I'm still here reading every day, but I haven't blathered much. I'm basically working two jobs now, plus continuing to work on my third novel--close to 200,000 words and counting.
Retiring from my last job and starting my own business was one of life's surprising benefits. (And yes, former co-workers, despite what you might have been told by some less than trustworthy sources, I did retire. Catch me sometime if you want me to prove it to you.)
