I'm Back!!

Wow! It's been a really long time since I've posted anything. I guess that's what happens when your husband gets called to be a bishop. Life has been one crazy ride since then. I didn't think it would affect us as much as it did. But we love it! Our family is getting so many blessings.

I taught a writing class at the Northwest Writer's Retreat Sponsored by ANWA this weekend, and it re-inspired me! If you don't know about ANWA click here. It's an amazing LDS women's writer group on the web.

On another note, a friend of mine, Linda Weaver Clark, just recently released a book. Here is the information she gave me if any of you want to check it out! See you next Saturday!

Here is a sneak peak at Linda's book, "Mayan Intrigue." Visit her blog below to read a sample chapter.

A Mysterious Artifact and Archaeological Thievery is Theme of Mayan Intrigue

The jungles of the Yucatan, Mayan ruins, looters, a mysterious artifact, and a nosey reporter are focus of Mayan Intrigue.

“Mayan Intrigue” (ISBN: 978-1-58982-616-8) has humor, a touch of romance, and danger lurking in shadowy corners. With a blend of mystery and suspense, John and Julia Evans investigate and solve crimes, a story based upon the adventures of a married couple and their three daughters.

The subject discussed in this novel is archaeological thievery. When an ancient ruin is discovered, it doesn’t take long for thieves to take it apart. The Mayas used astrological alignments when planning their city. Looters have learned the layout of the Mayan cities so they know where to dig. With this knowledge, they can loot a sacred temple in a few days. Did you know that looting is only second to selling illegal drugs? While writing Mayan Intrigue, Linda Weaver Clarke found that artifact theft in Mexico has been taken over by drug dealers from Columbia. In other words, since organized crime has taken over, there is also an increase of violence. Can anything be done to save Ancient American history? Find out in this new mystery/suspense novel, Mayan Intrigue.

Congragu-dolences on your husband becoming Bishop. My husband is in his fourth year now. I must agree there are blessings attached to that calling.
Welcome back to blogging. Your book sounds awesome.
