|It’s finally summer and the weather is great! As we all maneuver through the continuing pandemic threat, we can still celebrate our great country, our continued good health, and our fantastic families and friends.July is always a special month for me because it’s the month for multiple birthdays in my family. Although we have to celebrate most occasions this month by virtual meet-ups these days, we still have fun grilling our favorite foods and sipping cool drinks on the patio. I hope you take time to relax and mentally vacation from all the woes of the world. I intend to do just that – next month. So, there won’t be a Newsletter in August.See you in the Fall!|

Thank you for your continued encouragement and for enjoying the crazy, kooky, twisted characters that inhabit all of my stories. I would like to ask you again to consider leaving a review wherever you get my books. Reviews really are a major way to get the attention of advertisers and those who might be on the lookout for a new film project!
