Along with my joy of the newly arrived spring, I find myself obsessed with deleting the clutter that has accumulated during my winter doldrums.

Having a slight OCD tendency, I can’t just shovel everything into boxes and garbage bags.

Oh no, once I start I clean right down to the baseboards.  Don’t worry, this doesn’t happen often.  As friends and family can attest, house cleaning comes WAY down my list of priorities.

While I’m in the middle of a writing or teaching project–or maybe in the middle of a good book–I tend to overlook the chaos surrounding me. But even I become aware of it eventually.

So, if you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t worry, I’m just busy with swifters, sponges, broom, mop and vacuum.

The cats are hiding under the bed.

In the meantime, remember to check out my free Ebook promotion for Thicker Than Water, (Brands Crossing Series). Until April 20 you can click here and order a free kindle copy.
