First, let me thank everyone who has ridden the crazy train of chaos with me over the past two years on my blog. I've been all over the place, writing anything and everything I could, until I wore myself out. Kaput. I lost sight of my goals, and worse, stopped having fun. I was ready to toss the pen, ditch the keyboard, and erase the hard drive. And then what? I asked myself. Give up on your dreams? Yeah, because that would be a great example to my girls. No, I decided to pursue my original goal and write for children, and combine my slight obsession with the paranormal, supernatural, and things that lurk in the dark.

I'm also in the process of revising a PB featuring a creepy, yet adorable main character.(Note added: PB is not peanut butter, paperback, or pickle barrel. It means picture book.)

Reading and writing stories about the paranormal reminds me of sitting on the library floor, back when I was a children's library assistant, and reading books about these subjects with the kids. The shock, awe, and fascination in their eyes was priceless. Giving them more to read, is my goal.
For the time being, my blog posts will focus on my current writings and related stories. I totally get it if some of my followers aren't interested in these subjects. All of you are more than welcome to come along for the wild ride!! Although I will continue to check in with my fellow bloggers, I will more than likely opt out of most writing contests for now. If any of you see me signing up, I give you permission to give me a cyber slap on the hand. I need to keep myself on course.
