Update 3-23-2017 I recently received some very happy news. I’m finally going to be a grandmother! Or as we say in North American French, a Memere (pronounced more-or-less MEH-may), which I’m told in the Continental version of French refers to any overweight elderly woman. Yikes! Neither of those… read more

Update 1-26-17 - January 25th, 2017

Update 01-24-17 Happy New Year to everyone. I hope your Holidays were enjoyable. Mine were. I had all the people I love gathered together at my home to eat and enjoy each other’s company, and that is the very definition of enjoyable for me. Now it’s back to reality, and in places halfway between… read more

Tis The Season - December 5th, 2016

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we’re in the thick of the Christmas/Holiday Season. From Thanksgiving through the entire month of December is unquestionably my favorite time of year. Without Christmas and all the trappings that go with it, though, I don’t know how I’d get through the long,… read more

Update 11-11-2016 - November 11th, 2016

Election Day has come and gone, and like so many of us, I am beyond relieved that’s it’s in the rearview mirror. Up until two years ago, I would have thought you were smoking too many extra-legal substances if you’d told me the campaigns would sink to the level of depravity this one did. I sto… read more

Update 10-30-2016 - October 29th, 2016

Oh, be still my trembling heart! Can it be? Is it truly possible? Is the first installment of Book 2 finally done? YES! It is done. After almost a year, it’s finally done. And not only that, with its posting comes a totally revamped World of Letoria website. I cannot express just how relieved I am… read more

Update 10-16-2016 At Last! - October 16th, 2016

Hi everyone. I have great news to report! I finally – finally – finished the first draft of Chapter 1/Book 2! This was by far the hardest one to finish. There’s been a lot going on. I challenged myself to try some new writing and storytelling techniques that may or may not be obvious as you r… read more

Update 08-25-2016 - August 25th, 2016

I finally have some good news to report: at long last I’ve finished the first draft of the first installment of Book Two. Obviously that’s only part of the equation. Now I have to go back and make it ready for posting. The good news is, that usually doesn’t take very long, but ther… read more

Eulogy for a friend - July 27th, 2016

It came as personally devastating news. My longtime friend, mentor, and supporter had passed away. It came with very little warning. Even with all of my experience in end-of-life nursing, it slipped by me unexpectedly. I strongly I suspected he was heading down the path toward the end, but not so s… read more

Update 6-25-2016 - June 25th, 2016

Hi everyone. It’s way past time for an update. My silence hasn’t been completely my fault. As you know, I don’t do the uploading to the World of Letoria website. That’s a job my dear friend and mentor Invid Fan has done for me for quite a while now. As I said in a previous up… read more
