Monday—The Reading Corner: Xericity

First things first...

Of, pertaining to, or adapted to a dry environment

My novel got a new home and a new name!

For the sake of continuity, I've moved the book to its own website, so it is now all in one place.  Because the domain name was not available for The Meadows, I had to change the title to something else, so I chose, Xericity, which means, "of, or pertaining to, or adapted to a dry environment."

It's a private blog, so if you are interested in reading it, please send me your email address, and I'll be more than happy to put you on the reader list!

It's a complete work of fiction,'ll see why as the story progresses.


I have a fun movie that I'd like to recommend!  We watched it last night on Comcast.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel  ★   ★   ★   ★   

The story of a group of British retirees who travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel.  Wonderful character development, fantastic actors, and just a great, heartwarming story!  

Released in 2012, directed by John Madden, PG-13
