I may not be the most sluggish blogger in the world, but I'm certainly in the running. Another year has gone by, and it's been an eventful one. I have a new granddaughter, Ellie, and my three other grandkids are moving out of Kansas soon, which means that Susan and I will have to do even more traveling in the future.
I finally decided to leave my teaching position at Butler Community College and begin full retirement. My last class was a month ago, and I'm still feeling pretty unmoored. I was proud of my association with Butler, and it feels a little like a piece of my identify is gone. But the time was right. I struggled some in the classroom because my hearing has gotten so poor. I only held on as long as I did through the patience and gracious nature of my students. Their kindness meant more to me than I can possibly express.
I have three new manuscripts nearly ready for publication, but because two of them will be published under a pen name, I won't try to promote them here. Please just buy every book you can afford, and one or two of them may happen to be mine.
