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 2012 - Memories, including a quilt!

We've had a lovely Christmas, topped off by a family wedding - what could be lovelier?!

We started with Christmas in Boone with my mom.


Then Christmas in Alabama with some of Don's family.  We didn't have a full contingent this year for Christmas dinner, but caught up with everyone later in Mississippi for the wedding.


and this beautiful woman you see in this picture is my sister-in-law.  LeeAnn.  I love LeeAnn.  And now I love her even more than ever! 

Look what she made us

It's a Memory Quilt made from tee shirts.  Very special tee shirts.  These are shirts from concerts we've been to and other events and happenings that have special meaning to us.
Here are a few close-ups -

 Isn't it fantastic?!
I love it to pieces.
Thank you LeeAnn!!!!

Very cool! I want one with all the t-shirts I have with book sayings on them (like Archie Goodwin, Sherlock Holmes, etc).
