I come to you via Esme’s senior Salon. I liked your blog so I followed you. I like reading and finding new authors.

Thanks for visiting my blog and following!

Great interview and great excerpt from the book! Enjoy your tour in Oct!! My best to you!

Darlene I especially enjoyed reading this as we have a short stay in Amsterdam next week. My guess is that it will only make us realize we need to return to explore the country further. How wonderful that you were able to also use the stories of family to enrich your writing.

Have a fabulous trip. Yes, you will wish you had more time in Holland but you can make that another trip! It was great to be able to use some family history as well. xo
