I've let this blog go because I've been keeping one on WordPress. (It's called Author Spotlight.) I'm not sure whether to merge them, or keep a separate blog here. Decisions, decisions... Stay tuned for details!

December Ramblings

December 13, 2015
Time has really not been my friend this year. I have had so many projects that I've been excited about, but one thing after another held them back from getting published, be it a fugitive illustrator, or a decision to start a book over in a whole, entirely different style. Enough of that! 2016 Is going to be a year where you will here LOTS from me!!! In fact, if you look around my website, you will find a FREE short story, just in time for Christmas! You can download it as soon as I can get t...

I am excited and proud to be part of a project called the Northbound Writers Anthology. There are about 20 of us local authors, corralled by Professor Bob Comenole, who will be contributing our diverse writings to this book. We have sci fi, poetry, personal memoirs, war stories, historic fiction, flash fiction, and much more! I can't wait to tell you more about it, as it is coming together very quickly! It'll be available in time for the holidays. So, woo-hoo!

Details soon...

Dear Readers:

Usually, by this time of year, I'm happily planning ahead for all the authors fairs, craft fairs, library events and farmers markets that are abundant in the spring, summer and autumn months. Unfortunately, due to events and changes in my personal life, I probably will not be making many, if any, appearances this year. There's still a new book coming by year's end. I'll keep you informed of places you can buy it.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Closing out the Year

December 10, 2012
Getting ready to say goodbye to 2012. It's been a great year, full of fun, creativity and making new friends. I hope 2013 is even better. Things are certainly looking optimistic... I've FINALLY procured an illustrator for "Too Many Kitties." She'll be able to start work after the New Year. Perfect! Please check my blog and my Twitter for updates.

Have a wonderful, happy, merry Christmas, everyone!

Awesome time in Oswego!

October 28, 2012
Had a great time at the River's End Book Store in Owego, NY yesterday. It was officially billed as "An Afternoon of Horror." This was a multi-author event, also attended by fellow authors Joseph Sweet, Nancy Henderson and a very interesting new acquaintance, Alycia Ripley. She'd just returned from a book tour in Australia. Now THERE'S something to aspire to! She was able to share lots of revelations about the publishing industry and the constant flow of changes in this digital age. Actually, ...

Spooky Time!

October 3, 2012
Well, October is here, and in keeping with my yearly tradition, my front lawn looks like a graveyard. The skeleton is hanging out of the wishing well.Spiderwebs, witches and ghosts adorn my porch windows.  I still need to get some pumpkins. It's looking very spooktacularly festive at the Gaskin residence! 

Looking forward to the Appleumpkin Festival at Flower Memorial Library this Saturday. I've known about it for years, but this is the first year I'm able to take part. I'll be there, signing ...

Fall is Here!

September 26, 2012
My favorite season is upon us... autumn, beautiful autumn! I'm looking forward to seeing the changing leaves and feeling the crisp, cool air on my face. And, of course, October means Halloween! I get to get out in the world and promote "Tricked" as though it were a new book! Yay! Please check out my "appearances" page to see where I will be.

Be well... I'll try to update more often.
