I want to wish a Happy New Year to all my readers, especially those that are here after my hiatus. I had difficulty doing any posting and finally discovered my computer was to blame. But I was given a new computer for Christmas (and my birthday) and here I am, ready to go.

I've discovered that after two months of not writing I'm pushing a boulder up a hill to get started again. One part of me wants to lay around and watch TV instead of work like I used to. But I am encouraged by my sister, Retta Stephenson, who entered an incredibly challenging feat where she is painting a painting each day for the thirty days of January. It puts me to shame. I've turned off the TV and started working on my story, Gemini, Chronicles of the MacKenzie Clan, Book 2. This WIP was stalled but now that I have my new computer I'm starting it up from where I left off - chapter 13. Thank you, Retta!
