I’ve been hard at work on my Star Trek books, the first of which will be available in September… but I did set the project aside for a couple weeks to paint my kitchen cabinets white. It was hard work, and I’ll be happy to get back to writing!

I’ve been doing a lot of work on the house, as well as my writing projects. Sorry for the lack of updates! Here you can see the bedroom, before and after. I changed the paint scheme, added a hardwood floor, bought new curtains, and added new decorations to give it all a spring-like feel.
