Goodbye to 2012

The Mayans were wrong. The world didn’t end, but 2012 will end shortly. I am excited for all the new things in my future even though I haven’t got a clue as to what they may be. Something I always do this time of year is to look back and name all the surprises, good and bad, that have happened in the past twelve months: births, deaths, books published, successes, failures, prizes and presents, unexpected changes, wonders and amazing things.

I have much to be thankful for in 2012. The top five are:

1) My soul-mate survived a heart attack.
2) A granddaughter was born beautiful and healthy.
3) My first YA book, EDGE OF ESCAPE, was published in Germany.
4) My scare with breast cancer was a false alarm.
5) My last YA book, SHELTERED, was featured on 70 websites.

What are YOU thankful for in 2012?
