Extending Eager Hands...: The Other Sister

Extending Eager Hands...: The Other Sister: Have you ever seen the movie " The Other Sister ?" It makes me cry my eyes out. It hits me so close to home that I can almost not bear it....

I'm an offensivist.

I try to write humor and will be laughing while writing something I send to someone, only to find out once again, that I am not a humorist. I'm an offensivist.

Thank you, Andrea Graham

Thank you, Andrea Graham, for working so hard on my manuscript and forcing me to make Shatterworld a better book.

Strawberries and Leaves

My dear sweet husband dug up the strawberries I had let cover the entire garden, and laid them in rows so next year I should be able to pick the fruit without stepping on so many berries. Yesterday I laid piles of leaves between the rows and today I am sniffling. Oh, and today I must remember to drive up to Longview so I can take my dad to the dentist.
Yesterday, also, I had a real portrait of me taken at Penney's so I could have a picture on the back of Shatterworld, which should be coming out in January. The photographer has a seven year old who loves sci-fi and math. I made predictions about the rest of her character and nailed every one of them. I already love that little girl and look forward to meeting her on Launch Day.
