Autumn is a season for counting our blessings. For realizing just how much we have in life where so many others are without. It can often be easy to take things for granted. Things which millions of people desperately dream of having. By pausing for a moment, and looking around with mindfulness, we can find a new center. Begin with fresh energy.
Artwork takes us on this journey of appreciating the beauty in every day. The shimmering violet of a flower’s petal. The rich glow of autumn foliage. The masterpiece of a luminous sunset.
Poetry shimmers with vision. The delicate parasol of Queen Anne’s lace. The coy flirtations of a luminous moon. The charcoal tears of raindrops in dust.
Fiction draws us in to worlds which could easily be our own. A grandmother whose memories gambol and fade. A woman who relives the fears of a long-distant past. A young man who treasures every day he has left to him.
Non-Fiction invites us into a fellow traveler’s world. A woman meets her adopted daughter for the first time. A brother comes to terms with the untimely passing of a beloved sister. A woman’s life takes a detour which strengthens her courage. A young girl survives a tragic accident and realizes she’s lucky to be alive.
We are all on this big blue marble for the fleetest of moments. A few whirls around a star and our journey is complete. There is so much to treasure in every day. There are so many fellow humans we can gently touch and lift up. If only with a smile – if only with a kind word.

Book 8 in my zoo cozy mystery short story series is going live! This one’s set at the Tampa zoo; I visited there with my sister. The cutie is a bontebok. Next up in this series will be the trip I made with Bob and James (and James’ girlfriend) to the Capron Park Zoo in Massachusetts :). That’s where Bob took that award-winning snake photo. Hmmm … maybe the plot should feature the snake …

I’m nearly done with the re-polishing of book 7 in my cozy zoo mystery series. The narrator is all ready to start on it the moment it’s ready! Here’s book 1 for free, to see what this series is like :).
What are you guys working on today?
Just so happy. My amazing narrator for my cozy zoo mystery series just finished up book 6, The Minuscule Mouse. It should be going live soon. You should be able to listen to book 1 for free with the free Audible trial to see what she sounds like. She does an awesome job with the accents and voices!
I just added my Aries fantasy and Manchaug historical fiction to Wattpad – That makes 21 stories there. Take a look! They’re all free to read on Wattpad :). Are any of you guys on there?
I just made a minor tweak to my FREE Massachusetts murder mystery. One of the benefits of self-publishing is you can tweak for as long as you wish :). It’s loading live! I’ll give a free ebook of mine of your choice to any of the readers who have the existing copy, if they can spot what geographical mistake I made somewhere in chapters 1-10 :). It’s probably something only Suttonians would spot …
Just reloaded books 6 & 7 in my Native American short story series for some minor tweaks. Try book 1 for FREE!
