~~~ Spring is Here! ~~~

I always feel a renewed sense of hope, of wonder and possibility when those wonderful signs of Spring begin to make their presence known.

Yesterday my husband and I took our Lab up into the foothills of the beautiful Manzano Mountains and let her run. She loves our sojourns into the higher country. She gets to sniff, and poke, and explore to her heart’s content. The sun was shining. There was a strong but comfortable breeze. The temp was around 70. I saw definite signs of budding on the vegetation all around me. A jack-rabbit made his presence known about 30 feet down in an arroyo. Luckily the dog didn’t notice him, or our outing might have been longer than we’d planned. J

It feels as though my writing ideas and energy begin to bud and stretch as freely as the cactus and juniper when Spring comes. What seemed so difficult and remote in the end of January, is somehow completely assessable now that the out of doors is coming back to life.

I have a meeting this morning with my editor from Siren Audio studios. http://www.sirenaudiostudios.com/ We’re converting one of my contemporary paranormal romances into an audiobook. This particular company doesn’t just have someone read the work, they have multiple voices, sound effects and music. This is audio theater -- similar to the radio shows of the 1940s. It’s an exciting process. Can’t wait to hear those characters come alive, for real!

‘til next time,
