YA Historical Novel
I know some parts of the country still have winder, but here in North Texas today was the typical southerly winds and sunny skies. Temperature in the 70s, a nice change from the freezing days of winter.
Butterfly on Texas Sage.
This is a picture from the past. We usually have bluebonnets and paintbrush, but have no wildflowers or butterflies so far this year. Many of our trees have died. We need rain desperately.
So how was your first day of spring?
Update on my MG contemporary story, STAR OF THE TEAM
A dream shattered.
Eleven-year-old Kate Taylor dreams of being the star of her basketball team, Angels. When Kate’s tooth is knocked out at one of the games, and her mother, who is also her coach, says she can’t play until the tooth the dentist replants heals, Kate’s dreams are in jeopardy. Add Emily, the new girl at school who claims she’s the best, and Kate faces a challenge to prove that she is the star.
Will Kate succeed? Or will Emily ruin Kate’s plans?
Due out soon.
