Book two in the Lamai Vampire series in finished, that is until my editor gets to it. My goal was to finish it by the end of June--done. What I didn't plan on was number three chomping at my brain. Working out in my garden, my mind was racing with ideas. This character needs to tell his story!
"So much for taking a break, Mom," my son says as I race upstairs to my laptop.
"Oh well, you gotta strike while the iron is hot and this iron's on fire!"
But this is therapy for me now. My middle son is moving to Florida to go to school, and I'm mildly freaking out. He's leaving this weekend...Momma's trying real hard to let the little birdies fly. It's not easy--that's an understatement. He was just 5 years old yesterday, wasn't he?
All you mommas out there...they really do grow up in the blink of an eye. Cherish every moment, I did, and they still grew up too fast!
But as my wise niece told me--"If you've raised a child that feels confident enough to go out on his own, then you've done a great job."
