A new direction

My writing career has taken a new direction. Yes, I will continue to write the third novel of The Melrose Farm series, but I am now also doing something a little different. I have taken an online course on how to become a Travel Writer and Photographer. It is going very well and I already have my first assignment! I will be taking a vacation with some of my family to Southwestern Virginia in July. I have already made a deal with an "E-zine" site to sell several stories of that trip, plus some photos. In case you are not familiar with the term, E-zine is a digital magazine that you read online. I will probably add some of those stories to this site, or at least parts of them. I am excited about taking trips and getting paid to do it! Wish me well, please.

I have now become a part of GoRead. Hopefully, I will be able to link all of this together, so there will be only one site to check out if you want to follow me online. More about this later.

We are back from our extended vacation. Exhausted! The 22+ hour flight home, in mostly rough weather, was not fun.  The places we went were great, the scenery was beautiful, met some great people, and even managed to write about half of the sequel to my book....

The picture below was taken about 40 years ago when my husband and I were on a road trip. It was taken out of the windshield of our car somewhere in Arizona. It was put away in an album and forgotten. However, my subconscious must have been at work, and it appears in my book. I moved it to Western Texas and call the scene Melissa Mesa and The Castle. You will have to read #Circumstantial Connections to find out why.
