Happy Holidays for 2019
I hope that your Thanksgiving and Christmas, Hanukkah, or other seasonal observance was filled with joy, laughter and love, and I sincerely wish you every good thing in the New Year.
Those of you who have followed the development of Wounded Angels know that I based my main character, Maureen, primarily on my mother-in-law, Charlotte. Maureen, however, is a composite of many people, men and women, that I have known who lost a significant other after many years in a close, loving relationship. Other than Charlotte, Sadie was the most prominent. This holiday season, Sadie fought a host of physical setbacks and on December 21, returned home to God, to her beloved husband Ed, and to Eddie and Cheryl, two of her children who predeceased her. Sadie read an early draft of Wounded Angels and said that she loved Maureen and hated Doris, which I considered a high compliment. I only wish that I could have had the opportunity to give her a finished copy of the book.
