News from the Mountain

part 1 and 1

School has started in my neck of the woods, causing me to wonder what happened to summer?

An injured back, back surgery and recovery ate up most of my time these past few months. I’m grateful to say the surgery went well and the recovery is also coming right along.  I still have several more weeks before I am entirely released to do everything I could do to injure my back in the first place.

I’m happy to report during my downtime, Junction Publishing, my publisher and I worked hard to make Deadly Friend into a great read. I’m so excited Deadly Friend will be released on September 10th.

This work also got my creative juices flowing again, and I now have a work in progress, but not a thriller this time.  As this project comes together, I will release more information.

Another aspect of my life that was put on hold, while I was not allowed to drive or even ride in a car, was my photography. Many of you know from my Facebook page, how much I love my camera. I do have a separate site, if you are interested in seeing some of my favorite shots.  Seems mother nature doesn’t like to cooperate as since I got my wheels back, we are fogged in till almost noon, or it’s raining.  I hope for better weather so my camera and I can spend more time together.

I often wonder why I have lived in so many places during my life and over the last few months, I have come to the conclusion it was all leading up to my life here in the North Georgia Mountains. This place has allowed me to come to terms with my life, peace has filled my soul. Although I still have that wanderlust, as there is so much in this world I have not seen as of yet, it’s not burning a hole in my heart.  I’m at peace to sit right here, write, take a few photos, watch the birds, read, listen to the quiet and breathe in the fresh air.

I don’t know what I did in my life to deserve such a beautiful place, but I’ll take it and sit right here and enjoy every minute. I can only hope I have many of those minutes remaining.
