picture(60K) Dear readers,

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been blogging much, either on my home page or on FB. The truth seems to be that I'm not, apparently, a blogger. That surprises me, because I can certainly talk a blue streak (ask any one of my forbearing friends). I'm sure that if I still wrote for a New York publisher, I would be feeling pressure to blog something -- anything -- just to keep my name out there. It's what you do. But I'm an independent writer now, and I don't have to if I don't want to. That's the good news. The bad news is that I feel guilty when I sneak out in my PJ's with a cup of coffee to watch a butterfly basking on a blade of grass in the mid-morning sun. (Who invented guilt, anyway? It's such a drag.)

If I had something profound to say, I would blog it. If I thought it could change the world, I would blog it. If I thought it could change just one mind, I would still blog it. If I thought you really wanted to know my favorite food, movie, song, book ... I might blog that. But if you've already read any of my books, then you're probably the kind of reader who would like simply to jump into another world, vividly drawn, for a few hours of entertainment. You're not looking for an answer to the meaning of life, not in a romantic work of fiction. What you're looking for is to swipe or turn the last page of a novel with a sigh of contentment. Why would it matter to you if my favorite color was green?

Still, like most authors with websites, I've posted a biography with photos -- although in it, I'm pretty sure I didn't mention my favorite food (cabbage, no kidding), movie ("Music and Lyrics," no kidding), song (Clapton's "Old Love"; it gives me goosebumps just to type that), or book (Seton's "Katherine," mostly because I was so young when I read it). So there you have it, after all. My favorite things.

Meanwhile, 'tis the season, isn't it? When we run around madly with no time either to read or to write blogs. If things get too crazy, and if you don't have time to read a true book, then let me suggest the latest little chapter of my ongoing Christmas story. It's in its eleventh year, and things are still happening to the villagers. Just click on the village below; it will take you to my Christmas site.
