If you are dropping by from the 5 Minutes for Mom Blog Party, welcome! It's nice to meet you! With five lively kids and a crazy cat, Patrick and I feel like we live in a perpetual party. The photo above is from a couple of summers ago (we're bad about group pictures), but you get the general idea.
I'm a writer just coming back from several years of maternity leave. I had a YA novel, Shannon's Mirror, published when my oldest was a baby. Twelve years later, I feel like I have finally paid down the sleep debt enough to spare sufficient mental energy for writing. Look here at a couple of things I did in the meantime.)
I am working on two manuscripts at the moment: ZF-360, a modern fantasy novel, and The Holly Place, a ghost story of sorts. Knitting friends of mine have meters posted on their blogs showing the progress of their current projects; maybe I should find something like that for my books.
I'm celebrating the blog party by indulging the big boys and myself (the three littles are in bed, and P is driving home from the City) in one of our favorite treats: Sheer Bliss Pomegranate/Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Bars. Delish; why don't you pop down to your local grocery and see if they can order you some?
Please leave a comment so that I can return the visit. Enjoy!
