Me and My Dog: A Summer of Sand and Waves

I've been reconnecting to nature and therefore myself, finding out who I am in the aftermath of an ended relationship as I transition to new levels of creativity, listening to the music inside me and singing many new songs, and some old ones (with higher notes), as I embark on a new writing project that is actually not new at all but definitely is expanded, welcoming positivity, recognizing poetry in all forms, honoring the dance that exists in every step, and embracing life.

Mr. Poss and I

On another note, the illustrations for Squirrel Superhighway are completed, and I am looking forward to publication sometime soon!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  2015 has been a year of many changes for me, and 2016 promises new experiences, so let them all be positive.  I'm especially looking forward to the release of Squirrel Superhighway, or It's Good to be a Dog.  I wish everyone out there a year filled with all that makes you happy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello!  I just wanted to pop on here to wish a happy holiday season to whomever may wander onto this page and to give a squirrelly update.  I am informed of the good news that the illustrations are almost complete, and I am hoping for even better news that they are all the way complete soon!  

In the meantime, more manuscripts are in the process of development, and both Green Gooey Goop and Silly Moments are available as soft cover and ebook in time for the holidays.  

In addition, Possum and I are adjusting well, and we are enjoying our strolls around the neighborhood.  He tries to go fast, but he's like 98 years old, so fast is really just measured by bursts of enthusiasm over bees and butterflies, and then he slows down again so he can pee everywhere.  It's idyllic, really.

I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!

A King's Farewell

(2004 - 2015)

King is the one closest to the birdbath in this picture.  

King lost his extended battle with cancer Thursday, October 1, 2015.  

He will always be remembered as a constant source of joy and unconditional love.

I love you, King.
