I have some good/bad news.

The good news is that Heart of the Amazon is a finalists in the National Reader’s Choice Contest.

The bad news is that my doctor told me today I have whooping cough. Talk about being surprise because I thought it was a children’s illness. But more and more adults are getting it because the vaccines we took as children have worn off. At least it explains this dry wracking cough I’ve got. I thought it was all connected to my long running sinus problems. Even more bad news it can last for months sometimes.



  1. This book sounds like one a lot of people should read. The impact of people’s words can last a lifetime! Whether they are good, bad or otherwise. Thanks,Cindi

  2. I am so sorry you are still sick. I hope you feel better sooner versus later. 🙂
    Please enter me. There have many times I have lived to regret some of the things that fly out of my mouth.
    P.S. I loved Heart of the Amazon

  3. Hope you’re feeling better soon Margaret.

    Please enter me for a chance to win Simple Little Words ~ it sounds like an inspirational read.

  4. Margaret! Whooping cough? For goodness sake and here we thought it was erradicated from planet earth. I’m so sorry. Take care and don’t whoop it up too much.

    Oh, and The Heart of the Amazon–an NRCA finalist–that is so awesome!!

  5. Oh forgot to tell you and the rest of the world–I just finished “VANISHED”, (a miracle because I have so little time to read.) Well, I couldn’t put it down. Good, good job.
