We recently had a new addition to our family – a Siberian Husky.
Life in our home has certainly changed due to this one and half year old pet that my son has adopted. I’m certainly getting more exercise with needing to take her for frequent walks. Better yet, with her energy, she is walking me.
We have only had her for a few weeks, but she already has become a family member. Amazing how quickly we all fell in love with her.
I read a quote the other day about dogs and their personalities that I found interesting.
“A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones.” – Arthur Conan Doyle
I wondered if there is truth to this statement? As a new dog owner, I went to “Cesar’s Way” website and found this article written by Nicole Pajer that says what your dog’s behavior says about you.
Another year has passed, and now I’m looking forward to focusing on 2014 and the wonderful things it will bring into my life.
This year, I plan to publish three books. I’m excited to be working on book two of the Thoughtmover series that will be released in the fall of 2014. I’m working on a romance novel as well and the release of the prequel to The Alkahest, book one of the Thoughtmover series titled, The Master’s Arcanum.
I want to thank my web-designer for his great job in 2013, and I’m looking forward to another year of working together with him on my website and cover designs.
Other thanks goes to my husband who continually supports me in my writing, a special man that I am blessed to have in my life.
And more thanks are extended to you, my readers who make it possible for me to live my dream of writing and bring you enjoyment in the process. To all of you, have a happy and triumphant New Year!

I had my first radio interview today at one of the local radio stations, CKWR – FM 98.5. I want to thank my host, John Maciel for inviting me to his show to talk about my recently published book, “The Alkahest.” Thanks to Harry Rauser as well for the programing.
We talked about my steps into a writing career, the books I’ve written and published, and touched on the future of my writing. If you’re interested, the interview will be available to hear on the “About Author” section under “Interviews.”

Today was a special day for me – my fantasy novel, “The Alkahest” was published!
This book has been a long time in the making – many years in fact and to finally have it published is a dream come true. The characters are dear to my heart, and it’s a privilege for me to share their story with you. The epic fantasy was initially written as one long story, which I have broken down into numerous books. The Alkahest is the first of the Thoughtmover series, starting the characters off on their extraordinary journey.
My web-designer and I worked many long hours on designing the map of where the story takes place – The Land of Kaldanien. It went through several iterations over a period of a year until we were satisfied with the end product. Likewise with the cover, which also went through numerous iterations.
A few people were instrumental in helping me to ready my book for publication. I would like to thank them for their help.
My web-designer, Alex for his great work and long hours on the website, book cover, and map.
Pat LuBruto, my New York editor for his outstanding editorial skills and helping me to become a better writer and for allowing me to keep my own writing voice throughout the process.
My characters who inspired and guided me down this enjoyable and rewarding path of writing.
I’m currently working on book two of the Thoughtmover series that continues my characters’ epic journey, which I look forward to sharing with you in 2014.
