Cooling off in the Valley of the Sun!

Well, it's finally cooling off here in the Valley of the Sun. We're down to our normal temps in the high 70s and low 80s. Just in time for that Thanksgiving hike to work off all the food we will scarf down next week.

The Mask of Tamirella podiobook is going great and getting lots of listeners. I'm recording and posting as fast as I can within the realm of podcasting. Editing takes longer than the initial recording. And I'm having a great time. Hmm, might even offer some of my other books as podio versions. Check back and see what happens.

Happy reading!

Happy Samhain! Happy Halloween!

Halloween is my favorite holiday! I spent the majority of my childhood Halloweens at the local carnivals and haunted houses then worked them as a teen. What fun! It's been warm here in the Valley of the Sun but we're cooling down into the 80s (our normal) now so tonight will be great weather for all the spooks and goblins that will be out and about. I find it hard to concentrate on work with all the energy around me today and just want to be out celebrating.

If you haven't already, be sure and check out The Mask of Tamirella podiobook at I'm thrilled at the 4 and 5 star ratings! Thanks to all my readers and listeners.

Happy Samhain to my pagan and wiccan readers. Have a wonderful day.

Happy writing and happy haunting!

My sympathies to all who have been displaced by the California wildfires. I lived and worked in Southern California for many years before moving to the desert and consider it my home. I lived there during several major earthquakes, including the Northridge tremor, and this fire devastation seems just as bad, if not worse. Please know that my thoughts are with you and your families.

Another hot week!

Well, The Mask of Tamirella podiobook is well on it's way. I've submitted the first required chapters and am just waiting for word that they've been published. Meanwhile, I'm continuing with my recordings. Not too much longer now. Keep checking back.

A shout out to Sandra in PA for getting her library to stock The Mask of Tamirella. Woohoo! Thanks! Way to go!

After nice teasing temps in the 80s over the weekend, we're now heating up to almost 100 for a few days. Gotta love the desert. Just hope we won't sweat too much for Halloween! Of course, by February, we'll be complaining about the cold. Yeah, desert dwellers are wimps. Me included.

Have a great weekend and happy reading!

Robert Jordan dies.

Well, I just found out that one of my favorite authors died on September 16th. He was the author of the Wheel of Time fantasy series, as well as many other works. My husband and I would like to extend our condolences to his family. He and his work will be missed.

Desert heat inside and out!

The audio version of Tamirella is getting closer and closer. Please be patient. I'll let everyone know when the first chapters are available for download. My other novels are coming along nicely again. I took a break from writing to get a good start on the audio stuff and am now settled into a new schedule that allows me to do both without yanking my hair out and cursing at my microphone. I've also been losing sleep and having to get up in the middle of the night to make writing notes. Um, that's a good thing, in case you're wondering.

Meanwhile, I hope those of you here in the desert are surviving the summer. Looks like more triple digits this week. Oh, joy. Also, a shout out to yet another cousin who is coming out with a book soon. Maybe this writing thing does run in the family. Hmm. For all you writers out there, may your brain fodder be creative and keep you up at night. Happy reading!
