My First Blog Ever!

Well, here I am. I brought my cat with me. Hopefully, she knows how to blog because I have no clue what I'm doing. We just had 5 straight days in the high 90s here in northwestern Montana. Today the guys are here installing the air conditioner and it's raining -- typical.
I hope to share some of my photographs on this blog as well as keep everyone updated on my writing. My first children's book, A New Job for Dilly is set for publication by 4RV Publishing LLC in the winter of 2009. I am currently working on two follow-up stories with Dilly, but only time will tell if they materialize into anything.
To date, I have written over 22 picture books, four I have photo-illustrated myself, one early reader and one middle grade novel. I've been busy. My next project is getting ready for our 11th year of homeschooling.

  10. Hi Rena ~

    Thanks for sharing your blog with me. I love the mountain goat pic - he looks like he's trying to sneak up to you (if that's even possible for a mountain goat to do, heh)!
