Dear Reader Letter – July 2015


What makes a “Girls Only” dinner party different from one that includes men? It may not be what you’d expect. For example, the guest list for my next party includes a rocket scientist, a former journalist, a psychotherapist, and a New York Times bestselling author. We’ve come a long way baby!

But it’s not just the varying careers that create interesting conversation. Now that women have the freedom to choose a career in any field that piques their interest, it doesn’t seem to have eclipsed their interest in relationships. Conversations continue to run the gamut from world affairs to romance to adventures with the grandchildren.


I’ve been hosting dinner parties for years and frequently get comments on my Facebook page from fans who “wish they were there.” So I’ve decided to extend an invitation to one lucky winner of my July website / Facebook contest. The winner will receive one round-trip airline ticket from anywhere in the continental United States to Denver, Colorado, 2 nights at the Marriott Courtyard, and a “Girls Only” dinner invitation for the weekend of August 7-9 (Friday – Sunday). If you’re working on a novel, even better! Bring the first three chapters and I’ll review it with you. To enter go to my website’s contest link.
