Wolf Catcher to be released on February 2, 2022

Adding this to my TBR because it looks intriguing. I love that there are true events in the story.

Author Anne Montgomery

The past and present collide when a tenacious reporter seeks information on an eleventh century magician…and uncovers more than she bargained for.

I’m delighted to announce that Touchpoint Press will be releasing my novel Wolf Catcher on February 2, 2022. For lovers of suspense and historical fiction based in fact, I encourage you to take a look.

Kate and Kaya, who are separated by nine centuries, both feel rejected by the societies in which they live and are bound together by one man. The Magician, as he came to be called, was discovered in 1939 when archeologists uncovered a tomb at a remote Northern Arizona site called Ridge Ruin. The man, bedecked in fine turquoise jewelry and intricate beadwork, was surrounded by myriad pots, arrow points, and fine mineral specimens. But it was the wooden swords with handles carved into animal hooves and human hands that the Hopi workers explained identified him as a magician.

Supporting Writers


to get you started on time for the upcoming season.

from C.D. Hersh

The holidays are nearly on us, and with them come extra work decorating the house, the lawn, the trees, baking all those Christmas cookies and goodies, shopping, cleaning, holiday parties to attend and give, and scads of other things that can take you away from your WIP. This year give yourself a head start with a little motivation to sit down at the computer and keep writing. Start planning now for a successful holiday writing season.

Here are a few tips on how to motivate yourself to write during the holidays.

  1. Start your holiday motivation by spending part of one day each week doing some holiday activity that fuels your creativity. If you celebrate Halloween get those decorations made and put up. When that’s accomplished start making Thanksgiving decorations for your table, bake…

Friendsgiving Fall Board

Dried kiwi and apples that don’t turn brown. Thanks, Aunt Juju. I’d love to serve this at a party.

Is anyone celebrating Friendsgiving this year? Please refer to last years post Friendsgiving With the Bombsquad at Cherry Bombe. Last week began their second year of celebrating these fun zoom discussions/demonstrations with “friends” based around food.

If you are gathering together with friends before Turkey Day a Fall/Thanksgiving charcuterie board is a great way to share. I love to make these but go crazy trying to decide on which ingredients to buy and use. So many kinds of meat, cheese, crackers and so on. But having a theme makes it easier.

There are so many homemade recipes that would give your board a personal touch such as dips, marinated veggies, salami roses, parmesan crisps, homemade cookies and the list is endless. I chose not to do that this time as I was short on time and wanted to assemble this before Thanksgiving. See my post Salami Roses for another…

My Food As Ally Breakfast – November 4, 2021

First look at the Food As Ally community, launching in January.

This is the first post, representing a rounded approach to eating and teaching about eating. Food As Ally is about reclaiming our food choices, listening to our hunger and satiety signals, and being supported as we do.

I ate what I wanted, when I wanted, and how much of it I wanted. In doing this today, I discovered that my breakfast smoothie is too filling for me today and that I can wait until I want fruit to eat it. Even if that’s not today. Or tomorrow. If I look at this breakfast from the certified nutrition consultant perspective, there’s nothing wrong with it. I gave myself permission to eat what I wanted and what I wanted tasted good and I’m almost ready to eat again. It kept me full longer than I thought it would.

More discoveries await!
