Navel Lint

A funny thing happened while waiting for Nicholas. He is still in the care of a foster mom who seems to be having trouble letting go. In the meantime, I stopped by the Seattle Humane Society just to window shop. Sure. Meet Matty, the multipoo who will be here to greet Nicholas if he ever arrives. She’s had a bad time of it in her first year. She’s very timid. But she still licked my face and said take me home. That works with men, too.

Reviewers, Please

TOS originalI am soon to publish A Time of Secrets. Would any of you blog followers like to do a review and – good or bad – post it for me? If so, write to me at so I can send you a pdf of the manuscript or a .mobi file.

Here is a brief overview to help you decide if it might be something you’d like to review:

Keawalani is a village on the Big Island of Hawai’i, tucked away where tourists rarely go. Life is gentle and uncomplicated until Maile Palea, an 8-year-old girl, disappears. Twelve years later she is still missing. A Time of Secrets tells the story of Maile’s sister and brother who never give up trying to find her and cannot heal until they do … the distress of a village that no longer feels safe from a changing world … and the desperate perpetrator who discovers what dreadful things happen when you keep secrets too long. The mystery is dark and ominous, but it is a counterpoint to the village’s culture, humor and lifestyle.
