Two new stories in the works!

When I learned that I had to re-edit each of my published novels for new publisher, I expected to go into a panic attack, like my character Jessica Tyson does in the series I’ve created. But Hurray!!! I am reveling in the re-writes almost as much as I enjoyed their creation. So much fun to again walk along the paths of the exotic locations and spend time with the friends (characters) that I created so many years ago.

Sometimes I get so caught up in escaping into my writer mind. . . almost forget that people are interested in who I am as a real live person.  Last week at a local presentation people started asking about my past ‘lifetimes’ (That’s what I call the stages my life has carried me through.). It was more difficult for me to reach back and try to remember details of college days and years of working in animal vaccine industry than to relay information about Jessica Tyson’s friends and relatives.

SCARY, isn’t it? How much our mind becomes entangled with created characters as we travel into different worlds with our writing.

As a much younger person, I enjoyed learning different languages (Spanish, German, French) and dreamed of being an interpreter at the UN. My daughters told me, “Mom, when you become old and start with dementia, you will be blithering things in all different languages and no one will understand you.” Okay, having been through early onset Alzheimers with my dear mother and younger sister, I do not want to think about the dementia, but the blithering in different languages sounds kinda like fun, doesn’t it?
