I am thrilled to announce that my story “First Love” was included and published in this memoir anthology.
While sitting in Sherry’s living room waiting for her to get ready for the fair, the front door burst open and in flew a drab green duffle bag filled to the brim, the pull tie barely able to contain its contents. Looking toward the door for a plausible explanation, I heard the exchange of male voices, laughter and a car door slamming shut before he appeared. To my delight, there he stood, all 5 foot 9 inches of tall, dark, handsome, brown-eyed, dark-haired, olive-skinned man in an Army uniform giving me a broad smile that said well hello, darlin’. Our eyes locked and I was instantly smitten.
