Another nice review of “Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses” has been posted on amazon (both US and UK sites.) Many thanks to Arpad B. When you go to the site, be sure to scroll down and select newest review first.
I received this book free in exchange for a review. I really enjoyed it and am happy to recommend it. I felt drawn into the story straight away. The author quickly and effectively builds the world of Dara and her family. You warm immediately to the characters and their story and I found this book difficult to put down as I wanted to know what happened next. It’s very skillful writing as the author depicts the images and colours of the world, the hopes and fears of the characters and moves the story along.at a good pace. Although it’s based on the story of Job you don’t need to know anything about this to enjoy the story.
Also, I’m happy to report that we had a nice group at yesterday’s party for the anthology “Where Rivers Converge” by the Carver County Writers Group. The readings were fun, interesting, and often moving. The atmosphere at the Sower Gallery at Shepherd of the Hill Presbyterian Church in Chaska, MN, was lovely, even fascinating, with it’s great display of local art.
If you live in the area, please come celebrate the release of Where Rivers Converge on Sunday, September 18, from 4-6 p.m. in the Sower Gallery, located in Shepherd of the Hill Presbyterian Church at the southeast corner of Engler Boulevard and Highway 41 in Chaska.
Meet and hear the work of some of the 23 local area contributors to the anthology.
Enjoy free snacks and refreshments.
Look inside this book plus other published works by our authors.
Take advantage of a discounted price on the book.
Tour the most recent art show, “Clearly Minnesota” newly mounted at the Sower gallery.
If you live in the area, I think you’d enjoy hearing local authors reading their contributions to the newly published anthology Where Rivers Converge

Authors will also probably have some of their other books on display as well.
I’ll be reading my fiction piece, “Alone in the North Carolina Woods – 1840” as well as my short, basically true, account of my last moments with my childhood friend Hallie. I call it “Just in Time to Say Goodbye.”
Time out from working on “My Father’s House” to post this link. KJ will be crossing the pond soon for more study. I hope you’ll find it interesting in general, but especially go on down the alphabet until you get to “Neun.” That’s where you’ll find her.
Please wish her well. And yes, she will have her computer and her editing skills with her.
