Tom reading with Mark Twain

My book about my parents, While They're Still Here, will be published in November. I'm so excited, and more than a little nervous. My parents loved books.  After Dad lost his eyesight, the VA connected us with the Washington Talking Book & Braille LibraryIt changed his life. He listened to several books a week - Perry mason, Hardy Boys, Tom Sawyer, and Westerns by Zane Grey.

My mom read any mystery she could get her hands on, and espectally loved the Cat Who series.  I wonder what they'd think of my book about their own lives.  - Trish
