I hope to see amazing sites, meet interesting people, and share my written work...Jim's story.

Amazing words for "It's Lonely Here in Hell" Love Letters from Nam

I am so impressed with your treatment of this so very dear to me subject but over and above my feelings I applaud you for finally bringing the human aspect of an actual soldier to life and showing the world that there truly were real live members of our military that gave their lives, not in vain but to protect us at all cost. Jimmy was only 4 years younger than me when he first came into my life but I was a married woman at 19 and he was not yet driving. I remember how I so loved who he was at the moment I first met him and how special his relationship was with his family. I have such fond memories of swimming in the pool with the boys and playing games with them. Mostly I remember the special depth and spirit of this young man. He, as you know was always, from a very young age a very very special person. This family was so blessed to have had the Blessing of knowing him. My children grew up hearing of Jimmy and he has always been a special treasure to us. Thank you for this precious gift and your understanding of the need of your respecting Michelle's need to find a special tribute to this very special human being who put his life on the line and knew more at his age about love and commitment than most any other human being I have ever known.

Thank you and God Bless You!

Photo at radio interview

So, as you can see, an interview on the radio is not conducive to eye contact communication...thats me back there behind the mic and other assorted radio station stuff:)

Thank you all for your support and encouragement:)

More good words for my latest release....

Hi Charity,
I would like to thank you for giving Ken a copy of your book. I started to read it and could not put it down. Filled with true feeling and passion. I feel as if I know Jim from this reading. . . touching! He shared such beautiful emotion in his letters to his young wife Micki. Thank you for the rendering for us to share. I know when Ken was in the Army in 1964 to 1966 (we were engaged) and we always lived with the fear that he would have to serve in Vietnam. Fortunately, he did not have to. I feel blessed that here we are 45 married years later and still together - many were not so fortunate. It makes your heart ache for those young soldiers and their loved ones that were then and even today are going through these same feelings. Thank you for the energy and time you put into this book. A true love story.

Flight is booked!

Heading to Tennessee early in December for two book signings and hopefully a quick tour of Nashville...I hear the Grand Ol' Opry is not to be missed.
Micki will be joining me on this trip, her first in many years without Larry by her side, but I think she will have a good time. She is so proud and excited to have Jim's story told, reiterating every chance she gets that she feels its not only Jim's story, but everyl soldiers story...the lonely reality.
