I’m a voracious reader. Always have been; I’ve been reading whatever I could get my hands on for as long as I can remember. (I can actually distinctly remember the moment I realized that the symbols on the page were words.)  I’m a confirmed bibliophile, and have, at last count, nineteen bookcases at home.

Ironic that I’m the librarian at a virtual library.

I digress. As many voracious readers do, I imagine, I’ve often thought to myself that I could certainly write one of these things. I mean, I’ve read enough of them. How hard could it be?


I have not written the great American novel. I haven’t written at all.  However, DBF has actually done so. She has written a terrific novel about friendship, and life in a small community, and how a woman can make a life for herself. And there’s a goat.

It really is a wonderful read, and it’s now available for pre-order on Amazon and will be soon at Barnes & Noble.  Trust me.  You’re gonna love it.  In the meantime, visit her blog.  You’ll find some terrific writing there, too.

  1. Ah, so many people say they want to write a novel, so few do it. I haven’t come close myself yet, but I still hold out hope. Thanks for sharing this. Looks interesting!

  2. Thank you, my friend. Pre-sales are very important signals to retailers that they should order a particular book, so your help is deeply appreciated. Love, Jan
