I did not fall off the face of the Earth. Neither did I get kidnapped, develop amnesia, or have my laptop stolen (knock wood). However, I did have a summer so filled with change that it resulted in me publishing, The Collector, the first in a short story series. It also resulted in my family selling our house and moving! And about a week ago, I was informed that my short story "A Sort of Homecoming" would be included in Spark: A Creative Anthology, Vol. IV (due out in January 2014). With my list of publications growing, I decided that this would be a good time to get my on-line house in order and make a move.
