No! I can assure you…

she absolutely does not want me to write this blog or be the focus of any attention whatsoever!  So, please don’t tell her. I’d rather take the heat after she sees it than give me “therapy” for a few days or more beforehand.  Content to remain behind the scenes, she is an expert at critiquing my writing, and does so frequently!  My favorite comment from her “writing therapy” is the following line. 

“Jerry, did you pay any attention, whatsoever, during English class in college? You use improper tenses, and only get away with numerous misspelled words thanks to the spell check feature on your computer. You can come up with words, even spell check doesn’t know.  What grade did you get in English?” 

“I got a C and that was a gift from the teacher. Laura, I didn’t enjoy English. I enjoyed engineering classes, design classes, and the classes for my Engineering diploma. English and world history were required subjects thrown in to torment engineering students.

 Besides, I knew I didn’t need to pay much attention, since I planned to marry someone who did pay attention in English. You did!”

She just smiles and walks away. 

We have finished book 2, Angels on the Battlefield (naming one of the books was the only thing she asked for).  I expect Angels, with its 30 stories, to publish in the fall of ’21.
