A New Beginning

I’m late posting this because I’ve been so busy, but I need to make the announcement.

I’ve retired.

No, I don’t spend the day in a hammock (well, not all of it) and I haven’t quit writing. For the last seven years I’ve been teaching in Alaska during the school year and spending my summers working on the family farm in Washington State. Writing has been something I did whenever I could.

While I have worked on A Time to Endure every spare moment, finding those moments has often been difficult. However, with the release of Through Many Fires, sales have been strong enough that my family has encouraged me to write full time.

With much trepidation I gave notice in early April that I would be retiring from teaching. My retirement became effective at the end of May.

Now all I have is a small farm to maintain and finishing A Time to Endure.
