A Book Is Born!

Saturday, May 21st, 2016 | Gratitude, Joy, The Goddess Diaries | No Comments

After about four years of writing and re-writing and editing and whatnot, I have finally put out APHRODITE’S CHOICE as an e book. I have plans to bring it out in trade paperback as well, but for now, it’s alive. And I am very grateful. Thank you to everyone who has listened to me talk about it ad nauseum and thank you to my friend, author Kris Waldherr, for reading the entire book and for giving me notes on an early draft.

Weekend Fun

Monday, May 9th, 2016 | Gratitude | No Comments



This typewriter suggests a diligence I did not feel this weekend. Once I was done with the day job on Saturday, I left the bank and dove into my weekend. I did not touch the computer once until Sunday evening, so no writing got done at all. But I bought a strawberry plant in a tea cup at Vintage Hendo, I had wonderful meals with friends and enjoyed the end of Blackberry Winter aka the beginning of true summer in the mountains.  I even spent a moment chatting to Mrs. Bitty Bunny, trying to win her over the way I won over her husband. I think it is going to take a little longer before this furry creature trusts me, though she did stay and listen for a minute.

I hope the new week brings each and every one of you joy in abundance.

Family and Joy

Monday, May 2nd, 2016 | Gratitude, Joy | No Comments

My parents came to visit last weekend, and as always, I had a ball visiting with them. We strolled through the Biltmore House and ate our weight in pizza and pasta, and just enjoyed each other’s company.



At the same time, I had lots of excuses to visit and frolic with my friends at Novels and Novelties, where we celebrated Independent Bookstore Day and revealed the store’s new logo which you can view Here

While I missed family and friends I did  not get to see this weekend, like Marianne Nubel and my brother Barry, I had a wonderful time with the family I did see. Friends and loved ones are one of the greatest joys I know.

Now I need to get back to my imaginary family, the characters that live in the stories I’m writing…

Merry Christmas All!
