Wherever you are, I hope you are seeing green! Not just for St. Patrick's Day but in the natural world around you. In Minnesota I'm still looking at dirty snow and brown grass, but it's warmer and the sun is shining. The promise of Spring has arrived! And the news from Wander Creek is good, too. The first books will be released soon, and last week I reviewed the cover for the third book. I can't wait for you to see it! In the meantime, you can escape to the small town of Wander Creek, tucked away in the great North Woods, with this excerpt from book one, A Place to Start.

What I Accomplished During Lockdown
I read recently about people who accomplished phenomenal things during lockdown, like losing 100 pounds or starting a life-changing business. At first glance, my big lockdown activities were eating badly and watching too much television. But the intangible and smaller accomplishments say just as much about ourselves as achieving major goals. So here's my list. Hit reply and give me yours!
Got to know my neighbors through driveway get-togethers and Zoom
Exercised virtually with my sister on a regular schedule
Indulged my love of letter writing by corresponding with senior citizens isolated in nursing homes
Started crafting, making pretty notebooks and notepads
Attended virtual classes on book marketing and virtual library events
Learned to enjoy a drive with no set destination
Of course, I also wrote and published my books. I wish I had gotten in better shape or learned a language. But I got through it, and that's the important thing. I hope you did, too.
I will visit your book club virtually to talk books and reading! As part of the prize all your members will receive an e-copy of the book of your choice. To qualify, just send me an email saying that you're interested, and I'll pick a winner at random and post on my Facebook page.
