Amazing Meals

So, last Wednesday I told you about spacatelli and Cin Cin.

Today I’d like to note the joys of Il Delfino’s fish supper—12 fish courses and then dessert–a wonderful sardine appetizer, I don’t even know what to call it, and a super plate of octopus salad and of course spaghetti alle vongole–wonderful little clams–

Letters from Korea

Book is coming out in July! If you have a YA reader who would like to learn more about life in the early fifties in US and some info about the war, check out this book–also a romance–Does Sal love Gina as a little sister or romantically? Is the girl he meets in Korea a rival to Gina?


Sharing some success

Excitement–I’m a runner up in Thynks competition for poems on angels–British publication. One first prize winner and then a list of runners up–I’m about six down in a longish list so, not so bad!
