Almost at the big 200!!! #amwriting

Just looked at my blog count. This is blog number 191, so closing in on my big 200!!!! What should it be? How should I celebrate a big number like that? Well hopefully I will be announcing the release of The Homework Goblin. Or at very least revealing the cover. That might be a bit closer, because realistically I will reach that number next week! So look forward to that, I know I will.

Just a quick one today, it’s been a crazy weekend. The girls are currently at their second birthday party. They have had swimming and the usual weekend stuff to do as well. I am about to head off to a monster sized baby shower. Which I find funny. I had my kids before most of my friends, so they weren’t really into that sort of thing when it was my turn. Mine was a small and simple affair. Yet I have since been to quite a few over the top ones. Not complaining, just and observation. I am glad we had our kids when we did. Soon I will have two at school and life will be a bit less hectic for the next few years. My two are also close enough that their sports practices are all at the same time, games generally one after the other. All of which makes life a bit more manageable.

Okay on to writing – which is why I am here. My chapter book is closing in on a finish. I am hopeful to have completed the draft of Obi the Super Puppy and the Quest for the Last Laugh by the end of the week. Which means I still have a week or so of March to do some editing! I have other editing to do as well, so that’s looking good. May actually have some more publishable books by the end of the year. I am also selling Ghostnapped and Obi the Super Puppy and the Mystery of the Red Mist at my girls’ Earth fair this weekend. Which will be lots of fun! What else??? Not really sure at the moment, my brain is in overload.

Finally Stitch Says is open once again for author interviews and reviews. Contact me at: to get started! Until next time – have fun!

Day 1 Ultimate Blog Challenge


Let the fun begin, 31 blogs in 31 days – well that is the goal and I’m sure I can do it with some help from my girls! Well okay normally they are not exactly a help, but school goes back next week and the little one starts kindy! So I will actually have some spare time. What to do with myself, ha, the list keeps getting longer. However blogging is on there, so I’m sure it will happen.

My next character – Stitch!

My little one suggested I blog about lollypops today, but I thought it best to introduce myself and my reason for joining the challenge. I am a mother of two highly strung, over-confident girls, who works part time for Labs ‘n Life (more about that later) and in my spare time or lack of, I write children’s novels. So far despite my hectic life I have had two books published, you can see the links on this blog. I am currently editing one, illustrating (with my girls) one, and writing two more books. Some of my goals over the next month involve my writing. Others are more personal. Now that it is finally spring I am going to use the next month to clean out lots of things. That means, my house, yard, computer, writing folders, oh yeah and hopefully my brain!!! Mind, body and soul! That’s my goal for the challenge. Okay now back to the writing goals. My aim is to illustrate my next book, and submit for editing. Complete the edit on the other manuscript and finish the other two first drafts. Sounds like a lot, but I’m sure I can do it and blog at the same time. I also have to work, and am entering an essay into Tales 2 Inspire, but I like to set my goals high. Hopefully this all makes for entertaining blogs. While I’m at it I will also be launching a new blog this week – Stitch Says is my blog for author interviews and reviews, contact me if you would like either. Until tomorrow, have fun!
