Welcome 2017

There’s nothing like an over-abundance of holiday chocolate (okay, specifically, the consumption of said chocolate) that makes me happy to see a new year roll around. Yes, turning the page of the calendar can give us the sense of a new beginning, but I for one am glad to slam the door on 2016 and get a move on with 2017.

I know I’ll be in very good company with the notion of getting a “move on” when I go to the gym in the morning and see a very full parking lot. The first few weeks of January will be ripe with resolutions. The path to February will be filled with good intentions — unless some determination accompanies those New Years resolutions.

Will ample determination accompany mine? On January 3rd it’s easy to answer that it does and it will, but I’ll let you know how I fared when we get to February.  🙂

In the meantime, I wanted to pass along something fun that I’m involved in:  I and a number of other authors from a mix of genres (Mystery, Thrillers, Romance, Sci-Fi, Fantasy — you name it!) have teamed up to help you find some great new reads–many at 99¢ like the second book in my Working Stiffs Mystery series, Sex, Lies, and Snickerdoodles.  Click this link or click on the image below to take a fun quiz and enter to win some fabulous prizes! http://www.litring.com/giveaways/ Who knows, you might just discover your new favorite author!


I wish you good health and great happiness in the New Year. In fact, a toast to us all with that healthy looking cup of tea!

Happy reading!
