I am a wife to a very creative, and very quiet musician, and a very patient man who I insist read my blogs. His advice usually sounds like, “You need a comma.” Yet, when I go to retell the story to a person–he cuts me off to tell the punchline. I love that about him.
In addition to being, patient my husband is wise. He waited until we were married for sixteen years to confess it was a lifelong dream to move back to his hometown in the middle of his family farm. By then I really liked him. In hindsight, I have to wonder if that is why he started washing the dishes.
So here we are living a life that most people only read about. One where Friday is dedicated to community events, where relationships matter, and where our family dreams became important. It is also the place where my ability to write stories extended beyond the typical 600-word blogs I’d written for years.
With this, I hope you enjoy the anecdotes and stories you read on this blog. Once or twice a month I send notes out to people who have signed up for exclusive stories. They include character updates, excerpts of deleted scenes, information about book launches, and slice-of-life stories that don’t make it to the blog.
