I finished book 6 of the Dream series and am taking a break for the rest of this year. I'll work on a mystery then in January I plan to dig in and work on Book 7 of the Dream series. That kicks off Volume 3 of that series, so I need to generally plot out what's going to happen in the next 2 years of the lives of these characters.
Sound busy? You bet I am, and I enjoy it that way!
