Ah, it's been a while - Good to be back!
What I'm Reading
Read John Green's Paper Towns on an airplane. Waiting for a new box of books to arrive on my doorstep any moment now.
What I'm Writing
A new historic, magically realistic MG, along with my ghost story MG, which was stalled a bit. But I figured out a few of the problems while on hiatus. Hopefully I'll have two sparkly new manuscripts by the end of the year.
Coffee. Cold weather. A fresh sheet of paper and a new bolt of fabric. It's my favorite time of year, and colder than average too, which I LOVE.
What Else I'm Up To
Well, I spent the last almost two weeks of August here:
I spent my birthday in a volcano, snorkeled on a coral reef, fed a wild sea turtle, visited a beach made of gemstones, and slept in a room where dolphins woke us up each morning outside the window. Yeah, can't complain.

And now that we're home - Big art show this weekend! This will be my second year in a row at the Art Farm in Holy Hill. Last year was fantastic. I can't wait for some live music, fresh local food, sunny late summer weather and meeting up with all the fantastic artists I met last year at the Farm. But that means that this week is sewing and prepping time. Next week will be diving back into writing time.
I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend lined up!
