What A Daughter Learns: An Ana Alexei Mystery (Possibly)

Just when I thought I had put the Alexei to bed forever (The Marishka Tanya Alexei Series) The final book in that series was published Sept.2011, something funny happens, Ana Alexei the middle daughter has her own story to tell, I had no idea it would happen this way, I figured if anyone would have a story to tell it would be the oldest daughter Vania, but no it is Ana who is speaking to me.

It was around Thanksgiving I realized Ana was speaking to me, and when a character speaks you should listen. 

(Speaking of Thanksgiving I hope all of my Americans friends had a wonderful thanksgiving, I know I did, but please no more turkey LOL)

Ana I have been writing Ana's story for the past few days now, in this book she is all grown up, longing for a family of her own, but it would seem the good Lord has other plans for her.  Perhaps in the future, but I don't want to divulge to much.

Like most of the books in the previous series, What A Daughter Learns is the start of a kind of spin off series, this book is full of twists, and turns, and unexpected things.  Secrets are revealed, perhaps secrets that were better kept, well Secret!

In the next few weeks i will be posting little snippets of what's going on with the Alexei family as well, as information on where you can order the books in the Marishka Tanya Alexei Series, A Sisters Justice, Deception Beneath, Burried Truths, and Shadows From Our Past!!!

In the meantime I would like to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS, because as a Christian I refuse to take Christ out of Christmas, and a Wonderful New Year!!!

God Bless

From the Land of Wrimo 2011

the Land of Wrimo (2011)

I just completed my Nano novel today, closing it out at 70,138 The novel I did this year The Scent of Summer a ya novel about a young girl coming to terms with an accident that changed her life forever, but she discovers too that with Faith, and the support of loved ones. Just as the simple act of writing this Nano novel took the support and understanding of my family, allowing me the hours on the computer when I could be doing other things, like housework which despite everything I have managed to keep semi under control. I have also managed to spend time with the boys, and work on outlining another story, not Nano related called Desert Rose, so I have been keeping myself busy. It seems last year I was barely making Nano's goal so itfeels good to have made my goal a week and a half ahead of time this year.

I will at least not have to be pushing myself on Thanksgiving, and Black Friday, which happens to be my birthday this year, and no I really have no intentions on sitting around in some line waiting for a great discount on some electronic. I plan on spending the day relaxing spending time with my family and friends.
