The weather in Boston has been horrible, and we're in for even more. There will be about three storms this week. Yesterday's snow turned to a freezing, slushy rain which froze over the minute it started to get dark. It's not expected to get above freezing today, which means I'll probably be a shut-in until tomorrow. Friday will be warmer, then we'll get another storm on Saturday.

Somehow, I seem to have found my groove. I'm back to writing and it's going the way it should have gone over these past three years of trying. And how have I accomplished this? Damned if I know. I do have a few clues, though.

Hi Margy, thanks for friending me. Nice to meet another Boston area writer. What is your genre?
Thanks for befriending me here! I hope you'll put my upcoming March release, Deadly Currents, on your to-read list. Happy new year!
I like doing it myself too. I want to be able to control what goes out and how. Nothing wrong with traditional publishing I just want to be able to do it my way. Plus I'm having fun. What more is there? Haha...
Thanks for the friendship and the kind words. Podcast-related questions to follow once I get things started...
It can be a bit overwhelming around here at first, so if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
