Happy New Year to all who visit my blog.

I must say that 2012 was an eventful year for me.

Looking back on this site, I was surprised to note that I have had this blog since 2009. It really is hard to believe it's been that long.

Also, to realize that a few of the snippets I had posted here have made their way to publication, even if they were self-published. Although it has been a learning experience (that I have to do many things myself), I like the creative control of self-publishing. My ego is a little damaged to realize I haven't got a large following yet, for which I need my #1 fan to help remind me that the important thing in the beginning is to get my name and books out there.

Please note that some of the original snippets (that have been published) have been deleted from here. A lot has changed since they were first posted. A few of them were made into short stories, and either, have been or will be, put online for 99 cents.

For 2013 I want to be able to put out two more books. The Janie's Got series - Book Two, and Gale Warning - the 4 elderly witches crime solvers. However, just recently another story came to me which I have spent some time on letting the words go from my brain to the page. Once I exhaust that, I will get back to editing Book Two of Janie, and finish writing Gale Warning.

This year I will also have to find avenues for getting my remaining books sold.

I have spent all of my book revenue purchasing a website, tote bag, ball cap,  and other items that bear the my website information (advertizing). Please visit my website:

I am also a member of The Life Journeys Writers Club:


which has helped to nurture my writing passion. And helped me get to where I am today.

So, yeah, 2012 was a busy year for me.
