Looking back at 2015

WG Logo 2015-04

Hi everyone – Winnie Griggs here.  As 2015 draws to a close I wanted to take a quick look back at the year and take a moment to reflect on the many great things, big and small, that took place.

On The writing front, I had two new books and a novella published.



I also attended three great writers conferences and four fabulous reader events. The most fun things about these events are the opportunities I had to connect with old friends and make new ones.



Lots of great things happened on the personal front as well.

My youngest daughter got married.

We took a family vacation to Hawaii

And a mother-daughter trip to New York

And of course there were all the fun family gatherings – I am convinced I have the best family in the whole wide world – extended family members included!!


Now I’m looking forward to 2016 and hoping for another great memory-making time.

Wishing all of you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
