Water-colour origins?

After reading the book The Apiary, by Alfred Neighbour, I am now intrigued with this painting from the 1870s. I’m afraid my search through Google has only linked me back to the book, so now, I’m left even more curious.

If you happen to know something about this piece, I would be thrilled to hear from you.

Two Xmas Favorites

Was your holiday an enjoyable one? I hope so. Our Christmas morning was filled with surprises and good cheer- and I felt like a spoiled kid. 🙂

Here are two gifts that I adore; a Scentsy Burner that is absolutely gorgeous- from my son and daughter-in-law, and a novel- from my sister, by author Nadia Hashimi called, The House Without Windows.

This photo doesn’t do this burner justice. It is so lovely.
novel
We enjoyed “Tea & Comfy” at 8 am on Christmas morning; I highly recommend it. That’s the book mentioned above. It hooked my attention straight away. 🙂

Left

Well, there were a number of surprises along the way as I wrote my story, Left. In fact, although the story centers around Phia, her friend Sabi has become a new inspiration for a new story line. Her character has been a lot of fun developing and I certainly think she deserves her own piece of the pie.

Sabi’s life is percolating in the background as I finalize my current projects. I’ll keep you in the loop as it evolves further. 🙂

The View From Here

Paper. That’s what the view is from here. The good news is that the pile is getting smaller each day, so the books are coming soon. My novella, Left, and two Kindle Short Reads; Awake and Just Call Me Spy, will be available for purchase, on Amazon, this fall.

Also, I’m thrilled with the twists and turns my story, Left, has taken. Wait until you meet Sabi. 🙂

In the mean time check out my Facebook page for updates or join me over on Pinterest.

Enjoy your fall!
