Home sale update
Our next open house is this Sunday, October 23rd. We'll clean the house, stage it, and take our critters to a friend's home--again. We recently took down some trees that had outgrown their allotted territory and were shading out some of the back lawn. (Trees often grow taller and bigger than predicted here in Florida.) And we continue to sell our furniture and other belongings to dealers and at a yard sale. We even sold our dining room chairs, which we had planned to do anyway. Now we have to buy a new set. (I know that matched sets of furniture are considered passe by some designers, and I mix and match myself, but I would like my dining room chairs to match.)
I've been writing stories since I was a kid. My stories and articles have been published in print magazines, webzines, and anthologies; and my SF has been published in two audiobooks, including Sugar Time. My books include Strike Three, Detour Trail; Building a Cool House for Hot Times without Scorching the Pocketbook; a children's book, Why Won't Anyone Play with Me?; two story collections:The Doorway and Other Stories (SF) and Aliens, Animals, and Adventure; and four e-books: Hidebound, Pretty Pink Planet, Hot Yellow Planet, and Remodeling: Buying and Updating a Foreclosure. I live in Florida with Blizzard the Snow Princess and Bryn the Flying Corgi.
