COMPROMISE Book Birthday

Yesterday was the Book Birthday of COMPROMISE, my 9th published book. A very exciting day. It generally takes me a long time to complete a book. My 8th book released in September of 2020 and the 7th book (4th in The Second Chances Series) released in 2019. So it takes right at a year for…

Gorgeous New England

We got back late on October 11 from a 7 day trip to Maine followed by 3 days in New Hampshire. Our last trip was in 2018. We’ve been fortunate to make almost twenty trips to New England starting with my first year as an elementary school principal. I lived in Massachusetts when I was…
