Looking Back at 2019 (and hoping it isn't chasing me)

2019 in Review

Well, it was A Year. 

I hope 2019 was kind to you. I hope you found joy and created things and made someone smile. I hope you laughed hard enough to snort a few times and that all your tears were the happy kind.

It was not my favorite year, to be honest. I lost my dear grandmother and faced some trials that stretched me to my limit.  But here I am, a little weary but still hopeful, determined to be and to do better in the days ahead.

In the midst of it all, I revised and edited 2 novels, wrote a few short stories, a couple poems, and most of another novel,  was published in Deep Magic's spring issue, and self-published a set of short tales about O'Neill (of The Mermaid's Sister). I met lots of nice readers at the book events I attended, and I had a great time with writer friends at the Realm Makers Conference and the St. Davids Writers' Conference. I drank a unicorn frappe (DO NOT ATTEMPT), explored imaginary caves and sculptural trees in St. Louis's City Museum, and spent a lot of time entertaining a toddler. (I'm a pro at Itsy Bitsy Spider and I can change a diaper fast as lightning, in case you wondered.)

So...

Here's to 2020, friends! I'm hoping for another published book, a trip to the seaside, and more time with those I hold dear.

Just for fun, here's a glimpse at the things I read this year! 





Happy 2020! May you be blessed and a blessing 
every day of the year!
