Some time ago, in a lifetime far far away, I had planned on having a blog. But there never seemed to be a good time to start one. Stuff to do and all that. Then my good friend Michelle Rowen went ahead and started one while she was writing her book. Then she got a book deal. Coincidence? Perhaps not.

Of course, she had written a book. And another, and another. So she's a few books ahead of me. No big. I have about 10,000 words in the crappiest first draft ever written before, but it's a start. Now if only I didn't need that day job so much, then I'd have a lot more time to work on my masterpiece.

Aden (my husband) is currently watching The Deep. Who needs to watch Oscar-nominated films when we have a classic like that in the cupboard? My life is complete.
