I’ve lately been working on the 4th book in the Blue House Series, Serenade of the Cattails. This book, as the others in the series, is set in the 1960s. What a very different world that period is from the one we live in now. Or is it? Or not so much, huh? Crazy times call for crazy, or at least odd, characters. I really like Mary Bolton, a pretty much eccentric old gal who is chock full of old wives tales and off the beaten path beliefs. She shapes the story in ways that take the reader to very different places and she loves the cattails.
