Time out for Human Interaction

    As an author, I spend a lot of time with my imaginary friends (characters) in my imaginary worlds. Last Friday, I sat down to dinner with 25 authors and bloggers. The fun thing is I met most of these people on-line...

    Things are warming up.

    A funny thing happened this week. I typed three chapters without my dog Snoopy trying to sit in my lap. My assumption is that between me and the laptop my furry friend wants something cooler. So now he just stares...

    I Miss Parades…

    For several years my children took part in 4th of July parades on floats or in marching bands. This will be the third year in a row where no one is in a parade.  I probably won’t drive down...
