Special thanks today goes to Ms. Diane Holwick, the assistant Director of the Fort Smith library for hosting me as the guest author at the “Author’s In the Evening” event on Tuesday, April 19, 2016. Not only is Ms. Holwick a graceful lady, but she was so helpful in organizing a successful event. This was my 2nd book signing since October 5th, 2015.
My next round of appreciation goes to Mrs Linda Criswell-Chaffin, my literary agent and family. Linda hails several degrees and wears many hats. Linda has extensive talents and more than she wants all to know, but I am sharing it anyway!! Thanks to Larry Chaffin for all the delicious treats! My other best bud Beverly Hiriams -Henderson was unable to come. She did attend Okmulgee, Oklahoma in October! Thank you’s to the sweet Dorothy Love who remains my childhood friend, and my cheerleader sisters Pamela Stratford and Tina Marable-Norwood. Thanks to countless others who keep it authentic!
