Over-wintering

Hello Dear readers,
‘Irreplaceable’ is coming along nicely.. the first chapters have been sent off to my beta readers.The story seems to be meeting with their enthusiastic approval, thank goodness. I trust my readers’ opinions. If the new story, this one all about Rose, didn’t tickle their fancies I’d stop and seriously consider whether to continue. But, so far so good.

A few nights after my husband and I moved into our compact, new,… Continue Reading
