Back in 2004 three hurricanes brought a LOT of water to southeast Georgia in quick succession and, as a result, Sandhill was left with a very leaky roof. I took that opportunity to give her a facelift. Once it was all done, she was still the same girl, just wearing a new dress. That's what a completely redesigned webpage is like. Most of what was here before still is, but the visual presentation is brighter and more interesting. And there are some new things. For a number of years I've hosted a blog on which I've posted my newspaper columns. It finally occurred to me that it made much more sense to combine the blog with the website, so this is where you'll find the columns from now on. The old blog will still be around, but there will be no new posts after June 30. They will be right here. Also right here you'll find occasional posts on topics I don't usually write about in the column. Please take a look at the Community page and, if you like, subscribe to the new quarterly newsletter, The Museflash. That's just one more way to keep in touch and share stories. The Community page also includes an email link. Use it to inquire about appearances at your civic group, book club, church, or other event. And let me know what you're thinking -- about the website or anything else. I love talking to people about books and writing and finding magic in the world and I want this website to be a place to do that with the people who have embraced me and my words, a place where there is a lot of "I feel the same way" and "I know exactly what you mean." I hope you'll join the conversation.
