This photo of my mother, Betty (right, dark swimsuit) and her friend, was the inspiration for my character Adele Pruitt Montgomery in Face Front. Every time I see this pic, it makes me smile. I hope it has the same affect on you.
I want to thank all the people who have supported me by purchasing my books. This Christmas season we were able to use some of the proceeds to sponsor a child in need.
The card he filled out and hung on the tree said he was 10 years old, in need of school uniforms and shoes (I'll bet his mom prompted that entry), and he wanted a basketball and a stocking.
What? He only asked for a basketball and a stocking?!!! No video games? No high dollar Lego sets? No bike? Wow! This kid really touched my heart.
I had a blast shopping for him. He got his school uniform pieces, and basketball shoes. Of course, the basketball he requested. But, I really had fun filling his stocking! I put everything I could think of in it, Legos, games, candy, knowing he would be so surprised when he opened it because it was so much more than he asked for!
The greatest Christmas gift is when you're able to spoil someone who is so deserving.
Had a great time at Ronald McDonald House in Greenville, SC today! Team readmilliemoore made dinner for the house of twenty – serving up ten plump rotisserie chickens, twenty pounds of garlic mashed potatoes, a full salad bar, a variety of cookies and lots of fellowship! Thank you, to my readers and fans, for making this day possible.

What a fabulous day this turned out to be! San Lorenzo is the town I grew up in, so it has a special place in my heart. I got to meet some of the locals and hear about familiar SLZ events. One local even called me a rebel... SLZ Rebel that is.
My parents, my son and daughter-in-law, all three of my sisters, my brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, best friends and family I haven't seen in more than fifteen years showed up.
We sold some books, shared some laughs and absolutely enjoyed every minute of it.
Thank you to the San Lorenzo Library, Lael, Randy and Michele, and everyone else who helped make it a success!
