I’ve been working on my YA novel for a long time now; most difficult task I’ve ever set for myself. Maybe that’s because it’s not my usual style. It’s coming along, though, and I’m hoping to have a good draft by autumn, or at least by the end of the year.
I’m going to Asia with my daughter Georgia for the first 3 weeks of May. Hong Kong, Guilan China, Vietnam, Cambodia. We’re very excited to be doing this. I’ll post pictures on My Space and Facebook when I return.
Otherwise, life is good. Reading good books, drinking good wine (and making some), spending a lot of time in Tennessee with Chris Bell, the author, and Bo and Dorna May, old film-maker friends.
In touch when I’m back, late in May.

Christmas Day. A day, hopefully, for renewal and love for all those in your life.
I finished an original screenplay this fall, and am back to working on my kids book, which I hope to finish this spring or summer. It’s a time travel book, and I’m having a lot of fun working on it; a change of pace from my normal style of thrillers and dark explorations. I still have some of those going as well, and I’m going to have a very productive 2009. Hope you all do, too.
