Despite Covid, life goes on, and I have news.

Here we thought we were getting the best of Covid, and along comes Delta and Mu. Three of my writer’s groups planned to do in-person meetings in September, but now only one is brave (or should I say fool-hardy) enough to open, but they will do Zoom in addition.

My big news is that Holiday with a Royal, Book Four in the Cordillera Royals Series will be released on September 30. Kelly Chandler, a redheaded librarian who wants to become a travel writer, gets stranded in the Tenerife Airport, but soccer star, Prince Mario Santiago, is there to save the day and join in her adventures in Spain.

Coming September 30, 2021

My other news is that an agent is interested in pitching Romancing the Vet for a movie. However, with most deals, it is wait and see. One member of my DFW Writer’s Workshop actually got her story made into a Hallmark movie, and she got to be an extra in one scene. I will be calling the agent today to see if anyone accepted a deal.

Besides writing, I have been helping out elementary kids by tutoring them in math and reading by Zoom. Our volunteers used to do it at a building in person, but only a few of the kids seem willing to do it in Zoom.

Another way I have found to volunteer is at the mobile food distribution at my church on the second Friday of each month. I “go shopping” by loading up a grocery cart with cans and cartons. Last time, this included a frozen chicken, containers of orange juice, tomato sauce, yogurt, eggs, bread, and other stuff. Men would load the boxes into waiting car trunks, and hopefully, that would feed a family for several days.

Here I am with boxes of food ready to load into cars.
