The kids are gone.

And I am not very broken up about it.

All of my children are now in school, all day, every day. And I am free. Free to do laundry, which is sadly what I did on Monday. Free to clean my house - again, Monday. Free to write, which is the best part of all.

No more writing after the kids go to bed and losing out on my own sleep. No more setting up the computer by the stove so I can type while I make dinner - let's just say more than one pot boiled over.

My daughter overheard me telling someone that having the kids at school all day would be nice. Her reply? "Mom," in a tone of complete disbelief, "I won't be here." In other words, how could I possibly think that time would be nice when she wouldn't be around?

It was one of those times where a mom just has to smile and say, "You're right, dear."

The kids are gone.

Time to get to work.

After a long summer with very little time to write, I have finally finished my latest book, For Elise. This is the story of Miles Linwood - "Cousin Miles" from Drops of Gold.

They were inseparable in their youth, the very best of friends, two halves of a whole. For four years, Miles Linwood, the Marquess of Grenton, has felt incomplete without her.

When a carriage breakdown leaves him temporarily stranded in a tiny town, Miles makes an unexpected discovery that will alter the course of his life, and rewrite the pages of his past.

At just over 300 pages, it's a longer read than most of the others, but (I think) well worth it. Enjoy!!
