Roz Dells tossed a foreclosure notice in the trash. Ridiculous! She had made her payments and could not be bothered by spam. The library’s Seed Exchange Program was about to launch, and she was in charge.

But when she receives another letter demanding that she shut down the Seed Exchange Program, she wonders – is this spam or something more sinister? Dance Upon a Field is a story about friendships and the power of community to band together.


Available on Amazon

Hope for a New Age

Real People Real Stories

First Grade 1933 Council Bluffs Iowa Ben Franklin Elementary School
Council Bluffs Iowa

These children attended first grade in 1933 during the Great Depression.  Even though money, food and jobs were scarce, they still obtained an eduction.  When they graduated from high school, the Depression lifted as the United States entered World War II. Then came rationing to support the war.  After the war, they created the American middle-class: home ownership rose, poverty declined.   Later in life, these children would be known as the Greatest Generation: resourceful, humble, hearty.  Not only did they survive enormous challenges of economic disparity and war, they created a prosperous society.  These first graders were our greatest hope for a new age.  And they still are.

So, if any one has information or knows the story of a child in this photo, please share the story.

The spelling-phobic novelist

imageThat is me, but no sympathies, please. You see, as a spelling-phobic writer, I feel blissful every time I spell a word correctly. It’s like finding the perfect flower for your garden.

Remember when you learned phonics in second grade? A,e,i,o, and u? You learned how to sound-out words. You could hear the difference between per and pre. Not so for me!

However, I discovered Google’s wonderful little speaker that sounds out words I misspell, and it has helped tremendously. So now, on the eve of my sixtieth year, I am finally learning to write!

P.S. Ditch the spellcheck. Then you’ll learn to spell.
