Thank you, Zencherry and Tina Fariss Barbour of Bringing Along OCD, for nominating me for blog awards. I will acknowledge you more appropriately next week when I am back from my Peoria/NYC trip — but I wanted to offer a hearty Namaste! and thanks for your continued support.
This morning I head off to a day of Book Expo America, where I will hang out with my editor, Jill Bailin, and browse the exhibits. The Foreign Language of Friends is being exhibited in two different places: the New Title Showcase and the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. I am feeling a bit starstruck, being in the Big Apple and having my little book on display. At heart, I’m still that working-class girl from a small Midwestern town, and I never cease to be surprised at life’s twists and turns. You just never know, eh? Pinch me!
Anyway, enough about that. Today’s the day I recommend a blog! I’m dusting off one of my personal favorites, Dating Dementia by Nancy Wurtzel. Nancy writes about a variety of topics, from the very funny to the heartbreaking. I never know exactly what I’m going to get from her, but it’s always interesting. Divorced with a college-age daughter, Nancy relocated from Los Angeles to rural Minnesota, where she grew up, to care for her mother, who has dementia. Take a look!
