Welcome and Happy 2016!
Thank you for checking in and I hope you had a
great year improved by many good reads. It was
an extremely full one on this side of things. My
increasingly fragile parents decided to sell
their farm and succeeded faster than you can
type Deed of Trust. In fact, there were no
senior apartments for them to move into, so two
of my brothers and I moved them in with me for
the summer. By October an apartment came
available in the next town, and we moved them
in. The multiple moves weren’t easy for Mom, who
is dealing with dementia, but she and Dad do
enjoy their independence. At least they are only
minutes away now, and that’s so important in
emergencies, or if cabin fever strikes. What’s
more my three rescued dogs love the company.
Myers, in my opinion, is one of the great
romance writers of our time..."

I’m happy to say that the writing
has been going well and the first book under the
pseudonym, Helen Foster Reed should be available by
March in both e-book form and trade paperback via most
of your favorite book sources. As I mentioned last year,
this is a collaboration with M. Gail Reed, and M. June
Foster, and links will soon be on this site to the new
website, as well as information as to purchasing A
FLOCK OF SPARROWS, our first mainstream novel.
A FLOCK OF SPARROWS is about five widows, a
winter storm of the century, and non-stop secrets,
comedy, and drama. Naturally, since we’re all East
Texans by birth, or heart, the story takes place pretty
much in our backyards. Gail, June, and I are also
widows, which is part of the reason we were drawn to
write this kind of story. There’s no denying that it was
both a painful and cathartic work; however, our intent
was also to help and give hope to others who have to
take this challenging journey.

and appearances. We’ll also be on
And, yes, our next project is well under way for a 2017
Have a safe and blessed year!
