To all of you who have wondered what has happened to me and more specifically Chapter 14 and further chapters:

First and foremost, I apologize for not letting anyone know what was happening and for not replying to your emails.

I have had a tremendous amount of domestic problems to deal with " my children, ex-wife, myself, and not least of which, my health.

Insofar as my health is concerned, I apparently have an aortic valve that is not doing what it should be doing and surgery hangs in the future " when I don't know exactly. I don't like doctors, or hospitals, and having worked in surgery, I certainly don't care for surgery. But it is going to be necessary.

Therefore, while I had started on chapter 14, I simply had to put it aside and deal with all the other problems.

Anyway, don't give up, keep checking and say a prayer for inspiration. Harlequin
