I love cats. Not unusual for a writer to have one or more. I have three at the moment. Two older males and a young female. They are a delight. Good company. Sometimes annoying when they want attention.

I also have various cat collections. Dolls. Figurines. Toys. Stuffed animals. Tins. And anything else that has caught my attention.

I often wonder if I will become the crazy cat lady where all the strays wander in and come to live.

I even write about them. They star in my books and stories, interact with humans on occasion, or write themselves into the plot line and hey, what else can I do but let them?

Cats. Mysteries. Ancient gods. Tigers in small bodies.

I love them.

Winter Trilogy & Gothic Romance

Over the weekend I added another chapter to Winter Emergence.  I AM going to get that book finished this year. It continues the adventures in Winter Awakening for Mute and Word Warrior plus Nan and Jojo. There's also two human story lines. I'm trying to get the second book done because the main character from the third book Winter Moon is getting very impatient.

I've also discovered a market for Gothic romances, which I have been dying to write. I'm going to revamp one of the stories in the Doll house stories. It'll have all the elements needed. A creepy old house, a mysterious town, a handsome stranger, and two elements I'm going to keep secret. Oh, and let's not forget there are cats, dogs and a bird in the story as well.

Life as an Editor

This has been a productive week for me. I've updated my Different Dragons spreadsheet preparing for Vol 2. The deadline is 10/31/2013. I'm looking forward to re-reading the stories I already have and reading the new ones that will be coming from invited writers.

I've sent out the email reminders and am pulling or keeping stories as the writers indicate. Replies seem to be coming in everyday.

Life as an editor is good.
