The View Outside My Window

The details and visitors change from week to week at the bird feeder outside my window. During winter, I had juncos and chickadees. With the arrival of warmer weather, spring brought in finches and other assorted sparrows. Because the populations of song birds have been decreasing across North America, I hope my little feeders help the birds sustain themselves through whatever hardships they encounter.  It is sad to think that someday their songs may be silent, unless we work to do better for them and for ourselves. Ultimately, the health of wildlife around us is a reflection of our own. As the cities of Flint in Michigan and Porter Ranch in California have shown, we are not immune from our actions.

Middle Grade Book Event - Start the Year with this Giveaway and Sale!

It's hard to believe that the holidays are over. Waking up to Monday, January 4, 2016 will mean that we'll be stepping out from the whirlwind of activity associated with life's recent festivities and into the whirlwind of day-to-day responsibilities. I'm dreading the thought of my own early morning alarm.

But January 4th also holds another celebration to look forward to. For those of you who love middle grade fiction, there can probably be no better way to start the year off than loading up your e-reader with great books at a great price. Or, how about FREE?
