Back at the Keyboard

Yes, I’m still around. Some of you were wondering, weren’t you? Well, for those who were, thanks for thinking of me.

What have I been up to you ask? Well, after getting the rights to my books back, I found myself a bit overwhelmed with work and family. So, as happens in life, I put writing aside. I didn’t even give it much thought for about ten months, and then slowly, the itch to create returned and story ideas began sneaking their way into my day to day activities. I’m happy to report, the voices are back…

Unfortunately, it’s the start of a very busy time in the boating world called winterization. Definition – the race to pull all the boats out of the water and prepare them for the upcoming winter. And so, for now my writing is slow going as I try to balance my day job with my desire to create. During the slow moments at work, I’m ‘tweaking’ my completed stories, NOT WITHOUT RISK and AFTER MIDNIGHT. I would love to find a publisher for them. But in the meantime, I’m most excited about the plotting I’ve been doing for a new book, a romantic suspense with the working title, NOWHERE TO HIDE.

I’m still in the planning stages, but am very excited about the book. The story has been rattling around in my brain for a few years now, just waiting for me to take the time to tell it. It will be nice to get it out of there! LOL

I hope you all had a great summer. I look forward to talking with you again soon.
