Here is my first book! My very first book!

It’s available at Amazon.com.

I am having a reading at the Edina Art Center, Saturday, March 18, 2017, 10:00 a.m. My book will be available for purchase ($14.95) at the event.

Given Away is a tribute to my Omma and Oppa, so you can know what remarkably resilient, courageous and loving people they are. I wrote this story as a way to express my love, gratitude and honor for all that my Omma sacrificed. She gave me life, not once, but twice. How fortunate I am to call her mother. My Oppa kept his promises he made to me. He made our reunion possible.
