Bonnie Anne dressed up as Aria Nightingale, a Renaissance fair fairy.
Greetings fans and friends,
I know it has been a very long time since I posted anything on this site. In fact, I have been thinking about shutting it down, given that the focus of my life has changed drastically. I have neglected those of you who at one time did follow my writings here, but real life is now my priority.
My husband is in the mild-moderate stage of Alzheimer’s disease, and although he is still very much present and with me–he does require my care and attention most of the time. In addition to being his full-time caregiver, I have been fighting severe anxiety and depression for the past 3 years. When everything started to spin out of control over the last few months, I decided it was time to seek professional help and I am currently taking prescription medication for the condition.
I continue to find outlets for my creativity on a limited basis, but my writing is now focused on a blog where I journal my husband’s experiences and thoughts, and write from my point of view as his caregiver and wife. I had hoped to follow through with the new novel I started working on a couple of years ago, but I find it very difficult to concentrate my limited energy on such a large undertaking. For now that novel is on the shelf.
There are no updates about Chanson de l’Ange, which is still available through Amazon, Kindle and other booksellers. Book sales continue to surprise me and are easing the financial strain of life changes.
Nathan and I are still working on the Chanson CD as time and energy allow. In addition to his full time job, Nathan has been very busy scoring and doing sound design for a video game. He expects to get back to work on the Chanson CD after the video game launches on May 21.
I think fondly of those that have followed me from the beginning and look forward to sharing the CD release announcement here when the time comes. Meanwhile, I offer my thanks to all who have purchased and loved my Chanson de l’Ange series.
I share a photo of myself dressed as a fairy for a Renaissance fair last Summer. This is something I do for myself as an escape from troubled times. We could all use a little fairy dust in times like these, so consider yourself fairy-dusted!
The Lord Jesus Bless you all,Bonnie Anne
