Dear Readers,

First, let me apologize that this is not a new chapter. I realize how very long it's been since I've updated any of my stories. I feel terrible because from reading the reviews I can see how much you love these characters. As a reader myself, I know how much it sucks when a writer is slow to post or just ditches a story altogether.

That being said, I am placing all my current WIPs on Hiatus. They will be finished. I am not giving up on them at all. But the truth of the matter is that I've been dealing with health issues, health scares really, that I never thought I would have to face. I've always been a pretty healthy person, rarely ever got sick or even had a cold. Even though I was diagnosed with Diabetes five years ago, I've done what the doctors told me and kept my numbers down. But earlier this summer, I found out that I've developed a heart condition as well.

I won't bore you with the details, but I've always been an active person. And now, I've had to take a drastic step back from things. It's been a humbling experience for me: trying to balance work, school, doctor's appointments, new medications, exhaustion, etc.

So, thank you for reading and caring about my stories. It means a lot. And when things get back on an even keel, I'll be back.

K
