After many late hours, many cups of coffee, and many experiments gone haywire, it's finally arrived. That's right, folks! I'm delighted to announce the release of my sixth book in the DOYLE AND FOSSEY: SCIENCE DETECTIVES series, The Case of the Terrible T. rex, for children ages 8-11. (Of course, I couldn't have done it without the help of Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey, the sharpest science detec...

Marianne Williamson
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"

Thomas A. Edison
“If we all did the things we are really capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”
Thomas A. Edison

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth's beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
Bessie Anderson Stanley, More Heart Throbs Volume Two in Prose and Verse Dear to the American People And by them contributed as a Supplement to the original $10,000 Prize Book HEART THROBS

Heather I love your Doyle and Fossey books. When can I expect to see a new one?


Michele Torrey Heather wrote: "I love your Doyle and Fossey books. When can I expect to see a new one?"

Hi Heather! Thanks for asking about the Doyle and Fossey books.

Books 1 and 2 are being re-released by Sterling in June, 2009, as paperbacks. Books 3 and 4 will follow in Sept, 2009. In 2010 (not sure what month exactly), book 5, THE CASE OF THE CROOKED CARNIVAL, will be released.

Cheers,
Michele

Thanks, Laurel. It has been an amazing journey of ups and downs, and now I'm on the up and feeling pretty good. I rely on my network of friends, especially other authors, to uphold me through the tough spots and to laugh with me when the going is good. I wish you every success in all your writing ventures!
