      November Newsletter from Phoebe Matthews

More fog, more candles in the fireplace, more things to do, less time to write. But I am ignoring all that and writing anyway. The next big project is the fourth book for the Sunspinners series, and this one requires a lot of research into the history of the family. This is turning out to be a fun winter chore.

In case you are a dog fan, I am definitely working on another short story about another dog who wanders cheerfully, tail wagging, through Rock’s life.

The contractor’s crew is still doing noisy repairs to the building I live in. It is getting harder every day to find the mailbox. Or the elevator. Or the front door.
Pity party time.

Okay, got that out of my system. On to good news.

Rhonda Cratty at the The did a great review of one of my novels, My Deja Vu Lover. I hadn’t known they had a reviewer. She has also posted it on the Amazon site.

Lugging home a Watermelon?

More tourists, more traffic, more sunshine, more people with their brains on vacation, at least, I guess that is why the pedestrians swarm across the streets and stand right in front of the traffic and then look confused when a driver honks a horn. This is Seattle and folks here prefer not to honk horns but hey! Even more, they prefer not to run over anyone.

Now you know why I spend my time at home, not in the car. There is a grocery in walking distance which is fine except when I want to buy a watermelon. I can carry me home, but not a watermelon. So once a week I take the car and load it with all the heavy stuff.

Clueless in Seattle

School is out and oh yeah, the sun took a vacation and the rain clouds moved in. We adults are hiding out in the bookstores, libraries, any place quiet. Home isn't.
