Photobomber, Caramel Corn Celebration, and Zipline

    Dear Ones,

    I know you’re busy, but I also know you love good books and, bless you, my books, so I must share this news with you. THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM is on Amazon’s Best of the Year list! When you look at this list, your wallet will scream (with joy!) Twenty. Great. Books. And yes, you remember correctly — last year’s BECAUSE I’M WATCHING (now available in paperback) was also one of Amazon’s Best of the Year. When I wrote the Amazon editor to thank her, she said, “Thank YOU—marvelous books like yours is what makes the world a better place.”

    What did I do to celebrate? Let me put it this way — it’s hard to type with fingers sticky from the caramel corn!


    I did a quick video showing off my huge DEAD GIRL RUNNING poster, and someone had to get in the act. Hint: If you could zoom in, you would see blond dog hair all over my knees. Wait for it…

    Zipline Update!

    Husband: “I’m taking down the zipline for the winter. Do you want one last ride?”
    Me: “No, I’m still in my pjs and I’m really stressed and…Sure. Let me put on my bathrobe and slippers.”

    Ziplining: The cure for stress. (More treehouse/zipline.) Wishing you a stressless day with lots of time to read!
