Greetings to the 7 or 8 people who actually read this blog and my books (okay, that’s a reverse exaggeration. However, I am not a best seller – yet- so….I’m taking license with the numbers).


and they are 50% off at Smashwords with those magic coupon codes.

I had been working on the prequel to “These Foolish Things” and “At Last” (tentatively titled “The Baldie Chronicles”), but it has been a struggle and not just because of disruptions by real life.  Telling Liz’s story before Ty has been tough.

Meanwhile, not so subtle pressure has been building for a story after “At Last.” I had intended the story to end exactly where it did. My hand to God and and  a notarized affidavit.

Here’s the thing: where a younger Liz wasn’t talking to me very much (you writers of fiction understand), the Liz of my creation WONT SHUT UP. Neither will Millie, Angie, Joey or …Ty. Actually, he just sits back and lets everyone else do the talking. Ty is cool like that.


Yeah, ah, okay, this is how I visualize him.

So, as I write this, I’m sitting in a Starbucks (how stereotypical) researching stroke recovery. And scribbling questions to myself  (the creativity works better with pen and paper). And I have another composition book. And I’m having trouble keeping up what I’m “hearing ” from Liz and friends (WILL YOU PLEASE STOP TALKING OVER EACH OTHER..!?!?!??? JESUS KUH-RIST ALMIGHTY!).

All y’all who said, “I want more!” It’s coming.

“Baldie Chronicles” is on hold.

“Untitled Liz Gardner Project” is underway. (Which means I need to do some changes on the Amazon site listing “At Last” as the third book.)

Well, November 30 from 5-10 PM and December 1 from 11 AM to 5 PM, you’ll not only be able to buy copies of this:


But also THIS:



The NEW book! That’s right, Gang; if you COME ON DOWN on November 30, you can get signed copies of “At Last” ahead of the scheduled release (Okay, 12 hours ahead, but still…) And on Sunday, December 1, we MAY have wine. Yeah.

The Santora Building is home to a bunch of art galleries and it will be OFFICIALLY Christmas season (Enough of this Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer out before Halloween). Lots of cool, unique gift ideas to be found AND there are some terrific restaurants and bars in the Artists Village area (Memphis, Gypsy Den, Lola Gaspars).

Yes, you CAN  get “At Last” ahead of the crowd. BUT, you’re going to have to go through me to do it.

November 30, Green Door Gallery, 207 N Broadway, Santa Ana, CA. Be there, Aloha.

At Last Cover Reveal

I’d like to thank Legalogos and Tom Roskelly (the designer).


Ain’t it pretty?


“These Foolish Things” is a response to all the love stories that begin with young lovers and end immediately after mutual declarations of love. Life continues after youth and love can happen anytime, anywhere.
“At Last” picks up where “These Foolish Things” leaves off. Elizabeth Gardner and Ty Hadley seem destined for “happily ever after,” but fate has challenges in store that could tear them apart. Is their love strong enough to survive?
Available on Amazon (paperback and Kindle) December 1.
