We're (my husband and I) in the middle of building a house and I forgot I was up today and there is more roofing to put on. So... You are getting a Blatant Self-Promotion blog.

Where the house is at the moment.

Releasing November 1st I'll be in a Christmas Anthology with other authors of Windtree press.

The Gift of Christmas 

An Anthology of Christmas stories  by a dozen authors from the Windtree Press.

A former Marine, desperate for employment, takes a temp job that leads to a life-changing decision on Christmas Eve. A family locket with magical powers saves the life of its wearer during the holidays. A doctor’s nonfiction reflection of her father’s cancer diagnosis reveals the spirit of Christmas.

Add in a little dog’s snowy adventure, magic realism, and a touch of mistletoe, and readers will delight in these 12 diverse and heartfelt stories exploring the love, messiness and miracles of Christmas.
