I received a kind message of praise from a friend for The Midwife of Venice. It was very timely. I have been struggling with the plot of Book #2 which is refusing to come together. I am just not finding my centre on this one and had just about decided that writing was not my calling and that I should stick to raising the vanilla orchids in my garden here in Colima, Mexico. But is that really my calling? My vines are healthy but after four years, have not had a single bloom- grrrrrrr!

However, I buttonholed my husband, Ken, this morning, we discussed plotting, and I am feeling better. He has a soothing influence on me.
