Lest you think I've been sitting around eating bonbons instead of writing, I'm here to say "nope." There has been a lot going on at the desk in the photo on your right. I received the critique of my midgrade historical novel from Stacy DeKeyser (www.thejustifiedline.com and www.stacydekeyser.com). She identified areas I can tighten and rework and I've been busy doing just that. I continue to enjoy and learn from my interactions with people in the Pedro Pan community and hope to have a final draft for their review in 4 weeks. Wish me luck.
