Long Time, No See
Well, it's been a long time since I posted. I've been writing like crazy -- I have a deadline coming up fast -- and so all efforts are being channeled into the manuscript for my next book Me Since You.
Consider this kind of an update post just so I can send good wishes out to everyone, say Happy Spring and show a little of what's been going on here.
First up, if you're going to be anywhere near Hudson, NY on May 5th, please stop in at The Hudson Children's Book Festival on Harry Howard Ave and say hi. I'll be one of the authors there and there's nothing more delightful than meeting readers or seeing old friends again!
Second, there is a new, very sweet-natured and tolerant little skunk hanging around now. I almost stepped on her the other day by mistake and instead of getting excited and raising her tail, she just waited while I stopped, and very quietly backed up. This is the third time I've met up with her and so far we're doing really well at tolerance and harmony.
Here she is, having a snack the other day, while one of the cats waits his turn:
I happen to be a fan of skunks so this works out pretty well. I get to watch her and hopefully get her used to my presence (without getting sprayed) and she gets to roam unmolested.
We'll see how it goes.
And then we have another pair of visitors on the pond, and their feline audience out on the bank:
I love spring, the greening, the energy, the rebirth.
So I'm headed back to work now but I'm sending all good thoughts out to you guys for a sunny April and a gorgeous May.
I'll be around.
