I have three exciting announcements to share with you today. First of all, fellow author and blogger Patty Fletcher recently interviewed me for her podcast, Talk to TELL-IT-TO-THE-WORLD Marketing. We discussed my books, and I shared a bit of information about myself. You can click here to listen or access the podcast on your favorite app. Alternatively, you can do what I did and ask your Amazon smart speaker to play the latest episode of The Talk to TELL-IT-TO-THE-WORLD Marketing podcast.
Second, I’ll again be participating in the WyoPoets monthly virtual reading, and you’re invited. You can share a poem or two of your own or just listen. Here are the details.
WyoPoets is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
This event is open to anyone who wants to share or listen to poetry. You
don’t have to be a member of WyoPoets. You don’t even have to be in Wyoming
to participate. So, feel free to invite your friends!

The first twenty poets to sign up will get to read. Additional poets will be

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?
