I hope you're all well so far in 2022 and keeping warm in the northern states. I grew up in northern Minnesota but must admit I don't miss the frigid winters. We moved to Orlando and continue to enjoy moderate weather and tropical landscapes.
I'd like to tell you that Back of the Yard is free today on Kindle, so if you haven't read it, here's your chance. Many of you can remember stories from relatives about the Depression years, from Hoover stew to fireside chats listening to FDR.
Please take care of yourselves during our ongoing pandemic challenges. I send warm wishes from Florida to wherever you may be.
“I grew up in Chicago, so all the landmark and neighborhoods in this book are all very familiar to me.
Chicagoans are a very special breed of people, and I enjoyed the characters portrayed in this story.” —Amazon reader
