Write back to Vt.

Back to the mountains I went this past week and relaxation was all that was on the IMG_5948schedule for each day, every day. I also had an opportunity to put a fair amount of time into penning my next book, which is coming along very well, thank you for asking.

Since last report I have also added a few writing projects to my ‘To Do List’. It may be a little early to go into detail on them, but I can assure you that they will be entertaining reads when all is said and done.

Each time I return from my hide away in Vermont I have discovered a little more about life and what is important. Invariably the simplicity of it speaks to me and the knowledge of less equals more becomes more obvious and brings a renewed sense of peace. Quieting down inside is something I always enjoy doing. It provides that much needed balance to IMG_5869offset some of the hectic pace that I deal with an any given day here at home. My life maintains a comfortable balance along the spectrum between a busy career as an ED nurse and a recluse in a mountain hideaway.

To Dance in the Rain, A Mother and Daughter’s Journey of Hope and Healing has been selling steadily in the past few months, mostly through the ebook venue. I am working on selling and signing events at a couple of holiday bazaars this year and will keep you updated. Books will be offered at 40% off (bookseller/wholesale rate) starting November 1st on the website, to book clubs and at holiday events. Alicia and I also enjoy speaking to any size group.

Alicia is doing quite well, moving ahead with her goal of walking again; she is working out and becoming more determined (or impatient) each day. She has also been applying to a steady stream of jobs lately in the social services field…fingers crossed!

To Dance in the Rain… on cloud nine!
