Hello and welcome back Guys and Gals!

Fabulous Summertime Reads

What books are tucked away in your beach bag this summer? on your Kindle? lying next to the bed on the night-table?

Keep them coming!  It has long been my hope that Veronica's Grave would shed light and bring understanding to a neglected problem -- that of children who have been silenced for a lifetime by family secrets.

The Week that Was

Hello, Everyone!

This past week has been a whirlwind of activity, centering on the book launch of Veronica's Grave May 9th at the New York Society Library. Rather than tell you about it, I’m going to share a Facebook post written by another She Writes Press author, Marcia Mabee:

A Washington D.C./Virginia resident, I just happened to be in New York City accompanying my husband who is attending a conference. When I saw that Barbara's book was trending No. 1 on the New York Post, I sent her a note congratulating her and asking if, by chance, she would be doing an author event. She enthusiastically invited me to attend her fabulous event at the New York Society Library -- the oldest library in New York, founded by Alexander Hamilton.

Such losses may be due to death, incarceration, or even divorce. I wanted to share this piece with you, for in an ideal world no child would ever be left to grieve alone.
