Hurray!!! I'm finally entering the 21st century!

To those of you who swore it would never happen, it has! After many excuses and endless procrastination, I've finally made the leap into the world of blogs. Never one to even keep a diary, the whole idea of sharing personal feelings and observations with others is downright scary. My agent, my editor and most of all my children, however, have at long last convinced me that baring my soul does not have to be frightening. As one writer friend told me, it's actually cathartic and lots of fun! I sincerely hope she's right. So, starting today, Friday, August 10th, I'm making a pledge to share with you if you'll share with me.

I'll start off by saying that I live in Eugene, Oregon, with my husband Bob and Vizsla Beau (a Hungarian bird-hunting dog who is completely terrified by guns). Here's a picture of Beau sitting on Bob's lap -- where he can frequently be found. And yes, I'll admit that he's just a little bit spoiled, but he's also loving, active and ready for a good romp any time of the day or night.

We had a beautiful white cat named Fletch (after the Chevy Chase movies), but gave him to our daughter when Fletch protested (non-stop) about being on the road so much. He now reigns happily and majestically as King of the Hill at her home in northern California.

Speaking of being on the road, I'll be visiting Murder By The Book in Portland, Oregon, this Sunday from 4 to 6 pm. If you live in the area, please drop by and say 'Hi". (Check my events page for contact information) Bye for now!

Oh goodness you don't have to share your personal feelings on your blog! I rarely, if ever, share personal feelings on my blog, besides something like "I HATE MOTHS!!!!!1" and people seem to like it just fine.
