Well, a new year is here and that means it’s a time of new things as well! I’d like to thank each and every visitor to this site for your support, even if it’s your first time clicking through my blog I wish you all a very healthy, happy 2013!
Now, on to the news…
My baby boy HAS arrived and is quite the little charmer. He’s about 3 1/2 months old now, already smiling and laughing at us. My daughter, who’s nearing in on 3 years old, is completely smitten. In fact, they totally love each other already and it just makes my heart swell to see them interact. I can’t wait until he’s big enough to play with her, and I suspect that they both can’t wait for that day either!
In terms of my writing, things have been slow. I’m sorry to say that having a new baby, beginning a new degree program (I’m working toward an MFA so I can teach writing classes when these little kids are both in school), and just general “life” stuff, not much writing has been getting done around here. In the meantime, I hope you’ve all had a chance to get caught up on the four books I rapid-fire published from 2011-2012. If you haven’t, I’m giving some time to catch up to me!
In any event, there WILL be news soon of new writing endeavors. I’m crafting a sequel to LOVE REGIFTED (by popular demand) so you’ll all have a chance to visit with Jay & Ava one more time. In fact, I’m thinking of creating a whole LOVE series, which will fill in the gap between LOVE REGIFTED and LOVE UNLISTED, and then continue the story forward. Don’t get too excited now, but that means Grace & Colin will also be back for more adventures (as well as Kimmy & Patrick, Mackenzie, Ben, Bernsie & George, and even Gabe!)
There are also some other ideas kicking around in my head, competing for my attention. I’m still finishing up THIRTY OR BUST, which will make it’s debut as soon as possible. Beyond that, I’m developing a real tearjerker of a women’s fiction novel entitled THE GIVEN HEART, a four-book series about four sisters called GARDEN VARIETY, as well as an as-yet-untitled paranormal series. Oh yeah, there’s also a collection of urban fairy tale short stories I’m working on editing right now…
Yes, 2013 has me all over the map! And I couldn’t be more excited.
Stay tuned for more updates and I promise (really, I do) to write as FAST as these little fingers can type!
