Reading tonight at The Elevens!

Since we’re in the middle of the Blizzard of ’78 (albeit stretched out over 6 weeks instead of that ‘three days, three nights’ thing) how appropriate that I’ll be reading from my novel Puff tonite as the guest author for Writers Night Out at The Elevens in Northampton starting at 7.  All writers & people who read writers are welcome.

Ending Domestic Violence

Most of us know a victim of domestic violence, and how one can feel trapped, financially & emotionally, with no way out, & the abuse goes on & on. A past reaction may be to pay a visit to said abuser with a baseball bat—-but there IS a better way. Safe Passage gives people hope. That’s why a BIG bunch of us will be in Hamp Sunday for the Hot Chocolate Run. Please support me. If everybody kicks in five or ten bucks, I’ll hit my fundraising goal of $200, which will go a long way to providing a ray of sunlight to a lot of unhappy folks.
