A New Year

ShirleyIconHappy New Year, Everyone!  2015 is a time for new beginnings and, even in this troubled world, a hope for the future.  January sees me returning to teach after a productive and enjoyable sabbatical.  I was also given the opportunity to spend time with my granddaughter, Zoey, who like a glowing light, illuminates my every step and continues to bring me immeasurable joy.  I wish I could offer all of you one of the delicious Hanukkah cookies we baked together.


Professionally, I am very happy to announce the publication of my book, The Music Makers, which has received a favorable review from Kirkus.  The book is now available online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  Additionally, the first chapter of the The Music Makers, “Virginia,” has been chosen as Scriggler’s “Publication of the Day” for January 10th.  Please check it out.  Also, look for my announcement for an upcoming book signing.  Until then, stay cuddly and warm in this deep freeze.
