NaNoWriMo Week Two is Well Underway
NaNoWri is well underway and I’m keeping up. Barely, but I am. Typically I like to get ahead during the first week so I have some fudge room. Not so this month.

I did an author reading from my latest book, Shear Murder (Book 4 in the Melanie Hogan mystery series) this past weekend.

Back to the Basics
I've decided to take a week-long "partial" leave of absence from electronics. I received an email the other day that contained a series of pictures, each with a brief caption beneath it, that had a profound effect on me.
