OCTOBER? How can it be? It seems like only yesterday it was May and I was packing up my research materials to have with me over the summer. Here, the air has turned nippy and we’ve had our first snow. The trees have gone mostly yellow, and I’m awaiting “the big wind” to strip them bare. There’s the smell of wood smoke in the air and the sound of woodsmen chopping wood, laying in a supply heating fuel for the months ahead. Store displays feature pumpkins (and have been I think since July 4). But my thoughts turn to princesses and mummies and pirates–and friendships. Always friendships.

Trick of Treat, Old Armadillo is a friendship tale set during the Halloween season. Nothing is better than planning to play innocent tricks on an old friend, only to have that old friend conjure up a surprise of his own. Published by Boyds Mills Press, it’s available for order at bookstores nationwide, and online.

As much as I hate to jump seasons, it’s companion, Merry Christmas, Old Armadillo, is also available for order, and is celebrating its twenty-first year in print.
