As you see from the photos below, my beloved animal family is inspiring me to relax as we start the countdown to December 25! After the fire at our farmhouse in July, all is starting to get back to normal again.

And me? Am I relaxing in the sun, looking forward to the summer vacation that is Christmas in Australia? Of course not! I’m in the kitchen baking or on the computer writing. After the “big day” is when I intend to collapse!
But the “doing nothing” thing never works for me for long, as plots churn around in my brain, and characters jostle for me to bring them to life. I’m soon back writing!
I wonder what surprises the New Year will bring? My big surprise this year was that my self-published e-book The Castaway Bride became an Amazon best-seller! It’s currently #4 in Contemporary Romance. Thank you to those of you who bought it and helped me get there! It’s still on sale for 99cents.
I wish for all of you a joyous festive season,lots of wonderful surprises in the new year, and happy times spent with your special people and pets.
