For someone like me with a visual impairment, learning to use a laptop can be frustrating. But we’re not the only ones who can have trouble, as evidenced by the post I’m sharing today. Author Stevie Turner talks about her first day’s experience with a laptop supplied by her employer. She decided to start working from home to limit possible exposure to COVID. But after reading this, I hope she’s not thinking that having the coronavirus might be a better option. I also hope that her more technologically savvy husband can help her get things straightened out.


Today has been the day that I began to work from home to save catching the Rona, which seems to be accelerating at an alarming rate. At 08:00 this morning I arrived at the hospital’s I.T Department to collect a laptop. I have never, ever, used a laptop before.

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.
