I’m pleased to announce that my new book, Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me, is now available from Bookshare, a service providing material in accessible formats for those with difficulty reading due to visual or other disabilities. If you subscribe, you can download the book here.

As a result, reader Sue Brasel reached out through my contact form and told me how much she enjoyed the book. I asked her to either send me a review or leave one on Amazon or Smashwords. She responded that she read it on Bookshare, which doesn’t have an option for leaving reviews, and sent me the following. Thank you, Sue.

This is a book of a hopeful Thanksgiving that blends into a peaceful, cherished Christmas scenario. The characters have lifelike qualities with believable attitudes.

Front cover image contains: elderly woman in red sweater sitting next to a window.

Sixteen-year-old Natalie’s grandmother, suffering from dementia and confined to a wheelchair, lives in a nursing home and rarely recognizes Natalie. But one Halloween night, she tells her a shocking secret that only she and Natalie’s mother know. Natalie is the product of a one-night stand between her mother, who is a college English teacher, and another professor.

After some research, Natalie learns that people with dementia often have vivid memories of past events. Still not wanting to believe what her grandmother has told her, she finds her biological father online. The resemblance between them is undeniable. Not knowing what else to do, she shows his photo and website to her parents.

Natalie realizes she has some growing up to do. Scared and confused, she reaches out to her biological father, and they start corresponding.

Her younger sister, Sarah, senses their parents’ marital difficulties. At Thanksgiving, when she has an opportunity to see Santa Claus, she asks him to bring them together again. Can the jolly old elf grant her request?

If you have an Amazon Echo speaker, you can also listen by asking Alexa to play the Talk to TELL-IT-TO-THE-WORLD Marketing podcast. It’s also available from Google and otheer sources. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon, can you?

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

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.

How I Learned About Sex, a Vagina and a Penis #Reblog #Sunday Surprise

Several weeks ago, after I answered a series of raunchy questions on the TMI Tuesday Blog, I received a comment from a blogger, inviting me to send work to a site that publishes stories by women about their vaginas. I just happened to have such a story I wrote years ago. I originally titled it “Birds and Bees,” but I hope you’ll agree the title this blogger gave it is much catchier. Enjoy!
