A new edition of my memoir, From Hindsight to Insight, a Traditional to Metaphysical Memoir, was recently released. It features many new stories from my life about themes and family happenings that we all contend with.

Her Triumph, the 4th and last book in the Laura's Dash Series
The event will be held at the Avid Reader bookstore, at 1945 Broadway, Sacramento, 95818, from 2 pm until 5 pm.
Come join me for refreshments, readings, free paperback, kindle, and audiobooks, and prizes for the most interesting photograph or news story about a historical event that took place between 1938 and 1963.
So, dig out your old albums and scrapbooks, find those hidden treasures you saved, and come share them.

No Problem! Join the fun on Monday, June 20th., for the online launch via Zoom!
