May I share some good news? My last novel, The Family in the Mirror, was selected as one of five finalists in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards Contest, general fiction category. And to my delight, my friend and fellow writer, Bill Finger, won a finalist award in the memoir category. He wrote The Crane Dance: Taking Flight in Midlife while we were members in the same writing group, and contributed greatly to my effort.

As the NC Writers Network so aptly puts it “no one writes alone.”
