  1. I love all the green and I love that everyone is in the mood to celebrate after a cold winter. And, most important, I am proud to be a yinzer!

    • Thanks for your blog visits and good words Naomi. Your book came in the mail and I hope to make time yo read it soon.

      • Dear Ruth,
        Thanks so much for your support! Apples From Heaven is a quick read, with many of those stories ones that I tell to a live audience. The language and style is different from my novel. I hope you will hear the storyteller’s voice as you read. Happy tales!
