Technology can be powerful. But it’s also like a spouse. You can’t live with it; you can’t live without it. If I had a dollar for every time I wanted to throw my computer, tablet, or iPhone out the window because it wasn’t working properly, I would probably have enough money to hire someone to develop technology that would always work. On the other hand, there are powerful companies like WordPress, who have demonstrated they don’t care about their customers by ending support for their much-loved classic editor. Then again, if everything worked the way it should, life would be boring, wouldn’t it?

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.
