Hello friends:  At the urging of those who ought to know, (haha) I have had some new pics taken and will soon let you all see ‘the new me’ post transformation.


In the meantime, work is going forward on “Through Kestrel’s Eyes.” I was thrilled recently when a friend read my first draft and cried at a pivotal point. It is not my habit to enjoy making people cry but in this case I cheered. This is one scene that will undergo little change. When I read that same scene aloud after having been away from it for a while, both my listener and I had tears. It is one of those small victories that keeps me going and believing in myself.


What keeps you inspired, either to keep reading or to keep writing?  I would love to hear from you.
