Yesterday morning this beautiful sunrise caught my attention after I’d been up writing for a couple hours. The view is from my deck looking toward Bad Rock Canyon and the west entrance to Glacier Park. I love watching the sky changes each morning at sunup with varying colors painting the clouds, like my fascination of flickering flames in a campfire. It is true the most brilliant colors are just before dawn.
During my years of working long hours in medicine, I didn’t write every day like I do now, but I still found time to write. I actually completed the first three, and outlined two additional volumes, in a medical thriller series – in addition to a bio-thriller and a romantic intrigue. But, before final edits on the fiction, I felt compelled to complete the three nonfiction books I have published, all with important timely medical information. Author Page on Amazon
Now that I have more time after retiring from medicine, I am focused on completing edits and honing the many manuscripts for publication or submission to an agent. Work got in the way in previous years, now I have no excuse. However, I do get sidetracked with other writing projects. For example, my sister Bev and I co-authored a novel set in 1960 in Northern MN. We are in another rewrite on that. We also share writing a monthly magazine women’s health column. In March, I took a play-writing class (one person play) from a friend who is a renowned playwright. I loved it and am making progress.
Later this week I’ll have another blog regarding my latest book, Birth Control 2016, available on Kindle free on April 30th and May 1. I hope you will take advantage of the offer and share it with your friends. More information to follow.

Val is 13 1/2 and doing great.
Be sure to keep busy. Now that you are retired, you for sure do not want to become too relaxed. We have reached the age you know, where if we sit to much we may not be able to move. Good luck with your writings. I’m looking forward to the novel set in 1960. Let me know when that is ready, Love you my friend. Karen
