Happy Book Birthday to Nora
I've had a lot of book children now. I think Nora is my 52nd child. As families get bigger, the fuss made over each new arrival tends to get smaller. Few people would host a baby shower for their tenth child, not to mention their 52nd.
And yet. . . . each child, each book, is still special and precious.
This is why I was touched and thrilled when my writing group, The Writing Roosters, had a meeting earlier this month that turned out to be . . . a surprise party for Nora!
There were ant-themed snacks.
There was a splendid ant centerpiece.
There were glasses of wine raised to toast ants.
And my heart was filled with love for my writer friends, who do love ants. Or at least love my book about a girl who loves them.
