You know I love writing scary stories. But I don’t like it when the scary stories happen to ME!
My wife Jane and I went to London for a short vacation that turned out to be longer than we planned. Yes, the Iceland volcano erupted, the airports all closed, and we were stranded in London for days.
Not a bad place to be stranded. But the idea of not being able to go home when we wanted was very scary.
So, now I’m finally home and getting excited about the Summer Challenge Ultimate Author Showdown Webcast. Having faced down a spewing volcano, I’m ready to face down the other contestants. I’m ready to face the unexpected and unpredictable. Bring it on!
