Recent Book Signing
Last Saturday at a booksigning, some good friends showed up. Kimberly Jensen and her daughter Erica, and I go way back. Kimberly and I used to be in book group together when we lived in California--over eight years ago. Then we both ended up moving to Utah about the same time.
We kept in touch for the first few years after moving to Utah, then it faded to Christmas cards. So I was really excited to see them. When you run into an old friend, it seems that no time has passed at all, and you pick up right where you left off.
They had read all of my books, and each wanted their own collection signed.
Kimberly was curious about when I started writing. In California, I had no inclinations and I told her that it didn't start until after coming back to Utah. It took that empty office to entice me I suppose. When my husband changed jobs, and left a full-service office in the basement, the hidden dream finally blossomed.
