  1. I wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed reading your 1st two books, Good Intentions and Hold Her Down. Through Barnes and Noble I have ordered your next 4 and am eagerly awaiting the package. Even though my college years and hectic child rearing 30's are pretty far behind me, I remember those feelings of angst and excitement over the little victories of those day to day trials in your characters. I had to post anon, as I have no URL or any other account My name is Carla and I may have met you at a Christmas/Craft fair at St Mary's Waterford. You are an amazing writer, please keep it up.
