My goodness, it's hard to believe it's been so long since I last posted a comment here. That's what being busy does...
Art and I are feeling great sorrow at the passing of his wonderful uncle, Tony Fruci, who left our world, Tuesday, March 29. He was the sweetest, dearest man I know, and he loved his family unconditionally. My heart goes out to his sweet wife, Auntie Connie, as well as the rest of the family... daughters, Marilyn and Lorraine Eakin, who are like sisters to me, as well as Lorraine's hubby, Randy and their son, Scott.
Unc, I know you're now with our dear departed Cheryl, as well as my wonderful mom and dad, who thought the world of you.
Know that you will be sorely missed, but we'll all be together in Heaven one day. Rest in peace, dear heart...
Since I last posted here, I've been busy working on my final edits for the second children's book in my series Tommy's Amigo. I haven't submitted this yet for I want to go over one more time.
I have also completed a picture book titled Squiggles' New Home, which I may revamp, and another children's book based on my wonderful feline, Thomas Joseph. I haven't decided if I want to format this as a picture book or a middle-reader, and I'm still in the very rough stage with it now. I'll figure it out, I guess.
I've also been busy reading and writing reviews for ReaderToReader.com, which you can catch on their site, as well as New York Journal of Books. You can read my reviews for them here on my web page.
Art and I were in Florida in Jan. and when we got back he landed in the dentist's office with a nasty infected tooth, which unfortunately took the wind out of his sails. Thanks to heavy-duty antibiotics, he's just now getting back to himself.So, between, writing, reading and reviewing, and running around with Art, I've been keeping busy.
Dani has also been in our lives a lot and we're so greatly blessed to have such a wonderful daughter. She's doing wonderfully in her job and enjoys it enormously.
It's been a horrendous winter, and I wonder how I ever managed to live all those years in Massachusetts! I hate the cold and hate the snow, and Mother Nature sure has been crazy this year, but my lilacs are blooming as well as the trees and shrubs.
Give me a few months, and I'll be lamenting about the heat!
Meanwhile, I hope no one thinks I've forgotten about them by being so lax in writing this blog. It's been great to connect with all my friends and colleagues through email and Facebook and I'll try to write her more often.
Wishing you all a joyous spring!
