has been bitten by the writing bug... ;)

Feeling inspired after a talk with my supportive husband and am in the mood for writing.  A new story on my mind and for once - I have nothing to interrupt the momentum!  All I can say is that this will be a long one.Looking forward to this Valentine's weekend.  Not sure what to expect but planning to spend some time with Steph. Nothing else knew to report.  I suppose no news is also good news!

Self-published The Adventures of Choukie!

Finally self-published my second book - of which I would like to send the profits to either the Save a Sato organization or the Worchester Animal League (without either of which I would never have written this story).  It's loosely based on what factual details I was able to obtain about Maya's history.  It's a children's book though issues like death and abandonment are featured.  A BIG THANK YOU to Eun-Ah Park for being my editor on this!

Two versions depending on if you want the limited ed. square book featuring a picture of Maya or the text only version of the book... The text version is way cheaper than the other! (under $10.00)


A night in Dublin

on Wednesday, 29th July 2009 - 4:31

Spent an evening in Dublin to pick up my passport. While there had the pleasure of listening to the U2 concert as well as visiting the Book of Kells, The National Art Gallery of Ireland, and The Chester Beatty Library at Dublin Castle. The latter two are free exhibits.

I was most impressed by the illustrations of Harry Clarke for Hans Christian's Anderson's fairy tales.  Here is a copy of the picture of the wild swans (now owned by the National Art Gallery of Ireland).
