On Sunday December 1st, 2013, RoseMarie and Joe Cira, hosted a wine and cheese event bringing together friends from their school and professional lives, and from St Basil’s Church. I have been surprised (and delighted!) by friends’ who want to celebrate the publication of Autumn’s Grace. I think it is because writing is a solitary process. When work finally becomes public, often after years of work, a writer most likely has her head down tapping away at the next project. Thank you to my friends who have given me the opportunity to pause and celebrate. You put the smile on my face!
