As of March 31, 2016, I am officially retired from my 20-year career at a lottery corporation. Woo-hoo! I'm not sure the reality of it has really kicked in yet, but I'm sure it will soon. :)

On my last day at work, I arrived home, exhausted from all the emotions of saying good-bye, wrapping up last-minute tasks, and smiling from ear to ear! My wonderful hubby had a cake and lots of wine waiting for me (just to be clear, I DID NOT drink all of that wine that evening!).

My writing has suffered a bit in the last year or so, and this new chapter in my life will allow me to kick-start my muse back into gear and re-ignite my passion and love for this challenging but immensely rewarding hobby. I even went out yesterday and bought myself a new laptop to celebrate my retirement, so there is no excuse for not writing. And, the other upside is that I can continue to read, read, read without the interruption of work. :)

Oh, yeah, I definitely have this problem! And, not only do I have a difficult time deciding what to read next, I also keep adding to the tottering TBR pile to make the decision even harder! :)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!

May you enjoy good food, good times with your family and friends, and maybe a few precious moments with a good book!

I am so thankful for my life with my loving hubby who is my soul mate and best friend and for my furry dog child, Kitty, who has brought such joy and love to our lives.

I'm extremely grateful for the fulfillment of my lifelong dream of becoming a published writer and for all the support that I have been given over the past few years from my family, fans and readers. Thank you all so much!

Despite the fact that I have over 130 books on my TBR pile (paperbacks and e-books that I already own), I still purchased more books from my local library’s annual book sale yesterday in the mall!

It’s not my fault, though. Every year I volunteer to help at the book sale for a few hours and all those lovely books keep staring at me and calling out to me, “Buy me! Buy me! Look how irresistible I am! Bwahahaha!” And like a good little book addict, I give in to the temptation and come home with a load of books to add to my tottering bookshelves. But, really, at $.50 a paperback and $1.00 for a hardcover, how could any true bibliophile possibly resist such a bargain? And, I keep telling myself it’s for a good cause since this is my library’s biggest fundraiser for the year. So, I guess I’m not really obsessed after all…I’m just very thoughtful and unselfish and looking out for the welfare of fellow book readers by providing funds for the library to purchase more reading materials. Yeah, that’s it! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Now I feel better. No obsession here, just altruistic intentions.

But that might not explain why I downloaded another e-book to my Kindle this morning!

Hmm.
