When Life Gives you Lemons...

... they say make lemonade.  Sometimes that's a little harder than others, depending on the lemons.  I'm back here in Laguna Beach, California, which is never a bad place to be, though it wasn't my intention.  When I left for Australia and the South Pacific a few months ago, I'd thought I would slowly work myself to SE Asia and then back to Europe to spend another summer in my second home, Budapest.  Unfortunately, life had other plans.  I was in New Caledonia when I found out that I have intermediate stage prostate cancer.  And so, here I am, back at home and spending days consulting with doctors, having tests done, and trying to formulate a treatment plan.  It's a diagnosis nobody wants to hear, but fortunately I have options and the support of my friends and family.  Just another bump in the road...

In the meantime, I'm still writing, I've released my thriller novel Russia Girl and the second book in the series, Vendetta Girl, is on the way.  The sun is shining and summer is on the way.  Hopefully, by the end of it I'll head back to Europe for a visit and put this episode in the rear view mirror.
