The Coronavirus Detour

Oh, dear. I haven’t written a post for a really long time. I’d blame the pandemic, but my last post was in 2018. That’s awful. But after surviving the pandemic, I kind of don’t care. I don’t think you do, either. Luckily I did a fair amount of writing on my books in 2019. Luckily, because once the Coronavirus hit, my writing took a huge detour. Actually, it hit a brick wall. I hardly got anything done and was so easily distracted I just sort of gave up on the whole endeavor. Some bad things happened to me and my family in 2020, too, so maybe it’s just as well I didn’t produce anything then. I don’t want to be reminded of that crappy year in any way, shape, or form. We even put off buying a new car so it wouldn’t be from 2020. Why did we need a new car? Well, that was part of the crappy year – my husband totaled our best one going to pick up Chinese food. Apparently, according to every single person working the scene that I encountered that night, were in agreement: my husband was lucky to be alive. So that’s one good thing to come out of that year. There were other good things, but all in all, I just want to leave it behind. There were some big, bad things that happened, and I say, good riddance to that year.

On the plus side, I have started working again and am about to publish a new book. It’s the first of an odd romance series (the characters are all a bit different). Will it catch on? I have no idea. The books are stand-alones, so that’s something. If the first one is a miss, I can stop writing them and no one will be left hanging. There’s something to be said for that.

So that’s it. I’m not sure why I bothered writing this post since I’m pretty sure no one reads them, but there it is. My first published words in two years. Wahooie.

One last thing: May the 4th be with you.


I’ve just released my latest book from the Pandora Belfry Adventure Series! Pandora Belfry is probably my favorite character to write. In fact, I really enjoy all the characters in the books. It’s best to start at book one (Mayhem at Nepenthe Manor), and go from there. You will find mischief, mayhem, mystery, and more!

Check it out!
