After a pause in writing due to circumstances beyond my control and the death of my mother, I am back to writing my next book with a working title of …
Nico & Vanna, an American Clan.
A fiction novel based on my parent’s stories will be approximately 90,000 words for about 360 manuscript pages.
The idea originated with a photo taken at my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary—a photo of an American Clan.
Both of my parents have a history of hardship and strife. My father is a WWII survivor from Croatia. My mother, from Pennsylvania, grew up with an alcoholic father. How the two met, married and created a clan full of personalities with a joy de vive in Colorado is an amazing tale.
Stay tuned for more of this writing adventure with tidbits and photos along the way.
