Letty’s Story ~ a true and factual story of grief and love

This is Leticia—bloodied by war, unwanted by her mother and father, a poor child of circumstance. At the age of five, she was traded in the black market with the Japanese army to survive. Letty’s story explodes as suddenly as the bombs that hit Pearl Harbor. Later abused by her own husband and forced to run for her life with only 5$ in her pocket, she stepped on US soil and was able to achieve what every woman dreams of!

Letty’s Story tells of a deep love and faith that rises above all else; it is packed with drama, but most remarkably, it is true and factual. You will cry for Leticia and feel the exhilaration…

2015-01-27 09.13.43 It snowed last night, just a little, but will probably be gone within hours. No, this is not a black and white picture although it seems to contain little more than shades of gray.

What I’ve Learned from other writers- Perseverance

Romance Author Kate McKeever

Writing isn’t what I imagined it was when I first started. No, I didn’t expect it to be all bon bons and dictating to a secretary or getting rich on my first book, but I didn’t expect the changes that occur with the publishing business. Over the past twenty years or so that I’ve been writing, the ebook business has emerged and bloomed, self publishing has evolved from a “vanity” business to a thriving avenue for writers, another choice to make. And the “big” publishing houses are no longer the only businesses in town.

I’ll not go into my personal travails that I’ve gone through in my writing career, just suffice it to say, I’ve been around when two of my publishing houses closed down or were bought out. The thing is, my story isn’t that unusual. Other authors, some very well known names, have “closed down” houses, have had…
