Story Gift for You

As we’re all being safe and socially isolated, we’re also casting about for entertainment, so my gift today is one of the stories from my newest and available book, Warren County Days — just for you. If you recall from the first book, Opal, our Opal Pratt had kept a change purse savings in hopes some day of having her own television. Most people have them, you know. The title of this story says it all — Queen for a Day.

Most of your local bookstores will order books for you. Online ordering is also available at barnesandnoble(dot)com. Yes, both my Opal and Warren County Days may be purchased through those means.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this.

Reader Review – Warren County

I was so thrilled to receive this from a reader who had just finished Warren County Days.

“Some stories caused me to laugh out loud.
Some surprised me with a different ending
than I had anticipated.
Some were upsetting.
Some brought back memories of my living
with my grand mother & great grand
parents in a community much like
Some were so “country-fiftyish”, I wonder
if the younger readers will believe life
was truly that laid back.

I found the collection heart warming.
Thank you for your work and persistence to bring these stories to life. Now they have become part of my life.

I am going to reread Opal, I’m not ready to say goodbye to her, or her friends.
