Writing and editing have always been my second job. Or sometimes third. What I did in the evenings, early mornings Saturday and Sunday.
We bought a house to renovate last November, however, and that's been taking my time. It had to be redone from top to bottom -- from flooring to roofing, and we aren't even halfway done yet. This is why I haven't sent out any new short stories or worked on any new novels.
Currently, in the few moments I have here and there, I am working on revisions of Storm Summer, a young adult historical set in Louisiana during World War II. I'd like to start sending this out to publishers in the fall. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
