New Author Webpage

Meanderings and Muses isn't going anywhere.


I do have a new webpage which will focus mostly on my writing.

If you're interested in reading more about my books, anthologies, and events, please click over to

There are a few videos of me reading from "Whimsey: A Novel," and from other favorite authors' work.

With more videos still to come.

The new page is a work in progress with plans for still more to come
- I'm just still trying to figure out exactly what that might be -
so check back from time to time, please.

See you there!

Christmas in Boone 2011

It was a quiet Christmas in Boone.

It's just us, and we keep it simple.

Mother comes over on Christmas Eve and we have a nice dinner and visit,

Then we relax while we play a quiet, fairly sedate and somewhat serious game of Canasta.

And Christmas morning we all get up and are always excited to see what Santa has left under the tree.

And we're all happy for the blessings and joys of our life and look forward to another year of the same.

But Wait!

We get one more Christmas celebration with Donald's family! Yippee! Stay tuned!

Looks like a lot of fun was had by all. Merry Christmas Kaye to you, Donald and your Mom.

My parents used to stay up all hours of the night playing canasta with a whole crew of other "moms and dads" while we young ones hung out in the other rooms of the house. Good memories!

I love Harley with his gifts. What a grand Corgi boy he is. :)

Merry Christmas to all of you!
