Top Posts of 2016

Friends, I’m writing my next book, but I will take a short break to recap my top posts of 2016.  My blogging friend Deb Wolf inspired this post!  I hope you will discover something new in these posts.

I am grateful for all your support, encouragement, and comments in 2016.  This is the year I finally got serious about writing, and I am so thankful! I look forward to interacting more with you in 2017 here on my blog and on my Facebook page.
