Seanachaí's News

Levi Montgomery, Me, E. Michaels; Veterans Park, Marion, OH; 5-29-10
Before I delve into this month's installment of Seanachaí's News, I want to share a special day I had. Yesterday afternoon I was able to meet author Levi Montgomery and his daughter, Lacey, during their journey through the country. Levi is everything he proclaims to be, right down to his no-nonsense publishing theory. Not without a sense of humor, he shared his views on publishing, writing, and life and was often led to funny topics and antics by his animated daughter, Lacey.

Be sure to check out their travel log, Road Trip 2010! If you haven't read Levi's work yet, do so!


On the last Sunday of each month, I compile "Seanachaí's News," a status report that assesses my work during the current month and also formulates my plans for the upcoming months. It will also give you a peek at my works in progress.

My Work During the Current Month

  1. Why does the month of May go so well with the name Mindy? My latest short-short , "Mindy May," has the answer.
  2. "The Making of a J.e.raffe" is a short, creative work of "nonfiction" that conveys multiple meanings depending on the reader.
  3. Walking Barefoot with Crows takes a look at the fine line between fiction and nonfiction.
  4. Part III of "Murmuring that Creeps into the Life of a Wandering Soul" gives the reader a glimpse of my journey through life with a collection of my new haiku.

My Plans for the Upcoming Months

  1. I'm currently working as tech support for E. Michaels on the latest title for Sunflower Footsteps. It's entitled Little Duck Gets Ready For School and will be available this summer. This second title in The Feel Good Series is a story for younger readers. Each title in the series encourages self-confidence and includes a story to read and color, activities to complete, and games to play.


As always, I love to hear from you. If you’re in the cyber-neighborhood,
drop me a line.

In the meantime, keep writing, reading, and smiling.
It’s contagious.
