Mystery Solved

A cyber-Moonpie to Sue from Oregon, Joan from Georgia and Bonnie from Northern California for finding the mystery quote in Seven Sisters (page 200 in hardcover, page 199 in paperback). You all are the best! Thanks from Connie and me. Here’s the exact passage.

Oh, honeybun, Dove’s voice sang in my head. What does it matter where your old bones are when your soul is dancing with Jesus?

Right now, it’s raining in Southern California (miracle!) and I’m watching The View. A lot of people don’t like that show because the ladies all talk at the same time. That’s exactly what I like about it because it reminds me of when I get together with my three sisters or my friends. I usually watch the first half hour then I get back to work. State Fair (my next Benni book) is set in summer when it’s 100 degrees in Paso Robles. Kind of hard for me to imagine right now! Maybe I’ll make some hot chocolate to get back in the mood…

Challenge for Diehard Fans

I need your help! I received an email from a fan of mine whose best friend just died. A quotation by Dove has been running through her brain and she has searched and searched, but cannot find it. So she wrote me. But, I’ll be honest with you all, I don’t remember my work that well (my brain is usually focused on the book I’m currently writing as well as the one I’m promoting). So, I figured (well, I know) that some of you remember my work better than I do. Or some of you might have recently read the book where the quotation is written. Connie thinks it might be in Seven Sisters, but she looked through it page by page and could find it. The quotation has the words “dancing with Jesus” in it. You know, I do remember writing it…but I just don’t know where it is! Thanks, Earlene p.s. If you know it, please send it to my email address on my website.
