It’s been awhile …. We’ve had a busy few months–first we moved, and had some issues with that. Then we’ve had back-to-back medical issues. We’re finally settled, and I have been able to return to my book. As of today, the files for Out of the Ashes are in…

One year ago today, we officially adopted a local stray cat, and named him Cookie. He’s very handsome . . . Even if he is a sneak-thief. It’s also Ciarnait’s birthday! She’s been with us since she was about 5 weeks old, and she is now 15 years. We don’t…
Cookie Day!

I finished the final edit of Out of the Ashes last night – yay! I still need to do the back/front matter, formatting, and final cover revisions, but then it will be ready to go. Short and sweet, this time. 😉
It’s DONE!
It’s DONE!

With Out of the Ashes in the beta-reader stage, I have returned to working on the next Twinkle Dingle story (tentatively titled “A Fairy Excellent Adventure”). It’s a prequel to Don’t Piss Off the Fairies, and tells the story of how the whole mess with…
