1. Tickled to Death Department
    Exciting happenings!
    I'm thrilled that my newest book, In the Shadow of Alabama' is now available for pre-order from Amazon. Still Life With Elephant was released in Germany in 2008 under the title "Fruhstuck Mit Elefant" and was selected as a promotional item by Dunkin' Donuts! I am delighted to be selected by a company that makes one of my favorite foods.
  2. Appearances! Come on down!
    Readings, book signings, etc.
    My previous engagements include: An appearance on Satellite XM channel 155. Fiction Nation with Kim Alexander. A reading from Still Life and talking about elephants at the 'Equine Affair' in Springfield, Mass., which was great fun, it's always great to be with horse people. Hope you all had wonderful Chanukah and Christmas holidays and a new year ahead filled with good health and love and family and friends and animals. In the meantime, you can catch up with my horsey and other adventures on my blog. And I've been busy at work writing another book. Will tell you all about it after I finish the first draft. I have become a foster mom for three baby elephants, which means that I donate money to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, and it goes toward their care. They are the most precious creatures! I was also lucky and honored to be able to have my picture taken with the magnificent Fritha, a 35 year old Asian elephant who had been rescued many years ago. She ate about a dozen ears of corn and a big bag of apples to keep her happy during the photo shoot. It was the biggest thrill in the world. She and I will be on the inside back cover of my book. Still Life With Elephant has been recorded for Books on Tape. ​It's available now!
