It may look like I’m  in my office, but I’m actually living in 1960 rural North Carolina (only with air conditioning). I’m working like mad, so excuse me if I’m quiet on the blog for a while. I’ll see you next time I visit 2012!

Like the view? We just got in from the Surf City (NC) pier, where John filmed surfers and I snapped this shot with my phone. I’m allowed to play when I finish 4000 words each day. Deadline’s coming! But the real point of this post is to remind my readers that I have information on…

My favorite day of the year! After twelve months of plotting, writing, rewriting, and rewriting again, here it is: The Good Father!
