Wings of the Dawn
I know I said I was working on my next science fiction in the Deovolante Series but I got sidelined. I usually have several projects started at once. I got hung up in Return to the Stars on the space-time thing so I put it aside and took out Wings of the Dawn which is an historical fiction featuring a character from Wings of the Wind. Fabienne Beluche now Nicole Duval goes west on the Oregon Trail to get away from her past in New Orleans which includes her life as an Octoroon. She's going overland to California to start a new life. It's turning into a book about transformation. I'm about halfway through and it is really getting interesting.
The other book I have started is a mystery, working title The Three Sisters set in Bend Oregon. I got hung up on something in that one, too. So it's sitting on the shelf waiting for me to return.
I also have a memoir started which I worked on to keep in writing practice while I waited to get interested in one of my fiction projects. Such is the life of a writer. It's a perfect profession/hobby during a pandemic. On my writing mornings I'm on the California Trail in 1853. I'm perfectly content working at home. I don't have volunteer/community/activist meetings to go to, although some weeks I have too many Zoom meetings. Even the Willamette Writers Conference this year will be online. Strange times we live in. I never thought I'd live to see this. Very surreal. Like living in the Twilight Zone.

I'm a serious writer, meaning I have a regular daily writing habit, and I'm interested in sharing my work through publication. My favorite literary form is the novel. I write to entertain myself and my readers.
