I have three octaves and can hold a note so long folks are flabbergasted.

What is your favorite Bible verse?
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mar
k 11:23, KJV

and promiscuous Mom. Life on the Cherokee Indian Reservation in Washington has become unbearable. Her carefully staged suicide attempt is thwarted and the supernatural appearance of an angel becomes the harbinger ushering in a new and glorious life, starting with moving onto the Circle K ranch. A moment of destiny causes the irresistibly debonair but cynical Valdez to become stranded at the ranch during a crippling blizzard. Sparks fly between them, but will her burning desire to become a Nashville recording artist thwart their blossoming romance? Can Ayita become the catalyst pointing the way to a spiritual awakening for him—despite his objections? Read this poignant story of love, forgiveness and challenging issues that must be resolved before Ayita can commit to “Love, Honor and Obey…”

Any parting comments?
I have dabbled in art since I was a child. I particularly like doing faces. My novel The Portrait is inspired from my visit to Palm Beach and the Riviera; along with my love for drawing and painting.

Thank you, Marlene, for visiting with my readers and me.
