Here we are at the close of 2017–a year of adjustment without my husband who took his last breath on December 28, 2016. I have done a lot of traveling to visit family members and meet three little great grandchildren newly born. Determined to get back in the writing groove, I explored the state of Iowa, accompanied by my son, where book number two takes place. An entire draft of that work is now complete, in the process of being edited once more, and then on to publishing. I am zeroing in on a title. Will keep you posted.
