Life keeps getting better

I’m so lucky. I know some women get to this stage of life and fall into depression.  Their children gone and living away from home.  Often it’s near the end of their career. Sometimes they find themselves alone with their husband and can’t remember why they married in the first place. But that hasn’t happened to me.

My children are grown, but they are doing great. LJ married and self supporting – a wonderful thing to say for a grown child. Mollie has one more year in college and it still delighted with her career choice – even if I’m not. They are both happy and than makes me happy.

Because I found the blogging world a few years ago, I came out to Nick and we have been closer than I ever imagined. All this is wonderful and that would really be enough. But it’s even better.

Yes one career is ending soon, but because so many of you came here and told me I could write, I actually began believing you. I got the edits for the third Cassie book today and it was just like opening a present. I’m so excited to get this one ready to publish. I think it should be out next month and I’ll have the actual date soon. I also got my first ever check from my publisher not long ago – talk about feeling like a real writer!

For everyone who has read Cassie’s Space and Cassie’s Tale I want to give you a huge

  

I’ll be back later this week to tell you about book number three.
