The book without a title

blanI’m a bit distracted because I’m watching the last episode of “The Sopranos”.  If I hear the “F” word one more time or see anyone else’s finger cut off  with a meat cleaver,  I must discontinue television.

  1. Congratulations! Well deserved! Will this be your first book? What a great honor!

  2. Emily—I taught Joe Lee a “few years” ago and found him to be a charming young man. He even came out to the house to visit with me. I feel sure that the two of you will be quite successful in working together.
