This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Join me on the writing journey and get inspired to try writing a little romance into your own life!

Briefly...

My Mother passed away on Thursday. Her service is on this coming Saturday, so we are deep in making "arrangements." Family is coming up from the South, and we're trying to maintain some semblance of sanity.

Yes, I am writing. It's sort of a strange "self defense" for me. Don't want to deal with everything all at once? Escape into your writing or art.

Hope you all are well. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. They help.

Take care--I will be back :-)

Hugs,

Sara
