And be it further enacted…

Can you believe I missed National Lighthouse Day? It was August 7, and I just…missed it. There’s really no good excuse. I love lighthouses. I’ve done a lot of research about lighthouses and, over the past eight years or so, lighthouses have become the subject of six books in...

The Clue at Price’s Creek is Out!

Sometimes it seems to take forever to get a book done. There are lots of reasons why—some good, some not so good—but at “THE END” the goal is to have a book that you like. And when I say “you,” I don’t mean me (although I do have to...

Falling for the U.P.

Michigan has two parts to it. There’s the lower part that looks like a mitten, and then there’s the U.P. (That stands for Upper Peninsula, eh?) I spent the last week of October in Michigan’s wonderful Upper Peninsula…working. Did I mention that I love my work? Let me tell...

Back to Work Monday

It’s the Monday after the Fourth of July and I’m back to work…or at least I should be. Sometimes my work is so fun that I forget that I’m still supposed to get it done. My mind keeps saying, “You better get to work now and stop playing around.”...

Flying on the 4th!

Guess where I’m going on 4th of July? I’ll give you one clue. That’s right! I’m going to Copper Harbor, Michigan, and let me tell you‒THAT place knows how to do 4th of July! They have a parade in the morning, games and races and things to eat in...

Crossing the Cape Fear River

On a ferry boat! With lots of seagulls following us! (I tried to ignore them, but they kept squawking at me!) I was helping with research for The Clue at Price’s Creek, the next North Carolina Lighthouse Adventure by M.C. Tillson. I was pretty tired by the time we...

Too Long!

It’s been way too long since I wrote here. That’s one of the problems with doing too many things at once–you’re going to forget something. I think I need to make lists. Hmmm…maybe I’ll start now. 1. Tell people about the new puzzle books we have this summer for...

Glad You Like It

I have had a wonderful summer so far. Want to know why? Well, it’s not because Mercy has been an obedient puppy. (Check out Mercy’s blog and you’ll see what I mean!) And it’s not because I’ve spent a lot of time at the beach or on vacation. And...

Sam and Becky Are at It Again!

This time, Sam and Becky (and Mom and Dad) are spending their vacation visiting lighthouses in North Carolina. You may have seen the barber pole stripes of the beautiful Hatteras Lighthouse (on Cape Hatteras) or the distinctive diamonds of the lighthouse at Cape Lookout, but you may not be...
