A Letter from A (Male) Reader

MimosaTreePicnicI was so flattered last night by an email my husband received from his friend, Bob Cusack. An old college friend, Bob is the managing editor of The Hill, which makes his comments to me even more special, because he is a successful writer, editor, and a member of the Screen Actors Guild. His words to my husband last night were touching, and he has permitted me to share them with you today. Thanks, Bob. When I read something like this, it makes me happy that I decided to self-publish “Beneath the Mimosa Tree,” and it encourages me to persevere and finish writing “Baseball Girl.” Thank you for taking the time to read my novel.

I am on an Amtrak back heading back to DC from NYC.

Just finished Stephanie’s book. Really enjoyed it. Very moving. Great character development and the back and forth of the first person narrative is very unique.


I can see why it has been such a great success and an award winner.


Please tell her what she already knows — she has a clear talent.
