Welcome to The Boys of Summer 
Release Day Celebration!

The day has finally arrived! Ten years after it started, the first book of the Dust & Ash Saga is now available for download and purchase at Amazon and Smashwords. I can't tell you how exciting the entire process has been for me. It's an incredible feeling to hold a book in your hand after pursuing its publication for so many years. I'm very grateful to everybody who helped make this dream a reality.

  1. My favorite music at a reception? Hmmm that's a hard one since I haven't attended a wedding in years! I've always liked music that gets people out of their seats and on the floor..The Electric Slide, Cha Cha Slide or even the infamous YMCA were always good for that. And the trend now for choreographed dances by the couple or the groom and mom, bride and dad, bridal party...are usually pretty amazing to watch...Wish I had their talent/skill! Music from my reception included Always and Forever, Best of My Love, What a Wonderful World. If I was planning a reception now...I would need days to choose from the multitude of tunes!

  2. When I got married, the DJ asked if there were any songs we didn’t want played. The Chicken Dance and the Electric Slide went on the banned list.

    I don’t regret it. ������
