the latest news

I'm writing this on the last day of April. Sheesh, it's been a wait for the forsythia to bloom and the crocuses to push their little heads up. I finally opened up my screen porch--love, love, love writing out there! This self-publishing thing is a blast. Not trying to fit in that round hole is very freeing and energizing and scary and fun. One thing is certain, it's all me and I love that! I'm about to enter the formatting phase of my first self-publication. Yikes, that's where the scary comes in. I hope I remember to breathe.

Below is my cover for my novella. Don't you love it? The artist is Jo from Glass Slipper WebDesign. Such talent! I'm lucky to have found her. Check out her cover art at

Check back soon and I'll let you know how the formatting is going.
