I know, I know. I’ve been quiet again. Things have been crazy around here, including a 2-week bout with bronchitis right after we got back from vacation.
Anyhoo, I have great news! I’ve been accepted to be a presenter at this year’s Mystic South in Atlanta. I don’t attend many pagan gatherings because most of what they promote isn’t my thing, but this one sounds fun – I already know a couple of the presenters and they have good information.
The subject of my talk is, “Medicinal and Magical Plants of the Southern Appalachians.” Now that I’ve been accepted, I have to write it! In a way, this is a good thing. I haven’t written much about several of the plants before, so I get to research, which is something I love to do. And timing is perfect. I’m in the middle of tax season, which means analytical thinking and writing about herbs, at least to me, is a logical action. The older I get, the harder it is to switch gears between logic and imagination, i.e., writing fiction. So, I’ll be setting Ogre’s Assistant Book Four aside for a bit and dive back into the world of herbs.
If you live anywhere near Atlanta (or are willing to travel), I hope I see you July 19-21st! They haven’t set the schedule, yet, so I don’t know exactly when I’ll be presenting. Watch my Facebook or Twitter account (links on the right) for updates!
