Here we are - on the verge of ringing in 2008!
I'm happy to usher in a new year, but I gotta be honest ... 2007 was pretty damned good to me! My debut novel, QUAD, came out and it's quietly making its mark in the niche of Young Adult Literature. I met some new and dear friends this year, like Leigh Purtill and her husband Maurice who are absolutely and without question Da Bomb!! Check out Leigh's current and upcoming books right here on her website. And I've reconnected with old and dear friends - some, back in my life after a long-(twenty+)-year absence. That's one advantage us old farts have over teenagers - we get to wax nostalgic, which we know annoys you young-un's, but it's fun and amusing for us. Oh yeah ... I'm in a off-the-hook writers' group; my family, both immediate and extended, are healthy and happy; and my book garnered a few nominations during awards season, though time will still tell if any of that pans out. So, yeah. It's been a good year. May 2008 be nearly as kind!
And may the new year bring you all that your heart desires!
