After two years, my granddaughter asked to see Santa again. We were happy to learn that she no longer felt uneasy around him, and wanted to advise him of her wish list for Christmas. She enjoyed a long conversation with him and left feeling happy and the hope he shared with her for the best Christmas ever.
This is the time of year when families come together to enjoy the peace and harmony of the holidays. The cookies are baked; the tables are set and all is festive.The decorated tree is proudly standing in the living room, covered by bright lights and shiny ornaments . The fireplace is lit and creating the warmth of Winter. All the gifts are opened and we are all happy and content.
It is now the time to enjoy those who share this holiday with you, and remember those who have gone.
So, I and my family are taking this opportunity to wish you a wonderful holiday filled with cheer, love and happiness, and hope that all good things are waiting for you in the New Year.
Paula and family
HIDDEN HILLS, TRILOGY:
I was very enthralled with the first book and hated to see it come to an end. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next two books. Love the magic and fantasy that just popped out of the pages as I kept reading. I really did not want to put the book down.
The kids were crazy about you, and were definitely bragging to all the other Classes that you came in for them. ( Invited to discuss Hidden Hills and what it is to be a writer).

I just completed all three books of Hidden Hills, and they were great. The Search was a little slow for me to get into, but being a reader, I had to finish it. by the time I did, I had to quickly get into The Selkie book. It kept me on edge and was very exciting. I was truly amazed with the author’s imagination. I was eager for more and had to read the last book immediately after. The Stand ended better than I imagined. I definitely will give these books to my granddaughters.

REVIEW OF JACK OF HEARTS
thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing and gracefully woven story that takes us through a year in the life of a group of teens from the Bronx, New York in the 40’s. The book has romance, rowdiness, a hint of crime and a lot of rebellion. The street gangs at that time were still very much a brotherhood that demonstrated “strength in numbers”. They fought to protect their turf and each other, but more so with fists and knives than guns. Back then it seems the drug of choice was a cigarette.But peer pressure was still a driving force and like the teens of today, these teens also struggle to reconcile who they are, with who they want to be and who everyone else thinks they should be.
I was drawn into the story by a colorful cast of characters, and kept there by the central love story between Toby and Mila. They face challenge and heartache and their romance constantly twists and turns because of their very different backgrounds and values. For both of them, life after love will never be the same.
Likes it a lot. TINA B., Florida
