I was on such a good run, posting every month...until I wasn't. What happened? Summer should be a slower time. More time to read, more time to write. But it didn't quite turn out that way. So despite daily reminders to POST SALUTATIONS, (yes, the reminders did shout at me) other stuff crowded out the … Continue reading Salutations July-August, 2021
Summertime and the livin' is easy... I have seen a fish jump and I have seen some corn that was way higher than my knee a whole week earlier than the 4th of July. I've got green tomatoes on vines and peppers ready to eat. And lots of happy blooms to enjoy! And oh my, … Continue reading Salutations, June 2021
I love May. It's the best dirty-fingernail time of the year when I get to plant my veggies and flowers amidst a curtain of green in every shade imaginable.
Oh how I love spring! My skin breathes for what feels like the first time in months, and I feel like sprouting out of my winter hibernation just like the buds that pop up in my garden.

Winter has never been my favorite season, but I have to admit I've rather enjoyed these winter months. We've hibernated, sure, but that's not so unusual for us in winter.

It's done! It's here! Well, the paperback is on Amazon now. And the Kindle version releases in just one more day, but you can pre-order now! And I am all atwitter! It's a thrill to see a book with your own name on it. And the thrill doesn't diminish I find, the second time you … Continue reading Home Place Hits the Shelves! November 18, 2020
I promised in my last post to say more about the setting for my latest novel Home Place, and I have LOTS to say because that Home Place is based on MY Home Place. Okay, let me be clear. I don't live there now. In fact, I haven't lived there for decades. But this particular … Continue reading The Actual HOME PLACE
How does time fly when a person barely leaves home? I don't know, but it does! There's no shortage of to-do's at Casa Crosiar - the start of a new semester (safely online), enjoying bright blooms, putting food by (the garden produced peppers and tomatoes in abundance!), laboring to understand how to promote a new … Continue reading Salutations October 2020
