Earlier this week I heard on the news that fewer women were seeking elected offices. It got me thinking about a book I read awhile back, Hidden Power – Presidential Marriages That Shaped Our History. I’ve left it On the Bookshelf. I’d decided to highlight some nonfiction books for a few weeks so this is a good one to start with.
This being Memorial Day Weekend, I want to thank all the veterans in my family and circle of friends. My Cottage Quote is about the importance of telling stories, so I’ve told a few stories about some special veterans. And I’ll be thinking of them Monday as I watch a parade honoring all our service men and women.
Have some exciting news – my first short story, Searching for China, has been published in moonShine review. I was pretty excited when I found out in April. Unfortunately I couldn’t say anything until after the first of May. Kinda tough keeping it a secret 😉 But now the word is out, and so is the journal and the cover is beautiful. And the stories inside are intriguing. I’m honored to be among them.
Come visit A Writer’s Window and read about a special appearance this spring. Then take a Field Trip and see what else I’ve been helping with. I’ve had a full plate this spring – something I’ll tell you about in a few weeks.
