MEETING LOUISE PENNY IN PERSON!!!

Earlier in one of my blogs I talked about how excited I was to hear Louise Penny in person! I e-mailed ahead to ask for front seats for my friend Edlyn Theiss and me, because there were almost 500 people and I knew I would not be able to hear. The Cuyahoga County Library System is one of the best in the country and they were amazing! They had a loop ready for me to use with my hearing aids and took me right down to the front row center in front of Louise. Because I made the reservations early, I was one of 100 people asked to stay and get my book personalized! She had autographed a book with her name for every person there. When I reached her, a library employee offered to take my picture. I whispered in her ear that I was the one writing articles based on her book for Cure Today. She knew all about it! When I got home and looked at my book she had put “thank you for your kindness!” I cried and was so happy! She is not only a fantastic author but a class act.

I also made the number one of all the articles published in Cure Today for November - see the video on the video page.

Finally I heard from Cure that they are considering one of my articles for a print version which goes to every oncologist’’s office in the country - more on that later.

I am struggling as a new writer and all of these events encourage me so much! Thank you all for your support and following my journey with me!
