What’s New??

What can I say, 2009 was a very challenging year!! It began with the release of THE WITCH’S GRAVE and ended with back surgery!! I had a big problem staying current on everything as everyone can see by my lack of posts on this blog! But it’s now a new year and it’s off to a great start…the surgery was a success and next week, on the 26th, THE SEVENTH WITCH hits the bookstores!

I received my editor, Emily’s comments, and I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but this is our first book together. My former editor, Sarah Durand, left Avon for a position at Simon and Schuster. To be honest, I experienced a bit of a panic when she left!! We worked really well together, and although I was happy to see a woman of her talents move ahead in the world, my first lament was “what about me??” lol. Yeah, pretty selfish!! However, Emily has ably stepped into Sarah’s shoes, and I’m looking forward to working with her on other books. BUT first I have to get this edit done!!
