Adoptee Memoir In Progress

Updated: Feb 4

I'm thrilled to update you on my writing progress!


My revisions are near completion and I'll be sending my manuscript to the publisher by the end of October. I'll send PDFs to my first readers in the next couple of weeks.


I Must Have Wandered: An Adopted Air Force Daughter Recalls


This image is my preliminary -- the official cover will be ready in the near future!


The book, a collage of lyrical prose, vignettes, letters, and snippets, is about my adoption, and how I came of age in the 50s and 60s, the daughter of a military man.


Here are a few excerpts in pictures.

Have a wonderful autumn!


p.s. I'm no longer in Sarasota, FL - My husband, Phil, and I have settled in Lewes, DE with our rescued old boy Chihuahua, Maxwell.
