You Are the Best of Friends!

May 16, 2022

Yes, I Am Still Here

Travel, anniversary, surgery, illness, more travel. I feel as if I have been out of the loop for some time. Today I write from Chicago. Those who know my family understand that non-stop fun has exhausted me. However, it is important that I announce the publication of Roots, Shoots, and Blooms.

Do Not Stop Reading!

Please go to Amazon and order the anthology of Roots, Shoots, and Blooms which contains two of my pieces. This project was the culmination of a year’s work by Shut Up and Write North Phoenix writers group. It was so much fun, that a sequel is planned for 2023. 

Your purchase will get you a place on my friends list in ink. A review posted on Amazon exclaiming the absolute excellence of this publication will place you on the list in stone. Remember to purchase copies for gifts for which you get your name gold plated. (Editor’s note: none of these promises are literal.)

All of us at Shut Up and Write thank you. 

For more information about the Shut Up and Write Meet Up, visit There are opportunities throughout the world for online and live meetings. The local group has made COVID tolerable and has been extremely supportive of my efforts to translate thoughts into written words. 

While you are at it:

Go to my blog at and subscribe if you haven’t already. Any difficulty subscribing, let me know and I will get you on this exclusive list. 

Let’s be honest here, 

for me, the best part of my blogging has been the support from my readers. You truly are the best of friends!
