Life in the Home Office

When I left my office job to work from home, my regional manager "worried" that I would not like working from home for the lack of socializing.  I know, that's funny if you know me, right!

This November will be three years of working from home. And... I love it! Not only do I work (as in a job) from home, but I've picked up sewing and writing.  You know about the writing as I blog every week and you probably know about the sewing as I have highlighted some sewing on the blog. 

Now, I'm writing books.  A year or so ago I wrote a non-fiction book so I would have a manuscript to take to a writing conference.  The conference never happened so I wound up tabling the book.  Then last year, I accepted a challenge to write a novel.  I wrote a book in two months.  It was so much fun!

So when it was time to set goals for the new year, one was to publish a couple of books.  I don't know if I'll get two books published this year or not, but one will be coming out soon this summer or early fall.

The story is about a nurse who is struggling with her idea of God.  Of course, she has a little mystery thriller in the mix, but the real matter is how our Savior pursues her.  I hope to have a couple more books in that series next year.

Let all that you do be done in love.
