From the writing cave

It’s winter outside the writing cave and while I’m hard at work on books for a new series as well as books for some not-so-new series, I take time every day to spend a little time watching these faces outside my window.

It seems the previous owners of our house were deer feeders and the first year we were here, the deer let us know they expected we should keep up the tradition. At least twice a day I get that niggling sense I’m being watched, twitch the curtains aside and see these faces outside my window.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • Love your deer. My husband buys several hundred pounds of corn over the winter to feed our deer, turkeys, song birds, raccoons and many other critters during Northern Ohio’s hard winters (some are milder but there is still little food of high nutritional value in the winter so we “supplement” with corn from the local grain elevator) I am a wildlife artist and hunting guide so I spend a lot of time making sure mama and their babies have plenty to eat. My husband and I spend 80% of our time outdoors. We have 200 acres of all wildlife habitat and wetlands for otters, muskrat, ducks and geese. There are some species on our farm that are not found often found elsewhere. We love our little piece of heaven!

    Enjoy your books. Glad to see Lexi is “maturing” but am seriously disappointed she lost her “true love”. After 4 books building up to her one true love to find out she lost him is disheartening. Will there be more in this serious? I like to listen to the books while work in my studio. Summer is my time to paint and feed the art gallery. http://thornbottom.com/anns-art Starting on your next series, Ring’s On Her Fingers All the best to you. Ann

    • Thank you! We love feeding the deer each year.
      Lexi will have a happy ending. We’re working on her next book now.
