Wrapping up the Year

December 22, 2011

2011 has been a busy year for me, and 2012 is going to be even more exciting! I’ve just finished writing a MacEgan Christmas anthology, tentatively titled Warriors in Winter, and I’m hoping it will be released next Christmas. I’ll also be writing a Viking series and a new series set in Regency Scotland during the time of the Highland Clearances. I’m excited to be exploring so many different time periods, and I only wish I could take another research trip to Scotland. My children, sadly, won out this year in their pleading for a trip to Disneyworld. We will be battling the crowds and enjoying Splash Mountain (my favorite ride) and Big Thunder Railroad while I’m dreaming of Highlanders and castles. 🙂

I’ll be traveling a lot next year, participating in the Romantic Times Annual Convention in Chicago this coming April. Then in July, I’ll be at the Romance Writers of America conference in Anaheim, CA. If you’re in either of those areas, there will be autographing events open to the public, and I’d love to see you there!

Holiday excitement is rising higher in our household, and yesterday my four-year-old son visited Santa Claus. The awe on his face as he petted Santa’s beard was heart-warming to watch, and every day he asks us when it will be Christmas morning. While he’s desperate for time to go by faster, I’d rather savor the moments when he’s little. To me, the holiday is even more special when I hear him singing “O Come O Come O Samuel” instead of Emmanuel and it’s entertaining to watch my older children decorate cookies loaded with frosting and sprinkles.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday season, and thanks for visiting with me!
