I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! And A Blessed New Year!!!
I was not sure where to start, I kept getting sidetracked with life. I didn’t have time to make an image for you……
Here I go…
This is my favored time of year for many reasons Such as: The weather and the fact that I love the holiday season. Thanksgiving through New Year’s… All because of: the giving, sharing, thankfulness, anticipation of new, beginnings, joy, and so much more in the air. I love the lights, the trees, the food, and most of all the family you generally get to spend time with. Family, close friends and relatives.. (Usually)
Sadly though, this time of year brings stress, anger, and loneliness to a lot of people. This is the first year in a a couple of years I have not felt so lost in emotions…. We all worry about if we have enough time to do what we want to do, do we have enough money, will our friends and families enjoy our efforts. And then there are those of us who do not have the pleasure of having people in our lives to share this time with and it brings out anger, resentment, and deepens the loneliness and pain. I know this all too well over the past few years for sure. They have been hard… I barely celebrated. But there is something really special. No matter what every Christmas Eve.. I get filled with this amazing peace and my heart fills with unexplainable thankfulness and all. I find myself staring at the Christmas tree and or lights for hours not thinking anything just in awe… It all started when I awoke from the coma in 1997 Just 2 days before Christmas… Maybe because of the many close encounters with death I am more sensitive to the holidays… This year it wasn’t my closeness with death that was faced. I lost my oldest brother to cancer…. But then in November my youngest sister Got married…. Such a wide variety of emotions…. I know for many this was a very hard year, but many of us have been blessed despite the troubles… Such as my parents finding a house after almost 4 years of searching… It never amazes me what God can do….. I know next year I and many others, feel it will be a year of closure and togetherness.. I am looking forward to that tho I feel the past few years have gone by way to fast… I hope to share some good things with you in the future tho. Like some books in the next year!!!
I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! It is not about the Receiving, it’s about the joy of togetherness, the Giving of love and companionship… So many I know have been blessed with wonderful mates while others are still alone.. Our time will come singles! God’s timing is perfect and He or she will be exactly what we need… And more then we could ever want!!
This was supposed to be a sweet note of love, sorry I went on… I pray if you don’t know Jesus yet you take the opportunity to ask into your heart tonight… Don’t waste time waiting for the right moment or to be perfect. He loves you as you are and there is no better timing then now… Having a relationship with Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit is the best Gift I could share with anyone… God after all gave the best Gift Jesus… And that is what Christmas is all About… Celebrating his Birth, His life, and His Death so that we may be free of the chains of sin and be blessed with Eternal life!!! It’s easy just read this out loud.
“Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge I need you. (You do need Him) I welcome you Jesus into my heart, for you are the way and the truth and the light. (John 14:6) Please forgive me of my sins and be a part of my life form now on.. Thank you Amen” Now go tell someone what you did.
The devil comes to steal form you, to Kill you, and to Destroy you, but I come to bring you life and to bring it Abundantly.
You are Loved,

I’m back home and off to work.
My sisters wedding was beautiful. I was very happy to have spent time with all the family. It was a small but wonderful wedding, one of the best I have been to! Plus it was a mini family reunion! She is so blessed so many people wanted to be there for her joyous day. The only thing missing were my brothers and aunt Christine. I still fel sad that Shane is now in heaven. But I know he is in a better place and I will see him again one day. I just hope he was able to look down and see her day.. Funny, I always though that line was a little cheesy, never thought it was possible. I mean I know they are always wit us.. Bit to say that myself… I feel the dept of those words… Pardon me while I go cry…
My Sister Amelia and I have come a long way in our relationship. I realized we both were a bit envious of each-other.. Silly how envy can tear people apart. I am so happy for her, beyond words. I think both my sisters are blessed with wonderful husbands! Now it’s my turn.. (I know, when the time I right I will have mine. I am not in a hurry!) My nephew was a doll!! I adore him… I miss him tons. I can’t wait till I see them next time!
I’m sorry I meant to keep this short. Last thing….
My files are a mess on the computer and in hard copies, andmy net is limited…. Thank God I have my computer back tho. I can’t wait to finish some of these books… I am so grateful that have the time and help when I need it. I have a bad habit of jumping in headfirst and catching up latter… Now her I am back to work and regretting my quick filing system. I have a lot of organizing, updating, formatting rearranging and lots of writing to do. Where is that personal assistant I’ve been meaning to find… lol… I would love to have an office to go to: with a huge desk, multiple display monitors, several computers, and a staff to help me. Maybe one day? Till then I have a apt, with a small office, 2 filing cabinets full of research and hard copies print0uts of my work, a Great Dane who is leaning when to settle down while I work… Mom said shes never met a Great Dane so hyper… God knew what I needed tho, I would be so bored and lonely with out her. I have a demanding but wonderful neighbors. I love the new place now, tho I have only been actually home here 1 moth, its like living in a yearlong vacation spot out of a book I’d read… So many wonderful wildlife, and I’m up high, so I have great views all around me… Thank you so much for sticking with me and continuing to support me with encouragement and pushing me to work… I have so many books in progress, I’ve narrowed it down to just 3 for now till they are finished…. God bless you all, and I pray you have favor in all you do!

Hello My Dear Friends,
I am so sorry it has been a while almost three months since I have posted any news or really worked on my books. You see.. My family and I have been hit with a lot of things. Finances; Vehicle troubles; My baby sister’s new baby; Hose work, errands, re- doing my room (yes – after a year it is still a work in progress); Romance problems; The Swine Flu; Misunderstanding with a few Friends, and of course some Deaths: A Friend, My Grandpa, and then Our dog.
*sigh* I have been meaning to write I started a few journals but I didn’t know what to say and to be honest I really didn’t want to write.. I was doubting my dreams. Thinking about all the things I have wanted to do and does’t seem to be happening. I am 28 single for three years, no children.. I have 4 cats, 1 bird, my and my 2007 nitro… I watch my nephew five days a week, and pet and house sit when I can.
I have been so wrapped up in not having what I really want (A Husband, yes I like some one. I need to get the courage to tell him.) And not doing anything worth wile in a while I forgot all I need to do is get off my ass and do it. So the past three months I have been doing just hat. Getting things done at my Church, helping my family more, and my friends and doing every thing but writing and my room..
The good news: We are getting a new puppy as soon as he is old enough next month!! Our Life group is going well, I have a steady flow of money again, I am working out again, I am keeping up with the chores, I have new determination, and most of all – Conner is taking 1 long nap a day where I get time to write now! Woot!! Praise God!
So this month coming I promise to write more and to get my ass in gear and finish my room, well at least get it as close as I can to an office till I can afford new tile and paint.. I got a new door this weekend!! Thats a start!!!
I am still hoping I can find an artist to turn my books into comics as I write them, of course I would share the royalties, but no one has had the time because most the authors I like have a busy life right now as well.. I think I will hold a contest in a month or two as I get more of my main books done..
Again I am sorry I have been away, though I don’t really think I have any serious fans yet… If you read this, thank you!
God bless you today and always!

Just a quick update. I am out of town. My grandpa was extremly ill, and passed away Sunday. I came to Washington State form Florida. To say good bye, and stay for a family gathering.
I brought my laptop and books, because I thought I would have lots of time to write. But no time has come up where I am in my right mind. So I am sorry for the delays but no new chapters for awhile. Maybe some time this week I will get some work done. I feel like a zombie going through the motions most the time.
Any ways please make sure to leave comments, notes, feedback. I want to get your input. Good and Bad. It is still very raw, I do not have an editor yet. I am hoping my friend Karlin and Tony may help. We shall see.
“Grandpa Guy I will miss you! I look forward to seeing you in Heaven one day though! ”
Take care, hugs!
