Happy Holidays to All! - December 15, 2020
Well, it’s been an interesting and challenging year, hasn’t it? With the daily bombardment of COVID updates and the election news, we feel like we’ve been hit in the head with a rock. We have to admit, we’re looking forward to seeing 2020 in the rearview mirror.
The past two years have been a little overwhelming for us, so please forgive us for not writing more. Mike’s mother was ill with heart problems for several years, then she passed away in June of 2019. Three weeks later we sold the ranch. Five weeks later we sold Mom’s house. Five months later we sold our office in Thermopolis. A month after that, we started moving to Cody, Wyoming. All of that means that it’s been a whirlwind of painting, doing repairs to properties, settling Mom’s estate, packing and moving 30,000 books to our new home in Cody, plus all of the other small things that must be done to create a new life in a different place. And in the midst of all that, we wrote four books.
In March of 2020 Kathy’s Young Adult fantasy novel, CRIES FROM THE LOST ISLAND came out. In May, Mike’s science fiction book, UNRECONCILED was released (to rave reviews, we might add). In June, our co-authored novel, PEOPLE OF THE CANYONS hit the shelves. Finally, last month, Mike’s book ALPHA ENIGMA was released.
