Mom in Her Writing Nook ...

She was working on the "About the Authors" section of "Echoes Across the Blue Ridge" when I captured this one morning. Though you can't see it, her coffee cup was within gentle reach that morning. Roxie is at her feet.

Please check with Margaret. It is my understanding that Taylor Reese and I are both invited because of the two "moon" books that are co-written. We are looking forward to coming to this event again .

I am not the brightest with computers. Ihope I've done this right.
