And there was much rejoicing!
And yes, it's true: Lauren, my esteemed co-author and friend, is moving from the Midwest to sunny Florida. Her husband, Patrick, got a new job there. New adventures beckon from white sands and emerald waves, and they will make the perilous journey with only their wits and their Ferocious Beasts to guard them.

But while this will give us a few challenges here and there, never fear. We will continue writing until the series is done, and perhaps even longer. One of the glories of modern technology is that distance is simply not the barrier it once was.
The Dowager Empress is preparing to dwell in her new and permanent home. Lauren is embarking on a new journey across the land. I return to academia, triumphant. In addition, I will have two of my Magnificent Offspring attending college themselves soon, shortly followed by the third. All this, and continuing formatting in preparation to release Book IV. This is a time of change and adventure for everyone, and I could not be more excited.
Coming soon: I will have the pleasure of interviewing author D. Allen Rutherford. Mr. Rutherford is the author of The Wargs Trilogy, as well as a former army officer and a retired international technology consultant. Until then, keep reading, keep living, and keep having adventures!
