Such a dilemma, I love writing, I do.  But, I also love painting.  I am working on a new novel based on Science Fiction characters I painted years ago.  Now, My grown son is creating sculptures of these characters.  I am trying to write and paint and market everything. 
I have the concept brewing for a sequel for my finished novel rolling around in my head as well. 
It seems like, no matter what I work on, it is at the expense of the other projects.  I would love it if just one thing would get off the ground and I would focus on that.

I am also selling t-shirts with these images on them.  Trouble is, it is all so fun I don't know where to turn!

The Legend of Corn Bird

My second novel, The Legend of Corn Bird is available on Amazon Kindle today! I am pretty excited!
As I was raising three little boys I would look out my window and into the woods and I realized, if I were dropped into the wilderness, I would die of starvation. Even though I KNOW the Native Americans lived right here, right in this spot, just a few centuries ago.
So, I took a modern American woman and dropped her into the wilderness of 1690. Her trials and adaptations are the subject of my novel, "The Legend of Corn Bird".

As a history buff, I loved immersing myself in the research of the Indians of southern Michigan. I traveled to bigger libraries and read the Jesuit Relations; to get a window into the native tribes as they were viewed before their culture was spoiled by the influx of European settlers.
This book was super fun to write and I hope people enjoy a good read.
