I wrote much of the "need" series before June 2012
Then I got sick and in August I got even sicker. It was June of this year that I was recovered enough to work and write! However, I have found it difficult to reinvigorate the first series - I am still working on the last chapter of the first book for Mom's New Boyfriend and just do not feel it lives up to the first parts.
In the meantime I am writing other ideas and will publish a few short stories soon.
