I'm sorry it has been so long since I last blogged here. I've been quite busy with the holidays, editing Highland Blessings, and working on writing two new novels, Highland Sanctuary and A Season of Atonement, as well as stepping into promoting my book release. The good news is, I have my schedule back in order, and I'll start blogging here again--starting with this post.
Over the next couple of weeks I'm going to be posting a series on Celtic and Gaelic names and their origin meanings and spelling variations. Since we are still early in the year, if you would like to suggest a few topics you'd be interested in seeing on this blog, please leave a comment. I'd be delighted to hear from you.
In the meantime, here are a few dates on some upcoming events:

This program has a special place in my heart, as my hubby stayed there in Winston-Salem when my 3-week old baby was transferred to Brenners Children's Hospital 12-years ago.
