Welcome Friends


The wind is howling outside my window -- a south-east wind that's been blowing since yesterday. There's still plenty of snow on the ground, but it's the end of March -- and the promise of spring makes me indifferent to that. Besides, I like snow, although I admit in its current state it reminds me of a rose well past its bloom -- with brightness gone and shrivelling around the darkening edges.

I should be working on a story, or doing something constructive ... or, at the very least, performing some mundane task. (A relatively simple but accurate layout of my priorities!) Instead, I've decided to come here and make a little nest, a home for my thoughts, a place to record what matters. To me.
For today, this seems enough. A beginning - a toe dipped in the water. A journey with destinations unknown.

I'm very glad you've stopped by.

Thank you, Marsha! It feels like the fogosphere right now, but I'm sure I'll learn to navigate before too long.

Hi Valerie

Have just finished reading "Kate". What a fabulous book! Can I ask what made you write this book? and is there a hidden theme?

Thks

Hi, Valerie! I'm in 7th grade, and I just finished reading "Eyes of A Stalker" with 4 of my classmates for a book club.

It's a great book!Last week my book club group had to create a presentation to our entire class to summarize the book, and we decided to make a mini play with seven scenes. I played Officer Mueller and Betts.

Your book was so interesting and left me on the edge of my seat! It was very clever of you to trick us into thinking the stalker was Eric, when all along, it was Jason.

I had so much fun with my book club group reading your book, and I hope to read many more of yours in the future! ~Jenna H.
