This is a momentous day for me, and you all, dear Xanga readers, are the first to know about it!

I received word this afternoon that my book, “The Edge of Tidal Pools”, is on its way to the printer. The cover is gorgeous and the inside actually looks like a *real* book! In just over a week, it will be available for sale.

It feels very much like the birth of a child–though I’m thankful no epidural was needed!

So, as a sort of foretaste, I’d like to share with you the URL of my website, where you can read a synopsis of the book, gather information about its storyline, and see pictures of the island where the story takes place.

Go to!

The price of the book (220 pages!) will be $14 (+ $2 S/H). See my website for full ordering instructions! (Oh, and if you decide to sign the guestbook on my website, will you do me a favor and leave only “serious” comments? It’s supposed to be a tad more formal and informative than this Xanga site! Thanks, y’all….)

Thanks for sharing in this “birth” with me! If you’re a current or former BFA student, you were the inspiration for this labor of love….
