       Despite three rainy days in Portland, we enjoyed our Columbia River cruise immensely. Great guides, great food as we followed the trail of Lewis and Clark and explored small towns along the river, my favorite being The Dalls where we were greeted by the town floozies, toured an interesting neon museum and visited the unusual Mary Hill museum in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately, a jet boat, not a ski, took us deep into the gorge for a close look at the Snake River. Loved it. Our next adventure will be to Mammoth Cave in August for a family get-together. It's so good to travel again.

       On the writing scene, Of Turtles and Doves, the next in the Longleigh Chronicles, has been edited and gone to the line editor. The book should be out in October, faster than I expected. Enjoy the adventures of Jason and Pandora as they find their mates in this 99,000 word double romance full of fun. Edie's Sinner, the next in the Sinner's Legacy series has been submitted to the publisher. It deals with some serious issues in sports, so I do not know if it will be accepted. If not, I guess it goes into the self-publishing pile, and I move on the final book of the series, The Last of the Sinners.

       Good news! Courir de Mardi Gras is now available on audio book, nicely read by Shirley McCoy. It is available on Amazon as an Audible book. Free if you subscribe. That makes three of my books now out on audio including Mardi Gras Madness and Goals for a Sinner. Making an audio is as hard if not harder than editing a book and requires hours of listening to hone out any mistakes. I think we got them all. It's a light mystery/romance, about eight hours of time. Give it a try.

        I'll be at the Hot NOLA Authors Event in Harahan, LA on July 30th from noon to six p.m. Free from one p.m. on but there is a VIP entry the first hour which includes a goodie bag and first chance to look at a varied selection of books, not only romance, by sixty authors. I understand there will be daquiris and food available, plus raffle baskets and vouchers for your choice of a free book. The venue is the Veterans Building, lots of parking--and no one has to drive in New Orleans traffic as it is out of the city. Hope to see some of you there.
