I’ve been busy volunteering for the last week making visits to our local library and a Bentonville pre school dressed as “Granny Boo” the friendly ghost. It’s such a delight to read books to children. Watching the pure joy in the eyes of children and the excitement created in their imaginations by the world of books is truly Boo-tacular!
With the season turning to fall, it is easy to find so many enjoyable distractions. I’ve been very busy doing just that – being distracted! Walks in the morning with our dog Tilly often begin my day.
Then there’s my volunteer work for Altrusa International. Literacy is our focus. (Isn’t that appropriate?) We are busy providing books for children in preschool, dictionaries for third graders, and restoring lost classroom books and library books for schools in flooded Baton Rouge, LA. Volunteerism also leads me to the local library where I have the opportunity to teach a group of young writers. It’s all good!
So you can see that I can find all sorts of distractions to keep me from doing the writing I need to do on the Deception and Redemption sequel. But Quay Thompson and his partner Samantha Atwood are always on my mind. They are characters who lead very real lives. – at least in my mind. I’ll share them with you soon.
Need a little suspense in your life? If you still haven’t read Deception and Redemption, now would be a good time to do it. You’ll want to be ready when the sequel comes out! There are several 5 star ratings on Goodreads today! That’s great. Keep them coming!
