I know I’ve been quiet for a while, but much has been going on.

I have been working with some authors through A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing, so be sure to visit to see some other books Sal & I have been publishing!

However, some of my “works in progress” are still progressing well, so keep checking in for notice of new books on the horizon. 🙂

I’m back and preparing for a new season of events which will include many of our favorite venues. Cape Cod and Yellow Umbrella Books is on the list as well as some new stops near and far from home!

Our sincere thanks for continuing to make each year better than all previous years in many ways! Bok sales continue to be great and eBook sales continue to grow! All seven of my books are available in print as well as on Kindle and Nook!

Keep coming back. I promise to post news regularly. K

On November 18th, Sal and I were guests at the Bedford Women’s Club, Bedford, NH. We spoke to around seventy-five members about our novels and about A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing. We had a wonderful time and I believe our visit was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The Bedford Women’s Club was founded in 1905 as the Child Study Circle and has since served in the interest of community charities. In the early 1940s a scholarship committee was initiated and in 1949 the name was changed to the Bedford Women’s Club (BWC).

Today they enjoy a long history of many delightful women offering their time, talents, and energy toward the continuation of the organization and to benefit the Bedford, NH community.  

Here is a picture, left to right, of Terry, me, Sal & Jackie.

Here are a couple of additional pictures of all the bodacious BWC members.

Our sincere thanks to the Bedford Women’s Club for having us, and especially to Terry and Jackie for asking us to participate and making us feel at home!

I’m looking forward to seeing many old friends and meeting many new friends during these next two weeks, which includes a visit to BAE Systems this Wednesday. I hope I see you!

Next post I’m going to put up a picture of our daughter-in-law, Trish’s Birthday Party!

Where do I start?

Last week was filled with excitement, expectation, anticipation,  challenge and reward.

Sal put in for early retirement a month ago and a week ago on  Monday was formally informed his request was accepted and that Friday, April 23rd could be his last day. The rest of his week was filled with planning, studying, questioning, deciding, discussing. So was mine! For you see, I was planning a surprise party for this past weekend.

Did I tell you that Thursday was his birthday? Yes. Thursday was his birthday and Friday he retired! Did you key in on the word “surprise”? Me and a group of co-conspirators needed to contact and co-ordinate a covert operation to arrange a party for this past Sunday, without Sal finding out. A special thanks to our dear friend Don, for making most of the work contacts.

Somehow we made it to his actual birthday without much suspicion. I told him that our four children and their families wanted to get together for cake and ice-cream Saturday afternoon.

Sal was in his home office Saturday, an hour or so before anyone was supposed to arrive.  I went in, pulled the blinds closed, shut the doors and told him that his children and grandchildren had a really special surprise for him and that he could not peek. I then left Sal and Ralph behind closed doors.

Later, as family and friends were arriving and setting up the party, Sal could be heard shouting: “Help! I’m trapped in my office with an angry cat!” Ralph does not like to be confined. Anywhere! Even in a 12’x20′ office with his “master.” (I’m uncertain which is the master)

Well, we did it. Eventually, I opened the door and asked him to come upstairs. He did. He had no idea what was going on. He had thought his children were “building something.” (Last Mother’s Day they build a foot bridge for me to put across a small stream on our property)

The people kept coming and Sal kept being surprised all afternoon, at the personal and work friends from over the years, and new friends, and neighbors, etc. kept arriving.

It was an incredible day! Happy Birthday! Happy Retirement!
…Happy rest-of-our-life! (More to come-including pictures)
