Pilots and Violets

The manuscript I've been working on for over a year

Watching the Violets

is complete!

I sent it to my publisher just seconds ago.

Heart felt thanks to all of you who have supported me.

Thank you, Rick Walton, for urging me to take this from a short story to a novel.
It's been one of the most difficult, but most worthwhile, journeys of my life.

Thank you, Tristi, for your comments and remarks and suggestions.
And your friendship . . . you're the best!

Thank you, Grace. I hope your trip went well and that I get to meet you in person one day soon.

Thank you, Victoria, for your help and interest.

Thank you, John, for letting me see your biplane.
Sitting in the cockpit conjured new ideas in my mind that I believe have made the story even stronger.

Thank you, as always, to my Aunt Bass.
Her love and belief in me are the wind beneath my wings.

Thanks also to:

Matt
Elizabeth
Len
Kathy
Jane
Dorothy
Jan
Kelly
Mary
and Carol Lynn

...and to everyone else who touched my life and this story in any way.

Thank you!

Thank you, Jennie. This one is a YA with a character very much like the character in the epilogue of my novel My Gift to You. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
