Amazon Customer Review: "...truly an epic fantasy! I loved the first two books in the series and this one was a welcome return. A smart escape with some paranormal elements to add to its surprises.

I may provide more detail in the future, but suffice to say my blogging (and writing) has taken a back seat to other demands. I've been procrastinating on blogging for the past two months. I do have plenty of things to write about, but my motivation has been lacking. So, what follows is a brief update on some writing-related topics.

You may have noticed I updated my web page with the 2018 roll-out of the new Google Sites. Like every update, there are pros and cons to Google Site's latest iteration, but I do like the look of my new author page, although the lack of features is limiting.
