Yesterday I asked the question, what have I been up to the last two and a half months?

The last part of May I spent most of that time wrapping up writing related business to prepare for our upcoming vacation. I also put together a Haunting Danielle Zazzle Store. The intent was not so much to try selling my readers stuff (although they can purchase at the online store), the primary purpose was to create some fun raffle prizes I could offer the subscribers to our newsletter.

The first part of June we were off to Minnesota for our family reunion. It’s our Talbot Reunion—that is my mother-in-law’s side of the family. We have been doing this every three years since 1983. We go somewhere different each time. The other locations we’ve been to include: Arizona, California, Oregon, New Mexico, Missouri, Colorado, South Dakota, Arkansas, Wyoming, Utah, and Montana. We always look forward to the reunion and catching up with our cousins. 

Our daughter was just a year old at the first reunion, and our son was almost four. The reunions forged close relationships with their cousins and second cousins, and now I am seeing the same thing happen with our grandchildren’s generation.

After the reunion we had visiting family for about three weeks—and I put the computer away and focused on what is truly the most important thing in life—family.

When the family finally went home I prepared for surgery. (Ugg) Fortunately, the surgery went well, and other than being tired all the time, I suffered no afterpain. Of course, it could be those meds I was on, which curbed the pain and made me tired.

The worse part of surgery, no swimming for 6-8 weeks. I live in Lake Havasu City, and it gets pretty hot here. Swimming is what we do in the summer. But no pool time or lake time for me. I’ve been spending all my hours indoors—either working on my book or sleeping.

I finished writing Book 22, The Ghost and the Halloween Haunt. It is currently in edit phase, and will be released the end of the month.

That about wraps up my exciting summer!

    Keep yourself well. I’m just being selfish, because I want you to keep writing for a long, long time!

    I hope you are continuing to recover and will be back swimming very soon!

    Please keep up the super Haunting Danielle series I just love them. I read the first 14 books during a two month visit with my Mom in Utah from my home in Ireland.

    Best regards

    I still like my idea of a spin off series, About Marie. Then we can see Walt’s life and Eva through a little girls eyes! Then we get a whole new Adam view point. Then the series will keep going and going! And Walt will live on forever.

      I have a number of spin off ideas! It is just finding the time to write them! Glad you are enjoying the series.

        I love the idea of a spin off series and the possibility of learning more about Walt, Marie and Eva’s early life. If that never happens and you can just carry on with the Haunting Danielle series it will keep you many fans very happy.
