Friday Update 2/19

Kids were home all week ("Presidents' Week" here in the Northeast), so not much to report in terms of writing. Just a few odds and ends ...

• On Monday I took the three kids into Manhattan to the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum, and then to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. Would not have been my first choice for how to spend the day (Wouldn't you guys rather go to an ART museum?!?!!!), but the kids were thrilled.

• Lovely Valentine's Day all around. Hope yours was swell, too.

• Still impatiently waiting for something to happen professionally, either for me or for my husband (preferably both), but in the meantime a bit of fun news. Thanks to my pal Debbi Honorof, the BOOK & AUTHOR TEA is all set for Sunday, April 18, at Hofstra University. For me, the super-exciting part of this is that the program opens with one of my all-time favorite writers, the witty, wise and wonderful Elinor Lipman. And guess who gets to interview her for the crowd? Yours truly!

Following our talk will be a most excellent panel discussion between mystery writers Cynthia Baxter and Anne Canadeo, moderated by Debbi Honorof.

And this is also very cool--the opening remarks will be made by KJOY radio personality Maria Garcia Kalb.

Mark your calendar now ... registration information to follow soon.

• If you haven't seen the new video feature I added to my blog, please check it out. And send questions!

• That's about it. Stress level still off the charts. Appreciate any positive energy you can send my way.

• Have a great weekend ...
