An Elastic Acrostic #Six-Sentence Poem

Easy to use, it fits round my waist.

Lazy I’m not, but it’s what I wear most.

All I do is pull up my pants.

Stylish or not, it’s what I like best,

Takes the hassle out of getting dressed.

Independent I am with no buttons or snaps.

Carrying myself, I wear it with pride.

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.
