Welcome to my blog Upstate Girl, (a.k.a Follow Your Bliss Part II), I am an independently published author. This blog is all about writing and the stuff that inspires me to write, the joys and obstacles that come along with the writer's life, and my fascination with the psychology of people and what makes them tick...the human condition, as is...and my love for words, playing with them and making sense of them...and I throw in a few photos from my acre of the world just to make things pretty...sometimes there are things I have no words for, only pictures will do.

*Copyright notice* All photos, writing, and artwork are mine (
© Laura J. Wellner), unless otherwise noted, please be a peach, if you'd like to use my work for a project or you just love it and must have it, message me and we'll work out the details...it's simple...JUST ASK, please.

National Free Comic Book Day...and my book signing at Fat Cats

Here I am at the book signing for local authors at Fat Cats in Johnson City NY...

Me and my Fred...and of course...I had my pencils and sketchbook on hand to keep my busy hands and mind busy while sitting still...

And to top off the day...the Kentucky Derby, Mine That Bird and Calvin Borel at 50-1
What an awesome bit of riding on a muddy track!

You have some fine photography on the posts below. Best of luck with the books. :) Thanks for your visit to my blog. It's nice to know there are more people available to help care for the critters.
