From my June 2020 newsletter ( ...

When I started posting photos to Facebook and Instagram, most of us were quarantined. Some of us were anxious. And, I wanted to give folks a glimpse of the world outside our doors. A daily moment of Zen. But, now we're launching back out there. Some of us are eager to leave; some may hang out at home longer. But, these balloons symbolize our flight into a new unknown. Starting this week, my daily photos have taken on a slightly different theme. This one's "Ready to Launch" from Bagan, Myanmar (Burma).

Stop over to my Facebook page or Instagram account to check out more photography by my husband, Mike Knowlton, and me and share some feedback in the comments.  Thanks!

​The Alexa Willliams suspense series was featured on the Sunbury Press blog earlier this year, but I didn't catch it as I was away. It's a nice summary of the series. If you're an Alexa fan, please share with your friends.

Excerpt taken from my newsletter: 

A few days ago, I re-read T.S. Eliot's poem, The Wasteland, which opens with the line:

"April is the cruellest month." 

Eliot wrote his classic of modernist poetry in the aftermath of World War I, when Europe and America were reeling from death and destruction. I fear that Eliot's words may again be all too apt for the April we're facing today -- although the battle is against an enemy that's unseen until after it attacks. I take hope from the fact that, when Eliot wrote The Wasteland, the world had survived. Battered and weary, but carrying on. And, the world will again survive Covid-19, despite devastating loss of life and an economic toll that will be felt far into the future.

During the rainy days ahead, both in Apr...

My husband and I spent most of August in Southern Africa. We love the outdoors, seeing animals in the wild, and the adventure of safaris so, for us, Africa is the perfect destination.  We’ve made several trips to East Africa and Southern Africa, but keep returning to the isolated wilds of Botswana.

This trip, we visited five different camps in three different regions: the watery Okavango Delta, the river-based Linyanti with its thousands of elephants, and the scenic Kalahari Plains. 

We also stayed at Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe.  Located on the Zambezi River, our camp nestled under huge ebony trees. One of its delights was that animals used the camp as a path to the river. That meant every time we stepped out our door, we had to be alert for the elephants, elands, and even a leopa...

Try this new read by fellow International Thriller Writer Carol Potenza with her debut, highly-acclaimed novel, Hearts of the Missing.  


When a young woman linked to a list of missing Fire-Sky tribal members commits suicide, Pueblo Police Sergeant Nicky Matthews is assigned to the case. As the investigation unfolds, she uncovers a threat that strikes at the very heart of what it means to be a Fire-Sky Native: victims chosen and murdered because of their genetic makeup. But these deaths are not just about a life taken. In a vengeful twist, the killer ensures the spirits of those targeted will wander forever, lost to their family, their People, and their ancestors. When those closest to Nicky are put in jeopardy, she must be willing to sacrifice everything—her career, her life, e...
