A Glimpse Of My New Book!

Hello everyone!

Tonight is my Christian writer’s group and I have a short story to submit. It’s about my friend Terry, a man who couldn’t speak, spell, or move, yet we would have a ball playing Hangman. The only thing he could move were his eyes, so that was how he communicated. When he looked up it meant “Yes”, looking down meant “No”. The only thing is, I have to change his name because his family would never give me permission to use it in a book. (He still has a son living, with the same name.) So I looked up Irish male names and came up with Barry O’ Darby. I Googled it and there’s no such name. O’ Darby isn’t even a real last name! (I checked to make sure).
This story will be a chapter in my new book, titled by Terry himself,  “Knock, Knock. I’m Here”. We had hoped to write this, his story, together, but he passed away before we even got a good start. Because I can’t use real names or places, it will be a fiction based on a true story. All my memories of our friendship will be my inspiration.

This was taken the 1 year I was a blond. It's of me w/ my quadriplegic friend, Terry

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks!

My encouraging word for today is from Proverbs 17:22, “A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
