Happy New Year!

Saturday, December 31, 2005

2005 is going out on a quiet note for me as I fell sick last night. I had been at a function earlier in the week where someone was sicker than a dog so naturally I had to catch the bug. While I don't plan to stay up to watch the new year in, I do plan on mixing my OJ with champagne.

2005 was a very good year for me so I'll say adieu to it with thankfulness. I got to work with a fabulous group of authors on the Madonna Key continuity. I have great friends and critique partners. I have a fabulous agent who always knows the right thing to say to me when I get nerves about how a book is going.

2006 promises to be another good year as I'm gainfully employed as a writer with 2 new legal thrillers to write. Then there's the day job that keeps the roof over the house.

But this year also brought into the void in life left by the death of my parents my dog Maddie. I hadn't had a dog since I was a kid, didn't know if I would like having one after years of being a cat person, but someone abandoned this lovable bundle of energy and she's mine now.

Together we'll ring out the old and ring in the new.
