Spring

"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child who knows poems."  -- Rainer Maria Rilke


Shaking the gray, gloomy grip of winter is always welcome around our house.  I like winter, the silence of it, the solitude, but it can linger too long, even for my liking.  This past winter was mild and the best kind of winter to bring a new pup into the house.  Kassi has done well, adjusted and matured into our routine so that it is like she has always been there.  Now that it's spring, she is ready to go. I'm looking forward to a great many new adventures with her and Sunny as we continue our daily walks. The truth is, we all need to get out of the house a little more.  And that is part of the lengthening days and the warming of the sun that I enjoy the most.  The renewed hope of what is to come. In spring, anything is possible.  We all need that after the deep silence of winter.   It's like starting with a blank page.  Happy Spring.

Good Morning! This is off the track for comments on your "Spring" blog, but I wanted to touch base with you. I am on the last installment of your Josiah Wolfe series, "The Gila Wars". I have only about 20 pages left to finish it! I have so enjoyed these books! Are you planning on any more Josiah Wolfe books?? Sure hope so!

Just want to thank you for transporting me from my own hectic world, caring for my 89 year old Mother suffering from Alzheimer's, to Josiah Wolfe's world. Reading your novels over the past few weeks has been a joy. And so, thank you again.

Caroline,

Thank you for the comment, I'm happy to hear you're enjoying Josiah's adventures, and that my books have helped you in a small way to deal with a difficult situation. I wish I had good news for you, but at the moment, I don't have any plans to write any more Josiah Wolfe books. But never say never. I might write more in the future. The Josiah books seemed to run their course, and the publisher is not publishing Western paperbacks any longer. You might like my latest novel A THOUSAND FALLING CROWS. It also features a Texas Ranger and takes place in 1933, Texas. Thank you again for writing. I wish the best for you.
