There are many (too many!) clichés about growing old(er). The one I like best is, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” I have a lifetime of stories to tell and a lifetime of experience to build them on. I’ve done genealogical research for at least 40 years, and believe me, there’s a story in every faded document and every crumbling tombstone I’ve ever stumbled across. I’ve been fortunate to do some traveling, and the ideas for The Showboat Affair and The Face on Miss Fanny’s Wall came from chance encounters on trips right here in the state where I live.
To win a copy of one of my books (your choice—print or ebook) visit my website and email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a quote from Chapter 1 of The Showboat Affair. Hopefully, it will whet your appetite for the whole story! (And there's a bonus prize you ladies are guaranteed to love!) I'll draw a name on Valentine Day and notify you if you're the winner!
For me, every today is the someday I promised myself.
