Where-Oh-Where Has Ericka Been? Reprised

The life of a writer is never boring….especially when life gets in the way. On Valentine’s Day, I got the dreaded middle-of-the-night phone call about my father. He was losing his fight with Alzheimer’s Disease via pneumonia. I flew home to Illinois.

10 days later, I flew back to the California desert a lot sadder and a lot more appreciative of the support my family gives me to write.

In my inbox, I received edits for Wild Ghost Chase, so I’ll be working diligently on those, I’m also finishing up the edits on my Atlantean time travel, which is tentatively titled A Watery Grave. Then, I’ve submitted my pitch to HQ Nocturne (was Bites, is now Cravings). I wrote a huge chunk of the story longhand in a notebook on the plane ride home. It’ll need to be finished, typed, and polished before the TBA date (assuming I win an in-person pitch). If not, I have a few other markets in mind for the story! ;-)

So, for your entertainment on this lovely Tuesday morning –

    Ericka, I’m so sorry to hear about your father. :( My father-in-law died last year, he’d been suffering Alzheimer’s for several years, so I know how awful this disease is.

    Take care!
