Jubilee!

What a year this has been! So much going on between juggling sickness (I just got over pneumonia, thus my absence once again) and loads of deadlines for my two publishers ~ bio sheets, book cover design sheets, edits/revisions, final edits (galleys) and a host of other activities. Today I am celebrating...me! It's my 50th birthday! Wow, did I really just write that? Those are a few words I'd like to edit! Actually, life is very good and I'm very content, humbled, and excited beyond belief that I have three books scheduled for release in 2012-2013.


It's been such a whirlwind that I haven't even had time to order my photos from my head shots that I had taken this summer by my talented cousin, Kristen LaValley Walters. So here I am, what do you think? Any of the pics are available in varying finishes and these haven't even had their final touches yet.


So with all this talk about edits and polishing and all of the hard work that I've been doing this year ~ my year of preparation as I've been calling it ~ I hope to spend time in my 50th year, my Jubilee year, and ask the Lord to do a little polishing of me personally and to refine my relationship with Him. So follow along, I will try to be more consistent in my posting. I'm so grateful for you all!

  1. Happy birthday, Carla! Welcome to the 50s. It's a great decade. We're old enough to have learned a great deal but young enough to enjoy many of the things we've always dreamed of doing.

    I love the photos. They're all great.

  9. Carla, back in August I too reached that dreaded age of 39 years and 132 months...I still can't say it. You are braver than I am. :) This is the beginning of the rest of our lives. We have 50 years until we are 100. See, doesn't that make you feel good?! I just love being a blessing! Can't wait to read "The Shadow Catcher’s Daughter." Hope you have a blessed Christmas.
