Thanksgiving 2009

This was a great day for our family and hope it was for you and your’s as well. It has been a challenging year with the loss of dear friends and my Dad, financial circumstances for most of our children, but today — I am thankful for our health, our home, food to eat, a car to drive, and six wonderful children and four awesome grandchildren. It has been an amazing year for me as a writer with three books released during this year of 2009.

Great things are happening during this wonderful holiday and Christmas season. Come back and see the “Spirit of the Season” online catalog on December 1st.

“Shelter from the Storm”, my latest novel, is set for release that same day – December 1st, as well as “Flash Tales: An Adventure in Words”, an anthology that includes 20 very short stories I wrote. There are five contributors, including myself, in this fun little book.

I’ll be doing a book laugh autographing in the Seattle area in mid-December and will keep you’all posted for details. Please come back often and check out what’s coming up.
