Turning 40 and Looking Toward the Future

I recently turned 40 and celebrated by having a tea party with some gal pals. My parents and sister-in-law sent an awesome shadow box with highlights from my life so far. It was a good birthday and got me thinking... what's next?

Well, on the writing front I have a new book that's been submitted to publishers for consideration. There is a sprinkling of mystery and romance in it. I'm patiently waiting to see what happens with that story. 

And I just returned from a trip to San Diego. We visited my parents and took the kiddo to Legoland. I was also thrilled to meet up with an old writer friend from college. 

So after catching up about motherhood and life since college, my friend and I decided to try to co-write something. I'm excited to see how the story will take shape as we work together. I will keep you all posted:) 

She brought me a gift. It was a video we made together in college called "Shoe Talk". It was all about how our taste in shoes differed. That's right, simple concept, funny in its execution, at least that's what my family said as we watched it together. After watching, my family said that I reminded them of Vanessa Bayer from SNL. So after watching a few clips from her sketches, I could see the similarities. The only difference is that she's younger and famous:)

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.
