My Daughter Has Felony Drug Convictions Now What?

I make myself sick. I really do. I am so not a writer. I am just walking around pretending to be a writer. I say I am going to write this book- HAVE BEEN SAYING IT- for 5 years now , and all Ive managed to do it amass a huge pile of letters, a query letter and a proposal. Oh and a few hundred magazine ans newspaper pieces.
I saw in my local paper that a very local man has written a book- some fantasy-Harry-Potter-Lord-of-the-rings type thing. Hes signing book at Hastings. Well, isnt that nice?
Then my very own husbands cousin is an award winning romance author. What have I done? newspaper mostly and a handful of glossy magazines. Whoop dee do!

I got a Christmas phone call from Judy Neelley. She said that as a present to herself she'd bought a phone card. She had spent the afternoon calling family and loved ones and had a few minuets left.We spoke for a bout 10 minuets. She told me about her job as the sound system operator for church services and programs. She said she'd gotten the last package Id sent and that they wen't allowed anymore to get the clothes so I didnt get to send her a sweatshirt or pants. We talked about my meeting her sister Dottie who isnt very far from me and how"down home" her family is.She thanked me for everything and promised to write.
