On the Verge of 2014

Just on the verge of 2014, I sold another book to Chronicle.  They are also publishing my book, Two Hands to Love You, in May of 2014.  It has been a lovely year with them!
We also added two new pets to our family, Caramel and Colonel.  They have added great joy,
                                                  and lots more clean-up duties, to our lives.

The entire Adams side of our family (plus our son's girlfriend - far left) got together for a family photo at Thanksgiving.  Our severely autistic nephew (far right) was in a good mood and did great for all the photo taking.  It was good to be together again over the holidays.

I'm thankful for family (especially Chris and Scott), warm weather, teaching great students at Cal State, and for friends near and far - some whom I hope to meet in April.

Christy,
I tried to change my message to you while we were in Utah, but it didn't work. I meant to call your book by it's correct and wonderful name, Dreaming Up! Sorry for the mistake!

Hi Heather, you may want to talk to Stephanie Bodeen, our blog founder! You can click on her name to the right of the blog! :)
