Well it sure has been a long time since the last post on this here blog! I apologize for being gone so long! Never fear, I haven’t disappeared. I’ve just been working hard over the past four years on various projects. I’ll be posting updates over the next few weeks highlighting what I’ve been up to. One exciting piece of news is that I’m beginning work on my very first children’s book. I hope to share the progress with you as it develops and I’m very much looking forward to this new adventure.
