Hello to Fans, Followers, Friends, and Family.

After a couple of months of not really having enough time to devote to my business world, I think I may be getting back in the "work" mode.

Since January, I have been involved with the full-time babysitting chores for my latest grandchild. Any of you that have children know how much time that requires. Now that he is six weeks old, I have finally re-learned what to do, how to do it fairly quickly, and now have a few minutes a day to get back to keeping up with my author business requirements.

For any of you who have not yet read my book, please do so and then send comments, PLEASE! I have been able to get the next book almost written, but would like some feedback on the first one before publishing the sequel.

I will try to post often, so please keep checking in!

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.
