A Proud Moment
Since I feel a personal connection with all of you who've been following "Fabulous Florida Writers,"I wanted to share a very meaningful personal moment. This is a photo of my dad, a 98-years-young WWII veteran whose story was the inspiration for my novel, Jacqueline. He'd been urging me to write the story for a long time, and it is one of my proudest accomplishments to finally be able to put this book in his hands. That's his picture on the cover when he was a handsome young soldier stationed in Rennes, France with the 127th General Hospital. The book is dedicated to him and all the veterans of the Greatest Generation. We owe them a debt we can never repay.
