Happy Holidays, Kids!
**Begin Rambling Mush**
I do apologize that I’ve been a little MIA for the last few months. Perhaps I’ll share more about this later, but suffice for now to say that it’s been a long, hard, wonderful, trying and generally exhausting year. Unfortunately I’ve had to cut out some of my blogging and social media time in favor of keeping other things in my small world afloat. Like my sanity. And my day job. And all that kindergarten homework.
Along with all the normal hardships and hassles in my life specifically, this year’s election and the state of the world at the moment have exacted a huge toll from me, as I know they have for many of you. To be honest, I just haven’t had the emotional resources lately to be the funny, honest break from reality I like to be for you.
I do miss you guys. I miss hearing from you when I post a blog and people comment — publicly or privately — that something in it resonated for them. I miss hearing that I made you laugh or cry, or dive headfirst into a bag of Oreos. And if you want to know the truth, it turns out I need you far more than you need me; I am going to try to be more present with you in 2017, for better or worse.

WITH ALL THAT SAID, I have been working hard on some new material, which you’ll hear more about later. And in the meantime, I have something special for readers of The Marriage Pact trilogy!
This bonus short story, “Late for the Holidays,” takes place after the conclusion of BAGGAGE CHECK. By popular reader demand, it features the main characters Suzanne and Dylan from the popular second book in the trilogy, REGRETS ONLY.
