Well after a week without internet, or rather, intemittent internet, I'm back. I can hear the cheers from here. Silent cheers, but I can hear them! I've been writing, writing writing and now "Diamonds of Ice," the fourth Department 57 book, is almost ready to go. And - a new release next month! WILDFIRE, the first in a short series about a shapeshifting rock band. I loved writing this book, and it has my heart. I write to music, I love it, and for the most part, it's hard rock. The energy drives me, the passion fuels mine. So it was pure pleasure to write this.
