On a personal note, I'm coming up on my first anniversary of being cancer-free. 2011 was not a great year for me (scroll down to the October 2011 news entry for the explanation of my diagnosis and treatment). 2012 has been infinitely better, and I was so glad I could get back to work and finish this new novel. I'm so excited about it. Thank you to all my kind readers who have written me and kept me in your prayers. I am grateful beyond measure. 2013 is going to be fabulous.
