I'm glad to be here.

It's my first day posting on this new website/blog. I'm still getting used to how to use Squarespace, for one. So consider this practice. And bear with me. Please.

I did add another blog post, one I had written a while back. So you can get to know me a little bit and gain some insight into why I became a writer. Yeah, maybe it's because my boyfriend said I was ugly. Those things need to be documented.

It's okay. I have gotten over that incident. Good thing considering it was 25 years ago. Right? Not to mention, I bet I've aged better than him. Because I am cute, and he has an ugly soul.

But back to the now. Hi.

My very first children's book is ready for publication. It's called Lost (and Found), and it's the beginning of a series I have written about a little girl named Lady and her best friend, a jellybean named Dorian. Lady has long, dark hair and freckles. And a fun sense of style. Dorian is super cute, aqua, and shaped like a... jellybean. He likes to eat peanuts in the shell. Well, the peanuts. Not the shells.

My hard copy proof has been shipped. I need to review it and then say the word: "Approve." Do you know what happens when I say that word? It goes live on Amazon. My book. For sale. Gulp.

It's been 15 months in the making, this book. I simply can't wait for you to meet Lady and Dorian.
