From the Sea of Cortez #3

A little pre-Christmas round up… Don’t think it’s all writing and eating food down here. There are errands to run in paradise. Our Internet went out late last week. Of course we thought it had to do with the router we installed, but after reconfiguring it from scratch approximately 7,000 […]


From the Sea of Cortez #2

It’s getting colder down here, especially in the mornings.  The past couple of days it’s only gotten into the mid-sixties.  I know, I know… I’ve seen the weather reports for the U.S.   It’s probably a lot warmer down here than where you are, and that’s one of the reasons […]


From The Sea of Cortez #1 1

We’ve been here for five days… Beautiful weather, although it was a little on the chilly side today with a few clouds, but they were gone by this evening. My routine is simple…  Go to sleep early. Wake up early. Write all day. Repeat. I tend to move my writing […]


Bubbling Birthday Berry Pie 2

I’m happy to be 58 today.  I was also happy to be 57, 56, 55, 40, 22…etc. Sent out some sample chapters from a novel I’m working on this morning, which is always a good thing to do on your birthday. And Marie has made what looks to be a […]


Thank You

We’re up North at Niki and Derek’s with grandson’s #3 and #4. I certainly have a lot to be thankful for and I hope you do too… But I think Thanksgiving should be a daily ritual, not a yearly event. I don’t mean the turkey, and stuffing, and cranberry sauce. […]


The Farm 11/20, a pocketful of novels

Dreary day on the farm, but it’s bright in the house with Marie back home. The plan… Continue to hunker down in the office writing until Tuesday, then we’ll head north to Niki’s for Thanksgiving. If there are any editors lurking on this blog, fear not, I will continue to […]


Hunkered Down, King Kong, Books, and Marie

At the farm working… I can’t tell you how nice it is to be in my messy office writing. I’ve caught up on my errands…some critical, some not so critical. Last night I ‘listened’ to King Kong on TV (1976 version) while I autographed 4000 bookplates. I didn’t have to […]


Ketchup 2

I’ve caught up on my sleep, and now I’m playing catch up on the writing projects. I’m so far behind it’s hard to know where to begin. The important thing is to begin and see where it leads me. A path will emerge from the chaos–it always does. Low 30s […]
