Re: Tiffany Girl
Love historical because I always learn something. I am from
Monahans near Odessa. I have added you to my TBR authors.
Congratulations on the awards.

Even though your book shows women starting to branch out on
their own, I really like the fact that back in those days,
men were more reserved, and showed women a bit more
restraint and respect. Now it seems that women are looked
at more as a notch for their bedposts, more than for their
brains, in many cases, which is sad, and to their
disadvantage. I'm so glad that you came here today, not
only to let us know about your latest book, which I'm
greatly anticipating reading, but to thank you for writing
about Historical fiction!! It's a good thing to keep our
past out there for our younger readers as well, so they can
be kept abreast of what earlier decades were like, and how
far we've come as a society. The cover to your latest book
is very striking, and I'm sure that your book is going to do
very well!! Congratulations!!
