I can honestly say I love the weather in Florida. I want to go home! Some say I am crazy but I will take sweating and humidity over the cold winds of the Puget Sound and the North East any day. I guess this is why I moved to the South East to do my writing. Did I say I am really bi-coastal? You will see I am on the West Coast frequently, yet do prefer the clean air of Florida and sitting out in my studio overlooking the little lake, big oak tress (yep Florida oak trees) and all the space writing away on my computer daily, taking breaks to try out another recipe, occasional attempts at learning Photoshop and the use of my digital camera. I am happy to be heading back soon, but first to Yellowstone and the Dakotas.
There is nothing better than “have job-will travel”. Yep I am off to the West Coast fairly soon BUT will be able to devote more time to my writing and developing recipes in the wonderful California kitchens. I must share the amazing times I am having on my East Coast Book Tour. This week I was honored to be able to attend a reading at St. Josephs Hospital in Tampa. These kids were absolutely beautiful and eyes wide open to hear the tales of Danny the Dragon. Walden Books was so kind to have collected 150 boxes full of donated books from their customers for the kids at this hospital. My day ended with an amazing taped interview with a hospital employee that has been there 23 years. This interview will be up on the Net vary soon. Keep your eyes peeled!
