will be published in Indiana Voice–but that is not part of my personal Hat Trick for this summer. This summer, three BOOKS of mine have or will come out–in both real paper form (or hardback!) and in e-form. (two)

The last of my Legacy of Honor series, tracking the generations of an Italian American family serving our country in four wars, Secrets of the Heart is out.

Simply a Smile, a collection of my short stories (many award winners) is now available as well!

Both of these are on AMAZON.COM

cut and paste the above link to find them.

In August, the last of my three summer loves, will be out

WHOOSH! available now for pre-order from TheaQ.com, is a picture book that shows the joys of a close father daughter bond, displayed on a father daughter sledding day in heavy snow.

This publisher was very receptive to my idea–for years I was approaching publishers who wanted trendy, quirky with this tale and was rebuffed. Finally, TheaQ in Minnesota understood my vision and liked the book! They chose a very talented illustrator and I can;t wait to see the hard cover version of the book!
