Another Award-winning Novel

Okay, if we’re going to talk books, you know I’ll mention my award winning novels first off…but hang in there, because after I introduce you to my work, I’ll be telling you about some of the other wonderful books that I’ve been reading – Yep, writers do find time to read, actually we make time, even if it means a frozen dinner or a pizza night.

Girl Child was the first book published andat the Florida Biennial it won the 2007 National League of American Pen Women First Place Award for Published Fiction.

It’s a novel rich with emotion, humor and tenderness…a novel about one woman’s coming of age, surviving America’s Great Depression and finding a friendship so special it outlives life.

Trust, love and friendship—Abigail; Lannigan searched for these things all her life; now, when she is at the tail end of her years she teams up with a free-spirited young woman, a stranger from nowhere, who suddenly moves in across the street. It’s an unlikely friendship that comes under suspicion when a distant relative claims embezzlement. One million dollars is missing and only Abigail knows the truth about what happened, but she’ll never get the chance to tell.
