It has been a hectic few months and as I am between books (barely) I thought now was the perfect time to update you on what’s going on with me lately.
I moved house about six weeks ago. Gosh, you might think, surely she’s had time to settle down by now, but this move was a huge deal for me personally as well as from a logical standpoint. Getting the boxes unpacked was the easy part. Finding that equilibrium so the words flow in my stories was another matter entirely.
I didn’t just move house, I moved four hours drive away from my comfort zone. I left my kids and grandkids behind and while I love my little house, I don’t know anyone in this new town. I’d never even visited the town before I bought my house. It’s the biggest decision I have made since my marriage broke up almost three years ago and I’ve had some scary moments lol.
Of course stress doesn’t help with your health and mine suffered a bit since I moved. But overall, it’s been a positive experience. I haven’t owned a house since I was in my twenties (and yes, that was a long time ago), and now, okay the bank owns this one, but I am slowly coming up with plans to renovate my tiny house and my huge bare backyard. Poor Scruffy is missing his trees and the possums and his stress doesn’t help mine, but I am on the lookout for a new four footed companion for him – someone who will help him guard my yard 🙂
Snake Snack was the first book I have published since I moved house and I have another one coming out this week, Cam’s Promise from the Northern States pack series (Under Lee Oliver). I know you are all waiting for the next Cloverleah and I can finally tell you it is in the pipeline. But I am sure you understand with all that has been going on lately, that delving into the complexity that Marius’s story will bring, wasn’t something I could bring myself to do when I was still trying to find where my lovely daughter stashed all my belongings lol.
I guess the point of this rambling message is that I didn’t want you to think I had forgotten you. I am on social media every day, as best I can be, but I know many of you on here prefer not to use FB or Twitter and I totally understand. But I do appreciate the emails, pictures and lovely messages of support I have been receiving. Thank you all so much. As I said in the dedication on Snake Snack, my life would be bleak without you.
Have a wonderful day 🙂
