Thankful Giving

I have much to be thankful for. My health for one after many years of suffering, but writing has given me new purpose and I'm healing slowly, day by day.

On December 10th my first 'baby', romance novel SMALL PACKAGES-A CHRISTMAS STORY comes out. I can't even describe (and me being an author) the feelings of euphoria I have from the knowledge that after 7 years of working, learning, and growing, I finally have a beginning in sight.

Then, come April ( a day after my birthday we think) my grandson, Brock William Daniel will be born. I can't wait to hold him in my arms, smell his fresh baby scent (without chemical fragrances I hope) and share in my family's joy at his arrival.

Every day is thanksgiving to me.

Life as a writer is awesome...

Being a full time author has its perks, like being my own boss. I get to choose the hours, how long I work, can leave the house whenever I want, and even play with my dogs and cats.

The hubby will watch his sports and news while I click away at the keyboard, each in our own worlds. My characters keep me company even on the most quiet of days.

I love the silence around me. Living in a forest, away from traffic and such, I have the symphony of nature to keep me company. You just can't get better than that.

What makes you happy in your job?
