Hiatus Ending

Photo by Madison Inouye on

It’s been a long, painful spring. I lost one of the loves of my life, my kitty J. D. He fought until the very end and we tried everything possible, but the cancer got him. My hubby and best friend were with me as we all said goodbye and he died very peacefully in my arms.

the love of my life

I miss him beyond words and felt a very strange relief at his passing. For the past two years he’s gone downhill little bits at a time, and at the end, he was ready to go. We do have other furbabies to look after; but J. D. was special and sweet. He was my first boy.

Yesterday I spoke to a good friend of mine, a fellow author, who admitted that after his mother died, he’d lost the desire to write at all. I’ve been in this mood as well; even picking up a different hobby to fill the void. Every time I had an idea, it was fleeting at best and never even made it to paper or screen.

Given the past two years, I now understand that this is normal when going through stressful situations, grief, etc. J.D. is gone on to the wonderful afterlife at rainbow bridge and waits for me there. I promised him I’d live my best life here until we meet again and I intend to do just that.

That said, look for more of me on here, and a return to showing off my books and characters, and even a peek into what is coming next.

I appreciate everyone of you who reads this blog and my books very much!
