    Had a fantastic discussion of my book LOST IN THYME with the wonderful bookclub ladies of Houston.

    Having an amazing creative time during my residency at Art Omi:Writers this fall. International authors coming together, stimulating discussions, shared information and insights from agents and editors, fantastic guidance from staff, and above all an enchanting upper state New York setting in Ghent. Ideas flow, imagination soars and words find new meanings.
