I know it's been a while and for that I sincerely apologize. There's been a ton of things going on and not going on in my life. Not that I'm trying to make excuses or anything, but writing the blog has been on the list of things to do, just not on the top of the list.
Fall weather has arrived here in North Alabama which means that I've officially switched from summer tropical fragrances to all things pumpkin with a little brown sugar vanilla mixed in for good measure. After living on and off in Hawaii for the past several years, the change of seasons is welcomed and refreshing. It's nice to have that hint from mother nature that things are changing and that you can start fresh.
Speaking of starting fresh, I'm working on a new project. A story that has been rumbling around in this head of mine for over a year now, Project Alice. It will probably be a stand alone novel, at least that's what I've planned for now. It's different from my normal books, but I do hope that you will enjoy it. Conspiracy theories, anyone?
I've not forgotten about Devecheaux Antiques and will be visiting that world soon. Monica and I are planning on chatting about that in the near future and I'm sure our plotting session will get things kicked off. We will deliver the sixth book in the series sometime between now and the beginning of 2023.
On a more personal note, I've been out of pocket these last few months due to having surgery in June. I was diagnosed with skin cancer in May. In June, I had Mohs procedure and reconstructive surgery on my face of all places. I'm cancer free, but I have to admit it was a traumatic experience that left me feeling less than myself. The creative juices just wouldn't flow. I had no desire to sit at a desk and write. My mind would only venture to what ifs and how comes, not the world of the paranormal adventures of my characters.
I took a hiatus, had to step back, do some self healing and start therapy sessions before I could even think about writing. I'm happy to say that I finally feel like me again and the passion for storytelling has been reignited.
Thank you for your patience with me and stay tuned because there are many exciting things happening these next few months!
