Summer Down Under!

Ah, life is good when the summer is endless!  One of the great things about life as an itinerant writer is the option of flying south for the winter.  Not that winters in Southern California are so bad, but for the next few months I've decamped for the milder climes of Australia.

I'm here visiting good friends at Lilli Pilli Beach in New South Wales, four hours south of Sydney, to relax and and pound out my latest novel revisions.

Ironically, the high temperature down here at the moment (in summer) is identical to what it was in California (in winter), when I left just a few days ago.  Both are round 73 degrees (23 C) for a high, but here in Australia it gets dark at 8:30 p.m. instead of 5 p.m., and the temps are much more pleasant at night.

So, no, I'm not struggling through the epic cold weather that they are currently experiencing in the eastern U.S., but my heart does go out to you all there!  I was actually born in Cleveland, Ohio, where I am sure it is downright frigid at the moment.  All I can say to any east-coasters or midwesterners is, hang in there and I'll keep you in my thoughts!
