My oldest child has completed the task set before a child and will take the last steps into adulthood today. It is a happy day and a sad day. With joy, I have watched him grow into a wonderful young man. I am proud to call him my son.

But . . . I know the changes that have arrived. He is no longer my dependent. He is his own man. I will have to respect this new fact, if I hope to have a healthy relationship with him.

Today, I am a lost momma(in the tears of change). So, today, I am offering the final free day of The Case of the Missing Mother E-book this month.

Congratulations, son!

Happy Mother's Day

I loved reading to my children. So, in honor of Mother's day tomorrow, I have scheduled a free e-book promotion of The Case of the Missing Mother for May 11-12, 2014.

It is my hope that you take time to enjoy the little moments with your child(ren) or grandchild(ren), if you are lucky enough to have them nearby.

I am sorry about the unexpected hiatus from writing/illustrating and blogging. I took a part time seasonal job. It turned into much more than I expected. I was scheduled to work 20 hours a week however I worked 40 to 60 hours per week.

This past week I have started writing again. The hiatus was good for my creative soul but it is time to get back to work. Thank you for your continued support during this crazy time in my life. Keep your eyes peeled for creative writing exercises (short stories) to begin reappearing on this blog.

Last weekend, May 2-3, 2014, I scheduled a promotion to offer The Case of the Missing Mother as a free e-book in honor of my Mother-in-Law's 90th birthday. I have several other promotions scheduled this month, stay tuned for future postings. (Hint: I couldn't resist the connection with the word mother in the title.)

Free Book Promotion

If all has gone right, The Case of the Missing Mother e-book should be a Free E-book available at Amazon on May 2nd and 3rd, 2014, in honor of my Mother-in-Law's 90th Birthday. 

Happy Birthday, Ella! It's not everyday that you turn 90! I wanted to honor the woman who raised my husband to be a loving supporting man.
