Keeping busy

I'm beginning to see a lot of pretty posts about Fall lately and it makes me feel all warm and cozy. I so welcome the change from hot and humid to warm and cozy, don't you? I look forward to the lovely Fall colors and cooler weather with open arms!
And speaking of cooler weather, my illustrator and her husband are now well on their way to jolly old England on family business, but she assured me she will be hard at work on my newest children's book while she's there. Stay tuned in for a release date. August is just around the corner!
I have many new projects keeping me busy, ( that's why I've been absent from my blog ) one of which includes a new book of poetry. This will include a short selection of my story poems as well as a miscellaneous selection of my personal favorites, some new and some previously published. Other new projects I am not ready to reveal as yet, but I can tell you I am wearing a big smile as I type!
