Mesa Verde & Aztec Ruins

As you'll see once you buy and read my paranormal thriller STRUCK (available July 10th *hint, hint*), pueblo ruins fascinate me. Much of STRUCK is set among the pueblo ruins in Chaco Canyon. This week, we ventured further north in the Four Corners area to see the Mesa Verde and Aztec ruins in SW Colorado. The same ancestral puebloans we learned about at Chaco Canyon also built and lived in these ruins. Here are a few pictures from our trip.

STRUCK: In the Queue

It won't be long now until I can hold my first published novel in my hands.

I finished my last proof of STRUCK the other week, and I'm thrilled with how it read. A few days later, my publisher let me know it was at the printer. Now, as the July 10th release date approaches, STRUCK is prominently displayed on the front page of the Regal Crest Enterprises webpage, in the "upcoming releases" section. Click here to see for yourself.

Sequoias R Us

Jack and I just returned from a Tucson vacation. We loved it there. Judging by our pictures, what we loved most were the sequoia cacti.

We took pictures of sequoia standing alone.

Pictures of me in front of a sequoia.

And we didn't even care if one was dead and decaying. In fact, it looks like that's the kind I relate to best.

Should I be worried?
