Happy New Year to all my friends and family. Thanks to all of you who are following my blog, my accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Linked-In and to all of you who have acquired my book Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series).


Looking back on 2011, I have to say it was a great year–full of growth and challenges and new experiences.

With the help and support of my family, my friends, my writing group Trinity Writers’ Workshop and many new friends I’ve met on the internet:

I published my first novel Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing) in both paperback and ebook format.

Brands Crossing Series Book One

I created my blog, my website, my Twitter account and my Facebook page. I still have a lot to learn about social media, but I’m out there.

I developed new on-line creative writing classes which will begin in February of 2012.

I started an on-line business with the following services copy-editing (for academic and creative projects), social media and self-publishing consulting and speaking engagements.

Now I’m looking forward to continuing all of this in 2012.

My second book Whatever Goes Around (Brands Crossing Series) will be published in March of 2012.

My first online creative writing class, Simply Creating Fictional Characters, begins February 1, 2012.

My book blog tour for Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series) will run from 1/1/12 – 2/29/12.
