It’s difficult to believe that it’s been three weeks since I’ve blogged here on my book’s website! Busy is no excuse, but that’s what I have to offer. There’s something about this time of the year that seems to be filled with so many goings-on. Perhaps it’s that paradigm that’s centered on school’s starting again and getting back into a more demanding routine — though I haven’t been in school for a long time.

Yet, when I say that I realize that we never really get out of school no matter what our ages. Life IS a school, daily lessons that sometimes are smile-worthy, sometimes not so much.

For Aurora in Light Fixtures, set in northwest Louisiana, where autumn is about the weather cooling down as football becomes center stage (more on football season with an upcoming blog), her summer is ending, but what she’s learned during the season will prove to be invaluable. After all, slowly grasping that one has teen bipolar disorder is a big life lesson indeed. Her schooling about manic-depression is just beginning, but I feel she’ll do just fine as she starts her freshman year in high school. But that’s the story for another book!
