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!

Joining Forces with Glory

Happy March!

March 2, 2005

Well, the days are getting longer so spring and warmer weather much be just around the corner. Yeh!

My research and writing for my multicultural book continues to move forward. I hope to have the text done within the next couple weeks so it can move on to the designer and illustrator. I can't wait to see what they do with it!

Two cool updates:

Blues Legend Buddy Guy will be inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame March 14th in New York City. B.B. King and Eric Clapton will be inducting him!

Jimmy Lange, my niece Katie's husband, is excitedly awaiting the premier of The Contender, which debuts Monday March 7th on NBC. You can check him and the other boxers out on http://contender.tv.yahoo.com/01/index.html
or just go to Yahoo (the official website) and go to contender. The Mallens and Langes are really excited, too!

Katie and their kids, twins Jack and Angelo and baby Talia will make appearances in future episodes. This week's issue (March 7) of Star magazine also features the boxers.

Until next month - best wishes,
