I’d like to wish you and the readers a Happy New Year. Thank you for having me on your blog today.
Well, it’s a New Year folks, and we all hope it’s a productive one for us authors.
Between the real life interferences and all those other little daily surprises, we all hope to have time to write our stories to thrill, or to chill, or give you the warm glow of a romance story and generally make you a happy reader.
My goal this year is to finish my new work in progress and get it published for your enjoyment. I don’t have a title for it as yet, but I’m sure it will give you a few chuckles.
Let me give you a little hint. It’s an old era western romance with a bit of rustling thrown in and a cute little critter named Beggar. Now you may ask what is this critter? Okay, you forced it out of me. Beggar is a ringtail monkey that escaped from a medicine show owner and decides to adopt a sheriff. Now, the sheriff is a tad afraid of critters but takes to Beggar. The only problem is, Beggar is a thief. Oh my! Maybe the sheriff’s love interest can help the poor man out.
Sorry, you’ll have to wait a while until the finished, polished novel is out. I’m having such fun with, writing, rewriting, and rewriting to give you a different set of characters thrown together in laughable situations. Hopefully it will be finished this year.
*Lorrie, I should hope so.*
Ah, that precious thing called time. In my letter to Santa I did ask for a clone of me. Alas, I guess Santa isn’t that scientifically advanced yet.
Or Morgan, a paranormal writer, running for her life on the Indian reservation in Arizona.
And while you’re here reading this, authors, please give me a hint about your present work in progress so we know what to look forward to from you.

Everyone has secrets.
Homicide Detective Rita Moldova has a secret, a crystal amulet from her Roma bloodline that shows her the last image a victim had seen before they died. Now, a ritual killer is terrorizing her town and the crystal’s magic has suddenly stopped.
FBI agent, Matt Boulet, is sent to lead the task force and gives the group strange orders. Worse, Rita senses he is holding back a deep dark secret about the killer.
When she confronts her seer mother’s advice, she learns another secret about their clan that she finds impossible to swallow.
Rita swims through a whirlpool of confusion as the investigation continues. Can Rita deny the lore of the ancients? Can she deny her growing feelings for Matt Boulet?
Gypsy Crystal is available in PRINT and Multiple E-book formats at Amazon
A short story and a roller coaster ride of thrills and chills.
Morgan is researching on an Indian reservation in Prescott, Arizona, for her new paranormal novel. She doesn’t believe in the paranormal, but writes it for the trend and the nice royalties. That is until her soon to be divorced husband tries to kill her, and she survives by her wits and a little “strange” help.

LOL! I LOVE the sound of your new story, Lorrie! How did you come up with that idea? Was it a monkey on TV or something? Is it under submission now? I hope so, it sounds great and I will definitely be picking up a copy. Great stuff!
As Lorrie said, we'd love to know what you're working on or your goals...over to you!
