such a long time

in the making.

planned so long ago.




tiny steps

tiny steps

tiny steps

make the journey



but here we are at






August 2018 Nikolette Jones and I bantered out the plans for 3 Nikki Knox stories that I would write by August 2019. Unfortunately, August 28 I suffered a brain injury that meant time off work, therapy, and a long road of recovery. I have been dabbling for 2 years with the 4th book, and it is FINALLY finished! It is two years late, but it’s here at last! Nikolette is busy with the art and there will be a new, lovely Nikki Knox 4 book compilation out in the next few months! Yay! It’s so good to have a brain that’s working again.







harping on June 8, 2013

Today, I was procrastinating the task of sitting down to finish my high interest low vocabulary novella that has been hovering over my head for something like 5 years.


How do I procrastinate?   Well, today it was by transposing some of the tunes I have memorized in the key of C, into the key of G so I can play them on my little double strung Brittany harp.

You’ll be happy to know that I *did* actually sit down at the computer eventually, and a couple of hours later, I *did* finish the ubiquitous novella called #8 (aka Number Eight) this afternoon.

Now onto the revisions.  (Between the harping sessions, of course). 😉
