New Author Picture

Hi everyone,

I've been gone for a while, working hard on my third book, WHO BOMBED THE TRAIN? A Skeeter Hughes, News Reporter, Mystery. It's coming along nicely.

Meanwhile, I've got a new author picture, two actually. Maybe you can tell me which one you like better. This one,

or this one
 with my dog, Honey the Havanese. Isn't she cute? 

My friend Gale Gates took both of them last week. Isn't she a marvelous photog? 
I'd love to read your opinion. 

Meanwhile, try to hold on. The election is almost over. And to my friends on the east coast, please know I'm sending good thoughts your way in hopes you will be able to restore your lives to normalcy in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
