Back from celebrating husband Russell’s birthday in California’s Gold Rush country. Good to get away and just relax together, exploring Sonora, Columbia and Jamestown. But now it’s back to work on THE SILVER FOXES — 25,000 words of first draft finished, so about 1/3 done with some ideas of where to go next. Looking forward to seeing where these characters lead me. They keep taking over and going off on unexpected paths — exciting and fun, but sometimes daunting.
