IN THE PROCESS

It’s been a while since I’ve checked in and I apologize for that lapse.  I am busily working on my second epistle and it keeps my mind occupied in ways I had not anticipated.  This does keep me busy and totally preoccupied so that I often forget to do anything I should be doing.  Have […]

ANOTHER BOOK CLUB ADVENTURE

And the beat goes on and on and on…Had another book club adventure with the ladies and gents of the Fireside Readers at the Red Deer Public Library this past week.  It was a lively discussion and the folks were so generous with their comments and great questions.  I am working diligently toward my next […]

A WONDERFUL TIME WAS HAD BY ALL

SUMMER UPDATE

Its August already.  I thought Bend Like the Willow sales would slow considerably but they continue ….Thanks, I appreciate the support.  I am still getting offers to speak from book clubs and libraries so I am more than grateful for the continuing support.  I intend to do some updating on the book itself, so stay […]

BOOK CLUBS, I love you

I spent yesterday with a wonderful group of women here in Red Deer.  They asked amazing questions and were very welcoming.  Love that even after two years I still get to do these presentations and spend time talking about my book.  Every meeting is different and every meeting teaches me something new.  It is a […]

Its March Already

Can’t believe it’s March 2014 already.  Bend Like the Willow continues to sell and I am about to run another load so I have them on hand for the upcoming events.  I continue to meet with people who hear my story and want to talk.  I have met some wonderful, caring people this way in […]

LATEST BOOK EVENT UPDATE

Had a wonderful book event last weekend. (February 8).  The ladies of the Carstairs Bookies invited me to attend their discussion of Bend Like the Willow-Tale of an Arab Promise.  It was out in the country on a cold night and took some motivation to even get up and go there.  So glad I did. […]
