Stoneybrook West Book Club

What a wonderful time with the Stoneybrook West Book Club! We ate Italian food and talked about both of my books, leaving this author’s heart full of excitement and gratitude.

Both books were accepted!

The Difference and The Visitor were both accepted into the Indie Author Project, which is “a publishing community that includes public libraries, authors, curators, and readers working together to connect library patrons with great indie-published books.” What an honor.
