“I’ve always wanted to write a book,” I said.
“You’ve said that for thirty years,” replied my patient husband. “Might be time to get started. Do it!”
That was three years ago, and I did! I wrote three books in my Charli series, self-published, launched my platform, jumped in to social media, met countless wonderful folks, and wow…every day is a new adventure. Here’s another post about my writing life.
To celebrate, I am going to feature my books and writing journey on my blog for the next few weeks. I am starting with a short story, to introduce you to the world of Charli and Pud.

Moments later, my phone rang and I smiled to see my son August’s name on the screen. He was planning to stop by after work. And he was bringing us something.
Stretched out on my patio chair, I soaked in another delightful Disney-themed afternoon. The day lilies and hydrangeas waltzed in the breeze, a blue bird bounced on the Japanese Maple, and a chipmunk jitterbugged under the blue spruce. I did spy a few lusty dandelions, but it was such a pretty day, I decided they could join in the celebration, too.
Since Aug was stopping by, I decided to text my sister to see if she and her husband could join us for a light dinner. Sibby and George had become our happy-hour buddies, now that we were all retired. For a grey-haired gang, we were still pretty snappy.
I smiled at my text and then put down my phone and picked up my ereader
