It was such a thrill for me to receive notice of being a finalist in the Indie Excellence Book Awards. After several years of feverishly writing novels and children’s books, I had been encouraged to enter a few contests. Whether I’m winning or I’m just in the running, it was wonderful for my book, Restitution, to be acknowledged on an international scope. You have more of a reason now to pick it up and read it and understand why its finale was the perfect scenario as a sequel to Keeping Secrets. Does it sit you on the edge? Absolutely. It was also not easy for me to be in the mind of a sociopath day after day. Thanks heavens for my being able to write children’s books on social skills and be on the positive side of life.
