New Year and Some Fun News

To Catch a TreatHi, everyone.  Welcome to my first Writerspace blog of 2016.

This happens to be a very busy month for me.  Rather than at the usual holiday season, I just had family visiting me, including my two young grandsons.  They were around for two wonderful weeks in which I got little done but it was worth it.

Now, I’ve got to do some final edits on my second Barkery & Biscuits Mystery, TO CATCH A TREAT.  It’ll be published in May.

BitetheBiscuit200And my fun news?  You may have heard this before since I’m so happy about it that I have to keep talking about it.  The first in the series, BITE THE BISCUIT, is a finalist in the fiction category for the Maxwell Awards of the Dog Writers Association of America! Now, I love dogs and I love writing, so whether or not I wind up winning I’m really excited about being a finalist.  In fact, I intend to go to New York next month for the awards ceremony and so I can meet even more dog-loving writers.

The Ballad of Jack O'DairWhat’s my next deadline?  The third in the same series!

Meantime, the e-version of my time travel romance THE BALLAD OF JACK O’DAIR will be published in just a few days: January 25.  It’s been available for preorder for a couple of months and I’ve mentioned it before.

Hope you’re having a wonderful 2016 so far and that it just keeps getting better.
