Off the Beaten Path

The unique downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado bookstore ‘Off the Beaten Path’, has accepted my book/memoir. Some Things Are Simply Meant to Be is now on the shelf in Steamboat Springs, the Rocky Mountains we call our ‘Little Switzerland’, where we owned a condo at The West for over 40 years, our home away from home.

What a feeling! There is life after hair. . . . I live a dream I never had.
