Up But Not Running!

To my many friends and readers, this is to inform you that two weeks after my fun and successful book launch, I became one of San Miguel de Allende’s many  “fallen women.”

Yes, I fell at the wonderful annual fiesta at the SMA Writers’ Conference, while dancing, when my feet slipped out from under me and I caught myself with my right arm—crunch! I’m now in a full right arm cast and you can well imagine a writer’s frustration when she can no longer write all those book scenes rolling around in her head.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I will soon be back in operation. My next novel and maybe a re-issue of my travel memoir are both on the burners waiting for the fire to be lit under them! Check out my book on Amazon and the fine reviews from my readers. My apologies: I took down the Kindle version to make some much needed corrections; it will be back up in a week. Keep posting those reviews, please. 

Attention book group fans: please note that at the end of Under The Salvadoran Sun, there are questions and guidelines for book groups. I would be delighted to Skype with your book group if they choose to read my book. Let me know by writing me at
