Meet the Author

I began as a journalist, or at least that's what I got my degree in. After college, I worked for a newspaper, then as a magazine editor and feature writer. These days I earn my living as a freelance editor for a national nonprofit organization. I've written three award-winning books of history and biography. I'm a member of The Authors Guild. My newest work is a fantasy, WATERSPELL, an intricate, multi-layered trilogy about a girl and the wizard who suspects her of being so dangerous to his world, he believes he'll eventually have to kill her ... which poses a problem for him, since he's fallen in love with her. My married name, and a name I've sometimes been published under, is Deborah Lightfoot Sizemore.

This short, highly readable essay should speak to anyone who has dealt with the death of a loved one. What do we do with their personal effects? How do we find room for their things in our own crowded lives? It can be difficult disposing of items that have sentimental value but which may not fit easily into "life ongoing." PS: Someone mentioned an interest in the author's fantasy novels, saying they weren't yet available as NOOK books. They are now. I own both, and am looking forward to Book 3 of the trilogy. Well worth downloading.

At 29 pages, this short little read is well-written. Author has a very smooth writing style. Would have liked to check out her fiction novels, but not available for nook at this time. Memories relevant to those growing up in the 1960's and70's.

I enjoyed reading this. It is more-or-less the classic "where I have been and where am I going" reading material. The author is pondering her circle of life.

Light read. Author rambles on about clutter and knick knacks she has picked up along the journey of her life.
