Today is October 1. This year is flying by at warp speed.

While existing in pandemic hibernation during 2020 and 2021, like everyone else, I experienced a horrendous two years. Thank goodness for Zoom where I visited with family, friends and fellow authors. Otherwise, like many others isolated by the pandemic, I would have been bonkers. Although I haven’t participated on social media too frequently, I completed several writing projects. Then, vaccines brought me hope for a new normal.


But I decided to totally take summer 2022 away from all things related to writing.  I enjoyed finding my way back to living life in person again, and I delighted in time spent with family and friends and relaxing during the hot summer months. Reading. Gardening. Meeting people for lunch or drinks or dinner. I loved every minute of it. Now, I feel inclined to join the online world again and share with you what I’ve been up to.   


In 2021, I completed the final books in the Town of Pineview series…

Vacancy in Pineview and Posies in Pineview

are available as an eBook  and in print on Amazon.

I’ve recently released a new eBook.

Accidently, On Purpose is a standalone contemporary romance with suspense elements. Writing romantic suspense is a new undertaking for me, and I’ve enjoyed penning this subgenre. I’ve written a Christmas short story, A Home for Christmas, to publish and include in back of the Accidently, On Purpose print version when it becomes available.

I’m back! And I look forward to returning to in person writing meetings and book signing events. 

Happy Reading, everyone.
