One of the world’s best inventions was the book. I can’t imagine what life would be like without them. I’ve met thousands of new people and visited places all around the globe without leaving my comfy chair. This is something every reader has in common with writers. We all love the written word.

For the first time, The St Petersburg Times reviewed one of my books and it couldn’t be a more lovely review! Here’s the link to the review written by Times Staff Writer, Kate Brassfield.

And Now They Are Seven!

Some of you may know that my son Ian and I made a mad dash to Dallas and back last week. My sister and her husband adopted four children and the court date came up too late for us to fly. So I picked Ian up at college and off we drove, making it in only 2 days. The following day was the big adoption, with a party our family threw for them on their return. We left to come back to Florida on Friday morning and made it safely home last Saturday night (late!). Getting ready for Christmas after that trip has been a bit of a challenge, but we managed to pull off most of the things that had to get done.

However, I could not have missed the adoption party for my new niece and nephews!!! They are the best bunch of kids and I couldn’t be happier for the entire family! It certainly brought home the true meaning of Christmas to my family and me: Love.

I hope each of you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
