Hello 2016

As the new year rushes in, I'm glad to put 2015 behind me. However, the memories will always linger, both the pleasant and the sorrow filled ones.

I had several releases in 2015:
Dangerous Justice-Feburary
Duty Bound Guardian -April
Joint Investigation- July
Murder Under the Mistletoe- Nov
I served as President of Rose City Romance Writers, my local chapter of Romance Writers of America
I attended Crimelandia--a conference for crime writers
I went on a 4 day cruise with one of my best friends
I was the high school's drama parent for two productions, both of which my son performed in
My son graduated from high school
My daughter graduated from college
I attended the Romance Writers of America conference in New York City
I attended the Writers Police Academy in Appleton Wisconsin and spent a few days in Chicago visiting a friend
My 14 year old Australian shepherd passed away
I attended the Washington County Sheriff's 14 week long Citizens Academy
My mother passed away
I wrote three books:
Murder Under the Mistletoe-Nov 2015
Protect and Serve--April 2016
Book 5 of the Northern Border Patrol series, title TBA--Oct 2016
Whew! It was a busy and emotional year.

I tried to stay away from social media for the holidays.  It was harder than I expected it to be.

We had a house full of family for Christmas with lots of laughter and love. We played games and watched some funny movies and talked and shopped and ate.  I receive many wonderful blessings and am filled with gratitude for my family and friends.

My little guy loves the snow!

Today it snowed here. Such fun.  But it makes for slick roads. We're housebound today. Tomorrow I'll hit the keyboard hard toward a couple of deadlines. I hope you all have a wonderful week!


  1. I just read your list. Now I have to go take a nap. I am exhausted.

  2. You probably don't want to know I remember a couple of other things I did this year. LOL It was an exhausting year. My goal for 2016 is to stop living each moment like its a crisis.

  3. You know what? I really like your posts. I wander on the internet to find something new or unique. And I see your articles. I decided to linger at your site and read more and more. I hope that you can upload new posts. I will be the first one to read them. Thanks a million
