WHAT IS BEING SAID ABOUT YOU AND THE ARTS:
CAROL CHANNING, Veteran of Broadway, Motion Pictures and Television: “The author/artist inspires those who are willing and able to accept the challenges of Life. She explains Arts remain the catalyst for all who seek successful living regardless of age.”
“Until I read this book I would not have recognized the breadth of the topic. I had a great time reading it!” -- Winnefred Homer-Smith, President. Deans & Homer
“This book is a concise and a clearly written discussion of the reasons for the art of all kinds, for all ages, and it is important enough for the 95-year-old author, who is herself an artist, to learn new computer skills and do the research to support her belief that, indeed, art does matter to us all. I recommend it for high school students and the generations that follow.” -- Jean G. Kohn, MD.MPH, Member American Academy of Pediatrics

“Keeping Ahead of Winter” is a startling account of a unique honeymoon and an insight into the world of the boating community.
