“Better late than never” is a saying that I find myself leaning on this month as I try to get some new writing done and also keep up with regular life. In keeping with this theme, and before March slides on by, here’s something fun to celebrate the final days of Women’s History month.
Below is a list of descriptions for the title, role, or achievement of various women who are the subject of (or a character in) my published books. Name as many of these women as you can and send me an email with your answers and your mailing address by April 1st. The first person to send me correct answers, and two more persons chosen at random, will receive signed copy of their choice of any of my published titles. Good luck! (Hint: Visit the “Books” section of my website.)
1. Florida everglades conservationist, author of “A River of Grass.”
2. Author, essayist, co-pilot. Mother to “Little Charlie.”
3. Spanish Gypsy, smuggler, female lead of opera by the same name.
