It’s sad that too many people are so selfish that they won’t change their behavior in order to prevent others from contracting the coronavirus. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, many people traveled in order to be with loved ones, inadvertently picking up the virus in airports and other establishments and passing it on. As a result, the number of cases has risen. Yes, there’s now a vaccine, but not everyone will get it right away, and it doesn’t mean we can stop doing all we can to prevent the spread of the virus. So, this Christmas, I encourage all my readers to make the ultimate sacrifice by staying home, limiting your gatherings to six people, wearing masks, and keeping your social distance at all times during such gatherings. For those used to large holiday family gatherings, this can be hard, but believe me when I say you’re doing a wonderful thing by keeping your loved ones and others safe from this dreadful virus and know that it won’t last forever.

New! The Red Dress
Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books
When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
