After a lifetime of writing, at 70 I've finally published my first novel. This website, and this blog, is me trying to take myself seriously as a writer, and me trying to get people to read the book. The book is a love story -- about a couple, sure -- but also about love of place, and a group of women who changed each others' lives. It deserves to be read. With this blog, I'll let you know how the book is faring. I'll also let you know what I'm learning as a self-published author. And I'll probably also comment on the world every once in a while.
