I’ve been quiet for the last few weeks because:
1) I took my #2 daughter to college. College prep, then driving and getting her settled, then coming home and catching up … took time. Lots of time.
2) Writing! Yes, writing is keeping me very busy. Last year I didn’t have as many tight deadlines; this year they seem to have crept up on me. But I finished the edits on MORTAL SIN, have been writing the next Lucy book (and having great fun!) and am expecting the page proofs for COMPULSION, the next Max book, this week.
3) Sports — both boys in football, daughter in softball, and then we transition over the next couple of weeks to daughter in soccer, older son in basketball and younger son in wrestling. Oh, vey. What have I done? The next two weeks there will be double practices.
(Not to mention, the SF Giants have defied all naysayers and made it to the NCLS championship! So I must make time for baseball …)
4) Family Reunion — I took a weekend off to go out of town for a family reunion with my mom and one of my kids. The others couldn’t come 🙁 … I still wrote each morning, but spent most of the time catching up with my clan.
But! I have some news!
