Technology is like a spouse in that you can’t live with it and you can’t live without it. Years ago, when I was using dial-up Internet service, I decided to switch to a different provider that charged less. I called the second provider and signed up, then typed in the configuration and phone numbers and tried to get online, but the connection failed. I spent two hours on the phone with a technical support representative, trying to resolve the issue. Finally, he said, “Why don’t you call back tomorrow when an expert will be here?” I did, and I was finally able to get back on the Internet.

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.
