The last three books of the Oberllyn Generations-these are 7,8 and 9, 3 books in one, saving you a bunch of money and enabling you to read straight through-really, it’s going to keep you up way too late tonight- is out and available as a paperback or ebook on Amazon. Just go to

to pick up your copy.  It’s a page-turner and I had a lovely romp writing it and getting it ready for you-although I did drive my editor almost to distraction.

A global genetic virus has a 100% kill rate; the Oberllyn’s need to destroy it before it wipes out civilization; then maybe Noel can retire and Kai can take over the family research clan while Alex and Micah head for the stars.


Now, in case you missed it, we had snow-I mean tons of it, 10 inches or so, over the next few days; long enough to get this book published, and another book is coming out next week for Lent-can you believe it’s almost lent already?  And next month the next cozy mystery comes out and a new series starts-just percolating around here at Potpourri PUblishing-and did I tell you Bambi’s puppies now have their eyes open.  Darling little things.  And Dan and I made 25 drop spindles.  Anyway, pick up your book, have a grand time, and remember to allow time to sleep-life goes on even if you have a great book to keep you occupied.  Blessings, all-don’t forget to leave a review.

The first FREE book is called Tales for Advent and Christmas Two, and is found on Amazon.

If you like Christmas legends, customs, trivia, recipes to make your mouth water, and bedtime stories, you are really going to like book two in this series.  After book one came out last year, Traveler got requests wanting to learn more about Christmas. In response, after research, she wrote book two. Find out how we got from a baby in a manger to six-legged horses. Merry Christmas! It is available for free on December 19 and 20 only-so get your copy downloaded!

Our second free book is called Uncle James, A Servant of God, to Us

It will be totally free as a download December 17,18, and 19 only-so mark your calendar and download your free copy!

I just started making MP4’s of some of the books.  See what you think of this one…and let me know.  The first three to send me a message will get an autographed free copy.

Happy Thanksgiving and on to Christmas!

Uncategorized Comments Off on Happy Thanksgiving and on to Christmas!

We had a marvelous holiday; we spread it out over two days so we could all see each other safely and that was good.  We ate together, walked the fields, played with the animals, and did some board games; it was all good and we are thankful to the good Lord for His blessings and safety for us this year.

We are thankful for all those of you who have been buying our books and reading them and leaving reviews-thank you so much for all the encouragement you have sent me this year.  We managed to get 13 books out this year, and that’s a record for us.  We have 5 in the pipeline for after Christmas, another mystery, another omnibus, 3 new books in a sci-fi series, and another devotional.  Next year will be busy.

There is a marvelous little song going around now based on two verses out of the book of Psalms called I would have Lost Heart.  You can find it on Youtube-they do a background of pines in the snow, and it is a comforting thing to watch and memorize, and it does stick with you.  The words have so much meaning for us at this time of the year.

I would have lost heart unless I had believed, that I would see the goodness of the lord, in the land of the living.  Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD! (Psalm 27, 13-14).  In this time when people are dying of Covid at a rate, last I heard of 50 an hour, we need to have courage as we do what we can to help each other.

Have courage, wear masks around each other, wash your hands, and read books-let your mind soar away from the stress and hurt in the safety of your home.   Put off trips you don’t need to make, stay out of crowds; we love you all and hope to hear from you soon.    You can leave me a message here or on my pm on my FB page. God bless.


And don’t forget-I can now safely post Christmas jokes-have a look!

Uncle James is live!

Uncategorized Comments Off on Uncle James is live!





Our newest devotional, just in time for Christmas, is now available on Amazon;

Uncle James, A Servant of God, to Us  is an ideal way to start off your new year learning from the letter gifted us.

The book of James has for centuries caused problems for the church hierarchy.   Some felt it took away from the teaching of salvation by faith alone; Martin Luther disliked this little book so much that in his original translation, he took it out of the rest of the New Testament and put it in an appendix in the back!  There is controversy about which of the three James in the Bible wrote this letter: whether James was trying to tone down Paul’s message, whether or not it was written only to the Jews and not to the budding church; whether it was too practical to be of any spiritual import as Luther thought.  James is a book of social justice; a book of unity, written to emphasize the duty each of us has to accept each other and to travel the path Jesus laid down for us. If you want to discover what the Bible teaches about social justice and equality, James is the place to start. This little book of devotionals, based on James’  letter to us,  helps you achieve clarity, understanding of our duty to others and may just change your life.

Life is Slowing down, sort of.

As I look out the window at the day, it’s not raining, it’s overcast, with a strong breeze ripping the leaves off the trees and tossing them all over the yard I just last week cleaned up.  Ah well, I can get to the leaf blower again come Monday…speaking of which, don’t forget to vote Tuesday, I don’t care who you vote for, but if you are a citizen, it is your right and your privilege to vote. Take a few moments, read the platforms of the different parties and figure out who matches you best, and go vote for them.  Yours may be the one vote needed to tip the scales.  I’m a poll worker locally and I have my sanitizer, face shield, and masks all set to go-packing my lunch and will be there 15 straight hours helping folks to get it done and looking forward to being of service.

Dan’s out working on his rocket stove-a stove that burns upside down.  He’s having a good time working on his inventions.  He set up an electric train set in the garage for the grandson who never had seen the like-in this age of computers and tablets and phones, it’s funny how something as simple as an old model train set can fire his imagination.  Also a little comforting to know beneath all the nerd knowledge, he’s still a little boy.  Wait, Scott just came over so now they’re chopping firewood from a dead tree they took down and adding it to the woodpile.

Now, don’t forget to go over to the humor page and check out the new jokes!  And the specials page…lots going on there. I at least wanted to let you know of some of the marvelous specials we’re running this month – I have taken a liking to 99 cent specials so hope you enjoy them and the freebies.  I’ll be running even more in December.   If you want autographed copies of paperbacks for Christmas, it’s time to get going on those-that’s on the specials page too.These are for right now, starting the 1st of November:

Gentle reminders on a cold day and some musings

Uncategorized Comments Off on Gentle reminders on a cold day and some musings

It’s overcast and the temperature is dropping, the wind is gusting about and leaves are flying off the trees, which is too bad because yesterday they looked wonderful.  However, it’s just the kind of day you might want to sit inside and browse around a bit, relax and read something silly-(see our humor page, just updated) or download a free book- for instance, Ninety Days to the God Habit is free today and tomorrow….you really ought to get a copy and learn how to make or break a habit.  Since some of us are sequestered at home due to this Covid mess, I guess after you’ve done something for exercise, walked around or straightened your home, or rode a bike or whatever, and there is time, a good book is just the thing.

I’m hard at work completing the Christmas book for this year, all about the customs and traditions around the world, divided into 26 reading, one for each day of Advent.  It should be out the beginning of November.  And the new devotional about James is coming out in two weeks-it’s at the editor right now.  So lots going on, lots to do.


I just got a new cuckoo clock-it cuckoos on the hour and a half, it plays music, a little man chops wood, a chimney sweep jumps up and down-it’s darling, and loud and my parrot hates it and has started imitating it’s more irritating (to GIzmo) sounds. So while I may hear the cuckoo at 8:15 strike 14 times, it’s Gizmo.

I am thankful for the folks who were able to give the kittens a home. Seems like folks are forever dropping cats over our chain link fence who are in a motherly way.  Or the cats just find their way to the barn, and there are only so many you can have!  Cute little ones this time,  long-haired and friendly, and will make their new owners happy.

And finally, I don’t care who you vote for, there’s enough vitriol out there to start a hate crime, far as I’m concerned.  But you need to vote, go early if you want to avoid the crowds.  Think carefully about who is going to do the best job for this dear country of ours and vote your heart.  I’m going to be a poll worker this year; it ought to be interesting.  God bless you and God bless America.
