June Theme: Summer Travel

Except for short trips to the coast or the mountains, I'm usually at home during the summer. Living where I do-- --close to Seattle--summer is the best time of the year to stay put! My husband plants a big garden, we take our toy fox terrier for long walks, I write and read, and we entertain visiting family and friends.

 I did, however, visit Norway in May. My daughter lives in Oslo and we try to go visit her once or twice a year. This year we were there in time for the May 17th (Constitution Day) celebrations. (Kind of the Norwegian equivalent to the 4th of July.)  We also made a side trip to Copenhagen, which was lots of fun.

Now that I'm home again, I'm hard at work on a first draft of what will be the eleventh book in Joan Holub's and my Goddess Girls series. The ninth book, our very first Goddess Girls Super Special (The Girl Games) pubs July 10.

Let the games begin! The Goddess Girls get their chance to host the Girl Games! Told in alternating points of view, this superspecial is packed with Olympic spirit!

  1. Congratulations!
    P.S. Ever since I did a report on Denmark in 6th grade, I've longed to travel to that part of the world. Someday ...
