All That Makes Life Bright is the third "True Romance" I have done, the others were about Henry Longfellow and then Sir Walter Scott. I'm so glad you liked it :-) Thank you for your note, and I wish you the best :-)

Short Story "Drive By Reception"

*In light of the quarantine and the effect it's having on my niece's wedding, I submit this short story I wrote several years ago but which had an odd relevance now. Happy Quarantine, everyone, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Kimberly Hi Josi! I'm rereading "To Have or to Hold" at the moment. I had to tell you, it's refreshing to read a novel that is placed in Utah that doesn't take place in South Salt Lake. It seems like most people think that Northern Utah ends at Salt Lake. They forget Bountiful and all the lovely cities that are north of there. :)
