In keeping with tradition, I am once again donating ALL PROFITS from the sale of my books to various causes. This year's "menu" includes two local causes and five national. They are: The Hawley Fire Dept. and Hawley Library as well as the National Eating Disorder Association, American Diabetes Association, Autism Society of America, our National M.S. Society, and Penn State's THON vs. Children's Cancer. When you make a donation, YOU pick the cause!
I will be located in front (or inside) of Hawley's historic Trading Post on Main Avenue from 9 a.m. 'til 4 p.m., but visitors will have the chance to meet other artists and crafters along the avenue as well as the chance to step inside the open doors of our many small businesses!
"Last Saturday" dates: 5/29, 6/26, 7/31, 8/28, & 9/25
Extended to a full week this year (Sept. 24th through October 3rd), the Hoedown always enhances autumn days with activities, entertainment, and vendors galore! Hope to see you as I sit inside or outside of Hawley's Trading Post on Main Avenue Saturday October 2nd!
For the readers on your list, snag some books a few weeks before Christmas!

In a nutshell, I enjoy "giving back." People have been good to me throughout my life, and I guess I have bought into the "Pay if forward" mentality. I wish I could be financially supportive of more groups, but I can't. Perhaps one day I will be able to do so. Until then, I thank the many people who supported my efforts by purchasing my books. They, too, should feel good for having been part of this.
I offer a unique opportunity for book clubs to help as well. Please check my "Book Club" section here on my website.
