8/29/22, Ready for Fall!!!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you’re enjoying this very last week of summer before Labor Day and summer will be officially over!! I’m flying and travelling, and things have definitely calmed down compared to a month ago, when airports were jammed and it was utterly crazy trying to get anywhere. I think the kids going back to school has brought people home and calmed things down.

I have a mountain of work on my desk for the fall, and am ready to roll up my sleeves, get to work and hit the typewriter. It will be nice to settle down. I’ve been running into heat waves everywhere I travel, and am ready for cool fall weather somewhere!!! And now I’m ready to tackle all the projects I didn’t do this summer and have been saving for the fall, and now here we are.

It’s not a subject anyone wants to hear anymore, but Covid is still out there, among us, it was rampant among my employees this summer, some light cases and some bad ones, all among people who had been vaccinated and bolstered, so we can’t ignore it yet, and I still wear a mask when in crowds, and travelling, and I eat outdoors. Everyone has to find their own comfort level, and the right balance for them personally. I hope the day comes soon when it’s no longer an issue and a dim memory for all of us.

I hope the summer gave you a much needed rest, some fun, that you got beach time or mountain time, or just some peaceful time, so that you’re ready to face the fall with new energy, and excitement about some new projects. I hope it’s a fantastic fall for you, so bye bye Summer until next year…..and I hope the coming months will be great for you and for all of us!!!

love, Danielle

    Hi Danielle,

    I am not ready to relinquish summer yet. One of my favorite weeks in summer is always the Canfield Fair (held on and right before Labor Day). I’ve been going to this large county fair since I was a child.

    I have also begun to SUP (stand-up paddleboard) and I hope to be on the water (Rocky River and Lake Erie) until at least Oct. 15th.

    Hope you have a beautiful fall!

    Regards, Elaine

    My Grandmother just turned 100 years young last May. My gram has collected every book that you have written. She has been in your book club for as long as I can remember. My sister and I would love to purchase an autographed book, any book if possible. Gram has had a tough battle these last couple of years so we thought this surprise would help her as I know your books have given her reasons to keep pushing forward as she eagerly await your new releases.
    I tried to attach a picture of gram holding your book in front of her book shelf that is filled with all of your books.
    Thank you,
    Thomas Hug

    Hi Danielle- I hope it is a fabulous fall for you! xo There is a saying if this book/post/comment/meeting or photo could help one person. I happily agree. At present reading “His Bright Light & Winners in Australia. This book Winners is amazing! In 2019 I lost a man named Craig & this man & I visited Craig CO at about 4 times. Plus Denver. It is definately a calling. Winners has lifted my spirits. Thankyou & Bless you xo

    I read Beauchamp Hall this past weekend and I’m not saying this lightly, as I have read several of your other novels with similar themes, but this is my favorite DS novel to date and really stood out from the rest. Winnie , was very relatable . The circumstances of how she started over in England were realistic along with her moving up in ranks, which was just from hard work, being grateful and polite. It hard to articulate my thoughts . I will just say that this is the kind of novel and character, Winnie in particular that one thinks about long after the novel is put down.
