In my last News I mentioned that I’d finally sent a new short story off to an editor and that I hoped she would like it. She did! I’m delighted to report that my story, currently titled BLUE CHRISTMAS, will be published in England’s Women’s Weekly Fiction Special on November 1, 2018. It’s been a while, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing one of my tales in print again. I hope my readers will like it too.
As we all know, it’s been an usually hot and smokey summer for a lot of Canada, and although I love the heat, my husband, Bob, doesn’t. Neither do his lungs. Consequently, we haven’t managed any holidays this year. However, I am hoping to spend a few days in Nanaimo in September when the Vancouver Island Romance Writers are holding a one day conference. This will fit in perfectly with a visit to my son, Nathan, and his wife, Barbara, along with their five cats. Yes, we have five grandcats. Their names are Selke, Oscar, Raven, Smuge and Luna. Our Baxter-dog wouldn’t approve if he knew, so I shan’t tell him.
Wishing everyone a cool and peaceful conclusion to our hot summer and a happy beginning to Fall 2018.
