"Rules for Being Human"

     I wasn’t sure I would write a blog post this month.  On October 26th my young nephew, Cody, lost his long, hard battle with cancer and my husband, Barry and I gathered with family and friends in Fargo, ND to honor his passing and celebrate his life.  After a loss of this magnitude, I…See More

"Hi Donna, Again, this looks amazing!  I am sorry I will not be here to attend.  I can't think of a more appropriate venue than the Mark Twain house ... so cool!  Thanks for thinking of me!"

Brenda, thank you for your kind note. I'll take a closer look at your novel. I lived for a few years in Houston and loved Texas. This is a wonderful group and also highly recommend Goodreads, as well.

Nice meeting you, too!
