Snapshots - Looking up

Greetings from the Hermit-Writer. Maybe it's because I'm from the desert Southwest, where there weren't many trees...and sandy-brown loomed everywhere I looked, but even after living in Tampa almost three decades, I don't get tired of looking up into the trees over my home.




I like trees (and clouds)




For you non-Southerners...this is Spanish Moss


By the way...I've typed 'the end' on my current project, a young adult/new adult paranormal adventure...am in edit...looking for beta readers/cross beta readers. If you are interested...here is the draft blurb:

Notoriety at seventeen stinks. Caitlin wants nothing more than to be invisible her senior year but the nickname she earned within the kith, the secret society she was born into, follows her. Remnants of the revenir realignment continue to challenge her life expectancy. She watches her family crumble like the worst soap opera cliché. Her queen, a five thousand year old shape shifter, has tagged her to search for a loose ghoul, and negotiating with a sociopathic ancient. Clearly, breaking her back wasn't enough sacrifice. That caused her clinical depression. Dodging conspiracy-driven bullying at her new school doesn't help either.

Paranormal adventure THE JENNINGS KID is a sequel to REVENIR INTERN, a spinoff of the darker novel, REVENIR.

Sunday Safari - Lake Kissimmee State Park (2)


Greetings from the Hermit-Writer. From a May 18 safari.

Many of the following photos demonstrate the unintended consequences of man's actions. South Florida was criss-crossed with canals to drain the wetlands to create farm and grazing land. Trees like water. They die if the water table changes. I may have mentioned on previous posts...I love trees. I'm no ecco nut...but my chest tightens when I see all the trees in South Florida that have been killed. The forest floors opened to sunshine, the palmettos flourish, which creates an almost uninhabitable environment for anything.

Even in death...trees are beautiful, mysterious, and intriguing to me.




This simple shot epitomizes my feeling of the outdoors...God's cathedral.



One of those damn canals that killed South Florida.

















Have a great week

Greetings from the Hermit-Writer. Blogger says this is my 1,000th post. Woot woot.

Notoriety at seventeen sucks. Caitlin hates the nickname she's earned within the kith, the secret society she's part of, and wants nothing more than to be invisible her senior year. But remnants of the revenir realignment continue to challenge her life expectancy; she watches her family crumble like the worst soap opera cliché; her queen, a five thousand year old shape shifter, has tagged her to search for a loose ghoul. Clearly, breaking her back for the cause wasn't enough sacrifice. As though her clinical depression isn't bad enough, she must dodge conspiracy-driven bullying at her new school.

Snapshots - Morning Walk

Greetings from the Hermit-Writer


My neighbor, Nacho, loves my girls.


All three...though he adores Molly


Lucy is one laid back pup, huh


And good looking to boot


This should have been a video...the wagging tails were great


Morning sip from the river


Ahh, the early sun hitting my fav pine


I like reflections


Nothing beats what the sun can do for the most boring view


Morning mist


Hi, neighbors


I'm glad I work from home so I have time for this view every morning.

My Pups
