October Review-o-Rama

So, October…. boy, there was a lot going on. Some of it planned, and some of it more like “scramble like a maniac to get things done.” Lots of good stuff, so I think it all bears a little repeating. I would have been easy to miss something. Here we go. October 11: A Boy, a Girl, and a Ghost The new novel is released! We are getting some stellar review so far: And, in …

Chupacabra: A Conner Bright Mystery Story

I’ve got a new story is out. This one is, technically, a short novella at about 80 pages long. I wrote it as part of my Campfire Tales program. It’s where you guys fill out surveys to help me write my next story and then get to read them, as long as you are a subscriber to my newsletter. (Yup, I’m trying to bribe you, but it’s a good bribe 😊) If you are a …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #10

Star Date: October 26, 2019 Hello Campers! I just love the month of October! Mostly it’s because October is our author’s birth month. We always try to take time out to celebrate birthdays in a special way, like traveling to beautiful places, hiking, and enjoying some favorite foods. This year for Robert, the favorite food was homemade gf/vegan mac ‘n cheese and coconut birthday cake for dessert. We didn’t need to travel too far to …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #9

Star Date: September 28, 2019 Happy Fall Campers! The late Summer sunshine has gently given way to cooler temps and a riot of yellow flowers here in Flagstaff. We’re trading in short sleeves for those warm sweaters now that there’s a chill in the air. I think there’s nothing quite like reading a good Campfire Tale alongside a steaming mug of hot apple cider or a spiced rum toddy. As usual, our author has been …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #8

Star Date: August 31, 2019 Hello Readers, On a bit of a serious note, on July 21st a wildfire broke out in Flagstaff that threatened several neighborhoods. Our home was not in immediate danger, but we have friends whose homes were right on the line. The “Ready, Set, Go” details were shared widely on social media and stories of neighbors offering transportation, food and shelter for animals and people were uplifting even as the fire …

The Mystery at Molas Pass

It’s release day! A very special one at that.

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #6

Star Date: June 29, 2019 Hello Readers, It’s finally Summer here in Flagstaff and we are a bunch of happy campers now! It rained and snowed several times during the month of May, so we have an abundance of wildflowers blooming and my garden is full of little stone people, colorful perennial pansies (who knew such a thing existed), dianthus, snap dragons, daisies, and herbs. Early morning will usually find our author typing away at …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #5

Star Date: May 25, 2019 Greetings Readers! Since our last update, camp life has become unbelievably busy. We had been thinking that Olivia needed a four-pawed canine friend to help her feel more comfortable. She truly is a pack animal and she had been a bit of a sad sack over not being with her littermate, Sky, and other friends next door. So, I asked the universe for a male spaniel. The universe delivered not …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #4

Star Date: April 27, 2019 Greetings Readers! The Spring winds are blowing away the remnants of Winter here in Flagstaff. In early April, Robert and I made a short getaway for a “working vacation” to Colorado. We were able to dip into hot springs and recover from a very long winter of snow, injured knees, and puppy care. Our sweet Olivia is maturing and developing the cutest little habits. She buries her biscuits in the …
