How the months have sped by! Like many of you, we celebrated a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday with loved ones. Now, Christmas preparations are upon us.
The holidays are my favorite time of year. This year, I’m especially mindful of change. The varied-colored autumn leaves, the spurt of growth in my two grandchildren, and turning 69 a few weeks ago! Six-eight wasn’t so bad, but sixty-nine daily reminds me that seventy peeks it’s gray head out from around the corner. (Sorry seventy, I refuse to go gray until at least my nineties!)
I continue to embrace the thrill of working with and writing for middle grade and young adult readers. It keeps me feeling young in spite of changes in my hair color, age, and body! To that end, several author friends and I started a new business venture called Family-Friendly Fiction Writers. Combining our passion of writing for kids, we will present various author talks to homeschool groups, and both public and private schools, both in person and online. See our various offerings here. We also plan to visit homeschool conventions this year, so if you or others you know attend these, have them visit our booth exhibit! You can also encourage others to check out and “like” our Facebook page for more information.
My newest release, Underground Scouts, a WW2 historical novel about the Scouts’ efforts to help push the Germans out of Warsaw in 1944, will hopefully appear before Christmas. My editor and I are feverishly working to finish the edits. I’ll keep you posted Happy Thanksgiving and happy changes to you this holiday season!
