Leaving a Legacy

Book Three is now available
As our children and grandchildren grow and head out on their own, we have fleeting unsettled moments of doubt. Have I prepared them to be successful adults in a confusing world? Do they embrace, or even know, our core values? Will they be okay?

Our awkward efforts to have these important conversations are frequently met with an embarrassed "I know, Mom" and a hastily manufactured excuse to terminate the discussion leaving us wondering if they really do know.

Completing the Summoning Stone Trilogy and publishing the last book gives me an opportunity to continue that discussion in absentia as the teen characters face challenges, mature, and make decisions. When the last page is turned, I hope my sons and grandsons, nieces and nephews will find themselves in those characters. They were, after all, the models.
