Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by!

The holidays are almost upon us, so I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa to all. We celebrate Christmas and I still have a ton of wrapping to do..oh what fun! Thank goodness I'm a pro. at it!

I had an exciting week in books, because I received a fantastic surprise, when I opened my finished copy of Blood Winter and loe and behold I was quoted! My first quote in a book! Super exciting, since I am a huge fan of the Horngate Series, and everyone should check it out! I also went on another buying spree, because of all the great sales on Amazon.
