Drama in the desert.

The past couple of weeks have been busy, as well as a bit stressful. My aunt has been in the hospital twice for internal bleeding and is still in ICU. Please send out good wishes to her. She could really use them.

In more upbeat news, our pool is getting a waterfall installed today, after 3 days of spraying the pool's shotcrete down several times a day in 100 degree heat. Of course, this is extremely wet work, what with all the extra holes in our water hose. Somehow it got trampled or axed during pool construction and now we get a shower every time we use it. The supervisor has promised to deliver a new one soon. LOL

I've finished another chapter in Desert Magick: Dream Catcher and am fairly certain I will have the manuscript to my editor by the end of June. And in case you missed my previous blogs, the first book, Desert Magick: Superstitions took Finalist award in the 2009 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. I'm thrilled to receive this honor. And a big woohoo goes out to friend and fellow writer Fairlee for winning first prize! You go girl!

If you're in the Phoenix area, I'll be doing a Literary Tea at the English Rose Tea Room in Carefree on September 20th. Everyone attending will get a signed copy of Desert Magick: Superstitions. We will have a formal tea together and they have asked me to read and do a Q&A session. I will also present tasty tidbits about witches, ghosts and other paranormal phenomena in the book to add to the fun. For more info and to make reservations, please visit

Happy Reading!
