“Well, first the Reverend Mother would not allow me to take any close up facial shots of the nuns. Every photo had to be almost a silhouette. The results were wonderful, but it made me really nervous going in because I was worried that I would not be able to fulfill my assignment for the magazine. Once I finished with the photos, I was so glad that had been a requirement. I would never have done that on my own, and I think it was the turning point of the entire work.

Chapter 17 Part III
“Although I had studied about the Mormons, I certainly gained knowledge from Emily. When she picked me up she explained that she thought it important that I quickly see some of the landmarks of the Latter Day Saints and meet other Mormon women to gain their thoughts, insights and backgrounds. She had the next several days planned for the two of us. We headed straight to the Visitors’ Center at Temple Square, where the life-size murals depicting the story of the church were absolutely beautiful. They lined the walls of a spiral ramp. I wanted to spend more time looking at the art alone, but that first day was an overview, and I knew there would be time later for me to return. [Read more…] about Keeping Faith Chapter 17 Part III
This past weekend was the annual longest Queen Isabella Causeway run and walk, and I was among the nearly 4,000 people who participated. I would like to say I ran the six mile race, but I must admit I was a mere three mile walker. It was a lot of fun……….and I survived! [Read more…] about Annual Queen Isabella Causeway Run-Walk

Chapter 17 Part II
Arriving back at the room after a glass of wine in the bar, Patrick called room service. Like two kids, they sat on the bed eating and watching television. While Patrick was putting the tray outside the door, he laughed loudly, remembering an incident from many years previous.
“What is so funny?” Carol called as she stepped from the shower. [Read more…] about Keeping Faith Chapter 17 Part II
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that the New Year has already started out equally positive. I had a great time in Las Vegas where I spent a week enjoying the sites and sounds, and of course, gambling a little.
As a retired educator, I don’t have a bundle of money hiding in my pockets so I am careful in my daily allotment of spending, but I must admit I sure do like the possibility of a big jackpot. So far that hasn’t happened. Neither have I been “discovered” by a big time book company in New York City, but that doesn’t keep me from dreaming on both fronts.
Coyote Smart is actually selling fairly well, and I had my best book signing ever during the Christmas holidays at Paragraphs on Padre. I am optimistic that all three books will continue to sell in 2011.
Speaking of the New Year—my spring calendar is crazy with travel so I am going to be cutting back on my blog posts. What have been my regular Monday and Wednesday postings will now occur more randomly. Hopefully that will cause you to check in more often to see if there is something new. And I promise, there will be new posts and new information placed often here, though not as consistently as in the past.
Keeping Faith will continue to be serialized each Friday. I am definitely not stopping my blogs; I’m just slowing down a little in order to have time for my travels and other interests. I will keep you posted on where I’m going and what I’m doing so please stay tuned in and make comments when you do so I know you are still there. Your input is so very important to me and your support heartwarming and motivating. Please tell your friends about my books and me about your thoughts on my writing.
