Thank you dear friends, readers and supporters for a wonderful year! I could not do all that I have accomplished without your constant support and friendship. I look forward to writing and publishing many more books next year and hope you will follow me and read what is new.

Watch for two more novels, two children’s books and a middle grade series and a collection of short stories for next Christmas. I have my work cut out for me but having fun doing it!

Blessings for a wonderful Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year!

    Hello Jjspina. I have been really enjoying looking through your website. Congratulations on all those wonderful books you’ve written. I am so happy for you. One day, I too hope to be a published author. It’s been a long time since I have taken the courses, and there has been a lot happening since then so it has been put on hold over the years. In the meantime, I hope you find my own website a help and a joy to read. Thank you for following my blog. Debbie.

      Thank you, Debbie, for your kind words and for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your support. Don’t ever give up your dream to be a published author. It will happen if you work at it and believe in yourself. It took me many many years before I could realize my dream but it was well worth the effort and the wait. Best wishes to you! I will stop by your blog again.
