Jan I was glad to find you here, Beth. I know we "run intd" each other lots of places on line, but don't interact that much, which is too bad. I love Colorado, BTW--lived there for two years in Colorado Springs back in the 1960s. I see we've read a lot of the same books and often rated them the same. I still need to add a lot. I hope you have continued good luck with your writing career. I'm testing out the indie waters.
