Still dealing with family health issues, but hope to have things in that regard settled soon.
One bright spot -- I've sold two short stories to Eaglesong Books. "Tommy" (subtitled Quest for a Lost Love) is a turn of the century tale of an English widow who decides it's not too late for second chances. "Queen of the Ocean" takes place in 16th century Cornwall, and follows the adventure of Frances, a wrecker's daughter, and Mateo, the half-Spanish sailor. Both stories are very special to me (and have great covers, too) and I am thrilled they will be available once more. More details as I get them.
