Coming Soon!

Just wanted to share with you the cover for the second anthology I'm involved in.  This book will come out in July 2017.  

Is it weird to anyone else that I already have the cover for a book I haven't finished writing?

Speaking of that... last week I went to Oregon to stay with my sister for a few days so I could research what the Cascade foothills are like because my story is set there.  It's beautiful.  I hope my words can do it justice.  

Also, this cover is lovely, but it really has nothing to do with what I'm writing.  Just FYI.

I'd love to hear what ya'll think of it.

Snow Storm

We got more than a foot of snow in a twenty-four hour period.  In some parts of the world that would be next to nothing, but in Utah that's almost miraculous.  In Utah, getting anything other than sunshine coming down from the sky is almost miraculous.  So because of all the snow, the schools delayed starting by two hours yesterday.  The kids weren't excited about having two hours in which they were completely ready with nowhere to go, they were a little miffed that they had to have school at all.

My husband took the two older children to school and got stuck trying to get out of the driveway.  It took twenty minutes to get them on the road.

I really hate driving in the snow.  I go so slow the drivers behind me think I'm a ninety year-old.  And because I also hate getting stuck, I got my youngest child to help me shovel the driveway.  Let me just say that my muscles are still upset about being used.

Anyway, snow.  What a great way to start the new year.  Right? (I'm trying really hard not to be sarcastic.)  Ahem.  Yay snow!

(At least I don't live there!)
