And a Look at New Works

Seal Adoption Winner...

Congratulations to Casey Kelly of Newark, DE for winning the Seal Adoption from the book launch of Between Earth and Sea at The Palette & The Page in Elkton, MD, Friday, December 2nd, 2016. Casey will be receiving seal adoption papers from the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine, New Jersey. Many thanks to everyone at The Palette & the Page for an incredible book launch and to everyone who came out for a lovely evening of music and art.

Tides of Blue...

I'm currently researching history and surprising facts for this upcoming novel. Tides of Blue follows an indigo blue bottle tossed into the Chesapeake in 1860 and how the shards become a part of different people’s lives as it bumps along the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay, breaks apart and lands on different shores from 1860 until the present day. Featured in the new book are vignettes that revolve around the shards of glass in stories of murder, love, and tragedy. Thank you for your patience.

Other 2017 Projects...

These include some children’s picture books and the prequel to the Green Man Series, Planting the Seed.
I will also be creating a new line of sea glass jewelry, under the shop name Heart of the Bay, to accompany the launch of Tides of Blue. Click images for details.

Our Winter... the mid-Atlantic has been relatively mild so far. If you aren't there already, take a look in book two, The Leafing... Sylvia finds herself snowed in at Marian’s house with John and Owen. To the right, I've included one of Marian’s yummy recipes for baked oatmeal. Enjoy and stay warm!

Excerpt from the Leafing

    Marian pulled something that smelled warm and sweet from the oven. Sylvia went over to the stove to turn on a kettle of water to heat for coffee. She asked everyone if they wanted more coffee, and prepped the individual coffee presses and waited for the water to boil. She looked at the large casserole Marian had pulled from the oven and sniffed appreciatively.
     “Marian,” Sylvia said, “That smells wonderful. What is it?” she asked.
     “Baked oatmeal,” Marian said in reply. She caught Owen wrinkling up his nose.
     “Don’t make any judgments until you try it,” she scolded Owen.
     “Okay,” he said.
     “Sylvia,” Marian asked, “Be a love and spoon some of that into dishes.”
      Sylvia filled the coffee presses and took them to the table before she spooned the baked oatmeal into dishes. Sylvia noticed it was studded with dried fruits and walnuts. There was a pitcher of cream already on the table. “Wow,” Owen said has he took a tentative bite, “this is great!

Marian’s Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Preheat oven to 350˚.

½ c. coarsely chopped almonds or walnuts
1 c. coarsely chopped dried fruit (we loved the combination of apricots and almonds with my family)
2 cups quick cook oats
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
½ c. white sugar
3.5 c. milk
Dash salt
½ c. brown sugar.

In a large bowl, combine dried fruits, nuts, oatmeal, white sugar and a dash of salt. In another large bowl, beat the two eggs lightly, add the milk and vanilla. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until completely mixed. Pour into a greased 9.5 x 13” pan.

Bake at 350˚ for 45 minutes. Remove from oven. Turn oven to broil. Spread the remaining ½ c. of brown sugar on top of the hot oatmeal. Broil 1 minute or until the sugar is melted and bubbly.
