BOTNS Retreat Author Reading Challenge

I’m going to the Books on the Nightstand Author Retreat in April. I can’t wait! In order to get ready for the event, I’m joining the BOTNS Retreat Author Reading Challenge.

The goal: read one book from each of the authors that will be attending the retreat by the end of 2011.

  1. consider Euclid Ave Our scars mean something. it is the 1st in a series of 3 true life novels that depicts a child’s life as they grow into adulthood. it begins with the discovery, at age 4 of his little brother’s lifeless body floating face down in the bathtub. the subsequent childhood years are filled with parental neglect, deceit, theft and manipulation. full time employment begins at age 12. the teenage years are characterized by experimentation to habits to addictions that culminate in a wager that results in a loveless marriage that ends in divorce and nearly in death. late in 2010, the chapter entitled Water became the focus of a cold case homicide investigation. 2011 is the 50th anniversary of the event.

  2. Can’t wait to meet you!
