Hi, Happy May!

Dear Readers,

This month, May, is one of my favorite months. I love it so much that I even named a character after it! Twice!  May-May is one of the Golly Sisters ("The Golly Sisters Go West") The book was published in France and they changed the name of the Golly Sisters to the Sisters Oo-La-La. But she's still May-May.

Let me introduce you to my dogs. Ace is the Scotty and Pearl is the other one. Ace likes to open presents, eat treats and chase bottle rockets. Pearl likes to chew stuffed animals, eat treats and chase UPS trucks. Some of my fictional dogs are Boysie, Charlie, Mud, Tornado, Dump, Munchkin, Dopey and Scout.

Last month I got to go to a conference in Orlando and sign copies of my new book KEEPER OF THE DOVES. If you can find a copy, I hope you'll read it and let me know what you think.

Happy summer From me, Ace and Pearl!

See You next month.


Betsy and her two dogs, Ace and Pearl.
