I have been unable to write in Let’s Talk for several weeks as my new site was being built on Squarespace by my wonderful new designer, Angelie. For those of you who haven’t been following my web site construction: My first website this summer was corrupted under my writer’s touch. The second site was ardulously built and completely unmanageable. The third site, this one, is fantastic. So you’ll be hearing a lot more from me as I can even write blogs from my iPhone. How cool is that!


“In Pursuit . . .” has been out now for a few weeks and I’m sure Katherine Mansfield would be pleased with the results so far. Readers are buying. Rave reviews are coming in! You can check them out on my web page review page.


And thanks to all of you that have made comments on my previous articles. I had to paste them in from my website graveyard so it looks like I wrote them but I signed with your names.

Needless to say I have been spending too much time in technological purgatory. I even took the risk, as Katherine Mansfield would have, and upgraded my operating system (OS for those of you who know this stuff). For those who would prefer a literary translation I went from being a Tiger to a Snow Leopard and in the transition lost all my files for around 48 hours. But they have now been retrieved and I am ready to move forward.

I get to be a writer again! I woke up the other day with a new character residing in my brain waiting to be developed in my next novel, instead of excessive thoughts on codes and pings and unresolvable computer glitches.

And now that I have this wonderful new site to work on, and it’s so easy, I will be adding worthwhile links, increasing my gallery and writing articles about Katherine Mansfield and biographical fiction. So please visit again soon. And feel free to contact me about Squarespace if you want to build your own website.
