Drum roll, please!

Drum roll, please! After 20+ years (and several makeovers) on my old multiple websites, I am delighted to have a spiffy new site to share with you!

Life has a way of calling the shots. Last year, Peggy (my longtime webmistress and assistant) married, moved to Portugal, and retired. Lovely for Peggy and I wish her and Rene all happiness. But also a clear signal from the Universe that it was time for me to get serious about a new website.

A friend recommended Mark Wiard, a web designer in Colorado, and when we talked, I liked what I heard. Working together (and with graphics artist Jenny Hancey, who created the slides), Mark and I came up with a site design that includes all the books: my 3 mystery series and the dozen Robin Paige mysteries that Bill and I wrote together, my 3 stand-alone novels and the recent novellas, and the memoirs and other nonfiction. Plus this blog and some of the resource material from the old China Bayles site.

Big job. Big, hairy scary job, I don’t mind telling you.

But I persisted, Mark was skilled and patient, and I’m over the moon with the result. I’ll double post for a while, here and over at the old Typepad address, to make sure that all LifeScapes readers get the message.

Life is a process, isn’t it? Thanks for being part of mine.

Reading note. The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.–Amelia Earhart

  1. I miss your herbal newsletters and information about upcoming new books, my e-mail address has changed, actually I have two and my education account thinks your mailing is phishing. Please change your e-mails to me via my g-mail address as I am indicating below. Thank you! So much enjoy your writing that I have purchased all previous books written through the years💐

  2. Just finished DEADLINES and LOVED IT! I always read your books as soon as they are available and am anxious for FAULT LINES!!

  3. I’m an avid mystery reader and glad to find a new source of them for me. I remember you as Dean Wittig many years ago at Newcomb College

  4. I’m glad to be over here on WordPress, Elizabeth–everything is all together and much more accessible. Glad you were able to reconnect!

  5. Oh thank goodness, I’ve missed your blog so much. It just wasn’t working with my computer for some reason.
    New website is impressive, so glad to connect with you again.

  6. Thank you, Sherry! I’ll post here more often than on the Typepad blog–it’s easier and more fun.

  7. We’re working on that now, Eleanor. It’s a bit complicated–more later. (Thanks for asking!)

  8. Definitely spiffy. Will your old web site users be automatically included ?
