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!

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is having a great summer. June totally flew by for me.

My Lobster Press editor and I continue to revise my book slated for publication next year. The designer is also working on it, then the illustrator will have his chance.

I'm rapidly working on musician Phil Guy's website - check it out at http://www.philguynothrmule.com and
also trying to book him for festival and other gigs.

I had a book signing for the Zoofari campers at our local YMCA and sold quite a few copies of Elton the Elf. Yahoo! Speaking of the YMCA here - I booked Phil Guy to talk about and perform some blues with the older kids at the Zoofari camp. Pretty cool!

Happy Fourth of July!!!
