We're very Doc Hollywood!

Although we were Catholic, my mother used to have a brass menorah on her mantel. I think she got it at a garage sale. She loved it so much that I decided to put it in my third turtle, Custer and His Naked Ladies. I can remember how the candlestick bothered my aunt. I think she was worried that the pope might stop by and discover it.

Kwanzaa-I guess Kwanzaa is in full swing. I don’t get out much, so I’m not sure. I’d never get any work done if I lived downtown. I’d spend half my day looking out my window because we’re real big on parades here. We have parades to announce the daffodil season, homecoming, Christmas, Easter, and even a cattle drive down our main street to celebrate the beginning of the Puyallup Fair. I’m sure we’ll have a Kwanzaa Parade soon. We’re very Doc Hollywood here!

LOL-I see my novels are still listed on an erotic Internet site—I have no idea how they got picked up. There are going to be some really disappointed customers out there in cyberspace when they find out the only sexy things in my books are the queens in the canasta cards!
