Snow, snow, snow, snow

Well, it is February 22nd and it is snowing here on Vancouver Island. I have been catching up on my reading list with a lap blanket and a cup of tea. Love my tea. I have recently been reading quite a few paranormal cozy books. Have also been reading some Joy Fielding, Dean Koontz, and Tricia O’Malley.

If you are a Kindle Unlimited member and are getting snowed in like I am today, give one of my books a boo. I have middle grade and teen horse stories for ages 8 – 14 as well as my adult funny cozy mystery series. Here is the link to my Amazon Central .com.

Stay warm. Read lots. Hot cocoa with Baileys is a pretty good substitute for tea too. lol

2023 update

Much of 2023 is going to be focusing on recording the audio books for the last two books in The Gumboot & Gumshoe Series, mainly Gertrude & The Sorcerer’s Gold and Chasing Santa, as well as the last two books in The Silver Spurs Series, Bandits, Broads & Dirty Dawgs and Who Killed Cade. The final book in the latter series is still a work in progress as I wasn’t happy with the original story line and am reworking it. I am also thinking of changing the title.

I plan on illustrating The Unicorn Daze Series. I have had several requests from readers. These novels are currently written in an easy to read play format and I will probably revise that formatting. This may take me into 2024 as that is a lot of paintings and I don’t work that fast anymore given I have finally learned to stop and smell the roses, or in my case, sand and salt water. lol

So, it is going to be a busy year. I hope your 2023 is successful and filled with laughter, friends and joy.

Update on a 4th book to The Silver Spurs Series

I had a bit of writer’s block and took some time off to decide where this ‘special edition’ to the Silver Spurs Series would go. I have the outline done and am now working on a 4th book which will take place ten years in the future from the trilogy finale, Who Killed Cade. Right now, fans, it is a slow go because of other commitments to it may not be ready until January 2023 even though it is a Christmas story. Sorry about that. 🙂
