February 2018 - It's been a few years since I've updated my website. My writing took a backseat to some wonderful family events including a wedding in 2014, a new granddaughter in 2015, twin grandsons in 2017, a trip to Italy to celebrate my husband's and my forty year anniversary in 2017, my husband's retirement in 2017, the completion of a new house, and a move from Chicago, IL to Smith Mountain Lake, VA in 2017. Lots of other things happened in three years, but what I mentioned were the highlights. My hope and plan is to write again! Wish me luck!

Sad news. It's been a tough year. Musician Phil Guy passed away August 20th due to prostate cancer which had spread. He was diagnosed in January. I was his music manager for 3 1/​2 years but a friend of his family and him since 2001. We were working on revising a manuscript I wrote specifically about Buddy Guy, to include information about Phil, too.
I will continue to move forward with that project.

Hello 2007!
