I absolutely love autumn! Having grown up on a farm, I view the season as the time for winding down. The crops have been harvested and the fields tilled, ready for a well-earned rest under a fluffy blanket of snow. Yet, while the land settles down, the cooling air invigorates and propels me outdoors to indulge my adventurous side in a final spree of hikes and explorations before winter arrives, when again my creative side kicks in and I return to writing in earnest. With luck I should be wrapping up the final book of my Dark Lords of Epthelion trilogy by January. Stay tuned!
