Author's Note

I'm always happy when I hear from my readers who tell me how excited they are for this story to begin.

And I am going to write it... eventually. I created the blog to show my commitment to the readers who asked that, yes, I would write it, but right now, I'm focusing all my writing time on the story I've got going: Immediate Danger. It's my baby, my favorite thing I've ever written, and I've come to the sad conclusion that it'll probably be the best thing I'll ever write. It uses up all my time because the characters and emotions are complex and involved, which is why it's taking me so long to write. ID will continue to take up all my time until I've written the period of the very last sentence, however long that may take.

So I'm not going to put a timeline when this one will start, but I just don't know. If you're a Crosby fan just waiting for another Crosby story to read, I understand because we all have our favorite players. But please be patient. And please appreciate the fact that I'm not just a hockey fan, but a writer trying to expand my repertoire and abilities. There's nothing more discouraging than to hear people say that they can't wait for something *else* to read.

I'm excited to know you're excited. I am, too. But leave those comments, thoughts, and suggestions in an appropriate place, like here. If you want, let me know the unanswered questions you have so I can get an idea of what you want to read or expect to see happen. I'll meet you guys over here soon... just not yet.
