On a Personal Note

I can’t believe how quickly the year has flown by! It’s be a fabulous year though! Travel wise we went to Bangkok, New York (I know it’s close, but with RWA being there I got to stay and go see so many plays), Napa, Vienna, Boston, San Diego and LA! And to end the year we’re heading to Mississippi to spend time with dear friends!

As those of you who follow me on Facebook know, my daughter graduated with honors from college this year and is now working as a production assistant on Hollywood Today Live! It’s a great show, if you haven’t seen it, check it out!!!

On the Writing Front

Much of this year has been spent on RISING STORM, a project created by Julie Kenner and I. As you know, my book, Thunder Rolls, the 8th episode in the series came out on November 12th.

We’re super proud of the series. A soap opera you can read! And new mini-season episodes will be released in March with the full new season coming in September 2016! The passion and power of Storm, Texas has captured the imaginations of many. I hope you’re enjoying it too!

Cottage in the Mist, the long awaited sequel to Everything In Its Time, should be available for presale in January. Watch here for the announcement!
