SOBO SLEUTH gets great reviews from South Bostonians

I returned to South Boston to attend the Parsons-Bruce Art Association progressive dinner. We enjoyed wonderful company and fabulous food from The Molasses Grill restaurant. We had perfect weather as we walked to magnificent historic homes on Mountain RD. I had the pleasure of selling and signing many copies of SOBO SLEUTH. I really enjoyed the positive comments from people who recently gave copies of the book to young readers in their families. Children and adults love the book.

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a terrific show at The Prizery Theatre in South Boston. Suds was thoroughly entertaining. The Halifax County Little Theatre put on a wonderful show. Many of us enjoyed dessert at The Bistro after the show. It was fun to talk to the performers after the show.

Next, on the list for SOBO SLEUTH is for us to come back on Third Thursday event in June or July. Main Street merchants begin a celebration every third thursday with live music and special events on Main Street. Joel and I will be featured at Parsons-Bruce at one of these evenings. It should be a lot of fun. This town is an amazing place. The people are so friendly. Spring is beautiful here.

SOBO SLEUTH on sale in Potomac,MD.

SOBO SLEUTH is now on sale in Potomac, MD. Linda Recht, the Media Center Specialist, at my preschool read our book and loved it! She is avidly supporting our book. Book sales are now going well here. We are excited that our community is stepping up to help the children of South Boston.

I am looking forward to attending a Progressive Dinner in South Boston in support of The Parsons-Bruce Art Association. It will be fun to meet more people associated with this terrific cause. I am thrilled that we will also get a chance to showcase SOBO SLEUTH.

Back from our visit to South Boston!

We had a wonderful visit to South Boston. Evan enjoyed paintball in N.C. and Joel got some archery time in! We all enjoyed sitting on the front porch reading and star gazing at night. The weather was spectacular. Many trees are now in bloom and the gardeners are ready to get to work!

Joel and I had the opportunity to meet with Wendy Fuller. She is writing an article about our book SOBO SLEUTH for a local paper. We are happy to report that book sales are off to a great start. We signed many books destined for Easter baskets. The books are on sale at the Parsons-Bruce Gallery and Three Women and No Truck, both of which are located right on Main Street.

I enjoyed a terrific dinner with Tim at Molasses Grill in Halifax. Karen Schopen, from Molasses Grill, sold copies of SOBO SLEUTH at her restaurant this weekend. Thank you Karen for your support! I am looking forward to coming back to South Boston later this month!
