Return to blogging

I have to apologize for the slow start this blog has had. I began it right before last November's NaNoWriMo, and didn't stop to think about how hard it would be to work on a blog while writing the last novel in a ten-book series. It wasn't just hard; it was impossible, and then that inertia that writers know so well set in and kept me from getting back to this.

The fear of the blank page is a very real thing.

But now that I'm writing this post, I'm also ready to commit to frequent blogging here. And while I want this blog to be a platform that will help me reach parents of middle-grade readers (ages 8 to 12), I also want to talk more generally about writing and connect with fellow writers, especially people of faith who are writing for children.

In upcoming days I hope to talk about my current projects and share more information about the books I already have available. Stay tuned!
