Peace In The House

Hi All,

Just wanted to let you know that I posted my old story “Peace In The House” to Fictionmania ( and it came out this morning.  As I expected the nasty comments have already started, but that’s to be expected.  Wait till they see “Girlish.”  I just wanted to let you all know in case anyone is interested in checking it out.

Written back in 2003, “Peace In The House” was the 2nd story I ever wrote.  It became a fan favorite for many, even though it’s not my personal favorite.  Here’s the brief teaser I wrote for it:

Kate is a single mother with a seventeen year old son and a fifteen year old daughter who constantly fight like cats and dogs.  But Kate has taken a new job that requires her to be away from the house for most of the day, leaving the two kids alone with each other.  Since her son is the oldest, she puts him in charge.  But… who’s really the one in charge?

Check it out if you’re interested.

In other news, The Bet continues to march on… and on… and on…  I have now finished writing chapter 61 and have it totally in the can.  And chapter 62 has sort of been started as well.  It feels good to have somewhat of a cushion ahead of where you are in the story again.  For a while there you all were getting a bit close for comfort.  Working on chapter 62 and the end will be chapter 65.  I’m getting so close I can almost taste it!  And my mind is turning more and more to the next project.  But I have to finish The Bet first.  This thing has turned out to be such a monstrous undertaking that when I do finally finish it, for better or for worse, I will feel like I’ve accomplished something – something difficult! 

Have a super sparkly day!  And please smile once in a while,
