The answer is yes. Barely.


It’s been a very rough year, but I’ve learned a bit from it. No matter what else I’m dealing with (there’s been so much both personally and professionally) I need to write. And it’s high time I got back to it.


The Heir and the Spare will update before the end of the year. Those of you who know me know I’m way too stubborn not to finish my stuff.  For everyone who has reviewed and/or messaged me, thank you. It means the world to me.


Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a chapter to finish.

    Take your time Sleepy!

    Believe it or not your reader will wait for as long as it’s necessary for you to write back your fabulous stories. It’ll be a great Xmas gift to have a new chapter…

    It’s funny but just today I thought of you and TH&TS reading an interview of prince Harry addressing his Las Vegas moment :)

    Happy to know your writing back and hope that things start getting better for you.

    Looooots of love from El Salvador!

    Hi Valentina,

    So glad to hear from you. I truly hope that your life settles down and you find some peace in 2015.
    It will be wonderful to have an update, but make sure you take care of yourself first.
    May you have a wonderful and joyous holiday season!

    So glad to see you post. I was worried, because I don’t think you posted this year on your birthday, and you always post on your birthday.
    Take your time. Your writing is a gift to us – not a necessity. I am glad you are feeling the urge again, but do it for you – not us.
    Have a wonderful holiday season – I hope it brings your peace!

    I have been worried about you. So glad to hear that you are alive- barely is better then not at all!

    Take you time, do what you need to do, I’ll still be here waiting for you updates whenever you can do them.

    I hope you had a good holiday and that things get better for you in this new year.

    I’m so glad I stopped by. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and found some peace. I’m so grateful that you share your amazing talent. It’s Been awhile since I read “Art after 5″ and I have missed TH & TS, I’ll be looking forward to an update. Happy New Year!

    Happy Birthday, Colleen! Hope you are doing well. Kinda wondering, cuz you say you always update on your birthday (which has been this weekend). Really love The Heir and the Spare – hope you find your muse to finish this story!
