Our last family bike ride was in 2019 and three countries ago. There wasn’t anything particularly special I remember about the trip. We might have been taking in the recycling, grabbing groceries, maybe dropping my daughter off at school. In the Netherlands, we rode our bikes daily, biking was our family transportation. Moving to Europe provided my daughter to grow up on her bike. I didn’t bother buying a car in either Germany or The Netherlands. Why would I went biking was so convenient and less costly? If I had a car and wanted to part it downtown, parking for a day was 28 euros. If I took my bike, I could find paid parking for 5 euros, but most of the parking was free. And at the door of the shop. It was a simple decision to make. Well, unless there were 40 Km winds and rain. Then we looked to public transportation. Still, and easy choice.
I found Hailey Edwards Gemini Series from another Author. It is always nice when an author whose books I enjoy; shares whose books they are reading. The protagonist, Camille Ellis is a Gemini. Gemini’s are born twinned and have special powers. The Earthen Conclave hired Camille to investigate fae murderers and to keep the fae population secret from humans. As part of her capacity as a Conclave Agent, Camille is following the trail of a serial killer who is killing fae. When the latest victim’s brother barges his way into her investigation, Camille’s world is turned upside down.
I started thinking about my 2021 goals by reflecting on my 2020 goals. Like many other people, I didn’t meet many of my goals. There were many reasons, most related to the Covid Pandemic. It is difficult to carve out time and money for writing, editing, and publishing while moving countries, quarantining in a different country than my office, having my kids laptop die and so mine became the sole computer between us. Add on the homeschooling, couch surfing, home-finding adventures, and to sum it all up, I reached half of my author 2020 goals. To be honest, I am proud of what I accomplished.
