Happy Spring! I can’t believe it’s almost April. We were snowed in much of January and February, so March has been a welcome change. I began the first weekend of spring by speaking about “The Search for Authenticity” in writing and really enjoyed it.  I’ll soon be in Nashville, Indianapolis, Seattle and other parts which is fun as I love to travel and meet fellow book lovers.

As we turn the corner on April, I’ll join a small group of hikers and Friends of Boone’s Trace to honor my hero, Daniel Boone, by hiking from Fort Boonesborough in Kentucky to Martin’s Station, Virginia. We’ll be walking about 17 miles a day for 150 or so miles on the original trace Boone carved out of the wilderness though today much of the trek is roadway. We’ll be passing by my cabin which is on the other side of Boone Gap. Though I can’t hike the entire 10 days I’ll be joining in for the first few and can’t wait!

As for book buzz, it’s been a joy to see The Mistress of Tall Acre well received and prepare for my next release in January, 2017. The cover shoot for A Moonbow Night is taking place this spring and will be finalized in June. Can’t wait to share it here. The plot pivots around a little known incident in Boone’s life that has fascinated me since childhood. Here’s hoping it intrigues you, too.

Last but not least, life at the cabin remains sweet. Despite the wild winds and critters that come from living in the woods on a rocky hilltop, it’s all good. Gooder than good;) More than anything, God is good and it’s a joy to see His hand everywhere I land. Here’s a view from the cabin porch of the last sunset of winter taken last weekend.

I can’t wait to see what spring brings.
