New Year, New News!

As some of you already know, my fabulous agent Amy Collins from Talcott Notch Literary Services, found a home with Indiana University Press for my non-fiction project! 





I can't thank all of my supporters enough for the years of encouragement, not the least of which are my incredible family, who have been my biggest cheerleaders through it all. 


Next Up? 

I'm in the process of lining up speaking engagements at writing conferences for 2023. I'll be sharing tips from The Grim Reader on creating realistic page-turners and developing deeper backstories for characters. In the meantime, I'm learning what goes on behind the scenes after that contract is signed!

On We Merrily Stumble

This month wouldn't be complete without talking about New Year's Resolutions. So many resolutions are broken by the second Friday of January (yes, today!) that today has been dubbed Quitter's Day.


But it doesn't have to be that way.


Today's post discusses why resolutions fail and how you can still turn that goal into a winner for 2023. 



This month is also a time when triathletes are in the middle of off-season. For most of us, this down-time is emotionally difficult-it's hard to just do nothing. Or at least a lot less.


For injured athletes, this is a time to recover and get strong before next season. Here is an article from USA Triathlon with tips on returning to training after an injury.


Winter is also a great time to shore up emotional endurance, before plunging into another season of hard training or writing. See this article for tips (it was written for writers, but applies to anyone).
