I'm Back, Alive, and Well

Wow!  How is it that four months have disappeared into the ether already?  Oh yeah, now I remember. I started a new job in October. I telecommuted for two months until we sold our house in California.  We spent a month, including the Christmas holidays in a hotel in Portland waiting for our renters to move out of our house.

Let me tell you, spending a month with your husband in a one room hotel is a test of how well you do or don't communicate and what gets on your nerves. I'm proud to say not only are we still married, but I think we actually got closer during that month.  It reminded me of all the little things that made me fall in love with him in the first place.

We finally were able to get back into our Portland home in January.  I think most of January, when I wasn't working, I was unpacking and unpacking and unpacking. I finally unpacked the last box this weekend! Then there was all that travel--east coast, south, east coast, Middle East, east coast, and three trips to California to finish an adjunct teaching job I accepted before my new job.  Sheesh, I'm tired just writing all that.

I think I'm now as settled as I can be and that means I'm taking stock of all the things I let slip the last four months.  I have several great author interviews in process and you will start seeing them this week. So, please do check back and learn about some wonderful new books and authors you want to know. It's great to be back in Portland, Oregon and great to be back to my fiction writing life and friends again.

Stay tuned!
