Wow! This year has whizzed by and here it is Thanksgiving Week. With the world topsy-turvy as it is, I am thankful that I have family and friends who are normal. I know, I know, Normal is subjective. To ME, they are polite, kind, thoughtful, caring and supportive. I happen to think that is normal, even if we don’t see it on the news each night.
I’m grateful for everyone who bought a book this year. Sydney Porter: Dog Girl came out at the end of October and it has been fun to share the story. I’m especially grateful that the book reached Amazon Best Seller status and #1 New Release.
I attended the Society of Women Engineers conference sWE19, which was a blast in addition to a traipse down memory lane. I reconnected with so many engineering buddies and heard the latest in technology and science. Folks, there are some AMAZING things happening in our world, and some equally AMAZING women engineers doing them. I am grateful that so many young people are choosing engineering as a career – we need them and we need diverse engineers designing the products we use.
And I’m grateful for you. If you’ve made it this far you are a reader, follower, friend. Thanks for sticking with me. Fingers crossed that next year will yield several more book releases and a few sneak previews of chapters from the book I’m writing through National Novel Month (which is in November). Its a dystopian sci/fi thriller. At least that’s the plan…. 🙂
