"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

I'm fine, thanks

What's new with you?

I'm running off to the mountains for a week, a week without internet or television, but with my family (including the dogs), my friends, and my tablet. I finally finished the fourth Peri mystery, so that will brew at home while I'm away.

Today, I'm over at Michelle Knowlden's cyber-house, drinking coffee and talking about my books. She is such a gracious hostess, in addition to being a fabulous OC writer. I may never leave if she keeps pouring the hazelnut light roast.

One of the things we discussed was the trio of books I'll be releasing in October. I'm really excited to be launching my books at the Placentia Heritage Festival, especially since one of my books is full of columns all about Placentia.

I'm still trying to come up with a name for my chicken. Enter and win. In the meantime, stop by Michelle's place to say hi. You can find me here: https://mlknowlden.wordpress.com/2015/08/07/august-2015-first-friday-breakfast-with-an-author/

I am so happy to hear there will be a new Peri Minneopa mystery coming out. My only question is this: when will it be out? My sister and I love this series and we love Bennie. He makes us laugh...a lot!

Gee, the ink isn't even dry on the first draft, Laurie! I plan to start the edits in two weeks. If you read my interview with Michelle, you'll know I do an insane amount of editing, but I hope to have the book out before March 2016.
