So my Publisher Pelican Publishing got sold today to Arcadia Publishing. They made an announcement about it, each giving a sample of the books they published and my book was one of the ones my Publisher put up.

So cool.

So, I know I'm late to the whole New Year's Resolution thing this year, but my hope is to have at least a third book up on my blog this year. I'm working on two projects so we'll see.

Fingers crossed.

Gilbert Worthy AKA Mr. Red

 Gilbert Worthy. My very good friend and person who made me feel safer at work than anyone else. The character Mr. Red in Hurricane Boy was based on the lovely Gilbert. He came to Hollis's aid in the same way I saw him come to patient after patient's aid at work. He is gone now, but his legend still lives. I am grateful to have known him.

The Land of Rowan Oak: An Exploration of Falkner's Natural World.

Ed Croom, a Botanist and Photographer took this photo for Cheryl Mathis and I because he felt it would fit the book we're currently working on. He's right. It does.

This is Ed Crooms Book.
There are many more gorgeous and evocative pictures inside of it. A kind and talented man.
