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.
