No direction implied



I have no particular direction today. Don't you love those days? Or are you someone who needs everything scheduled and planned so meandering is stressful for you?




This morning I made spiderwebs and had a catepillar race and played spider, spider, fly. Yep. I sure did. The SO works for the Youth and Children's services dept. at a local library. I am routinely recruited in the summer to work special programs. Today was Miss Spider's Tea Party. Miss Spider is a book character who just wants to have a lovely tea party with someone, but all the bugs are afraid of her.




So we had close to thirty girls ages 6 to 10 playing spider, spider fly (duck, duck, goose). They then crawled through cloth tunnels (cocoons) to become butterflies. My team won! We all became butterflies before the other team. Then we made spider cookies, lady bug bracelets and spider webs (God's Eyes) that we glued bugs to. Everyone had fun including the two big brothers who got dragged along. Though they were disappointed that I didn't find the big rubber bugs the least bit distressing.


I finished a wonderful book yesterday. My Lord Raven by Jan Scarbrough was a wonderful historical romance set during the reign of Edward I. The King's Champion, also known as the King's Raven, has cultivated a ruthless and merciless reputation at the direction of his king. Rumors fly that he has even committed murder. Most particularly the murder of the father and brother of Catrin Fitzalen. When Catrin learns her delicate and timid cousin Olwen, a ward of the crown, is to be married to The King's Raven she knows the poor girl, better suited for a nunnery, would never survive the marriage. Determined to save what's left of her family and certain she can find the truth behind her father and brother's deaths, Catrin switches places with Olwen as the girl flees for a convent. When the King finally listens to the rumors and placed his Champion under arrest, Catrin knows her deception must end and that she is the best hope of saving the man she now knows could not have committed the crimes. But once she reveals herself, she could well lose him forever. This book was published by Resplendence Publishing and is one of those that will be read again and again.
So now that I've chattered a bit, I'm back to doing my research for the current WIP. I've been paging through volumes on holistic therapies, aroma therapy, massage therapy, crystals healing, auras and homeopathic healing. It's fascinating reading.

Thank you, Jacqueline, for reading My Lord Raven. I had fun writing it, going back into history and creating Bran and Catrin.

Oh, my! I watched Miss Spider when I was babysitting my two year old granddaughter. It was a cartoon on cable. I'll have to buy the book for her birthday.

Yes, MY LORD RAVEN is a great book. And you gotta love that cover! My absolute favorite of Jan's books (so far) is TANGLED MEMORIES, which is being re-released this year by Wild Rose Press. Watch for it!

She also has some other titles available now from Resplendence Publishing. The current read on my ebook reader is Jan's A MAN OF HER OWN.
