My new book is out

Hello to all of you who have stuck with me through this looong dry spell. I am grateful you didn't dump me from the blogs you follow. THANKS! The reason I haven't been posting is I spent the last 18 months working on a book about Hurricane Rita. While everyone knows about Hurricane Katrina, few outside those who suffered through Rita know about her. I am proud of this project because it honors those everyday heroes who led us through this awful time. I interviewed more than 60 people, from first responders and elected officials to non-profits and faith-based organizations. This is their story. It is by far the most ambitious project I've taken on. You can find more about "Rita: Honoring Heroes of a Forgotten Storm" and read excerpts at


  1. An amazing feat. Congratulations on the book. Your friend on Long Ialand, Lori

  2. Thanks, Lori! One of these days, I'm going to visit Long Island and see your wonderful place in person. I've been so inspired and motivated by your posts.
