Merry Christmas

Dear readers,

Thank you so very much for your continued support, your kind words, your constructive help, and your never ending patience with my crazy year! I so appreciate every one of you, and love that there are readers on this blog that’s been with me from the very tentative start of this wild ride.


I would especially like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to my wordsmithing editor who does so much more than I can keep up with. Thank you, Susan for your tireless research! I so wish I could devote more time to posting the wonderful changes that you’ve made to the chapters that’s been under your steady, literary hands. Thank you for the quick e mail help, sometimes late at night. Thank you for cleaning up the garb I write in the early morning hours of my night. You’ve made my writing life so much easier, and you’ve been a great friend!

Thank you to Paola Donati for the Italian translation of Meander. You’ve worked so hard this year, getting up to speed with me. I feel you nipping at my heels!

To Vivi and the Super Hot Translators for all the work you do translating Meander into Portuguese, a hearty thank you for all your efforts.

Then to Kereny. You’ve been a star translating Meander into Spanish for the very eager Spanish readers, and often despite your own hectic schedule.

All these translators do their translating work entirely as a love job for FSOG and for Meander so it touches me deeply that they give up their own time for my story.

I would also like to thank my long suffering hubby and my precious little daughter who gives me the time and space to write. Without their support, I would never have been able to dedicate so much time to this blog.

I wish you all a blessed Christmas. I hope you can take a moment to reflect on your year, and look back onto it with a sense of peace. May your time spent with loved ones be filled with joy, may your travels be safe, and I pray that love will root deeply in your hearts.


Have a merry, blessed Christmas!


With love – Monique
