Thank you, Christine, for that lovely tribute. What a wonderful inspiration you are to all writers, especially our Guild members who are constantly striving and working on their writing. You are welcome to come back and visit us any time you are available. I would love to meet you in person. And congratulations on your books!

Thank you, Mela! I am very humbled and honored by your words. As you know, Norma died too young and I'm sorry she never got to see the fruits of her labor from the seeds she sowed into my life. I will always be grateful to both Norma Atkins and the Canton Writers' Guild. I will keep your offer in mind next time I plan to visit Canton. Now that I know author Julie Anne Lindsey (we both have Jackie Michard as our editor at Merit Press/Adams Media) is in the CWG, I'll have a point of contact. Wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving!
