Welcome!


Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm honored to be in the company of these impressive Five Star authors.

The title of my book is "The Charmstone" and it's a story of mystery, history and romance set in the Four Corners area of the Southwest. Specifically, the story takes place in beautiful Monument Valley, the most far-flung and remote part of the Navajo Reservation. I lived on the Reservation for a time as a VISTA volunteer and this book is inspired by my experiences there and the lovely people I met. "The Charmstone" comes out next spring, so please watch for it! My agent called to tell me she's already had a request to see it for film rights, so I'm very excited about that.

Living on the Navajo Reservation was only one of the things on my list of "100 Things To Do Before I Die." It's a list I began compiling a while ago, and I add things to it as they come to me. Other items on that list are seeing the Grand Canyon (I've just moved to Arizona, so haven't been there yet), going on a walking tour in Tibet , going deep sea fishing, working on an archeological dig (which I've done), going whale watching (which I've done), learning to line dance, and being an extra in a Cirque du Soleil performance.

But my list is far from complete, so if anyone has a suggestion, I'd like to hear it. Please tell me if you think of something interesting or exciting to do, and if it appeals to me, I'll add it to my list.

Please visit me often. The welcome mat is always out at my blog.

What can I say? It is wonderful to surround yourself with extremely strong, talented women - of which C.C. is one! This book will be a success not only because of the story it tells, but because of the story-teller!

OK, I have a not so funny story to tell...I used to work for a newspaper and we did a story about a helicopter service in Scottsdale that taught flying lessons. The owner said one of the top 100 things you need to learn is how to fly. The day after we ran that quote, one of the helicopters from that business crashed in Scottsdale. Pretty scary! Not that I'd let that stop me from trying things...flying a plane just isn't on my list...
