Do No Harm

I believe part of the Hippocratic oath is to do no harm. I also believe that's a good motto for an author to follow when writing.


Without giving anything away, I'll just say my new release, A PERFECT ANGEL, which is the sequel to HER HANDYMAN, rights a necessary wrong done to a character in the first book. 

Although each book is independent of the other and can be read separately, for best enjoyment, I recommend reading HER HANDYMAN first, and then A PERFECT ANGEL.

After you've read them both, you'll see what I mean about Do No Harm.

A Perfect Angel Just Got Released!

Last evening, I took the plunge and finally released A Perfect Angel, the second of the two part, Perfect Match series. The first in the series was Her Handyman. I have some ideas about extending the series, but am not sure yet if that will happen. I have a number of other books to complete first!

If you haven't yet read Her Handyman, I hate to give too much away. I can say I felt sorry for one of the characters in the first book. She was a nice person. I wanted her to get a happy ending, because she deserved it!

A Perfect Angel Is On the Way I Promise!

Events seem to conspire delaying the publication of A Perfect Angel, my sequel to the romantic comedy, Her Handyman. I discovered a flaw which necessitated a rewrite, but am convinced the book is all for the better now.

I hope to have it ready and out by June sometime. When it is, everyone will know!

St. Joseph's Day and the St. Joseph's Day Table - a Repeat Blog from March 19, 2009




Because I've made some new friends since this was last posted, and also since some of the friends I did know before have a short memory, here's my post about a St. Joseph's Day Table from 2009. Unfortunately, we haven't had any St. Joseph's Day Tables around here recently. The comments still remain here from that post, but you're still welcome to add another.

Okay, here goes:

You'd have to live in a cave not to be aware of March 17, St. Patrick's Day, a day for wearing of the green, when even people who aren't Irish pretend to be.

In passing, I just happened to mention to a few people about St. Joseph's Day, an Italian feast day, celebrated on March 19, a day for wearing of the red. They'd never heard of it before. Also, they'd never heard of a St. Joseph's Day Table.

If you belong to the category of people who have never heard of or participated in a St. Joseph's Day Table, you've missed out on a wonderful event.

The St. Joseph's Day Table is said to have originated in the Middle Ages when a drought struck Sicily and families prayed to God and also to St. Joseph. To stay alive, many of them resorted to eating fava beans. When their prayers were answered and the rains came, the Italians named March 19 as a special feast day dedicated to St. Joseph. They set up a grand table of food to share and celebrate. Since it was Lent, the food was meatless, but plentiful. Flowers and other decorations added to the festivities.

From such roots the present St. Joseph's Day Table was born, traditionally celebrated sometime near March 19, consisting of a massive buffet of meatless dishes, usually with more than one variety of pasta, along with salads, breads, plus almost any kind of pastry you can think of, with lots of flowers and other decorations.

The St. Joseph's Day Table not only provides a grand feast, but also lucky fava beans, a talisman purported to prevent pantries from going bare.

I've posted a few photos of the St. Joseph's Day Table held one Sunday at our church hall.

I'd be interested to know if anyone else has heard of St. Joseph's Day or a St. Joseph's Day Table. Also, have you been to one? Please share.

A Perfect Angel

I've been working on a sequel to Her Handyman, my romantic comedy. This one's called A Perfect Angel, and follows what happens to one of the main characters in Her Handyman.

You'll be able to read A Perfect Angel by itself, but the experience will be better if you read Her Handyman first.

Otherwise, you'll know what happens in the first book before you get a chance to read it.

Stay tuned for more, as it develops.

And, when A Perfect Angel is closer to being done, I'll do a cover reveal!
