It is a beautiful sunny day here in Oregon and my yard calls. A few stray weeds tease and taunt me as my flowers beg for a drink and my roses ask for a trim. As a new author, I have to squeeze writing in and around the rest of my life. I have family who need my attention and I have a day job to pay the bills. I often think of J.K. Rowling. I can visualize her writing while on her train commute to work. At least I have heard that’s what she did. I have written about my ‘glamorous’ life which includes pet clean up, housework, yard work and maintenance. I dream of the day when I can leave some of that behind and write full-time.
One of the many reasons I love my yard. Summer hydrangea blooms!
I have always had a big imagination so it isn’t difficult for me to visualize a housekeeper, a gardener and a cook! For now, I keep my imagination working on my favorite characters – Owen, Lucie, White Eagle, Marlo and the gang. At the same time I try to keep putting myself ‘out there’ on social media, work to get The Secret Watchers: Visions published, write The Secret Watchers (Book Three), work my day job, apply for a regular full-time gig, and maintain my life at home. How’s it going, you ask? I’m a little tired but my dreams are big! My wonderful encouraging fans keep me going. Thank you all so much!
Happy July to my wonderful fans. I have been hard at work this summer. I’m working on The Secret Watchers: ? (Book Three). I have also done some minor editing to books one and two. I’m researching self-publishing as well as keeping up with my day job and life in general.
My goal is to finish book three this summer and start book four of what I am planning as a five book package. I already have ideas for another series in The Secret Watchers universe. Also in the works are a children’s book ‘The Little Minces’ (Imaginary creatures who created the recipe for mincemeat pie) and a fantasy story for either the young adult or adult audiences.
Stay tuned faithful fans!!! Thank you so much for all your support and enthusiasm!
