Mom in Her Writing Nook ...

She was working on the "About the Authors" section of "Echoes Across the Blue Ridge" when I captured this one morning. Though you can't see it, her coffee cup was within gentle reach that morning. Roxie is at her feet.

Cries lost on the wind

My book is late. It's a long, sad story, but it will be available at http://www.murderasacalltolove.com soon. Actually the website is up and running, and I'm blogging there.

Late autumn so persistent
