired IT consultant. A new author. But this year, I became a grandmother. I didn’t know how wonderful it would feel, how much more love could grow in one’s heart, a heart already full with a life’s … More Merry Christmas! New Excerpt.
